The 1st one, Predator with Arnold, and Predators vs. Aliens, I'm pretty sure it was the one where they find the pyramid under the ice.

H.R. Giger came up with the iconic look for the xenomorph, even though at the time the acrylic painting he did was supposed to be more of a biomechanical pseudo-sexual monster

Wrong, it was James Cameron who said to Stan that he would like a monster with mandables on an airplane, they worked out the design together. Also Alien is designed by H R Giger.

The predators blood doesn't neutralize a xenomorph's blood as you described and as shown in the scene at the 4:20 mark. That was the predator showing the girl that an alien's blood will burn through anything except for parts of the alien's body. The predator cut off the exoskeleton of the alien's head and gave it to the girl to use as a shield of sorts.

I grew up loving the alien and predator movies, AVP was so cool to me. You say humans and predators cant be friends, sorry to burst your bubble but in the comics ocassinally its been proven predators can befriend humans or the very least tolerate them. Warriors respect warriors in their culture.

Some of the comments concerning the intelligence and social structure of the predator race vs the Xenomorphs got me wondering something. Predators are more common with us than xeno's and they do things, build things, teach, etc... While xeno's may have intelligence, they've only been potrayed as killers and breeders. Say for example, the xeno's wipe out all life where they are, what do they do then? Just curious if they have any other traits or do they just die off until an egg finds a face again?

Predators are smarter then alien they have good skills i like predators then alien
Michael Fontaine (9 days ago)
I would say Predator 1 is the best then AvP 1 i love the concept from then Predator 2 when I noticed the skull I told my mom look at that she loves Aliens movies . I liked Predator 2 and Predators had 4 types of Predators I think ? I forgot how many actually ! But the one Predator you feel bad for him as he's stuck in the chains , he's the original one being held buy the berserker Predators he helps the humans . Then my opinion of AvP2 it was ok I didn't have a bit of an issue with it just it sucked at the end . Now I haven't seen the new one yet I'm hoping to really soon I haven't had much time to do anything so I'll get 2 hrs to kill ! Lol

And turned out The Predator movie done by Mr.Shame Block became the worst predator movie ever created and 1 of the worst movie in 2018. it made AvP movie a great film.
StubbsDK (16 days ago)
Wow... Please study the lore, there are MANY examples of humans and predators teaming up, and some examples of them ending up respecting eachother... Also, it’s pred-alien, not pre-dalien, and on alien, it was H.R. Giger, not Stan Winston....
Terence Smith (17 days ago)
My best monsters ...kudos the creator of them,and terminator!
Anthony Pina (18 days ago)
God rest his soul! But sorry Stan Winston did not design The Alien"! I would know I am Special F\X artist , I have worked with all people mentioned.

Am I the only one that thinks it's weird af that literally NOBODY ever mentions that the PS2 game Concrete Jungle is in direct conflict with AVP Requiem as to how humans obtain Pred tech?
Galax-Zee (23 days ago)
And was ruined in the new 2018 movie
the truth (24 days ago)
Predators is my fav, Requiem needs to be erased from history.
john wheatman (26 days ago)
I was always under the impression that the self destruct button they press liek the one when he gets battered to arnie was nuclear like when theyre in the helicopter and they see the mushroom cloud obviously not are well what do I know lolxx
john wheatman (26 days ago)

That 1st predator sucked!

Regarding humans and predators co-existing/hunting together: The novel Hunter's Planet tells the circumstances that have to happen first (Basically you have to come to their aid and /or save their lives to be considered. Then prove that you're tough enough to hang with em.) Pretty darn good read. Came out in the 90's.
Jakub pogubila (1 month ago)
Predators was an awesome movie they need a sequel picking up right after where they get the predator tech dropped off and maybe they fight the 4 armed predator from the comic

Hey H.R. Giger designed the Xenomorph ! Well guess what you expect from gamesspot

Isaac Simmons (1 month ago)
My thing is after seeing The Predator, I wonder what is the future for the franchise. Bought a lot of cred with Shane Black directing, but it got weak from adding in the human element again. Olivia Munn I like but I think the way they wrote her character was trying to be "Riley", of Aliens, meets neo-feminist. Someone should write more of the backstory of all three, Aliens, Predator, Engineers, and make it a War for Earth.
Rolando Rodriguez (1 month ago)
The first Predator movie was my favorite. Also I do consider humans and yautja teaming up to be common and very old concept, at least concerning xenomorphs in the comics.
kenneth kennair (1 month ago)
These guys need to know everything about a particular universe before making mistakes in their analysis. Everyone knows the comic and paperback that shows noguchi not only teaming up with them but actually becoming part of the culture for a bit.

1987 Predator still the quintessential Predator movie

Predator is the best. In my personal top 10 all time movies. Predator 2 and Predators is a joint 2nd position. They're over the top, fun action adventures. AVP was shit. Corny, predictable and just a cash-in movie. AVP2 was even shitter. Took for ever for anything to happen and when it did, it was all in darkness so you couldn't see anything. A truly abysmal movie. And now we have The Predator (bet it took weeks to come up with that title)... If you e heard this movie is crsp... who ever told you is correct. Its utter shit. It's like The Mummy with Brendan Fraiser. Theres just too much happening too quickly. And the plot is utter dribble. The Predator is just a stupid 'monster movie's that just so happens to be a Predator, but like it was made for kids who have never seen the first Predator movie.
Ross Gillis (1 month ago)
Still love the first one. Saw it in the theatre in 1987 and it’s still the best IMO.

Convenient that the Predators labeled the tiers of their social hierarchy in plain monosyllabic English

Humans and Yautja can be friends. In fact in the comic books there was a human who became a hunter of the Yautja.

"Aliens and humans can't be friends." Umm...did you even READ the comics? Look up Big Momma and Machiko Naguchi (prolly spelled that wrong...my bad) a human chick that was welcomed into Yautia society for TWO FUCKING YEARS... and a plethora of stories with Yautja/human alliances and teamups against other enemies besides xenomorphs.

Both Avp & predetors (2010) are good movies.I will recommend them.
Zap Rowsdower (1 month ago)
Umm no... humans and predators can be friends, how do you think the elder predator got the old 1715 pistol... he helped a human. Plus the comics show it.

There's only one question I've been asking what's the Predators lifecycle we all know what the alien lifecycle but whats the predators
MusicMatic707 (1 month ago)
It was either in one of the omnibus books or maybe one of the novels but their life cycle is uber long. Several hundred years possibly. Usually only the most skilled hunters reach this age.
Adam Brandist (1 month ago)
Predator catapulted Arnold to a name lmfao do you even know what your on about arny was already a massive name in movies, the terminator, commando,Conan all before the Predator
khartog01 (1 month ago)
Humans and Predators can be friends. There is a whole series of novels and comics of a human female joining a predator clan.

Select Obvi (2 months ago)
I thought Predators self destruct when they lose to remove signs of there existence and they have a timer to give the one who beat them time to escape the blast due to there honor ...

Chief Steps-In-Poo (2 months ago)
Did anyone notice the blooper in part 2? When the original predator has his mask on his infrared has the blue background. When he removes it the background is red. In the second movie, when he takes mask off the background is still blue. Just noticed that.

H R Giger designed the Xenomorph. Do some research.
Stelian Nikolov (21 days ago)
Stan Winston created the Xenomorph in reality with animatronics and costumes.

phoboskitty m (2 months ago)
Also watch AVP 2 do not listen to this guy.. It's not a great film, sure but if you are a fan of all things, alien or predator might as well give it a go It's a hoot Especially when the predalien finds the Maternity ward
phoboskitty m (2 months ago)
Predators and humans teaming up, comes originally from the comics, they team up again with colonial marines. Like in the AVP movie to kill xenomorphs Also in Predators where the humans help a captured predators They are not a one dimensional movie monster

@1:15 the predator version of the macarena.....
I am a predator
R. S. (3 months ago)
Most ridiculous characteristic is that bullets have little effect on them. This is a glaring factual error and cop-out by the creators of this mythical uber-beast. It has a physiology, wears no body armor, and even bleeds when shot but that hardly slows it down? Nonsense! As Dutch said "If it bleeds, we can kill it." So why the ___ not?
nobodyzero (3 months ago)
If they created Xenomorph's ? Did "The Engineers" (in 'Prometheus'), also Create "Predators" ? Because that would make sense.

Predators 2010 is definitely my favorite. They should make a sequel to that
Jackenstein Meoffberg (3 months ago)
I didn’t care much for the story in the newest predator movie.
I accauly would rather meet predator then alien,but I like alien Abit more
magnetictheory (3 months ago)
Yeah Stan Winston designed the xenomorph like Andy Warhol painted the Mona Lisa. I've never stopped watching and thumbed down a video so fast in my life.
