You guys gotta stop watching the DVD.  ;D

It makes all the difference!

DVD


Blu-ray


Indeed.

AVP: Requiem DVD


AVP: Requiem Blu-ray


Well played  :D

If I included both the DVD and Blu-Ray in the “annul rite of passage” (lol Voodoo), maybe I could look for this reported difference between the two. Alas, that would mean twice the vice and too many AvPR’s for my liking  :(

Honestly, playing the DVD with a bit of goofing with brightness and contrast settings yields essentially the same results as the bluray. It's still trash but you can see more suit details.

And either version is still less bland and insipid than AvP (2004).

At least in AVP you can see what the hell is going on and it doesn't look like two amateurs shot it in a couple of days.

Oh, and Lance Henriksen.

Personally I greatly pefer AvP. There are a few great visuals atleast imo and there is a certain entertainment value to it. Scientists on an adventure into the artic to dicover an ancient alien pyramid is far less bland than small town America, pizza boys, and highschool bully problems..

And yet I can remember that the generic teen protagonist was called Ricky. The only character name I can remember from AvP is Weyland, which... isn't really from AvP is it?

I think I prefer AvP just because you can actually see what the f**k is going on.  It IS pretty bland and I think it becomes pretty boring once all the nameless mercs are taken out. 

AvP2 had the best death scene when cheerleader girl is shuriken'd to the wall. 

They are both I have nothing better to do on a rainy day movies that probably killed any kind of chance for a legit AvP movie to be made.
