Was Aliens vs. Predator Requiem too dark?

Could barely see! What is that bloody blob in the blackness?
Perfectly fine! The darker the better!

I'd never heard the "east coast got prints that were too dark" thing until I'd listened to the new podcast.  I personally saw a screening in Billings, Montana and it looked fine there.  Being in the western half of the country, this makes sense to me.  I'd be curious to hear where other positive and negative screening experiences happened in America.

All the way over here on the west coast it was still too damn dark to see anything.

The darkness makes the cgi effects look better.  Back in 2007, the software was not as sophisticated, they still can't reproduce accurate lighting and textures in cgi, but they're getting closer all the time.

It isn't there to make the (minimal) CGI effects look better. It's there because they screwed up.

And it still doesn't hide the CGI space craft from looking like obvious CGI. The ship shots form AVP three years earlier were more convincing and hold up better.

The movie look worse than it did in theaters. I was on the forums when AVPR came out in 2007 and I remember some people thought the trailers had better lighting than the actual movie did. I remember the SB claim that they like the movie looking dark.
