Yes. I can still watch AVPR and have a great time. I love the Predalien. It's a mean and frightening looking monster and didn't lose any of it's greatness. Wolf is still the best Predator, ever. Coming to earth to clean up the Alien infestation and wiping out every human that comes in his way. Even Miss Yutani appears at the end which is really cool. So yes, this movie is getting better and better. The only Alien related movie I like less and less is Prometheus. What a worthless piece of trash. Please go away, Prometheus.
I see things completely the other way around. Prometheus is one of the best films in the series if not all time...
I haven't attempted to watch it for some years but the last time I did, I had to watch it in 3 sittings as I couldn't stomach it. I don't see how this train wreck could ever improve.
I find the scene with the pregnant woman to be the most disturbing. One of the worst scenes ever in any movie. It literally ruins the film for me. I like the Aliens series for the mystery of the unknown, not necessarily the horror aspects. It was too much.
I agree entirely. The scene with the pregnant woman was vile, pointless, stupid, and a completely nonsensical addition to the Alien life cycle. I can take alot of gore and grotsesque things, but something about that scene was just so phenomenally wrong and disgusting. Strange sexuality has been a centerpiece of the Alien series since the beginning, but Giger's vision was always subtle, always hinting at a greater horror but never just throwing it right in our faces. One thing that I really found bothersome about it was how it was handled; a scene like that you don't just throw into a popcorn action flick. I will admit that the idea of being pregnant with a human fetus and having an Alien embryo inside of you is riddled with horror potential, but Requiem treated it in the most crass way possible. I hadn't liked the film up till then but this scene sealed my disgust.
On answering the original question, no, the film does not improve with age. It's a dark, muddy, offensive and poorly written mess that makes the first AVP film (which I actually like, though admit that it has noticeable flaws) look like Gone With The Wind and Resurrection look like Casablanca. Even Predators, which, despite having seen twice, was pretty forgettable, is leaps and bounds beyond Requiem. This film is just horrid in every single way and is easily the nadir of the entire AVP franchise.
