AvP was tolerable on its own. Encapsulated in the Aliens/Predator universes (which were fine for crossover in comics, but definitely not in movies), it's trash.

It's not even believable...they're in Antarctica and that chick is running around in a t-shirt for like the last 20 minutes.

AvP had Lance Henrikson in it, so it wins by default.

That and the characters had ZERO DEPTH. It was all Hollywood look at me BS.

Compare that stupid "ice chick" to Hicks, Ripley, Hudson, etc. No comparison in characters.

I couldn't agree more.

Aliens is probably my all-time favorite movie. Everything that came after it has just been an embarassment.

Bill Paxton, Bill Pullman, Sigourney Weaver, Lance Henrikson, Paul Reiser...all-star cast, all-star story and all-star action.

Aliens was sort of a near-perfect storm of action-horror hybrid, though. The odds are pretty damn long that we'll ever see something like that again. (While the original Alien was more straight horror, and still considered one of the finest modern achievements in that category. Apples and oranges.)

Gently nudging this back on-topic for a minute: for whatever damnable reason, all of Sony's hopes for BD more or less rest on the PSgrill...whether they really wanted them to or not.
