Time to let ol’ Painless out of the bag. With the release of Shane Black’s The Predator in theatres this past weekend, it was finally time for us to revisit the often requested Predator franchise… and yes, for better or worse (definitely worse), that includes the Alien vs. Predator movies too. On this episode we discuss a variety of topics including the capabilities and limitations of Predator technology, the specifics of their moral code, the relative importance of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s presence and some of the expanded lore surrounding the movies. So is Predator 2 a terrible sequel or does it make some solid additions to the mythology? How the hell do you pronounce Yautja? Where did the Alien vs Predator concept first originate? Which Film Junk member is an unabashed AvP addict and who is the true Pred Head? Get to the chopper and download this month’s premium podcast below.
