Bill Duke
Vagina-faced Alien

This week on TMR, Ryan shows us his depressing childhood of endlessly quoting 1987’s “Predator.” We talk about a simpler time when heroes could toss off hate speech and homophobic epithets and still be heroes, glistening Mountains of Men, Steve shows off his Predator First Aid skills and a pig makes Ryan cry.

A team of special force ops, led by a tough but fair soldier, Major “Dutch” Schaefer, are ordered in to assist CIA man, George Dillon, on a rescue mission for potential survivors of a Helicopter downed over remote South American jungle. Not long after they land, Dutch and his team discover that they have been sent in under false pretenses. This deception turns out to be the least of their worries though, when they find themselves being methodically hunted by something not of this world. – via IMDB
