    Eh, you’re not wrong… then again, would that make housecats trophy hunters, too?

    Paulie is indeed a predator, by nature.

    The other point in that movie was that he (it?) only hunted people who were armed, too. And he let pregnant females live. Fair fight? Maybe …

    Eddy’s smoke screen probably needs to be a tad thicker.

    And then there is the “Alien”. If you are light years away from Earth, who is the alien?

    Actually a very good point. There was an earlier film done in 1980 on the same exact theme and even the guy in the costume was the same as in Predator 7 years later.

    Here’s another dumb movie topic:

    The aliens were predators. So, shouldn’t the movie Alien vs Predator been about the aliens fighting themselves?

    I eat whatever I shoot. Fortunately, I’ve yet to hit a coyote.

    It isn’t often Eddy doesn’t add to the conversation, other than the pipe smoke.

    The hunters and fishers I know tend to eat what they kill (sharing it with others so friends and neighbors benefit) as well as contribute to the habitats of the prey animals, so they’re also environmentalists. Hunters are not evil and “Predator” is a classic 1980s action film.

    If ‘Predator’ was instead called ‘Trophy Hunter’ though, viewers would still be confused. There’d be some who would keep waiting for that scene where some young bimbo would exclusively target some very wealthy, elderly man.

    The predator was the antagonist of the movie, yes – but that doesn´t make it a villain. It followed its nature, similar to man, and hunted the prey that gave most resistance for it to prove its worth.

    Good point in the comic today! I’ll feel better as I’m being digested knowing it’s official label was a predator rather than a trophy hunter!

    Hunting for a trophy is a poor reason to hunt. Only man hunts for trophies. Nature’s predators hunt for food and don’t care about the size of the prey or its accoutrements.

    Trophy hunters feed more poor in Africa than charities do.

    My uncle went trophy hunting in Africa a few years ago. Before the hunting lodge was built, the local villagers shot animals for food, money, and to protect their crops and themselves. Now, hunters pay a hefty fee that varies for each type of animal they shoot. Some people come just for photography. The villagers have jobs as drivers, guides and in the lodge. The hunters can ship home heads, pelts, etc. for mounting, but all meat goes to the village. Everybody now has a good reason to protect the environment, keep the herds in balance, and watch for poachers. Even the Nature Conservancy embraces the fact that they can’t protect an ecosystem unless it benefits the local population.

    I think the name of the movie was appropriate. Also, I don’t think the alien was evil or anything else. He was just a hunter and they were prey. He accepted that as a hunter, sometimes the hunter becomes prey. Nope, I don’t see the alien as evil at all, maybe not a good enough hunter and he should have taken more humans, I doubt that anyone would have placed a limit on how many human he could take, not with how many are on the face of the earth.

    Oof. Wiley you are trying to hard. Movie title was fine then. Now that you sensitive little lefties have thought you are in control it seems so offensive. But most of us normal “fly over nobody’s to you “ don’t see your point. Lol @ you.
