AVP has a lot of flaws, but it's a perfectly entertaining popcorn flick and at least Anderson knows how to shoot an action scene. The Strause brothers are two fanboys who just wanted to put in as many references to the Alien and Predator movies and stomach churning moments as possible, without caring about good acting, a decent story or even if we can see the damn movie. Also, Chet looks ridiculous. AVP has Lance Henriksen and a Queen.

Wow.  I watched AvP-R the first time since it hit Blu-Ray. 

What an absolute piece of trash this film is.  We have all these characters we follow, all with extremely dull development; none of which show any reason why we should be following them.  They could have quite literally picked any person at random in the town and it would have made zero difference. 

Everything xeno related, including the PredAlien, looks like a rubbery/foam creature from Power Rangers with lots of Vaseline applied to show up in the god awful dark color grading that makes any and everything hard to see.  I have watched this on different HDTVs and projectors, and it's a showcase of how not to grade a movie; with blacks that get so crushed there is no discernible difference between the background and dark area on the creature.

The "build up" to the nuke felt like someone was trying to tell a joke, forgot all the lines, but delivers the punch line anyways. 

AvP is, by orders of magnitude, a much better, yet still flawed, film.

I personally enjoyed AvP more then AvPR while I do agree they're both bad movies, I can't help but have a soft spot for the first AvP it's a guilty pleasure for me, while I wish A LOT of things could've been handled in both films (characters, plot, CGI, consistency with both species) I do feel that objectively the first one wasn't as good as my opinion likes to say, but also objectively it's better then AvPR.

I agree

AvP, while flawed, is lightyears ahead of AvPR.

I was barely able to sit through AvPR the second time. I doubt ill ever watch it a third time.

I have nostalgia for both but I think the first one is much better.

I was doing an alien/predator franchise movie marathon recently, I got up to AVPR but found that I couldn't finish it, managed to endure it up to the hospital hive scene then turned it off. I will have to get myself drunk I think before considering finishing it. I still got Prometheus and Covenant to do as well, at least they will be easier to deal with.
