Time on Screen Podcast: Predator

Time on Screen is back this week, and for this episode Zach Kazan welcomes Ed Jelley to the show to talk about Predator, a film that basically personifies “80s Action Movie” about as perfectly as one can imagine. The Arnold Schwarzennger vs. alien romp in an unnamed South American jungle is full of iconic moments, including a stream of classic one-liners that is only limited by characters rapidly being knocked off by the aforementioned alien. This movie is a lot of fun, a personal favorite of Ed’s, and it also happens to be a very important watch spotting movie, featuring as it does an ana-digi Seiko that would come to be inextricably linked with Schwarzenegger himself.

Ed also spotted another ana-digi watch worn by a supporting character in the film, which begs the question: why is the ana-digi format so perfect for hunting an alien in the jungle? Ed and Zach have some theories.
