Comments– Keeping with the macho action flicks, and because Predators comes out tomorrow and it looks good, Bridgette and I decided to rent the first two. Predator definitely lived up to the 80’s action/sci-fi hype that it has been given since it’s release. There is tons of action, ridiculous amounts of explosions, and loads of Schwarzenegger that equal out to a ton of fun and another 80’s classic. The predator itself is one of the coolest looking bad guys I have seen, and when it takes it’s helmet off, it gets even better looking. Not much depth to this film, but I didn’t expect, or want there to be. I’m lucky that Bridgette is enjoying these dumb action movies as much as I am. Good.
Branden has been a film fan since he was young, roaming the halls of Blockbuster Video, trying to find the grossest, scariest looking VHS covers to rent and watch alone in the basement. It wasn’t until recently, though, that Branden started seeking out the classics of cinema, and began to develop his true passion for the art form. Branden approaches each film with the unique perspective of having studied the art from the inside, having both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in acting. He has been a film critic since 2010, and has previously written for Inside Pulse Movies, We Love Cult, and Diehard Gamefan. His biggest achievement as a film critic, to date, has been founding Cinefessions and turning it from a personal blog to a true film website, housing hundreds of film and television reviews, and dozens of podcasts.
