I want a third option to tingle my sadomasochism.

Covenant, Resurrection, and Prometheus. In that order.

While drinking the cheapest, shittiest vodka I can find.


That's what we call a madness run.


I hold the original three films above any of the rest. Alien 3 is flawed as Hell, but Resurrection is stupid,  Prometheus is beautiful, but even dumber, and Covenant is just NOPE THE MOVIE.

How about Predator, Predators and The Predator or Predator 2, AVP, and AVPR in one sitting?

Damn. Predator's great, Predators is meh, and I hate The Predator. 

On the other hand, Predator 2 is the best Predator film, and I hate the other two.

I think I'll choose option B, just to get Predator 2. Sorry Arnie. :laugh:

First option. But actually - Covenant, Alien, Aliens.

Option A. Predator's a classic, Predators is far better than it gets credit for, and nothing compares to my hatred for Requiem.

I think I'd go with A because of how much I love Predator and Predators, but man that The Predator is sure a rough option. AvPR is worse, but The Predator is so much sorer atm.

It still blows my mind that The Predator is nearly AVPR level bad... looking at his filmography, with stuff like The Nice Guys, Black should have been an excellent choice for Predator.

First off, it's really not - the few undeniably decent scenes in it are leagues above the entirety of Requiem - and secondly, I still believe most of the shittiest stuff in The Predator was out of Black's hands.

I don't think it was at all well implemented, but as a concept I didn't find the idea of them looking for benefits in the condition that ridiculous.

I was more bothered by the idea they've been harvesting DNA in general instead of just hunting for lulz.

I've still not read the early script draft, but the impression I get from the original plot and additional deleted Predators is the first cut more strongly implied that such hybridisation isn't condoned or carried out by most Predators, which works better for me.

You didn't think the idea of Predators kidnapping children to harvest autism from their spinal columns to make themselves super powered was ridiculous?
