Doesnt the predator see mamals that radiate heat so Arnie was able to cool off his body by covering himself with mud.
So it would mean predator cant see things like insects and presuming alien is a cold blooded creature, predator should not be able to see alien.

am i wrong?

And how do you figure that?

Cold blooded doesn't mean literally "cold blooded". It means this type of creature is exothermic so it acquires it's heat from the environment. It still has warmish blood.

Mammals are endothermic and generate their heat within their bodies.

I watched the first Predator movie and was disappointed. It didn't even approach the genius of the Alien series. And Arnie ain't Sigorney Weaver ;)

predator has multiple vision modes so it can see almost anything. it all depends on how good the camouflage is.

I think/hope you are correct, I walk around covered in mud all the time and have never been discovered by a Predator.

Exothermic yes, but its muscles will still generate heat when contracting. Vince

But if predator was invisible, I would have thought the alien couldn't see the predator.

The predator uses a very clever cloaking technique to appear invisible, although he is not actually 100% invisible. With my trained eye I can still spot him.

hehe I think its great this movie is coming out..

when I was a kid and had seen both different series (Alien and Pred) I did at one point wonder what would happen if you threw them both in a pit together..

Even though its mindless violence, its still mindless violence,

And thats what makes it great ! :D

ps. although it would suck if they worked out their differences and mated.

Are you referring to Christpher Walken?, The guy is a LEGEND.

His name was Lance Herikson. He played the android in the second Alien movie and had a TV series where he was a psychic...can't remember what it was called though.

Nah, they couldn't mate. Bearing in mind that the Alien is female, and then bearing in mind her physical attributes, poor old Predator wouldn't even survive the foreplay.

Alien would be able to smell Predator; probably very well. Vince

Since they have have Freddy v Jason, and now they have Predator v Aliens, I wonder when Smurf v Muppets will come out?
