Wolf'sGirl: They should have done a good AvP when the first one made $170 million worldwide. Anderson got a fairly low budget ($60 million) and they hacked up his script and rushed the production, and AvP was the result. Watchable but below par. Still, the movie was a huge global hit and made almost 3 times more than it cost. You would think that Fox would give the sequel a bigger budget and get in some great actors and a great director to make the best movie possible so that it's an even bigger hit. Fox didn't do that. Instead, they gave AvP 2 HALF the budget of the original! That's unheard of. They hired a hack screenwriter, a bunch of TV stars, and two special effects guys to make the movie. AvPR should have been sent straight to DVD. So why would Fox suddenly be our friend if we give them money for AvP 2? They're NEVER going to make the big, epic AvP that fans want. The only way to teach them is if we don't pay for garbage. If we do that, it'll send a message to them that we expect good filmmaking. This may either kill the franchise or re-start the Alien series (it's been almost 18 years since a stand-alone Predator film, I think that's pretty much dead), but at least we won't get a crappier, cheaper AvP 3.
