Predator ★★★★½

Twists are for pussies. No fuss, down-the-line, straight up and super-effective, it is what it is: a bunch of muscle-bound freaks fighting an alien in the jungle.

The alien itself, the eponymous Predator, has stood the test of time, and while some movies have since diluted the stock somewhat, this monster's sheer physical and technological superiority still gives me the willies. I'm glad it was Arnie doing the fighting and not me.
