I was only six when the original Death Wish came out, but IIRC we saw it at the local drive-in theater.

But heck, they're redoing movies now that were out in my adult years....like Point Break.

For the Patriots of this country, the Constitution is second only to the Bible for most. For those who love this country, but do not share my personal beliefs, it is their Bible. To them nothing comes before the Constitution of these United States of America. For this we are all labeled potential terrorists. ~ Dean Garrison

Johnny English Strikes Again has been online for a few days and it won't even be in theaters until the Friday before Halloween. That's 5 1/2 weeks later. That's crazy. I'm glad I don't make my living on movie sales. It was so blurry I couldn't see much at first but skipped back and forth until I saw the title. I think I can wait until October to see it.

I've never been much for science fiction. With that said I liked the original "Predator", and watched it until after the now famous jungle shootout scene.

I remember my thoughts after watching "Predator" and I suspect that if this were really happening...an alien came to earth periodically to hunt humans...that someone could sell it as an adventure.  Provide transportation, equipment, training and any other support for individuals or small teams who wished to go up against the best. 

There is a segment of Humans who would respond to this as a challenge...an opportunity to prove one self...rather than a murderous invader.

"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
— Daniel Webster

Predators like to go after the strongest of the people they're hunting, so I'm safe.

Black Panther is on Netflix now.  I'd watch, but I'm afraid it's just going to be a 2+ hour lecture.
