A V P
« on: June 16, 2004, 06:28:01 PM »
So, I finally saw a trailer for the upcoming Alien vs Predator movie. It almost seemed like a lotta hype. In my youth I was quite the fan of both comic series. I think it was Dark Horse that originally did them. I liked (some) of the movies also. I dunno -I would like to see the AVP concept come to the big screen as much as the next big fan. I just hope it doesn't end up being one of those totally strained and artificial plots designed just to paste the characters together in an eye-candy type environment. You know - like a crappy fanfic. God, this movie could so rock if it is done just right. What do y'all think?
OHHH, The Drama!

Well this is by the same people who did Freddy Vs Jason, and that was great.. I loved that movie (and i'm glad they are making a sequel.). As long as they do it right, I don't see why this couldn't be great.. Movie legends fighting each other are always great.. I do think this one will be more "scary" then Freddy Vs Jason (it wasn't really that scary.). I don't know which (this movie or the sequel.), but I heard they had casted wrestler Chris "Chris Jericho" Irwin.. I don't know if its true, but thats what I heard.

I was actually surprised by the trailer. It looks like the people behind the movie paid attention this time lol. It looks really good, which is a WHOLE lot better then I expected. I'll wait and see how it turns out.

Ok I just saw it and here is the spoiler free review of it. There are two kinds of people that are going to see this movie, 1) They're looking for a movie thats gunna kick the crap out of the Alien and Predator series and are going to be dissapointed and 2) People that are just looking for a very nice action flick using some VERY nice CGI work, and sproting the two coolest sci-fi villians of all time, and are just looking for a movie that's just plain fun to watch... these people will enjoy the flick very much. I myself fit into the second group, so I of course liked the movie cus I didn't go into it expecting it to be revolutionary, I expected it to be a cool action movie, and thats exactly what it was. As long as you don't make this up do be more then it is, then you'll enjoy it as well.

The movie reminded me of the comic series. I think it was Dark Horse. I liked the movie, just from an entertainment standpoint. I think purists and trekie-type people will probably be disappointed.

I never did like Freddy vs. Jason, but this one ( i hope) mave have got it this time.  I think ur right about it being a Dark Horse Ill check back on that, but i haven't seen it yet but i do want too, I just hope thier aint no super women in this one that saves the day like in all the recent horror movies has been.  You would be correct in think that A. V P. is a comic of Dark Horse.

I have heard nothing saying its better than Freddy vs Jason, so I doubt it is. Freddy vs Jason ruled. :P

Edit: And it was rated R! *gasp*
