That was pretty sweet. I think the argument that everything is more legit, better, smarter, more interesting with a UK accent really bears out here, btw.

That was great! They should do RoboCop next, then I'd have both my favourite movies from 1987 in rap form! Although, seeing as this apparently took them nine months to create, I'm not holding my breath.

Wow. Just...wow.

It was okay. At least the rap part. The editing was fabulous though! But Ra, R.A. (artist on second verse) and Ice-T's rapping about similar stuff puts these cats flow (or lack of) to shame. But the editing, the editing is superb.

Heh. For a while I was absolutely convinced that you could find any non-archaic, non-oddball word in a rap song. It was a better claim when there were fewer rappers around, but still, if there's a word you've personally used in conversation, I was sure you could find it in a rap song. But now there's so many rappers that it's more of an inevitability-monkey-Shakespeare argument than an example of how cool rap is.

This is phenomenal, really. But it's only the second-best rap song based off highlights from a b-movie. Number one: weng weng.

Nicely done. I particularly liked the mix-in of "If it bleeds, we can kill it."

That was great. You have no idea how much that has cheered me up after a crap day at work.

I'm thankful for Predator, only because it inspired Soldat, one of the best games ever.

Nice. Reminds me of Back To The Future by the Futuristic Sex Robotz.

Incredible.

9 months? This video took longer to make than the actual movie.
