I still can't believe the balls on Anderson saying he had made the predator look better then ever before..  He lowered the bar with 14 years of make up evolution at his finger tips.  It was one of the more disappointing aspects of the film was the lack of Stan Winston quality or involvement .  This movie would have been better as a comic book I think or a. Video game.  It feels like a straight to DVD or made for the syfy channel low quality anaconda 4. Kind of vibe.  That being said if I remove the part of me that cares about aliens or predators and am bored I can handle it as a pop corn flick if it's on TV and nothing else  is on.  I highly doubt I will ever watch it on purpose again in my life  on DVD or I tunes or something. It's not worth the time.

I just came across this thread and now I've made plans to rewatch it Friday with my friendzone. It's things like avp and star wars that we share that stops me from putting a move on her cuz its cool to have a chick in my life to watch sci fi with and I don't wanna risk losing the friendship.

I finally plucked up the courage to re-watch AVP:R the other night.



It was shit.

Did you make it through it in one sitting?

Only because I was texting a mate rather than actually paying attention.

Haha. Last time I tried to watch it I had to stop 3 times.

Ah, I look back on AVP with fond memories. Good times, practically blew me away when I saw it it in theaters, came out when I was 15. Didn't post on any internet forums back then, so everything was a surprise. I distinctly remember being all "Oh my god! No way!" when the Queen first showed up. I had a good time seeing in theaters and the dozen or so times I watched again on DVD.

I had to watch AVP and AVP:R this past year becuase my son is turning into quite the alien and predator fan. He had many questions about many of the same things we do, except he loved both, which appears to be the minority opinion here. I can see some glimpses of some good ideas in AVP, but they quickly get buried under Anderson's "style".

Anderson's style is really weird and every film he makes feels very rushed. if he slowed down his movies a bit and fleshed out some of the characters instead of killing half in a single sequence which he has become famous for, then he might have something good. AVP could have been a memorable film had it been his story and a respectable director.

Event Horizon works because basically none of those things are true.

Always liked the first AVP, I was hyped for it, went to see it in theaters with friends, we all had a good time. For me it continued the vibe and tradition of the first three alien movies - isolation, corridors, and everything ending with aliens taking the top and leftovers of a group trying to get out to survive. I was also a huge fan of the first AVP comic book and we know the AVP movie drew a lot from that one.

Also way before RE and his films after that. Also to his defense, Event Horizon was his own film really and not a familiar film adaption.
