With all of the reboots and remakes plaguing cinema today, The Predator stands out as being refreshing for not trying to live up to or recreate what can’t (and should not) be. It stands on its own as a new storyline to follow that understands where it came from, but isn’t interested in going back. And we shouldn’t want it to.
This week, the latest movie in the recent trend of sequels/reboots of classic flicks hits the screen with The Predator. It seems like a good time for Cinema Fearité to take a look at the beloved creature feature that kicked off the franchise, 1987’s Predator.
