My favorite line was "Nice outfit, isn't Halloween in October?" When the whole film is set right after AVP which took place on October 10th, 2004. The incompetence of this movie is mind blowing. :laugh:

Be honest. Did you spot that yourself or did Decker Shado's YouTube review raise this hilarious goof.

Either way best AVP-R review on YouTube well worth a watch.

"The government doesn't lie to people" or" People are dying, we need guns"

I think Colin said here that those lines were suppose to be a joke, it was suppose to make people laugh. Having funny lines is one thing, cringe and stupid is another. Those might have been added by the directors.

The character who said the "government" line was the worst actor in the movie period. Irritating and unnecessary.

I got to admit though the "people are dying, we need guns" line, I don't see the controversy. The character could've said "Enough people have died already, we need guns to defend ourselves" and it would have the same logical meaning.

I singled out that line waaaay back in the day when IMDB still had message boards.

Well ironically the line from AVP didn't make sense either in its clumsy attempt marry up civilization history with Aztec mythology, by saying the Aztec' used the metric system- which they didn't (as highlighted by LittleJimmy)  :laugh:



So either way they didn't have Halloween in October.

There's just so much wrong with that review. Predators trick humans into believing that they are their gods in order to use them to breed aliens and he calls them big teddy bears. Just no.

Agreed when I read Earth War as a kid, my imagination went wild. I wondered what it would be like to have Xenos everywhere

Apples and oranges.  Anderson couldn't have Aliens taking over the world like the comics did because he was making something that was supposed to be a prequel to Alien.  And it was too expensive.

The same, though for me it was the novel. That whole portion where the war is going down the tubes and they're trying to break into that one guys office before he offs himself was incredibly tense. To think of xenomorphs swarming over the earth and taking everyone was beyond anything I'd ever experienced in the series at that point.

While I know we get the aftermath in Aliens, it'd be cool to see a colony world actually fall.
