My guys please pay attention to what thread you're in.

I said I laughed, not rolled my eyes bitterly. I enjoyed the absurdity and stupidity of the moment.

SiL

And you were just singing the praises of the designs.

Corporal Hicks

And snipped. Remember the intent of the thread please.

(Bad Blood)

I also wanted to say I think that wolf was really well designed, the mask, the armor placement, the skin and muscle was really well done and the addition of the bone horn/spikes on the body was really awesome. I also loved that they brought in an idea on how Predators got rid of evidence, the use of the blue liquid that dissolves organic matter was really cool. Also the first time two plasma casters were used which I thought was super awesome. All In all I actually liked a lot of the films design.

Master Chief

I liked the opening sequence, particulary Wolf receiving the distress signal and preparing to depart.  I also liked Wolf's arrival on Earth.

Kradan

I liked it too ... well, at least, the unrated edition version. I liked that Wolf had to do some "investigation" and retrieve information from dead Pred's mask as opposed to theatrical versiin where he learned about the Predalien's presence right from the start

City Hunter Yautja

The Yautja/Pred whip was intriguing. I like the idea of using it to hook a Xeno like a fishingline and pulling them close for wristblades.

I like the dumb power glove.

City Hunter Yautja

I like the Yautj/ Pred ship crash.

Car1os

Wolf's epic entrance into the hospital, because f**k opening doors.  :laugh:

Is there not a gif of that around here somewhere?

There is a lot I liked. I liked the characters better than those of AvP who were just of the boring scientific kind. There was actually a bit of tension because the characters in requiem felt more real and vulnerable.

The idea of a predator arriving to clean up the mess was neat

the predalien impregnating the women was nasty

The film had more of a violent edge compared to avp

Promising setpieces (powerplant, hospital, army fight etc) with a nice variety ( but obviously awfully shot and dark)

Overall I think the idea had a lot of potential but it was probably a bit too expensive to pull it off hence the darkness and short and unclear fight scenes.

Fine with first 20 minutes, Pred ship scene.

I like the AVP pyramid idea, the queen alien being captive to breed the hunt, and the flashback scene and the predator ship.

AVPR I liked the opening and the warrior and wolf.

Something good about AvPR? Not the easiest of challenges... 😅

Ok, I liked that the reproductive cycle of the predalien differed. I sometimes feel that there is an overwhelming portion of the fandom that will not accept anything that deviates from what was seen in 'Aliens', rejecting eggmorphing etc. This of course is fuelled by years of expanded media (Dark Horse comics and games) which simply repeated what was seen in the second movie. But if you take what is seen in the movies as the only consideration for a moment, I feel there has *never* been one definitive 'cycle' - from eggmorphing in the first movie, the queen/hive system in the second, the introduction of a superfacehugger in Alien 3 etc... the whole appeal of the xeno to me, it's that it is alien. Once you have it all figured out, and give it a simple insectoid life cycle, it's much less alien, and a lot more animal. I like my Xenos to be unpredictable, and chaotic,and adapting in whatever means necessary to reproduce (which is why I enjoyed the concept of the pathogen introduced in Prometheus and seeing all the wonderful diverse organisms and mutations that can result from it).

So yeah, not a fan of AvPR, but I'll give them credit for trying something new with the xeno.
