Alien is a B-movie shot as an A-movie.
How is Alien not sophisticated?
It is but the design of the xenomorph creature is pure art, i don't think the movie in a whole is on that level.
It does everything perfectly, it sets up mood and tension like no other film like it.
Pretty good yes, all i was actually saying is that Alien is by no means any higher form of art compared to predator. They have a very different tone and work on completely different level.
quote by SIL: What have Predator fans got to complain about?
Allot, a very bad film for one thing. Plus: a homeworld that looks like Star wars, stripping the predator from it's tribalism, bad ship design etc...etc
Add to that your typical Pred fan isn't looking for a good movie, just action.
Maybe the 12 year old videogame geeks, not older fans of the original movie.
