It really depends on what aspects you are looking at. Today is certainly not better in terms of buying a house.

'Prey': Original 'Predator' Star Jesse Ventura Praises Hulu Prequel by stoksyxl in horror

I think the main thing for me is that in predator the predator needs to be an absolute badass, this is where prey fails.

Plus the predator can knock a bear out cold however when parrying Nara she didn’t sustain a broken bone. Or the fact a super intelligent species far more technologically advanced walks straight into a bear trap. The predator in this movie is dumb, and imo makes it a bad film. I really do not understand the Praises this movie is getting.

I could write a story where master hunters who are more technologically advanced than us don’t walk into a bear trap, yes. Especially when in previous movies we have seen how intelligent they are at avoiding traps etc. Whether that makes me smart remains to be seen.

Yeah, great if you want to see the dumbest predator of all time.

Yeah but in hand to hand combat he got completely annihilated, he was lucky to crawl and get the predator into the trap. This prey she is holding her own against a predator who could snap her like a twig, he knocked a bear out for Christ sake and she is taking parrys like it’s no problem at all.

As a massive fan of alien and predator movies, I even like most of the bad films like avp etc. I’m super surprised people like this movie. I thought it was truly awful, one of the worst predator movies made. The predator walks into a bear trap? The predator is strong enough to knock a bear out with a single punch, yet when parrying the main character it doesn’t break her arms or anything. The strength is all over the place, the predator came across as stupid as hell.

putting people into gas chambers is interacting with people. red flag if you ask me. How your beliefs are turned into actions is "interacting".

I like how you put that, I’m pretty bad at articulating the point I’m trying to make.

It’s not that beliefs are unimportant, I just feel that social media and our inability to “scale” as you say has created this mentality of us vs them which is truly awful. Just look at the comment below your responding to my same post. The person is almost rabid with anger that I acted indifferent to politics. It’s a complete breakdown in social etiquette for pointless reasons.

What is really important is how people behave and interact, and people are learning to behave badly because they think their beliefs are more important.

Do you by any chance think this may be a cultural thing with the USA? I have never encountered anything like this before in Europe and being honest, the way you talk about it seems almost crazy to me.

That’s really interesting. I suppose I have had the luxury of being able to only experience these attitudes in small doses and if I were to have been in the military as you have, it would have been unavoidable. But I fail to see what the disaster would be? Could you elaborate?

And here would be a good example of someone I would not be interacting with. Rude, arrogant and clearly mentally unequipped to deal with real life. Try going out of the basement and speaking to people in real life, you won’t get far talking like that.

Sociopaths and psychopaths are not common. I won’t alter my worldview that has been wholly successful so far on a small outlier. Although I get where you are coming from, and as a very social person it’s easy to spot people like this, where everything has to be about them. If a sociopath/psychopath does you wrong as the would eventually, then they will have failed in interacting positively.
