Said "You're an ugly motherfucker" seconds before Arnie, laughed out loud. Action Classic.
Amazing amazing amazing!
And because nobody has said it here yet....GET TO THE CHOPPA!
I hadn't since it came out, and well, it was pretty much as I remembered it. Neither better nor worse. Why the ambivalence? At the time, Predator was Aliens' poorer cousin. The character of the alien in this film hints at some culture and society that is not present in the Alien films, but that's a matter for the comics writers etc. to come. I just don't care for the style of action where the big hero comes in and shoots up the place. Machine gun fire is just so boring to me now. Schwarzenegger and Carl Weathers are pretty much exactly as I remember them. The character I really love though is the one played by Bill Duke. Now that guy's awesome.
