i've liked every movie in both franchises so far. AVP being one of the most under rated, mostly because its the most different. Hey all you gore heads, the original Alien movies weren't R for violence or gore, they were R because they did what a horror movie is supposed to: created a mood that would cause minors nightmares. Gore for gores sake isn't scary. Predator 2 was also under rated because Conan didn't reprise his role. But despite your fanboy protestations AVPr doesn't fit anywhere. While the other movies had decent scripts, direction, acting, fx, lighting, pacing, etc AVPr has no redeeming qualities. The fight scenes are fleeting. No tension. The predator home world SUCKED! Now that you've seen one glimpse of a Mars-like world the next time the Pred home world is shown you will be disappointed if it doesn't look the same. Regardless of whether the script rocks you people will cry, that's not what the Strause Brothers showed. Wah, the Strause Bros will NOT be directing another installment thank god so don't get attached to any plotlines from this turd. If another effort is green lit then it will be completely different than AVPr.
