Q
In the scene when the Alien impales the predator with its tail and then brings him to his face and kills him, as anyone noticed how big the aliens tail during the scene, its about 10ft long, how did the CGI team not notice that the tail was way to long?

Hardly blame the CGI team.  Blame Anderson for not shooting coherent location footage.

Though this has nothing to due to the subject, I really enjoyed how the Two monsters were introduced into the same frame together. Even if the it was unrealistic, it was awesome to see those two meet face-to-face like that

I do love the scene but Andrson should have checked the tail thing.

I'm still a bit iffy about the whole town thing. Sounds like a monsters come to a quiet suburban neighbor hood and cause havok movie like Critters or Gremlins :-\

Me too if I think the movie takes place in a city suburbs. But when a little town in the desert pops up...this thing just might work

Q
if it wasn't for everyone complaining about the length of the tail, i would never have noticed.

I say this because the scene was an awesome way to set up the first face to face of an alien and pred, so i was focused on the "wow" moment rather than "oh, the tail's too long, i can't enjoy, let alone like this movie"...

Not only that but an adult alien would never be able to lift a Predator off the ground.
