‘Predator’ Is Actually A Critique Of Masculinity

October 16, 2017 | 3 Comments » | Topics: Movies |

by Jimmy Breck-McKye

It’s a well-worn idea that Predator is a film about masculinity. You have seven men each competing for alpha status, showboating their strength, stoicism, roughness and physical power. I’d like to go a step further. I’d like to suggest that the trials of the film are a test of masculinity, and that each man who dies does so in a way that mocks his masculine performance.

March 14, 2017 | 2 Comments » | Topics: Art, Movies |

It’s hard to imagine what the Alien movies would look like without the singular vision of Swiss artist H.R. Giger. But before Giger was hired on to design the film’s monsters and worlds in the image of his own Freudian, biomechanical nightmares, Alien director Ridley Scott and screenwriter Dan O’Bannon were struggling to imagine what their extraterrestrial horrorshow would actually look like

Giger received an unexpected call from Dan O’Bannon, a Hollywood screenwriter who was very keen for Giger to help bring his latest screenplay, Alien, to life by way of some concept art.
