What purpose would it have to punch holes in a dead victem? in the AVP-R psp game also you clearly see an Alien eating someone.
I don't know what purpose it would serve, but it sure as heck wasn't eating anything.
Like I said, it seriously looked like the thing had a low IQ and was majorly obsessed with doing the same thing on a loop. The directors might have had a different intent, but it didn't get conveyed very well, if they had.
It makes perfect sense to me, just like in the AVP2 PC game. why would the Alien even have a mouth if it dosent eat? I dont think it needs to eat to survive though, probably just eats for pleasure and strength.
I pointed out the problem with it being portrayed as actually 'eating' - and it applies to the game, too.
1: If it was physically eating, it would either have to use the main jaws and tear pieces of flesh away.
2: If it exclusively uses the inner jaws and not outers, then just sdtriking them in and out does nothing. It should have struck in, then kept
them in the wound and started to do the actually feasting.
The game portrayed striking as a method to eat, but those who made it didn't really think about the mechanics of doing so. It was like how they had the Predators being unable to stay cloaked when firing, even though it contradicted the films. Or how that Predalien was slower
than a human-hosted version. A lot of very unrealistic decisions were taken for making that game, purely to provide 'balance'.
He was crushing their necks.
Yet they were very clearly still moving and thrashing about - especially their razor-tipped tails.
Heck, if we're going to believe the Predator's whip was capable of doing what it did, because of being Alien tail, then they need not even have stabbed. They could have just wrapped around and shredded.
When I watched it, I made the deliberate decision to see it as a 'monster film'. Something unconnected from both series, in the hope that would improve my view of it. It did, but things like that were still blatently obvious mistakes. I was sitting there, watching it, remembering how one of the directors kept hinting to us that something unpredictable would happen during it and... Nothing. It was taken up with the Predator posing, looking at each of the creatures in turn and I'm watching it, unable
to think of anything other than, "Why don't they do
something about it?"
The Predalien was probably curious as to what the Predator was doing.
No, it was arrogant. It wasn't tilting its head or anything, like the Queen at the elevator. It was just standing there, roaring its head off. Challenging.
have just rushed the Predator and torn its guts out, but seemingly could not be bothered to do so. Much like when the Predator vaguely wounded it a bit, across the thorax or when the hunman group took a few meaningless shots at it and made it run away.
The Predalien should
have been portrayed as a vicious, unstoppable killing machine, even more so than its brethren. How it was ultimately shown, was as a big bulky thing prone to 'rage issues' and scared of anything which went 'bang'.
Seriously, I think the Acheron Aliens could easily have killed it. They didn't f**k around. This Predalien did.
I don't know, maybe Predators going on Alien hunts get injected with something to make any hosted Alien easier to kill and looking stupid or something... At least, maybe if they do, there's hope for a future story to do the concept justice in the way it should.
