Over the last few years, the teen comedy has gone through a radical change. Thanks to films like Superbad and Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist, the teen comedy is going back to the roots of John Hughes by going the route of Judd Apatow. The new teen comedy High School is looking to be the film that manages to do both instead of one or the other. Basically a film for anyone who spent the better part of their high school days being high on drugs, High School actually manages to have a lot of laughs along the way.
Some of the world’s deadliest people – soldiers, mercenaries, killers, rapists – find themselves dropped into the middle of a hostile jungle. Soon, they realize they are being hunted… and that they are no longer on our world. So begins Predators; a sequel to the original, singular-titled, Arnold Schwarzenegger-starring sci-fi action hit from 1987. And as it turns out, it’s become the only sequel to that movie that’s truly worth the effort.
Starring: Adrien Brody (The Pianist; King Kong), Topher Grace (Spider-Man 3; TV’s “That 70′s Show”), Alice Braga (City of God; I Am Legend), Walton Goggins (TV’s “The Shield”), Oleg Taktarov (Righteous Kill; Bad Boys II), Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix; TV’s “CSI”) and Danny Trejo (Planet Terror; Heat)
So, how does Predators measure up? I’ll use the Flickchart ranking method to see how…
