Yeah, I thought that was an interesting article too.


RR is a horse of a different color though, because he can make a film on his own and doesn't need help from the studio system to do anything but distro. Lucas was the first to really succeed with that type of model I think. RR is also smart to make both kids films and r-rated fare. He's really got it made right now. He can do pretty much anything he wants to do.

Yeah, it was alright. Goggins, Grace and Brody were pretty great. I was most disappointed by the sword fight, everything was in position to be a cool sequence, the long swaying grass etc... It was just staged pretty badly, and honestly needed a little bit of gore at the end of it.

I loved it that one of Goggins' characters last words to the Predator was calling it a, "stupid space faggot".


Haha, that was good. I liked all of the characters in the movie, though I thought a few certain ones were under used. I hope we will get a good sequel.
