Alice and I watched Predator recently. I hadn't seen it in twenty years or so. The alien's point of view was an impressive special effect at the time, as I recall, but it doesn't look so hot now.
This scene was strangely beautiful, though, when the alien's looking at a dead scorpion in its hand.
For a brilliant analysis of Predator's homoerotic subtext, read this review by Jonny Lieberman. He also could have mentioned that the commando team listens to Little Richard on their way into the jungle.
