    If memory serve me correct.... Predator is not a comedy. I'm very upset with Black for putting out this carp! The story is stupid, its a fast & furious type of movie, and they trying to make the predator look like some type of demon. There is so much wrong with this movie. I want my money back.

    Original Predator and Predator 2 was "lot of fun with lot of humor"
    Besides, Rotten Tomatos are irrelevant.

    Two critics disliked it and I've course IGN didnt like it they don't like anything, whatever their review doesn't mean shit anyway.
    Edit: Oh and for the record none of the predator movie's are horror's
    Predator 1987: SCI-FI/Thriller.
    Predator 2 1990: SCI-FI/Thriller.
    Predators 2010: Fantasy/Thriller.
    The Predator 2018: SCI-FI/Thriller.

    Now at 64% so its gonna be an okay movie.....just like most of the Predator movies! Much like the Jurassic Park franchise the first movie was great and iconic but the sequels/spinoffs range from bad to just okay.

    65 % on Rotten Tomatoes...
    56% on Metacritic...
    This is the films current standing as of 09/08/2018...
    So this tells me the film is continuing to drop in ratings...
    And before it's out in the public...
    I expect the same for "T6" and "Star Wars: episode 9..."

    Since when does critics reviews matter? Evil dead got shit reviews and look where that film is now in history.

    • Tenryuunaito
      Tenryuunaito 9 months ago

      Critic reviews matter cause they study the art of filmmaking in order to evaluate a film in its entirety. They aren't the end all be all in regards to film perspective since film is subjective, but the point still stands.

      @Anne Dank I think it will crash on the 2nd weekend. It has the lowest cinemascore in the Conjuring Franchise and it has a rotten RT score from audiences. Word of mouth will spread this week.

    • Anne Dank
      Anne Dank 9 months ago +2

      In my area tho when i went to watch the nun the place was full and the theater is still getting full houses every day for it.
      But i think once the predator comes out it will calm down the nuns audiences a bit and there will be some good box office battling.
      Lets remember, the nun is getting viewed because of the conjuring hype train but the predator is a classic franchise. Should be interesting

    Not hating on Rotten Tomatoes or anything, I'm just confused as to the inconsistency of the site...
    At :58 you display two reviews (1 positive, 1 negative) both of whom rated the film 6.5/10...
    One of them displays a Rotten Tomato, the other Fresh. Can someone explain that ??

    • Brandon Reed
      Brandon Reed 9 months ago +1

      Besides the numerical rating given the site also scans the written review for key words to get a basis for the review being positive or negative. That is incorporated into the rotten or fresh rating.

    • Nobody No One
      Nobody No One 9 months ago +2

      Someone said the critic decides whether it's fresh or not regardless of the score they give. That's wrong to me if true.

    • Tenryuunaito
      Tenryuunaito 9 months ago

      +Molsy 176 There you go lying again. What proof do you have of critics disliking films because they were set out to do so no matter the quality of the films themselves? Give me actual evidence and stop making yourself look like a whiny casual.

    • Molsy 176
      Molsy 176 9 months ago

      @Battle Rifle yes but until their views change I couldn't care less about what they think

    • Molsy 176
      Molsy 176 9 months ago

      @Tenryuunaito Well see that's you assuming. I couldn't care less whether the critics agree with me or not, because they go into movies with certain prejudices against them from the onset.
      Once the critics ( and you ) realise that different genres require different criteria then I might consider listening to their views, once they throw their snobbish attitude out of the window.
      Your point is also flawed in that I listen to John campea, but I feel he is way off the mark on the last Jedi, yet still I listen to him because he isn't a snob and approaches everything with an open mind

    • Battle Rifle
      Battle Rifle 9 months ago +1

      @Molsy 176 You have to realize that critics views usually change. John Carpenter's The Thing was hated by critics for a long time until they originally changed how they seen the film.

      @Critical Movie Fan Did not know that reviewers could choose whether their review gets marked as fresh or rotten. Thanks for the info! Now I wonder if this makes the system more consistent or less consistent.

    • Critical Movie Fan
      Critical Movie Fan 9 months ago +6

      @Alberic Ponce de Leon Its not RT, the reviewer decides if their review will be fresh or rotten. Example: A reviewer gave Lady Bird a B-, but still gave the film a rotten review because he believed that the film didn't deserve a 100% on RT.

      Killa Goat I’m sorry, but Peyton Reed is no better. Antman and the wasp was a very very bland movie. Not even remotely as mediocre as Iron Man 3. The first Antman is an exception because it still had a little Edgar Wright touch in it. But Antman 2 was a dull looking movie, nothing made any sense, and it pretty much felt like it belong on Netflix or something.

      F No. That guy hired his friend, who was a pedophile and registered sex offender, but didn't tell anyone. They had to cut his scenes in the movie once it was discovered independently. Screw Black for putting a real predator in The Predator.

      Predator, Predator 2, and Predators are definitely the best in the franchise. People don't give Predators enough credit, and from what I've heard the ending is probably going to break this film.

      @Bigbad Crawford I don't agree that knowing the creature so well prevents the ability to make the film scary. It is all in execution. Most people agree that Alien:Isolation is a good, scary video game. That's even after all the Alien films and garbage prequels. The game still made the xenomorph scary by creating the same tense atmosphere that a good horror movie has.
