Hunter's Prey

Another one right out of the blue. My gut is that it be a sucky knock off of Enemy Mine.

Weird. Kinda interesting but I'm not sure about this one. I'd have to see more.

:roll:

I always have to do that when I see alien planetscapes with enormous moons hanging in the sky. Little things like Roche limits, massive ocean and land tides, crustal melting from excessive heating caused by the latter of the preceding...you know, that kinda stuff sorta bothers me. ;)

Plus something about the alien's helmet (I assume that's what's on his...its left shoulder? Please don't tell me it's the skull of a fallen comrade and he's out for revenge :roll: ) bothers me.

Yep, looks like an Enemy Mine remake. (sigh)

Ditto. Looks more like a 10 millions dollars movie, we'll see...

Looks cheap as hell... but I actually quite like the look of this one though. :P

As a minimum, we must demand from SF that it be wiser than the world it speaks to.

Neat Star Wars costumes. :P

Actually, this might be a fun one to mock and throw popcorn at. I'd watch it on my movie channels.

I'm cheap that way. :)

ya i have the right scene in my mind, just not the name... as i said, i dont really care for star wars and it's been years since i've seen it :P

edit to add from wiki:

Jawa
In the fictional Star Wars, the Jawas are a pygmy and rodentlike race inhabiting the desert planet Tatooine. They are a hardworking people that work as scavengers and tinkerers. They are entirely covered in brown cloaks and their glowing yellow eyes are the only body parts visible. They use vast Sandcrawlers as transports in the desert world. These sandcrawlers can house a family unit as well as store cargo that they have collected on their journeys. Most Jawas belong to clans. Half of the clan work in the sandcrawlers while the other half live in desert fortresses in remote areas. These fortresses have high walls made from large chunks of old wrecked spaceships for protection against Tusken Raiders and krayt dragons. They also serve as a home for the rest of the Jawa clan which store the wealth gathered by the other family unit in the sandcrawlers. They appear in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed as enemies using Grenades and a Laser Pickaxe. They are usually 1m to 1.5m tall (between three and five feet). Jawas are not as short as they appear to be, because in actuality they are taller than Master Yoda, Jedi Master.[9]

As soon as that trailer started my mind started wandering; seconds after it was over, I had forgotten everything in it. Not really a good sign for the movie.

It's never a good sign when a trailer shows you the same scene over and over, but from different angles... :naughty:
