I Robot-PG-13, The Bourne Supremacy-PG-13, Spiderman-2-PG-13, The Bourne Identity-PG-13, Minority Report-PG-13, The Italian Job-PG-13, The Scorpion King - PG-13, LORD OF THE RINGS-PG-13!!! There was a time when a piece of work was judged by it's cinamatographic qualities and NOT by the amount of fake blood gushing from a gaping wound in someone's chest. Gone are the days when Alfred Hitchcock could hold the rapt attention of thousands of people and simultaneously make them all shiver and jump at the mere sound of a shower curtain being pulled back or a shadow entering through a creaking door. Or are they? I was in the theater watching M. Night Shyamalan's "Signs" (PG-13) when the entire room scream at seeing an alien's fingers come out from under a door and try to grab Mel Gibson. People screamed and jumped in their seats. AND THEY HADN'T EVEN SEEN THE ALIEN YET!!! It truly amazes me that there are so many of you alleged AVP fans spouting negative commentary over the possible lack of violence, and bloodshed, and foul language that may or may not be present in AVP. What about the time when kids COULD go to the movies to enjoy a good monster flik? What about the folks (and there are millions of us out there) that love Sci-Fi movies but don't want to see all of that gore because they would like to take their kids and let them see two of the greatest movie monsters of all time duke it out on the big screen? I love Aliens and Predator, not because of violence or gore, but because it's darn good Sci-Fi!! The first two Aliens movies didn't even have that much gore in them they were rated R because of the language. The truth is that the studies are true. Violence, gore in movies and television, and graphic video games have so desensitized people that the idea a movie would not be gratuituously violent and gorey is something repulsive. You want graphic violence and gore? Turn on CNN for crying out loud! Take a look at what is happening around the world! With all of the violence and suffering going on in the world you people want to go "relax" by seeing more of it? Have you all lost your minds? Folks, it's called escapist entertainment because it's supposed to take you away from reality for a couple of hours! True AVP fans (myself included) have been waiting for years for what was said would never happen. We've read the comics, the novels, etc. And we've waited. So, why do you want to bash Paul Anderson? If someone handed one of you a few million dollars to make this film but they told you it had to get a PG-13 rating, every last one of you would quit griping, take the money, and do the best job you possibly could to make it happen!! I know I would! So, just get some popcorn, sit back, and enjoy the film. Despite all the negative comments YOU KNOW YOU'LL BE IN AUDIENCE WATCHING IT ANYWAY!!! HHHHHHHHIIIIIIIIIISSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!
