I don’t know why I’m drawn to these 80’s extraterrestrial action movies when I’m left home alone for prolonged periods of time.

Insanely ridiculous credits sequence. Maybe this was a thing for a certain type of movie back in some day before my time, but to me now it’s cheesy as hell.

Also, so unfortunate about the smarmy one-liners injected for Arnold early on. “Stick around,” are you serious? Quite dissonant with his high-and-mighty attitude in scenes with Carl. Stick to the memorable quips that resonate with the action, e.g. “If it bleeds, we can kill it.”

I salute them for not killing the black guys first. Of course they do inhumanly slaughter a ton of brown Central Americans.

Music is quality as ever.
