    AvP was on tv last night and i watched it, and i had forgotten what a flaming pile of shit it was. i remember being so pumped up for it when i was in highschool.. what a letdown.

    here's hoping this is more alien/aliens than the absolute trash AvP became. hell, at least predator 2 had danny glover..

    i read an alternate script for it that was set in the jungle, i wish i could remember more of it but it was frickin awesome. humans had way less of a role and it was more of, you know, aliens versus predator.

    not to mention the predators kicked way more ass in the alternate version; one thing that really rubbed me the wrong way about avp was that these superior killing machines and intergalactic badasses got killed in 1:1 battles with aliens that were supposed to have strength in numbers. yeah, geeking out a little, but still... team predator over here. fuckin' aliens..

    ..but yeah, i've blocked all memory of avp2 from my brain.

    They are flatly denying that this is a true Alien/Aliens prequel, but there is a lot of speculation this might be misdirection. It wouldn't shock me if a proper xenomorph never makes an appearance, but we could be in for a big surprise.

    I doubt it will be as good as Alien Resurrection but it looks promising.

    I saw one movie where a woman used an Alien's head as a shield. That made me LOL.

    Javyn, I think you are confusing the movies. Alien Resurrection is the last true film in the franchise (it had Sigourney Weaver and Ron Perlman).

    Yeah I saw it, and it was total garbage. Ryder as a bot and Ripley as a clone? Come on man...

    If you're gonna resurrect anyone from the franchise you can only get away with bringing back Bishop, period. And even then that's a stretch. I hope Henrickson doesn't make an appearance in this one.

    How can you claim AR as garbage then go around and praise AVP for bringing back Lance Henrickson? :confused:

    Alien was good, Alien 3 was good, Aliens - pretty good. All the rest of the films sucked IMO.

    Alien is a classic and in some ways one of the more idiosyncratic films made. Aliens is relatively prosaic action scifi movie. Alien 3, is David Fincher's worst film, easily. Alien Resurrection is awful. Also terrible, any movie featuring a Predator. Yes, all of them.

    I liked Predator. I loved Predator 2.

    I am completely batshit about Alien, Aliens, and Alien 3.

    I know Alien 3 gets a bad rap, but I thought it was a great film, and almost as strong as the first.

    Aliens....eh, for an action movie it was good but it doesn't seem to fit the franchise. Still has it's charm though so I don't bash it.
