The Beatles once sang, “You may see the meaning of within. It is being, it is being.” In True Detective, Colin Farrell notes, “My strong suspicion is we get the world we deserve.”

In life, the one thing we search for is meaning, a purpose, what links us all together. I have found that unknown territory. I have looked into the abyss. And the abyss looked back at me, in the form of Ghost Hunters Season 5 Episode 15, “Bat out of Hell.”

Straight Outta Compton is really good, you guys. But no biopic is 100% accurate, especially when it’s produced by two of the guys in the story. I’m not saying Ice Cube and Dr. Dre tried to whitewash their past, but there are some interesting omissions in this NWA tale.

You may want to see the movie before perusing this article. It has “anti-spoilers,” if you will.

“Harold took a walk in the moonlight. There wasn’t a moon and therefore he drew one. He drew a straight path to walk on. Harold walked with his big purple crayon. However, he didn’t seem to be getting anywhere after a while.”

I read along with my mother in abject fascination as Harold and the Purple Crayon planted the seeds of fantasy in my tiny brain. I wished, like Harold, to be the wielder of some divine crayon that could shape my destiny through slightly tempered scribbles.

Legendary director Ingmar Bergman once said of cinema, “No art passes our conscience in the way film does, and goes directly to our feelings, deep down into the dark rooms of our souls.”  In the film Predator 2, Danny Glover’s character Mike Harrigan said, “Okay, pussy face, it’s your move.”

And that is Predator 2 in a nutshell: harsh, intense, blunt, and above all, aggressive.  Predator 2 is a nasty piece of work, and I mean that in the best way possible. Full of awesome action, brutal violence, and more f-bombs than you can shake a smart disc at, Predator 2 has always been a personal favorite of mine, and I’ve long felt that it has been unjustly maligned ever since its release back in 1990.
