Thanks fren. I'm very passionate about the original Predator because I genuinely believe it is one of the best movies ever made.
One thing I'll note, because I talk about Predator a lot, is how people shit on Billy get killed off screen. This is the only time that having more lore to the franchise actually made sense. It was established in Predator lore that the Yautja are honorable creatures, and that the younger generations fail to withhold that code of honor. The Yautja in the original Predator was an example of this, a young and cocky Yautja who wants to kill for sport and disobeys honor. This is shown in two ways, the first is that he sneaks up and kills billy like an utter faggot, but the second is rarely recognized. The end of the movie shows the Predator self destructing, trying to take Dutch with him. This goes against pretty much every other portal of the Yautja where they respect and accept they have been beat. This ultimate and final disrespect for his adversary is in perfect character for Billy getting killed in a bitch ass way, because the Predator knew Billy could sense him and was aware of him, and that the odds were out of his favor. It's the same way the Predator in the end takes off his mask to fight Dutch, it's not out of respect, it's because it knows Dutch tricked it, and simply wants to flex and show superiority. Toying with him when he could have easily killed him, an extremely dishonorable action.
I think what a lot of people miss is the Yautja in the original Predator is kind of a faggot who fights dirty outside of refusing to kill something unarmed. >>172193904
And this just goes to show the writers don't care nor understand what I said above. This is not what a hunter would do, especially one with pride. It's not what a hunter who's a dirty cheating faggot would do either. The only excuse I can think of is that the Yautja wanted to kill off the prey he maimed, but he wouldn't let his guard down.
