The urge to just knock off anything approaching work and watch PREY is overwhelming.

I might give in.

FUCK YEAH GRIZZLY BEAR!

I’m all in on this movie. Ridiculously all in.

…I should not have just cheered. But I did.

I may even have muttered, “karma, beeyotch.”

Yup, definitely a Predator movie. Good heavens, this is amazing.

Solidly on Team Predator Icing All The Trappers, while also being Team Naru Stabbing Anyone She Goddamn Feels Like.

I contain multitudes.

LAY OFF SARII, YOU MOTHERFUCKERS

I WILL SHANK YOU IF YOU HURT THAT DOG

Love the thematic echo of baiting the hunter. What a beautifully constructed and structured story this is.

“If it bleeds, we can kill it.”

I am neutral on the Predator franchise as a whole but this? This is one helluva movie.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA BEAR TRAP

I’m sorry, I just laughed like a hyena. I like the callbacks to the original movie—and I like the Adrian Brody one—but this just goes twenty times harder and fifty better than either.

The look on Taabe’s face when Naru says, “I have a plan.”

Just beautiful.

…the amazing thing is that any of the French hit it with that volley, frankly, but that’s a small quibble.

I have to stop for dinner, but I’ll be back with the liveposting of PREY in a bit. Stay frosty.

I have returned, fortified by cheeseburger, to watch the rest of PREY.

Sarii better be okay, that’s all I’m sayin’.

Follow

Fuck yeah, give that girl a gun. I am 100% in favor of that plot point.

This fight choreography is just so beautiful. I get so lost in it I forget to take notes.

Rewatching will be in order.

NOOOOOOOOOOO

Oh fuck, I cared about that one. Oh dear. Well done, movie.

BUT NOOOOOOOO

The script for this must be beautiful. The structure is just marvelous, not a single wasted moment.

FUCK YEAH NARU, TEACH THAT INTERGALACTIC JACKASS WHO’S BOSS

The cackle that I just let out. Eye-stabbing has never been so goddamn satisfying.

GO NARU.

Oh fuck, the quicksand…OH FUUUUUUUCK.

This movie is giving me a heart attack.

Holy wow, this is the most satisfying boss fight EVAR.

So, that was PREY. The movie FLEW by, my goodness. Structurally super solid, thematically on-point, wonderfully acted, and the dog lives.

I’m going to have to watch this one a few times and take notes. Just wonderful.

It’s not often that a book or movie pulls me in so completely I stop looking “under the hood” at the structure and underpinnings. This one managed it, which is a huge and welcome surprise.

I have a soft spot for the original movie because I was so young when I first watched it, and the PREDATORS one because Adrien Brody. (We all know how I feel about him.)

But PREY absolutely blows everything else out of the water.

I am told there’s also a Comanche dub, which will be utterly glorious.

And the dog lives! SARII LIVES, AND IS THE BEST BOI EVAR!

I need this movie on DVD and everything else. With a vengeance. Holy wow and star my garters, that was *satisfying*. Two thumbs way, way up.

@lilithsaintcrow I’m planning on watching the Comanche dub sometime this weekend.
