Day 72: Predators (2010) Starring the dorky but dangerous Topher Grace.


The week before Thanksgiving, I received the long-awaited, Robert Rodriguez-produced Predators in the mail. I had been looking forward to this film for some timeā€”and actually considered seeing it in the theaters. So, naturally, I put off watching the movie for a few weeks. I don’t know if this is due to the level of my expectations and not wanting to be devastatingly disappointed when it didn’t live up to these high standards; or just because my husband really, really wanted to watch this film with me and I promised I would wait for him before I popped it in the DVD player. Probably the latter. Anyway, I (er, we) finally sat down and watched the film this past weekend. I will be honest here: I was a little disappointed. Funny enough, this disappointment didn’t stem from my reaction to the film; but rather that my husband (who pleaded with me to not watch this film without him, thus making  the poor DVD sit on the shelf alone and unwatched for a few weeks) fell asleep about twenty minutes into the film. And so my Friday night was me sitting on the sofa surrounded by a snoozing husband, three passed out cats, and a dog who slept through the entire movie, only waking up long enough to lick himself (the dog, not the husband). Good times. On the plus side, the film was actually pretty fun.
