5.0 out of 5 stars Rocked me profoundly, Jan. 11 2004
This review is from: Predator 2 [Import] (DVD)
Man! What an important film this is. Many movies attempt to capture, distill, un-distill, then sauté one's emotions, but fail. Now let me tell you, Predator 2 is one movie where they aren't afraid to poor on the drama, and they do it with five-gallon pitchers. The "Predator" long misunderstood as a frightening, evil, and bloodthirsty ... um ... um ... predator, is in fact shown in this film to really be a poor mixed up kid in the hell bound world of 1997 LA. Many will say that the Predator's tendency to kill, skin, and hang from scaffolds innocent people is extreme and sinister. I'm sure that we've all engaged in a little tom-foolery ourselves from time to time, and if he were on his planet following his own ancient and beautiful customs, that's all anyone there would make of it, tom-foolery. Furthermore, detractors might say that the Predator's cloaking ability is both unfair and dastardly, but it is in fact representative how frightened he is of life in general and his unwillingness to confront his problems, like puberty, head on. All in all, the Predator is just like you and me. God I love oysters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comic genious or intellagent beyond belief, Jan. 11 2004
Most of the reviews will say "Totally awsome movie dude" or some other 80's term to describe the movie, for this I feel i have to write this review. Number one: this is a movie for the smart kids, Bill and Teds relationship with each other is a symbol of decaying humanity but no matter how bad the world is there is at least one other person that feels your pain. When Bill and Ted have to find Napoleon, they are not only looking for a lost historical figure but also they are searching for their inner selves. Ted being threatend to be sent of to boot camp is quite obviously represenative of the ozone layer being destroyed. So if you think it is just some silly teen movie from the 80's think again. God I love oysters
