Predator Berserker Mask

I have probably seen Predator and Predator 2 a combined amount of 100 times over the past two decades. There is something very cool knowing that there could be an alien culture that is based on a warrior culture and I love their weapons and when they go to battle. Recently I had a chance to get myself the new Predator Berserker Mask from AlterEgoComics and after a month of figuring out where to place it, I mounted it right above my door so I can see it when I’m sitting at my desk.

The quality of the mask is amazing, it really looks like the real mask from the movie, and for those who don’t remember the Berserker is the big Predator is Predators, the one that pretty much rips people apart. There are other Predator Masks out at this time and I’m contemplating getting another one but not sure if I should get the Falconer, Tracker, or Stalker, all of them look intimidating. The coolest part is when the lights are off in the room and the red LEDs are on, looks like its really aiming for something. Now I want to watch all the Predator movies again, and AVP doesn’t count even though it was a cool concept to begin with but the execution of the AVP movies is a disaster.

Review: Predators

Mercenaries, murderers, gangsters, and convicts, they were the most feared men on Earth. But now they’re a long way from home, and when the predators become the prey, fearless mercenary Royce (Adrien Brody) prepares for the fight of his life. And he’s not alone, because Mexican gangster Cuchillo (Danny Trejo), Israeli Defense Forces veteran Isabelle (Alice Braga), notorious mass murderer Stans (Walton Goggins), Russian Special Forces operative Nikolai (Oleg Taktarov), RUF death squad member Mombasa (Mahershalalhashbaz Ali), and sword-wielding Yakuza Hanzo (Louis Ozawa Changchien) are all armed to the teeth, and out for blood. The odd man out is Edwin (Topher Grace), a once-prominent physician whose career came to an end following a big scandal. When the motley crew encounters Noland (Laurence Fishburne), a resourceful human who has somehow managed to survive on the alien’s hunting grounds for some time, they prepare to take the ultimate stand against the most powerful Predators yet.

Robert Rodriguez knows how to make a movie, he took the Predators story to a different level, and in this movie surpassing the original with Arnold. Adrian Brody seemed to be an odd character at first but he pulls off the lethal mercenary perfectly, the whole bunch of them just fit perfectly together. Watching the trailers doesn’t tell you much about the story but when it comes together your surprised and you love it. Those new Predators redefine the Predators Universe, different types for different types of hunting, that there are wars between them for supremacy of the hunter and it just keeps getting better. The story is great, the action is nonstop, and you know the next one is going to be good if Rodriguez takes the reign again, if you are a Predator fan then this should be at the top of your list, and if you want watch an action movie then this movie will not disappoint.

Modern Predator – Recut

I have always been a fan of the Predator franchise, the first two being the best of the franchise. This just set the standard, I remembered seeing in the late 80s in my aunt’s apartment in London, and I remember seeing it on Betamax back in the day. I’m still impressed when I watch it today, the most kick-ass team of the 80s put together to fight a formidable hunter. This is a recut of the of trailer for modern day viewing with music from the movie “Inception”, makes me want to watch it again. I just can’t wait for the new Predator movie, that is going to be some off the charts action and a real tribute to the Predator franchise unlike the last few movies.

Predators – Trailer

Predators

I am a huge fan of all Predators movies, since Schwarzenegger to the AVP series which were pretty bad. I always liked the Predators as noble hunting creatures which only acknowledge strength but the last few movies were nothing short of a disaster, nothing beats the first two and I loved the one with Danny Glover. I heard of the reboot and was a bit worried about it but it seems that Robert Rodriguez has taken it back to its original story with a depth of cast that is going to make it one hell of a summer blockbuster. An Elite Warriors picked from Earth are dropped on the Predator homeworld to be hunted as game for the Predators, but this time there are different kinds of Predators, “Super Predators” as previously hinted with different ones specialized in different types of combat. The interesting part is this Elite Warriors, part of the team is Adrien Brody and Laurence Fishburne, but the trailer will get you worked up to see this movie in July.
