    I think that terminator is more of a impactful and emotional movie but since this is 80's action I have to admit predator is more like an 80's action movie

  • Jamie Clarke

    Sad predator didn't win but it beat terminator

    They showed up with that dump truck full of cash and dumped it on Jay's lawn.

    OMG. I definitely saw this video when it came out, but wasn't watching RLM back then and now being a huge fan, I totally forgot that Jay was on one episode of Screen Junkies show. It's even weirder when you think how much fun RLM is making of Collider (and of Harloff in particular). Although back then I think Harloff and Ellis weren't with Collider yet.

    _Predator_ is an outstanding action film. But I do agree with _Die Hard_ beating it and taking the top spot. When I hear the phrase "action movie," _Die Hard_ is the film that immediately comes to mind. It's just too much of an icon. Hell, it's been out for over thirty years now, and I think it's still probably a lot of (if not most) people's favorite action movie.

    It’s like an Oscar winner playing in a Marvel movie, doing it just for the pay check. What a hack fraud.

    The moment they cut the response ( if they even had a good response ) for Jay's first riff about Milwaukee existing says alot about the people that Jay's dealing with here.

    I really want to know how the conversation went with Jay to get him on this panel. I'm sure the conversations that didn't make it in the video was a good time for everyone but man RLM really sells itself as being .... above? maybe... these types of channels. Love both SJ/Fandom and RLM so this mashup was pretty cool.
