1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    The first movie totally freaked me out as a kid. I liked Aliens, but never saw any of the others. I think this one sounds pretty interesting.

    Alien was brilliant, Aliens was eh...okay but don't mistake it for horror, just a big budget action sequel. Alien 3 to me seemed more true to the original and was the last Alien film I "count" as part of that franchise.

    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).
