Next Screening? “The Predator”

What did the sisterhood used to say about “mini skirts?”

“If you’re old enough to have worn them the LAST time they came around, maybe they’re not for you THIS time.”

Doesn’t really apply to movies, although you could make the case that “If you were into ‘Predator,’ in 1987, maybe this isn’t for you.

Because over the course of 31 years, most people have outgrown Predators, Ayn Rand and heavy metal.

Two musclehead stars of 1987’s “Predator” went on to become governors. I am pretty sure I didn’t predict that in my review of the film for the esteemed Grand Forks Herald daily newspaper in movie-mad North Dakota.

Arnold and Jesse have moved on, but this alien gun-nut “hunter” has not. Six feature films, several video games and a couple of short movies later, the hunting goes on.

Boyd Holbrook, Olivia Munn and Keegan Michael Key are in this incarnation. More “Alien” than “Predator?” Dunno.

Review to follow shortly.
