Bloody Noir: ‘Predator 2’ Revisited – ScreenHub Entertainment

There are few mysteries more compelling to me than the hatred for Predator 2. Sure, this first sequel to the 1987 classic isn’t without its faults. Its more colorful and extravagant style could be off-putting to fans of the more quiet dread the original builds up. However, I’ve always enjoyed this film, and given some of the recent developments in the series, perhaps now is … Continue reading Bloody Noir: ‘Predator 2’ Revisited – ScreenHub Entertainment

‘Halloween’ Is Good, But Almost Great – ScreenHub Entertainment

David Gordon Green’s Halloween has opened to an impressive response. It has surpassed Wes Craven’s Scream as the highest grossing slasher film of all time, and revitalized interest in a series that many thought was long dead. But is the movie good? In short, yes. Green’s Halloween has many moments of cinematic artistry the likes of which the series hasn’t seen since Carpenter’s 1978 original. But … Continue reading ‘Halloween’ Is Good, But Almost Great – ScreenHub Entertainment

A Different Kind of Star Wars: An ‘Aliens vs. Predator’ Retrospective – Screenhub Entertainment

These days, it’s hard to think of Aliens vs. Predator without rolling your eyes. The title evokes less than pleasant memories of the 2004 film and its abysmal sequel, films that seemed more like B movie fluff than anything else.

James Cameron’s Aliens is a rare breed of sequel, one that manages to be a worthy successor to the original but still maintain its own identity. Expanding on the universe of the original, Cameron’s film revealed more about the creature, and included what fans have assumed for years was the monster’s proper name. The name ‘xenomorph’ has appeared in numerous incarnations of the series such … Continue reading ‘Xenomorph’ Isn’t The Alien’s Actual Name – ScreenHub Entertainment

‘The Predator’ Trades Horror For Humor With Mixed Results – ScreenHub Entertainment

Seeing the original Predator at 12 introduced me to a leaner, meaner kind of movie I hadn’t yet been exposed to. Times were different then. There were only two Predator movies, Aliens vs. Predator hadn’t yet left comics and video games, and sequels were something everyone was clamouring for. Times have changed. Now fans of this series react at best with scepticism when a new … Continue reading ‘The Predator’ Trades Horror For Humor With Mixed Results – ScreenHub Entertainment
