    I like how the recent AVP trilogy handled the homeworlds: they're all nomadic, but there's still a "homeworld" left where each individual makes a pilgrimage to at least once in their life.  We didn't really find out much else about it, other than it exists.  The planet shown in AVP-R wasn't what I was expecting from a planet inhabited by Predators.  May have been all the fog covering up the flora.

    Would have preferred a shot cutting to space, we hear the distress beacon echoing, and Wolf's ship approaches Earth.

    The Predator planet scene serves absolutely no purpose at all. It shows Wolf too soon, the "Predator telemetry" is just a rehash which is covered when Wolf goes to the wreckage of the ship... It's just a worthless scene.

    Couldn't disagree more. AVP is all over the place with its pacing and the first 50 minutes is wasted. Aliens by contrast establishes its characters well, especially its supporting cast so they are not just mindless canon fodder barring a couple, and it builds up plenty of tension.

    AVP tries to replicate that and fails completely - a problem exaggerated by the fact far too much is condensed into the last 30 mins of the film.

    Nope, just my reaction when I see a film thats considered a classic getting trashed like its a Roger Corman flick.

    (And then to also act like AvP is anything but mediocre at best :()

    The pacing in AVP was good. While the characters may not be the best, I loved the buildup to the pyramid, the foreshadowing with the whale bones and water tower, the discovery of the tunnel, the ancient dead bodies. All of it gives pieces to the overall puzzle. You wanna talk bad pacing? Aliens is boooooring. It takes an hour and 15 minutes until the aliens show up and what do you get until then? A bunch of cartoon military grunts who can never shut the he'll up about how badass they are. We know everything that awaits them because it's just the first movie, just with more Aliens.

    Sad

    How can anyone say AVP has decent pacing? Nothing happens for the first 50 mins which would be fine if they actually bothered to build up the characters. Then 30 mins later the film is over! It's horribly disjointed.

    You're actually the first one i see on here that bring that up, and it's a very solid point. I couldn't agree more. Boring and not that interesting regarding characters. Cheer up people, Shane Black is coming ! This era of bland characters is over !  ;)

    This is getting better by the minute  ;D

    The pyramid is an interesting concept but I would argue it's not that well realized. It's barely utilized in the script except to divide the characters. You'll note it's never really utilized in the main concept of the film. The Alien versus the Predator in a moving pyramid... Ya know?

    Just imagine having the Celtic vs Grid fight broken up by the Pyramid shifting, and Celtic's arc became almost Ahab-esque where he's trying to find and kill Grid to avenge his fallen brother Gill.



    As to AVP-R, it has plenty of interesting ideas, but it again, doesn't make the most of any of them. People keep saying Wolf is a great Predator, but he's really not. His opposition is trash. It's one of the very few things the script actually did better than the final film, showing Wolf actually having to fight the aliens and taking injuries.

    Remember that scene in AVP:R where the alien is eating the body, and Wolf just sneaks up behind it and stabs it with his spear?

    This is how that was originally scripted:

    Poor writing in the script aside, the concept was actually better before it got finised down into "Wolf is a badass. Wolf is a badass. Wolf is a badass."

    You can't really have tension, excitement, etc... If the Predator just steam roles the aliens.



    By that same token I think this will likely be a weakness of The Predator. The Upgrade will doubtless steam roll the others and that really makes me sad. It's a tired Hollywood cliche.

    I never thought wolf was a total badass, just that he was really cool to watch because of his great physical language, the great sound effects used with him, and his design that i absolutely love. And very cool weapons too.

    Oh wow, never read any of the script, but this is the meagerest description I've seen in a looong time.

    What makes AVP stand out is the concept of the pyramid and Earth being visited by predators in the ancient past.  Both ideas are really interesting and well executed.

    AVPR and Predators also have some good ideas, but not as good and well executed as AVP, IMO.

    The first time the Alien and Predator clashed should have carried the weight of something like the fight between the T-800 and the T-1000 in Terminator 2.

    This. It should have had a strong buildup before they both went head to head.
    I saw Event Horizon long after I watched AVP and my immediate thought after was how the hell did he screw up the general tone for AVP? Granted the studio probably played a hand with certain decisions for that movie as well as AVPR... As annoyed as I was with the creature designs, the 13/14 year old me was still excited with everything. I think, story wise, AVP surpasses AVPR but Predators beats them both with ease.

    The only issues I have with it are the "trademark" excess style that Anderson puts into his movies. The gratuitous use of zooms, slow motion, etc... There's a couple bits of awful foley in the finale, and the comic relief black character brings the movie down in a couple of bits. Otherwise it's one of the better science fiction horror films made in the 90s. I'm glad the plans for a sequel were torpedoed.


    Speaking on that subject. Both absent from the script and the teaser/trailer we've seen... Horror. I really do wish this series wouldn't forget the great opportunities it has for horror, dread, and tension based suspense.

    AVP is dull. AVPR is just stupid.

    Event Horizon and Soldier are far better films from Anderson's filmography. At least in those instances when he started borrowing from elsewhere he was merely paying homage and still making something new.

    Just rewatched Event Horizon(now on Amazon Prime) for the first time in many years, and it's just as scary and effective as I remembered. Amazingly creepy atmosphere and imagery.

    I agree on Event Horizon and Soldier. To think the latter was pushed forward by the great Clint Eastwood is amazing, he reportedly said on the set "don't f**k it up kid" to Anderson  :laugh:

    Mortal Kombat is fine. It just needs the violence and a reduction of the stupid dialogue, replace it with quiet atmospheric scenes that build up the tension. No more Sonya screaming endlessly.

    AVP is, quite frankly, boring. I rank all three Predator films and the original Alien trilogy above it. AVP falls behind Prometheus. AVP, Resurrection, Covenant are all at the bottom of the shelf.



    You know what, I've been really critical of Predators in some of these threads, so let me just relay a little anecdote.  My brother and I saw it the opening week it was in theater. Sat down, saw that first scene, and the moment the title card hit my brother and I looked at eachother and said "Now that's how you open a f*ckin' movie!" I'm so glad they cut out the filler scenes from Predators and went for the far better falling to your death opening. Immediate tension, suspense, questions, mystery, and energy. The film is off and going.

    AVP literally never thrilled me. Never. Not once. My heart raised a beat slightly when the Alien and Predator were face to face. But I realized just how unearned the moment was. For one, the Predator in the shot is basically already dead, so the creatures aren't actually facing off. Grid is just staring at a glorified corpse, for two the Alien design is shit. for three, the film has no balls, and no characters worth a damn.

    The first time the Alien and Predator clashed should have carried the weight of something like the fight between the T-800 and the T-1000 in Terminator 2.

    Scar gets a lot of hate but we were all so hyped to see Preds on screen after 14 years when this came out
    I was very hyped! Watched it back to back the day it released.I left the theater just thinking wow this guy shit on my favorite franchises. I've loathed Paul Anderson since mortal kombat.

    AVP is still better than half of the entries in both series and mortal kombat was never going to be anything more than what he gave us.
