It's another 2000km from there to the pole.
Quote from: FatBrando on Aug 30, 2014, 03:29:07 PMActing was better?...no. No it wasn't. AVPR has some of the worst acting I've ever seen. Corny, over the top soap opera garbage. With the lead doing some bizarre action Tom Cruise impression...ugh, makes me want to puke. None of the characters were like-able or relatable in any way. The first film had actual actors. No they weren't any good in it either but there is only so much you can do with a bad director, a terrible script and lousy editing. This is a series that contains great actors! Like Sigorney Weaver, Lance Henrikson, Ian Holm, John Hurt, Yaphett Koto, and Charles Dance! Classically trained! Directors like Ridley Scott, James Cameron, David Fincher! Jean-Pierre Juenet! Granted Resurrection sucked but he's still a good director. The reason the franchises are suffering is because of miss-management from the studios and producers like John Davis. They don't put the money towards a quality product. They dont hire good actors, good directors, writers, etc. They don't respect the universe. They see it as rubber monsters fighting in outer space. They look at it with all the reverence of an old Godzilla move.

Quote from: Russ on Dec 09, 2014, 02:10:20 PMOf course, I could be completely wrong, but I always got the feeling that Anderson was slightly apologetic in the commentary and almost... wistful.

Quote from: Corporal Hicks on Dec 09, 2014, 10:09:08 AMSo I re-watched AvP over the weekend with the Mrs. First time I've watched it for sometime and I watched some of the special features too.I don't think it's a horrific film like Requiem is, but it's still a disappointing one.
Quote from: happypred on Dec 10, 2014, 04:06:19 AMOn top of that the film handicaps the novice predators with stolen shoulder cannons and random items of dissolving gear. Scar's shuriken, spear, and dagger are acid-proof but Celtic's dollar store wristblades dissolve almost instantly. Why? Do Blooded predators like to prank youths, is this the predator equivalent of hazing? Is the purpose of the scene simply to show off the potency of xenomorph acid? I dunno...
Quote from: RakaiThwei on Dec 10, 2014, 04:21:36 AMI usually go by SiL's explanation.. and it doesn't seem out of the question as Predators enjoy a good challenge. So quoting SiL: "They were given that particular equipment to make it more challenging."And it makes sense if you look at the (old) EU.. Novice Hunters are usually given bottom of the barrel equipment and have to work through the ranks to get better gear.
