Cancer isn't evil in and of itself. It doesn't gave any intent beyond replicating itself. Aliens are much the same.

It doesn't really matter if the intended to kill Ripley. She was still able to bargain with it. 'Let me leave and I don't torch your eggs.'  I would argue that Predators are more evil since they take pleasure in killing others.

As to your movie idea- how much have you actually written?

It seems that the big chap was taking his time to kill Lambert even though she wasn't a threat to him, unlike Parker. The directing and editing of the scene show that he seems to have full conscience of what he does, and he's actually enjoy toying with her. But maybe he was an isolated case.

Character will have "code names". Just like "Scar", "Wolf". Just to let you know of my Yautja protagonist, his name is "Razor Jaw".

I'd just go for "Razor." Or "Skean" (which I just learned is a knife, but it sounded cool to me) - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sgian-dubh

I did play with just "Razor". But my character has sort of hybrid mandibles where a set/row of teeth come from the bottom. Just making him look unique to be not just another look-a-like.

How do you determine 'enjoyment' from the sound of Lambert screaming over the intercom?

For me it's more the tail slowly going between her legs that makes me think this way. It's not necessary to do that in order to kill her, we can see he's taking his time. Some of the sexual ambiguity of the movie is well portrayed in that scene IMO.

Or it's like a predator slowly moving into an attack position before striking.

The Alien seems to often probe out with its' tail, it could also be more akin to a shark taking a bite out of something it's curious about. It certainly didn't seem to eat Lambert.

Nice script, man. Just a movie about Alien and Predators are a good idea, as there are no human interference. I agree with Hicks that this movie should be a bit short.

If there is enough of a story to follow, I don't see a valid reason why it has to be "short". The way I have planned out the story, there is more than enough substance for a 2 hour feature.

Like I said; This is just a small event that brings the two species together. A story that is set in the AVP universe. But I feel there is enough to make it feel unique and not just a typical "vs" movie with no story behind it.

Yes the concept of a movie with only the Aliens and the Predators has been mentioned many times in the past. But has anyone really come up with a storyline to make the concept work? Well I strongly feel that I have.

There's short stories with just Aliens and Predators in the comics.

Emphasis on short.

I'm still going over glossing the original story. Adding little changes to make things seem more plausible and not just "convenient" to push the story. Soon as I get my format done, I will be looking to post it wherever fans will see it most.


As for it being a short story and not enough for a movie, well there are movies where there is no dialogue and you watch the struggles play out through the physical acting. But in the way I write out my stories, it's hard to judge the pacing of the story. So I'm actively looking for a partner to help me script the concept. So there's bigger plans in the works.
