Better with Plissken: Escape from the Black Pearl!

Snake Plissken - Escape from the Black Pearl! It was brought to my attention that we’re way overdue for another Better with Predator segment, where I rewrite an unlikely story or movie by adding Predator. (Many thanks to Wikipedia, whose movie plot entries are incredibly helpful!) At the same time, my partner-in-crime, Angela Wallace, chooses the same story but puts her take on it by My-Little-Pony-ifying it.

Whether we’re improving these stories or not is anyone’s guess, but it’s at least a hell of a good time.

However, since we’re still rocking and rolling along with Snake Plissken Month, I’ve done a little switch on my end. Instead of Predator, we’re dropping Snake Plissken in.

Or hang gliding him in. Or one-man submersible-ing him in.

You get the picture.

Better with Predator: Fifty Shades of Predator

50ShadesofPredatorWe’re back for another Predator mash-up! This is the series where I take a famous book or movie and I twist the tale by adding Predator. At the same time, my writing buddy, Angela Wallace, chooses a famous tale and mashes it up by adding My Little Pony.

Did we make them better or worse? I don’t know, but they’re definitely funnier. And on my scoreboard that means we won. I’ll include a link to Angela’s story at the end of this post, so you don’t have to hop back and forth between the two sites.

Okay, let’s get on with it! Here’s Fifty Shades of Predator!

Better with Predator: Twilight

Today, we’re embarking on a new blog series. A while back, I was involved in a debate on whether everything can be improved with Predator. That’s right, Predator. He’s scary-cool. He’s from space. He has a cloaking device. He shoots lasers. He hunts Arnold Schwarzenegger. Is there anything Predator can’t do? Well, besides killing ArnoldContinue reading “Better with Predator: Twilight”
