Has Alien vs. Predator (2004) aged all that well? (Read 28,178 times)



Quote from: Corporal Hicks on Oct 17, 2022, 10:50:19 AMI can relate to this. I worked at the cinema when the film came out. I was so hyped for it coming up to release and everyone knew it. All of my buddies who worked there and I went to see it on release. I just apologized as we came out.
That's mortifying, jesus!


I don't think any fan is going to say they were completely satisfied or it's the film they wanted.

The Cruentus

It certainly better than it sequel and some have liked it better than the prequels, at least the first prequel. It doesn't help that Scott made the same mistakes that both AVPS did, screwing with the lore and the lifecycle.

AVP=fast alien lifecycle.
Alien covenent - Ultra fast lifecycle.
AVPR - added a new reproduction method that would render previous one obsolete.
Prometheus/Alien Covenent added a biological weapon that would render Alien one obsolete. Also huggers can implant instantly without need of rendering someone comatose, thus making previous iterations obsolete.


No! Prefer unrated.


Not a fan of this film at all, or usually this channel, but I find this absolutely fascinating.


Why does it take 5 f**king minutes to get to the point Jesus Christ I hate people trying to game the revenue system.

You gotta get those intros in! What's the verdict, was it better? I'm still not able to really watch his videos - after the whole thing here with Xenopedia.


It's just different. Some marginally better framing that shows more details that are nice but not crucial in some shots.


Oh god I don't need flashbacks to that absolutely pointless drama lol


Gave me a major itch to rewatch the movie

City Hunter Yautja

I must say AVP feels more Gigeresque than AVPR, it does a fair job of adding the terror of the facehugger and chestburster back into the Xenoverse.

I must say I disagree.


And yet the full quote is pretty fine. It's a low bar to clear.


cameron is on record saying he thinks avp is the 3rd best movie in the alien franchise.

i wonder if he feels the same today.

He also said T Genisys was 'the real T3' so I wouldnt put too much stock into that.

He has also praised Alien 3 in the past but will likely always have a biased hate towards it for what it did to his characters.
