Have a Hard-Boiled Holiday with 'Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang'

While there are plenty of film noir movies, and there also are plenty of Christmas movies, there is only one Christmas-noir movie. While the pedigree of Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang as a full on holiday movie may be in doubt, there is no denying that the film is chock full of holiday spirit. Take out […]

Castle of Horror: The Predator is All Over The Place And We Can't Agree

  This week we continue our Predator Retrospective by jumping straight to the brand-new reboot of The Predator from director Shane Black, who had a role in the 1987 original.

The Predator Review: Frustratingly Mediocre and Forgettable

Predator is one of those franchises that feels like there have been many films released over the years.

It's been 31 years since Shane Black was last involved in a Predator film; the last time he was in front of the camera as the relatively scrawny, eyeglasses-wearing Rick Hawkins, this time he returns at the helm as the writer and director. Between then and now there have been four other Predator films, all […]

Shane Black on Why [SPOILER] Isn't in This 'The Predator' Film

Just fair warning- this WILL contain spoilers for the Shane Black written-and-directed new The Predator film. If you are planning to see it this weekend when it opens, you might want to find something else to read instead of this. If you're still here, that probably means you've already figured out who SPOILER is, and maybe […]

This week we have the first part of a two-part Predator Retrospective with the John McTiernan's 1987 film Predator starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Predator fans are preparing to invade theaters on September 14th when Shane Black's new film hits. To help celebrate the release is, of course, a new wave of Funko Pops. There are actually quite a few new Pops in this wave; more than I was expecting. Not a bad thing, though — the more the […]

The Predator Will Focus on the Motives and Technology of the Aliens

The Predator is set for release next summer, and it's bound to a pretty interesting flick. Seeing Shane Black return as director instead of actor this time will be interesting, especially as a director of his quality taking a new stab at the invisible scorpion face.
