For our last couple of episodes we’ve been really looking at themes within the books, movies or television shows we’ve covered. For this episode, we are dissecting this movie to talk about everything under the sun. Just like a classic review! If you want our written thoughts on the film though, be sure to read our review here! Also make sure to check out our episode on the original Predator with A Podcast about Something!
BUT WAIT THIS ONE HAS DEPTH
As you’ll listen to this episode, you’ll find out that we have a lot of the same appreciations for The Predator. However, you’ll find out that there is a lot about this film that we disagree on. One thing that both of us really agree this film does well, though, is its’ handle of mental health themes of PTSD and autism. We’re diving down deep into these subjects.

WELCOME HOME, MR. DAN ROCKWOOD!
For this adventure throughout the multiverse, we welcome back Mr. Dan Rockwood, our resident movie dude. We are breaking this movie down to its’ core. If this is your first time ever experiencing our show, this is the perfect platform to do just that. Victims and Villains exists as the marriage between pop culture and suicide prevention. The Predator excellently equips great action, storytelling and marries it with terrific blend of numerous mental health themes.
