Nick Nadel invited me to watch PREDATOR for his podcast MOVIES MY FRIENDS HAVE NEVER SEEN. (Each episode Nick watches a well-known film with someone who’s seeing it for the first time.)
I won’t spoil the movie (which, y’know, came out over 30 years ago) but I will spoil the podcast by telling you that I saw PREDATOR as a movie about Vietnam.

These are some of the trading cards I mention in the episode. (Thanks DinosaurDracula.com for the image.)
