    Great movie! Who's buying the DVD tuesday?

    Think I might have to go on a Alien/Predator marathon before then.

    Definately NOT picking it up. Bad movie maybe could have been salvaged with an R rating.

    The movie was incredibly lacking to me. It had a lot of cheese to it. The whole idea of the chick allying witht he Preditor kind of made me laugh...well at least the way they went about it.

    read the original novels.. a woman befriending a Predator was a big part of it.. it's too bad they basically trashed the concept with the movie

    The movie is rarely ever a good depiction of the book. And considering they had limitations by not having Ridley Scott or James Cameron to back them, it still had value.

    Special features didn't seem to have very much. Scrolled through the dark horse gallery, they just had comic covers, unless I missed something.

    Yeah, I'm wondering the same thing!
     
  18. The concept of the movie is a great idea, but i think the makers failed horribly. Movie was too short, story went to fast, no developement of characters, plot, anything. Granted it was badass to see aliens and Predators going at it. The movie had great potential, and it was pretty enjoyable, as i left the movie i kinda felt like it was lacking and missing something

    The books were good. I haven't seen the movie yet, but I'm prepared to be underwhelmed.

    It was more of an action movie than a horror movie, and I think it delivered well in the action aspect.

    Otherwise :hsd:

    I just think anything is better then nothing, and it could've been much worse. I'm sure Scott or Cameron never intended on creating another.

    The rumor I heard is Cameron has another Alien in development and he threatened to walk away if AVP was greenlighted because he hated it so much. This was on www.avpnews.com at least a year ago. I'm not sure if I have the URL right, it's not working for me.

    heh... love your avatar. :bigthumb:
    Back on topic though.
    I thought the movie was good for what it was. It was entertaining and a good time. :)
