Popo: Another fine selection, Partijama!
Partijama: Thank you, Razz.
Popo: So much fun, unless you happened to be one of the miserable souls in the film. Lazlo-
Lazlo: (Snarling) Lord Lazlo, if you please…bard!
Popo: I do please, Lazzie ol’ buddy ol’ pal, and so do the Bombastykan bards when it comes to the most splendid art of yarn-spinning. Another century or two and they might even be halfway to my level…hahahahaa!
Lazlo: A better reason to freeze time I have never encountered.
Popo (cackling): Ah, this guy…so funny…
Partijama: I liked how this one started with the space-ship arcing past Bombastyk, and the small shuttle detaching then streaking through the atmosphere.
Popo: Yessir, this tale heated up real fast.
Lazlo: The main ship was about a tenth of your size, would you say, Partijama?
Partijama: That depends.
Lazlo: Oh? On what?
Partijama: My size at the time of measurement. I can be a hundred times the size of that ship, or just one tenth of it.
Popo: Goodness! Partijama, I knew you could change but you never told me you were that versatile.
Partijama: (Chuckle) That’s because I knew you’d try to exploit it for mischief, Razz.
Popo (sheepish grin as Lazlo laughs): Busted…Hey, how about that elite Bombastykan combat unit led by the big man with the phenomenal arms, huh?
Lazlo: Hmph, his arms were decent.
Popo: Each one weighed more than you, I expect, Lazlo. I liked the balance of his team too. The Bombastykans refer to that sort as “bad-boys.” It has a nice ring to it. I might use it in my next tale.
Lazlo: I’d prefer you use “good-bye” in your next story.
Popo: (Reflects) I like it!
Partijama: I enjoyed that part when they were playing music on their way to the jungle, and interacting with each other. Then we got a glimpse into their personalities. Already you could tell they were going to be an entertaining bunch.
Popo: Righto; and they really were.
Lazlo: They’d have been in a less chirpy mood if they’d known what was waiting for them. The Bombastykans really do enjoy grisly tales, don’t they? I think I’m going to enjoy this little sojourn.
Popo: And now you see why I like to come over here. When they came across those unfortunate souls who’d tangled with the Predator (unknown to them at the time), and Billy’s assessment of the combat scenario baffled them all, you just knew they were in for it.
Partijama: And then we got to see them in action not long after that grisly scene.
Lazlo: Indeed. It was their announcement that they were not to be taken lightly.
Popo: Oh yes, those scenes were awesome! And the dialogue too, then and…well, throughout the whole movie, really was superb.
Partijama: I liked when Billy said (switches to Billy voice) – “There’s something out there waiting for us. And it ain’t no man.” (Pause) “We all gon’ die.”
Popo: (Standing ovation) Oh, splendid, Partijama!
Partijama: Thank you, gentle-folk.
Lazlo: Gentle-Lord in my case; gentle-fool in his.
Popo: Yesss…hey, what-
Lazlo: I like the way Billy laughs – (Billy voice) “Hyaw hyaw hyaw hyaw-”
Popo: Wonderful, Lazlo. Creepy, but wonderful; am I making sense?
Lazlo: Much more than you usually do.
Popo: Thank…hold on, was that a compliment?
Partijama: Do you have any favourite scenes, Razz?
Popo: Oh, so many, that I have none…if that makes sense, hehehee.
Popo: I love that part when Mac sees the villain for the first time, and its eyes glow at him, and then it runs off, and he shouts and opens fire.
Partijama: Great scene.
Lazlo: That weapon was fantastic; perfect for treating Malipote infestations.
Popo: For a while I thought he would treat the whole forest. And when his buddies rushed up beside him and began to unload their weapons too, woohoo, I felt a shiver.
Partijama: I did adjust the temperature right then, Razz.
Popo: Ah, you always know how to make a movie better, buddy.
Partijama: I do my best.
Popo: I mentioned how awesome the lines were; like when the big cowboy fella said, “I ain’t got time ter bleed.” A-a-and when the Predator said, “Anytime.”
Partijama: Or when Dutch said, (Dutch voice), “If it bleeds, we can kill it.”
Lazlo: I liked when Mac was saying that he was going to have him some fun tonight…hehehe. That was fun.
Partijama: Another great scene.
Popo: Hey, did anyone else think Anna said “…straw-face of men” instead of “…trophies of men” in that scene when she was telling the team about-
Popo (snickers): Oohhh. What about when Dutch roared his challenge to the hunter?
All together: ROOOAAARRRR!! Hahahaha…
Popo: So much action, so much awesomeness.
Partijama: And the scenes we mentioned were just a few of the multitude packed into this wonderful movie.
Lazlo: It was a great tale, notwithstanding the obvious shortcomings.
Popo: Agreed. My major gripe was that the movie ended.
Partijama: (Giggles) What shortcomings are you referring to, Lord Lazlo?
Lazlo: Well, for one, the Predator was obviously afflicted with some sort of visual ailment. Quite frankly I’m surprised it didn’t trip over a root, or miss a vine, or slip from a branch and crash into the underbrush. At the very least the fiend should’ve twisted an ankle. Its eyesight was atrocious.
Partijama: (Laughing) Lord Lazlo, in the context of the movie, the Predator actually had the best vision.
Popo: What about the face the eyesight was coming from? That’s probably what did the poor guy’s eyes in, in the first place.
Partijama: You know, the Bombastykans have a saying – “a face only a mother could love.”
Lazlo: Surely even a mother would falter at that hurdle.
Lazlo: It looked like a cross between a Bombastykan and…what was that vile creature again; Partijama, the one from the documentary?
Partijama: Oh. (Hologram) It’s called a lobster.
Lazlo: Yes, and according to the narrator they like fish and meat scraps. And that’s how I would’ve trapped the fiend. (Villain face) I would’ve laid out bits of meat and lured the wretch to its eternal demise. (Victory pose) YEESSS!!
Popo: Um, but where would you get the meat?
Lazlo: The pig, of course. Have you forgotten the pig?
Popo: Oh yeah, the pig.
Partijama: I also overlooked that. That was very poor timing on the pig’s account.
Popo: Hey, guys, I just gotta do it; you know you want to, (wiggles brows) what do you say, eh – Partijama, Lazlo?
Lazlo: Hmph, (Lord face) silliness. (Snooty face softening) Well, if we must…only to oblige you, of course.
Popo: Of course.
All together: GET TO DA CHOPPAAAA!!
