Not to sound like a "sheep", Bringer, but I totally agree with you. Sh*t, how do you think I feel knowing that my 2 favorite monsters are gonna be 'softened up' to please the younger crowd? You know, there's an old saying that goes, "Money is the root to all evil", and it's also the root to stupidity. It's gut-wrenching to see how far Fox goes to make a movie aimed at an audience that probably knows absolutely nothing about the 2 creatures that are featured. But they think "Well, we really don't care what the fans want just as long as we get what we want- $$$$." That would be like a recording artist saying that he/she doesn't give a damn what they're fans want as long as they go buy their album. It's shady, greedy, and just plain wrong. But hey, that's the way Hollywood is. It all boils down to this, folks- no matter how you look at this movie, in one way or another, it's gonna end up being dissapointing. Whether it be the rating, the story, the dialogue, the director, the lack of blood and gore, the score, the creature designs, or Fox themselves EVERYBODY is gonna have something to complain about. And for those of you who despite everything negative about AVP STILL have high hopes, you need a good slap in the face and brought back down to reality, (and I'm not saying that trying to piss anybody off). I for one don't care about the rating as long as the gore (that includes human) is present, and believe me there is nobody, and I mean NOBODY who's a bigger gore maniac than me . But newsflash, THERE CAN'T BE HUMAN GORE WITH A PG-13 RATING!!! There's only one way to find out to see if AVP even remotely lives up (which is about 85% that it won't)- and that's to go see it Aug. 13, with or without the "free" movie ticket.
