What part of TURN YOUR BRAIN OFF was unclear? Who gives a shit? It is still infinitely more believable than casting Denise Richards as a nuclear physicist. People seem to have a seriously ridiculous expectations for what amounts to a stupid action movie. The role does not exactly scream the necessity for Oscar caliber talent.Isn't the fact that Munn is supposed to be playing an evolutionary biologist kind of make every scene of hers bullshit by default?
So you don't agree that the beginning is very good, the actors are good and there's some good humor, dialogues, and character interactions? And I don't know how you're okay with the ending, it's just horrendous, no matter if you turn your brain on or off, I haven't seen a single person who liked it, even those who loved the rest of the movie hated it.I saw it last week and agree with nothing KDCoolman stated. Turn your brain off and just enjoy the ride. In a whole lot of ways it is full-on throwback heaven. I absolutely don't need a smart Predator movie that breaks new ground. That cake has already been baked. I just needed it to kick ass and be a shit ton of fun and it achieved that for me. Less that bullshit Olivia Munn scene - when you see it you will know exactly what I am talking about. I mean what was the point? Otherwise ----- All good!

For those who haven't seen the movie yet, but read the script, the ending I mean wasn't in the script and was part of the reshot third act. And I have no idea what the hell they were thinking.
That's an interesting point of view, but there won't be any sequels. Just like Alien, Predator will probably die with this movie for another couple of years (at least). That ending could open interesting directions for the franchise, sure, but they never use them, we are talking about Fox who screwed up most of Alien and Predator movies since 1987. They basically screwed up all the best ideas, chances and opportunities to make a great movie in Alien/Predator universes since 80s, so even if there's new Predator, it'll be another reboot/"true sequel to the original", which will be using the same concept and playing on nostalgia, they won't be using Shane's directions or characters for sure.The point is that it opens up a whole bunch of directions to take this franchise next and sends the series to a badass place we have never been before in every direction.
I thought that last scene felt like another lazy, even absurd, attempt at MCU-like universe (there's even joke about it), it didn't feel like retro at all to me.Added to that ----- does it not feel like a full on 80s resolution? I enjoyed the retro vibe of it after the fact.
Was Bud Yorkin involved?One thing i want to mention to anyone who hates the very last scene; Rumor is that it wasn't even part of the re-shoots done by Black, but something which was added by studio about month ago during two more days of re-shoots, and it's painfully obvious that it really doesn't fits the rest of the film.
