Personally I would rather see John McTiernan direct it.

Hopefully the director's style translates to the western world better than his first name...Nimrod.

Nimrod is one of the oldest names in the world, and it means "hunter."

That's what you get, Drink, for being such an annoying Melville fanboy.

Well, one of those Nimrods must have goofed up at one point; maybe an arrow in the foot?

It was his full name that concerned me upon initial viewing.

I thought I read Nimrod Anal.

Then I looked at it again and it read Antal.

Must be an odd Freudian slip of some sort.

Anyway, about the name Nimrod...

I read somewhere that Nimrod was the name of a Viking who was crucified on a pine tree then burned, along with hundreds of ornaments (Thus, the first Christmas tree was erected).

Anyway, back on topic... so this is meant to be the third Pred in the series?
I always wondered why it was never made earlier.
I don't think the sequel did poorly at the B.O.

Is that a good thing? So far he produced mostly movies he directed.

I have faith in the guy that he would oversee that this would come out as a good movie.

He was originally attached to direct it years ago when it was still called PREDATOR 3. That was before the first AVP was made. He was also attached to the new CONAN movie at some point. Supposedly, he was trying to court Schwarzenegger back into the role. Milius was attached too at one time but apparently he wanted HHH(Huh) of all people to play Conan. I figured if they did bring Schwarzenegger back (and this was also several years ago) he would be in his later Conan days when he did finally become a king and that his son would be portrayed in the film, too.

For what it's worth - I've heard this is solidly entertaining.

Found this pretty boring.
It brought nothing new to the table.
In fact, it probably took stuff away that should have been left alone.

The chick has more testosterone than Adrien Brody could ever have.

There is nothing more threatening about bigger predators, in fact they look silly.
Fishbourne gives one of the worst performances, in a mainstream film, I've ever seen.

I pretty much agree with FC, but I didn't find anything wrong with Brody who seems to be in everything these days. It just seemed an unnecessary movie that added next to nothing to the mythology. It's essentially a remake of the original movie, only changing the locale from a jungle on Earth to a jungle on another planet. The budget could have been spent on something more original, or something else entirely.
