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.
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.
