Netflix Streaming Friday - Week of December 31st, 2010
Let's face it, Predator 2 sucks. For every bit as awesome and timeless as the original "Predator" is, "Predator 2" is a shitty, lame, dated sequel steeped in '80's corn and cheese. Yet, it still manages to be awesome. How is that? Well, let me count the reasons:
1) Arnold has been replaced by Danny Glover. Yes, the "I'm too old for this shit" guy from the "Lethal Weapon" series takes over for Arnold. Awesomely bad.
2) You get to watch Bill Paxton get offed by a "Predator". Sorry, SPOILER ALERT! (Bit of trivia: did you know that Bill Paxton is the only actor to hold the dubious honor of being killed by an Alien, a Predator and a Terminator?)
3) Gary Goddamn Busey.
4) Gary Goddamn Busey with a futuristic ice gun.
5) Planted the first seeds for Aliens vs. Predator (though I'm not sure if that's a good thing after watching those movies)
Regardless, "Predator 2" is a classic entry in the shit hall of fame. And it's available right now! So go check it out.
Unless of course, you have something better to do.
