Thumbs up AVP

For all us AVP fans, all I have to say is, FRIGGEN AWESOME...

Aliens vs. Predator - Requiem
Running Time:Unknown
Release Dateecember 25, 2007
MPAA Rating:R for violence, gore and language

Starring:Reiko Aylesworth, Steven Pasquale, Gina Holden, David Hornsby, (II), Johnny Lewis, (II), Shareeka Epps
Directed by:Greg Strause, Colin Strause

What's The Story

It was bad enough when the face-hugging, acid-dripping Aliens and the infrared-seeing, scary-mouthed Predators were battling it out in the Antarctic. Now they're busting each other up in the good ole' U.S. of A. After a Predator ship crashes near a small Colorado town, humans can't help but get involved in the fight. But how can mere humans hope to contain the menace that's spreading? Maybe the combatants will just kill each other off. Then again, there is that mutant Predator/Alien hybrid that was spawned in the last movie; that guy isn't going quietly.

Three Good Reasons

1 No one man could direct a film of this scope. It takes two brothers: Colin and Greg Strause in their feature debut.

2 "24" fans who miss Reiko Aylesworth as Michelle Dessler once again get to see her dealing with impossible pressures and explosive action.

3 A preview of the movie was not allowed to be shown at this year's ComicCon because it was too violent. So you know it's got to have some good gore.

Bet You Didn't Know

Before the first Alien vs. Predator movie came out in 2004, the franchise had already been a comic book series, several video games, three sci-fi novels, and a toy line. At various points in the comics, the Terminator, Batman and Superman joined in the fight.

Yeah, I can't wait to see this, I can't wait to see how their going to tie this in with the original Alien's movies down the road or if they are. But there another movie coming out this month called The Mist it's a movie based on one of Stephen Kings stories. From what little I've seem on it looks pretty good too.

Alien(s), etc. were good movies. Predator(s) were good movies. Put them together in AVP and it was okay. I did't rave about it, nor did I change the channel. I'll probably feel the same about this new one. I'll watch it.

I want to see this movie as well. But will most likely will have to wait 'til it comes out on DVD since no one will go with me probably...

I may get to see The Mist in theatre's though. I'm reading the story now (it's only like 100 pages).

Man this looks like it's going back to each movie's roots. At 0:55, I could have sworn it's Sigourney Weaver saying "Hold on!" in the second clip. I am definately seeing this on christmas. Too bad my g/f will be under the seat the whole movie or won't want to go.

She's either Reiko Aylesworth (24 and ER) or Chelah Horsdal (a few random cameos in movies and tv shows 'Minivan mom' in Xmen 3)

Either way, I like that it's turning into almost a horror film and bring the scary back into the series instead of just either one of them being badd ass.

Anyone else see this movie yet? I did friday. It was good, but I think they tried to cram to much into to short a film.

Yeah, I liked "I am Legend" too, normally I don't like anything that Will Smith's in, but this movie he nailed it. Should've had Chevy's.

Ignore reviews. I never pay them any mind. Much better to form your own opinion.

I liked I Am Legend, but would have preferred a different ending, and some more explanation about a couple things... I usually like most of Will Smith's movies myself...

I've usually found that if on the very rare time that I do look at a movies review and it reviews badly, most likely it's gotta be a good movie.

If I didn't have to pay for it in both free time and money, I would. Unfortunately I get the time to see one movie or so a month. My free time is entirely too sparse to spend on crappy movies.

That said, when people ask me how I Am Legend was, I tell them to definitely go see it, but walk out about 5 min before it ends, and just pretend it ended however it did in your mind, cause it's better than the actual one.

Very true. Movie reviewers usually don't like anything that isn't 'artsy'

But did you notice this? in the beggining of the movie he stops it this road filled with old cars the the deer were running through, one of the cars in the very front was a 3rd gen camaro? YEAH BABY! this happened a few other times on the movie were a camaro was around, but I can't remember when ucz I've only seen it once. I'm sure that the camaro thing was accidental thing, but that's just one thing I noticed.

Plus, yah know, I don't blame the guy. I wouldn't drive a Ford unless it was the last car on earth either.

I know this is, cough cough, of AVP but I went to I Am Legend tonight… It’s definitely worth watching. Nothing like the book but follows the basic story line… I give it a

I saw it today…
It was entertaining, but the first AVP was better IMHO. I think Jak's right that there was too much story when it had such a short run time. The best part was when the alien and predator threw down - it ROCKED!

I think AVPR was much better that AVP, especially if you watch the first one before you see the new one. the predator is a bad a$$ but if you think about it the pred's from the first movie were young, this one was a full fledged warrior. I enjoyed it, dont forsee it getting an oscar but worth 10 bucks, if your cheap catch a matinee for 4 bucks.
