“Predator” 2018: it would all be funny if it wasn’t tasteless

September 13, “Predator” (the Predator) returned to the big screens. The film was directed by Shane black (Shane Black), who played one of the roles in the cult action film in 1987. We watched the sequel to the famous franchise and tried to understand what “Predator 2018″ has to do with the original, if at all.

Everyone knows the merits of the first two films of 1987 and 1990.

From such a sticky weight you want to get rid of as soon as possible — and it’s easy to do, you can exit the session or close the player window. “Joker” – not dense, it oppressive terrible hopelessness of the broken destiny and romanticization of mental disorders and violence. There is no escape from this hopelessness.Like any self-respecting comic book character that has existed for decades, the Joker has several origin stories. And none of the comics are the same as what Todd Phillips and Joaquin Phoenix showed in the film.Phillips told the story of a sick man. Continue reading
