Episode #162: Summer Schwarzenegger Series 4: Reflections on Rewatching Predator (1987) with Adam from @mom_gave_them_away

This week marks the fourth in a four-part summer Arnold Schwarzenegger 80s action fest where Adam from the Instagram page @mom_gave_them_away and I rewatch four classic Arnold movies we originally saw as kids and discuss our reflections (listen to episode 159, 160, and 161 here).  Today, continue where we left off last week with Predator.  Like The Terminator, it’s a film that fits multiple categories (sci fi, action, horror), and in some ways, it’s pretty hard to beat in any of those categories.  Enjoy a little collection of animated gifs from the film:

The podcast now has a page on Facebook, so head over there and to Instagram to check out some scenes from the film.  To end on a humorous note, despite the fact that these movies had a degree of badassery that no one could deny, the video games that came out in association with them with pretty horrendous.  But I’ll let the AVGN do the honors:

 

Adam, you’re welcome to BE BACK anytime!  In the meantime, check out all the excellent custom action figure work he does for a taste of some truly heroic work.

Between Two Worlds, the synth EP follow up to Long Ago Not So Far Away is now out for streaming on Bandcamp.  

The bonus track, called “Flight of the Cloudrider” has a 80s movie mashup music video (see if you can identify all the movies!) which is available on youtube.   This app was largely created with the iphone app Auxy.

Check it out!

As always, thanks for listening!
