Alien vs. Predator: Requiem
Hard to believe I finished watching this movie in its entirety. I'm not one of those die-hard Alien or Predator fans, but even I can tell that this movie f*cks up all types of stuff established in the original franchises. Aliens can now go from face hugger to full grown alien within minutes. A queen alien isn't even needed anymore since apparently, the predalien (hybrid) seems to be able to both lay face hugger eggs and
directly inject baby aliens into humans. AVP:R also picked up the shaky camera technique (blech!) so the fights between the predator and aliens are impossible to tell what happens. And apparenty, the Predator homeworld is only 5 minutes away from Earth. I know this is sci-fi, but come on, even Star Trek didn't even do that.
Anyways, once again, FOX fails to realize that main attraction between a Predator/Alien mashup is THEIR FIGHT!! The pizza boy lusting after the blonde cheerleader plotline was crap. The convict recently released from jail that the sheriff seems to think could do better plotline was crap. The army mom who seems to have lost her connection to her daughter plotline was crap. Even the setting was conflicting. Supposed to be a small Colorado backwoods town with only a sheriff to handle things, but had things only large cities usually have like a gas/electricty plant and elaborate sewer systems with bums living inside. Guess questions like that doesn't matter to the filmmakers since the town/city gets nuked at the end. Gee, how the hell can the US military explain setting off a nuke on American soil? Who cares, since the movie doesn't, right?
Only because what you do get to see of the Predator killing Aliens was cool and the blonde cheerleader strips to her underwear for 30 seconds. Sorry for my rant, but this movie upset me. Sorry for any spoilers too, but honestly, this movie really has no plot to spoil.
The cake is a lie.
