Nah, even David was too much for me. The Alien films aren't about everyone being miserable and then dying/losing any more than Predator movies are. Final girl getting an isolation kill is exactly the kind of empty, "f**k you" ending I'd dread.

I can almost guarantee that will be Fede Alvarez's contribution to Alien. Just ugh.

And I'm just here loving that. But it's not so much about the Alien winning, so much as Alien just seems on the whole a more bleaker and "realistic" world (Aliens aside, and I suppose Resurrection's ending). But that's a discussion for another thread, I think, if someone wants to start that to continue.

I am all for that idea when it is given a counterbalance. Alien³ for example repeatedly puts Ripley through the meat grinder. But they win in the end, they never give up and just let the monster win. Because it champions hope and redemption even in the dreadful world we live in.

That story really resonates with me, so does Naru's and Prey's story. I do not want empty misery porn which I fear Fede Alvarez will create.

 Also, I'll debunk another final fight nitpick, the arm loss, y'all love saying Feral is just dumb, or forgot how his shield worked and accidentally cut his arm off, that's not what happened.
 Naru made him pull up his shield and then directed it at his arm as it was closing, cutting it off.

How is a girl overpowering a pred? That's the issue. She overpowers him several times in this fight. Even win an injured arm I don't think she is that strong and the pred that dumb not to compensate.
She never once overpowers him, she either uses his own force/weight against him or gets the drop on him.

Didn't like Predator design.
As an American native film kinda Disney cute. Scenery was beautiful that was the star. Also .. the cgi with Predator red glow thing, cheap as chips cgi.

Least favourite Predator related film.

Top three?
Arnie
AVP
Predator 2
Then
Predators ( underrated)
AVP requiem ( first 20 minutes good)
The Predator ( couple of good scenes)
The Prey ( again stunning scenery) let down with terrible Predator design skinny dude in costume.. horrendous face mask design.
