    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.

    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.

    Well under 90 days & nothing but teasers!  Yes, I’ll purchase tickets but still, would like to see a TRAILER

    Fans and their sometimes delusional wishes... Dude you just got a teaser AND a tv spot  :laugh:  What do you want more ? The movie on a silver plate right now ? And after that, some will complain that movie studios don't take into consideration their requests lol guys just look at yourself sometimes please ! Sometimes you don't deserve to be listened.

    "The more things change, the more they stay the same".

    I admit it, I’m delusional :o Nice for comic con though, forgot it was coming up!

    I can't agree with that.

    Sure, Stallone might have done well, maybe a couple others, but Arnold pretty much gave one of his best performances in Predator.

    Yea, I may have exaggerated, I'd say any of the same caliber with acting skills/charisma. Sure, I'm happy he was chosen and his performance was superb for the act.

    But I can't agree when someone say it's an Arnie movie, for me it isn't.
  13. MudButt
    Arnold was exactly who they needed for a movie from that era. Predator is not some art film with deep themes. It's an 80's action film that had fun characters and great one-liners. Most action films from that era are the exact same. Of course the director would later make the first Die Hard which I just call a great film versus a great action movie.

    Stallone would have been good, and probably would have gave a better acting performance but I think Arnold was perfect in the role. The movie still entertains me to this day.
  14. huntin8-t0n
    The why no Arnold is my favourite question of all time. Even abput the release of Predators some of my friends were asking me that.

    I like his movies and respect his work, but tbh, Predator would have been the same quality if there was any other famous macho muscle man of the era played the main role. No offense, but Dutch wasn't that much of a deep character.
  15. BigDaddyJohn
    Easy to demonstrate cowardness in front of a computer, sheltered from physical consequences yes, unfortunately... Black seems keen on responding calmly or with some wit at least, i think it's better for the movie's sake.

    I've just gone through a read out of many comments on the net about the first teaser... God ohh god... The amount of stupid stuff is overwhelming !

    "Why no jungle ?"
    "Why no arnold ?"
    "Is this a kid movie ?"

    Is that some people main requests ? Then i've got a question for them... Why are you so dumb ?  Not seeing your requests fulfilled pushes you to resort to rude comments, even though your requests are sometimes dumb and deluded... Good lord help us all.
