Re: Indian/Yautja names...

Okay I was in Social Studies today during second period studying Indians trying to stay awake behind my propped up social studies book and suddenly the teacher calls on my friend and asks who is this indian and I here him say SHONTAUCK (the Yautja leader during Rabetande's time) and I wake up and blurt out "HOLY SH uh I mean WOAH!" and so now its got me wondering did the makers of PREDATOR, PREDATOR 2 and the great PREDATOR books look at exotic indian names for Yautja names?????????????????????

Re: Indian/Yautja names...

thats a good questions Phlub. I'd also like to know that.
If they didn't do they have there own little system for making names. Like George Lucas has for Star Wars.

Phlub, I think there's influence there - but I don't think the names are strictly derived from native American names...

Arrow hmmm

Hmmm, don't think I'm convinced about that. I don't think, in my opinion, that Jim & John Thomas gave the Predator's names in the movies - don't think they'd thought that far ahead (unlike the AvP authors)

Yeah...

Yeah the site could have been lying like many other sites on the internet do. But hey Jim and John are still brilliant men to right out such a great storyline. It was such a good movie because one thing lead to another, most of the events connected to other events and in the end it all made sense. PREDATOR 2 tried to make a better installation but failed because the orginal PREDATOR was just perfect in all elements of the movie.
