I gues what people are real mad about is the Predalien being a walking Facehugger i mean if the Predalien  can lay eggs down host throats couldn't all the other aliens  do it too  i hated that idea i mean thats what the facehuggers are for it made you feel like the Predalien belonged in Species movie  If its not broken dont fix it

The Predalien being a walking facehugger is pointless and dumb as the Alien drone turining people into Eggs as seen in Ridley Scott's Alien   theres no need for it its already there the Face huggers lay the embyo eggs down there hosts throat and the Queen lays the face hugger eggs   no need for a walking Predalien/facehugger or an Alien drone that can turn its prey into giant Eggs thats why they scrached that idea  again if its not broken dont fix it

I think the idea behind the Predalien being able to reproduce in this way was due to the fact that it was in the beginning stages of being a queen.  It makes sense that a young queen would want as many drones as possible to start a protective hive before it evolved to the queen we have all seen before.  It also makes sense that the aliens would sense the Predator (Scar) as the best host for the queen chestburster because it is superior when pitted against the other human hosts that were around.  This is all speculation of course, but when you look at it this way it may shed some light on what the Brothers were trying to do.

Nice job, Strause brothers.  I truly enjoyed the movie.  While most reviews focus on the creature effects and comparisons with earlier films, this movie won me over by its handling of mood, timing, and pace, a consistently gritty visual, and an awesome score.  As for the predalian and its new reproduction method: if you can't free yourself up from the old stories, then you really are stuck just doing the same thing over and over (Fangoria's complaint, although I think they're wrong in this case).

"Third Highest Xmas Opening" sounds really great until you see what numbers 4 and 5 are.  :D

Maybe its a hint that theres only one sex in predators.  Predators maybe reproduce on their own?  Or come out of the grounds (dwarfs from lord of the rings joke) So thats why a queen version of the pred alien reproduces that way.  Can be many reasons.  No point in jumping the wagon.   Think people THINK!.  LOL Just an idea I came up with.  Im one damn smart cookie.  i wanna direct next movie with Griker! ahaaha
