Predator 2 : Failure due to casting of Glover

Re: Failure due to casting of Glover

You take nothing from me.

All the repetitive, moronic nonsense you post is yours alone.

Sucks to be you.

Sucks to be you. Your avatar matches your bipolar disorder.

Re: Failure due to casting of Glover

I understand you're upset that I'm so easily pwning you.

But when you're so upset that you can't come up with your own material and begin making bogus psychological diagnoses, you should just stop.

You're humiliating yourself.

No one gives a rats what you think, least of all me. You can’t even own your own mental and aggression disorders. Have your meds run out, or perhaps they aren’t strong enough?!

I don't have any disorders.

You, however, are clearly falling apart.

Your autism doesn't allow any room for lateral thinking. Mix that in with your bipolar disorder and an eruption of inanity will ensue.

Now don't forget….

Successful enough though to keep on spawning sequels and ridiculous spinoffs such as AvP etc.

Is it creative to have an uncreative signature such as this one?

Re: Failure due to casting of Glover

It had a concept that has failed to work too much magic, but gets churned out anyway. Depends who's watching them. I personally don't care for any of the predator films after the second.

Norman! What did you put in my tea?

Re: Failure due to casting of Glover

The only one I like out of all of them is Predators, the one with Adrian Brody where they end up on a planet for sport by the predators.
I was expecting a sequel but I guess that is not to be.

IMO the worst is Predator Requiem where the whole thing is just dumb and it is too friggen dark to see anything and what is going on.

A very close second would be AvP where suggesting the Predators breed captured Aliens for the sport of hunting them under the Antarctic ice makes it way too unbelievable even for sci fi.

Re: Failure due to casting of Glover

I didn't like Predator Requiem - '07 at all. The worst one. It was just a paint by numbers presentation with no soul. I also don't care much for Predators - '10 with Brody. The concept was interesting, but I just found it difficult to get fully invested or be awed by it.

As for The Predator - '18, which I thought may have had some redemption, I can barely recall it.

The first got it right with the super duper tough guy action hero fighting off the monster and it seamlessly blended a combat film in with a sci-fi creature feature.

This second installment, took a vibrant stylish approach with awesome visuals, nasty voodoo and some well executed excitement, but lacked a little something in the casting arena, with the predator vs a genuine tough guy hero. This aspect disappointed audiences, who obviously flocked to the first because of Arnie.

Re: Failure due to casting of Glover

I'm not a fan.
I just checked them out here and there when I saw them on TV.

Do you have any interest at all in the newest one of Pred. vs Amer. Indians?

Again, I might watch it if I come across it out of curiosity on the tele.

Re: Failure due to casting of Glover

Haven't heard of that. Must be a "woke" predator movie by the sound of it.

Norman! What did you put in my tea?

Re: Failure due to casting of Glover

Exactly.

And get this.
It is going to be a woman who is terrible at doing pretty much anything who takes it on.

If this had been in the 50's the Pred. would have wiped out whole tribes and we would have been cheering it on unlike now where it's the opposite.

Re: Failure due to casting of Glover

"Glover is a fine actor, but he was not leading man material and could not sell this film. It looks and sounds great and is a fine sequel in its own right, but its missing the beefcake type hero and Glover seems to be trying too hard to make it all work as an image. "

That is kinda the point of the movie, I think.
Take an average Joe and have him defeat a cunning enemy.
IMO this works instead of having the usual suspects of action stars.

That ended up being the director's intention, but it didn't quite end up ringing box office bells either by that decision. For me, I find Glover a little lost trying to carry the film. He had Gibson to round him out in Lethal Weapon films.

Re: Failure due to casting of Glover

We got an excellent story with "average Joe" Glover in the lead.

Try not to worry your little head about box office. It's such trivial stuff and it's weird you're so obsessed with it for P2.

Did you have a financial investment in P2?

Did you have a friendly wager?

Box office is the point of my op. I don't believe Glover fitted like a glove and he was not a box office drawcard.

The director wanted his own vision at the expense of making a more popular film, with a more gutsy, tough guy hero action.

Norman! What did you put in my tea?

Re: Failure due to casting of Glover

I and many other Predator fans are glad Glover played the lead. It made for a superior story. It worked much better than if he had used someone like Segal or Van Damme.

Whine about box office all you want. Glover as the lead made it a better film.

Now who is speculating.

It worked to a certain extent. It didn't entirely work, because Glover left it a little flat.

Norman! What did you put in my tea?

Re: Failure due to casting of Glover

Just try imagining them in the role.

If you're honest with yourself, you'll realize Glover's every man was perfect.

Box office is a different story. If you truly believe those others would have brought in more box office, you should still be able to admit Glover worked really well as the cop dealing with something from another world.

Why did the film need an everyman. Oh, he played a cop, how original…..


Why would they spend an extra $15mill on the budget compared to the original, refuse to pay Arnie what he wanted, which apparently wasn't much more in fiscal context and then cast someone that they couldn't really headline above the title?

They took a chance on Glover and the choice fizzed. Shortsighted and agenda drenched Fox company decision in the end.

You certainly don't mind humiliating yourself with repetition and desperate talk about bean counting.

Re: Failure due to casting of Glover

Partly agree.

Movie would have been flawed either way but it feels really odd with Glover as the lead. He’s cool but his type of charisma wasn’t a good fit.

I didn't expect a masterpiece from a film like this, yet Glover's leading presence grated on me a bit when I last watched it. It was "odd" and that is a fitting term.

Norman! What did you put in my tea?

Re: Failure due to casting of Glover

He strangely turned out to be a good pick for the lead. For those who havent watched it would say no.

Re: Failure due to casting of Glover

He wasn't a great pick though and that is my point.

And there are those that have watched it, have been let down. Many fans had the image of Arnie from the first and it disappointed them that he wasn't in it. It was never going to hold up as well.

Audiences would very likely have flocked to it, had another bigger action star headlined the film.

Norman! What did you put in my tea?

Re: Failure due to casting of Glover

That wasnt the point of the film. This one was slightly more realistic in the sense that the made the Predator even badder, more aggressive, and bigger. He was the star as it shouldve been had a moron like Arnold not taken over. The Predator was never meant to be an Arnold film but a Predator Film. Since he came over they bought the idea of selling out but that wasnt the original concept. The Film is supposed to revolve around Predator. There is plenty of other films that Arnold can do that he can take over. Predator was not one of them as you can see with the follow ups. Many fans are brain dead idiots that would like to see a meathead( them in their minds) kill a big savage beast. In reality the outcome might not be so favorable.

Re: Failure due to casting of Glover

Predator 2 is a decent sequel for a predator film, but it could have been better, had Glover not been in the lead. He could have still starred, but his name didn't carry the film to any resounding results. It works and it doesn't and Glover seemed a bit of a strange choice to carry the film.

Ok, you other racist, who is in denial of Glover not making Predator 2 explode like Arnie could and did in the first.

You shouldn't try to diss other people's I.Q.

It makes you look dumber than dirt.

BTW, I assure you my I.Q. is very high.

Evidence that yours is very low is borne out by how terrible you're doing against me.

Your performance is ghastly and you don't even realize it.

He's got aggro issues and likely born out of excessive alcohol or depressant consumption. It makes him disorientated and toxic.

Bizarre. Speculation is all you do.

And you're wrong every time.

Let's see….so far, you've incorrectly guessed that I'm a woke angry black man with excessive alcohol or depressant consumption.

With a track record that bad, people are going to have fun guessing what your problem is.

Most should start with assuming you're definitely disorientated and toxic.

Re: Failure due to casting of Glover

You still haven’t told me why Predator 2 failed, apart from the main reason I’ve already stated in casting Glover as lead.

Your ass was born wrong.
