What are some changes in the AVP movies you would have made to improve the movie or movies more to your liking ?
Better lighting for AVPR, chestburster barfing und dreadlock-rasta-alien aside, I would have both of the movies set in space and would not have them connected like the two we got.
For the first i would have kept the plot of archeologists and billionaire sponsor searching ancient ruins but set it in space on the edge of the frontier where the ruins were discovered by settlers. Have the biollionaire also search for his legacy and trying to make a name for himself, but this time not an old one on the deadbed but why not a younger one trying to make a name for himself. Let him be one of multiple heirs to a corporate empire, with too much money, time and a sense for adventure.
I would skip the whole teenage predators on their first hunt angle. Just take a regular hunting party of 5 predators visiting an ancient hunting ground.
Also no shape shifting pyramid, outdoor action this time.
I would give the predators the naginata like weapons they use in some of the comics. It seems to be the perfect weapon to engage an alien in close combat. The reach of a spear, a heavy blade to cut of limbs, tails and heads, what's not to like. Makes a lot more sense than longer wristblades or a tiny spear.
Keep the acid blood a problem for the predators. Maybe not to the point it eats through their armor and weapons like in the first AVP, but eventually the gear should melt.
Of course make it as an R rated movie.
