AVPR kicked arse, though lighting made it hard to see some detail and fight scenes , it still kicked arse lol avp took to long to get into the action but as good as it was the strouse brothers didnt explain to well and didnt continue the film properly at the end of avp there were at least 20 - 30 predators but 2 on the first but idc i love both films

I think they are both equal in their strengths/weaknesses.  However, I rate AVP just a little bit higher because it was more imaginative.

and not so grounded as in AVP. Yeah I would agree on the last part.

There is a place for gritty-style horror.  But AVPR wasn't that realistic.

Equally good. I liked bits of the first as well as the second.

I never thought I'd say this, but I'm more likely to watch AvP1 again than AvP:R  :-X

I agree that they both have their strengths and weaknesses, but I think AvP-R is just that touch better due to its faithfulness to the creatures and it's tone...but at the same time, it's all pretty derivative stuff, whereas AvP1 had a grander scope and a bit more imagination.

Both movies are mis-fires though.

AVP had many big problems and little ones

AVPR is beeter than AVP1 because more blood of course and more action. And I like the Final Fight between the Predalien and the Predator.

a little O-T, but I recently introduced the gf to Aliens and Alien 3 Assembly Cut. Watching them back to back made me pine for the good old days when fox sort of cared about these movies.

Anyway I was totally surprised by her reaction to them...she thought the acting in Aliens was wooden (which it is in places, I hadn't noticed before) and that it was a bit silly. Still enjoyed it though. BUT she totally digged Alien 3 AC and thought it was miles better....and that's why I love her.  ;D

anyway..my point is, maybe FOX should re-release Alien 3 AC theatrically? I think audiences would really warm to it with a few minor touch ups. Then they could essentially re-start the Alien series, and do the same with the Predator. AvP3 is seeming less and less viable to me now. The first two movies have sucked the fun out of the concept, and now feeling winded, I don't know why I wanted to see an AvP movie in the first place.  :-[

youve got to give AvP1 something though...at least it TRIED. It didnt feel anywhere near as cheap as Requiem did.

both movies were so on par with eachother that they might as well release them together as one movie.
