Three more years until AVPR turns 10. I don't think the hype of Prometheus, Predators and AVP '010 will reach the hype that AVP and AVPR had on this site did.

I wouldn't know myself but really? Prometheus didn't reach those levels of hype?

I can tell you a lot of people won't be celebrating that anniversary but then again, I doubt that there will be an anniversary for that since we're getting the anniversary for AvP already. And I'm fine with that.

I'll tell you what might be in store for the anniversary of AvP-R's tenth.. A mass DVD/Blu-ray burning.  ::)

It far exceeded them.

While I didn't enjoy AVP. I loved AVPR. I thought it was a much better movie. We actually see aliens attack civilization. The predalien I thought was great. We got wolf! The score was fantastic. The story I found more interesting. The town kinda (I mean kinda) had a twin peaks vibe to it. I thought the acting was better and the characters more interesting. It's by NO means a great movie but a movie I thought was fun and superior to the first.

We saw them attack a small Colorado town and put their babies in pregnant women. It got so bad that the military nuked Gunnison.

    Well , the fact that Aliens were attacking civilization didn't attract me so much . I expected to be something more like a ton of Aliens running down the street with people screaming , barricading themselves in their houses and shit like that ...

    When things like this happen , most of the time they nuke cities .

When I heard Paul W S Anderson was directing an AVP movie back in early 2003 I was expecting his movie would be a cross between his PG-13 MORTAL KOMBAT and alien rip off Event Horizon.

When the film came out- that's exactly what I got.

A generous 3/5

Predator Queen

I will celebrate,  by writing a Scar x Lex fan fiction worthy of an early 2000s quizzila submission.

Oh, so THAT'S what was happening.  I figured there must've been something going on but all I got was bad dialogue and some vaguely dark shapes on the screen.

I watched it opening night, went in with high expectations and left feeling..meh. I did not hate it, i got some enjoyment out of it. I would say i'm very indifferent about it. It's obvious that Anderson wanted to make an "Alien" movie, he said so in all the interviews, it seems that somewhere down the line he got roped into adding Predators.
I love both creatures but it's obvious that the aliens were favored. I liked AVPR a lot more, still not an award winner but better in my opinion. Though one could argue that the Predator is favored more in that one. I think that's the problem with versus films in general. Two great characters that can never be balanced out in a way that will make fans on both sides happy. Freddy vs Jason..same issue.

To the guy who "loved" AVPR:

It will be a cold day in hell before I ever acknowledge another movie that has a xenomorph inside a high school.
