It was a shining (possibly the best) example of how to make a craptastic movie all by itself while taking a cash grabbing dump on two great franchises.

That's the only positive thing I can think of.

Wolf the Predator is a badass.

The effects are way better than those in Covenant.

They bomb that horrible town and the characters in it.


PraetorianModerator2414 XPJun-25-2017 3:30 PM

That chick that pwned by the predator disk was pretty brutal!


PraetorianMember2861 XPJun-25-2017 3:43 PM

The Sfx were quite good quality, the scene where the aliens were picking off soldiers in the rain was nightmare-fuel. They weren't just Cameron-kamakazis, they were sneaking around, being ALIENS. :) It gave a neat little glimpse into the Yutani aspect of the universe.

The predator and the predator planet...that's about it lol

Nothing the God of biomechanics wouldn't let you in heaven for

The practical effects were fantastic and Wolf was a fun predator.

Probably the most positive aspect of it, however, was Brian Tyler. How he consistently finds the inspiration to compose truly great music for the absolute worst movies is a real gift.

joylitt - We get it, you didn't like Covenant. 


NeomorphMember1541 XPJun-25-2017 8:40 PM

Barf The Mog yep, and I think you have a few problems with this movie too :-)


TrilobiteMember8212 XPJun-25-2017 8:49 PM

joylitt & Barf The Mog

- Brothers and Sisters (as applicable), it seems difficult not to hate on something that created so much anticipation- and I am still waiting for the pre ordered blu ray to watch for the fist time! I am confident I will find some hate too, but it can't possibly be worse than AVPR- I cannot accept that lol!


NeomorphMember1541 XPJun-25-2017 9:06 PM

dk I hope the trade value on Amazon is good

Barf The Mog

FacehuggerMember146 XPJun-25-2017 9:08 PM

joylitt - Yes, only a few, but I liked it. The novel is superb, so far. 

dk - The DVD/Blu-Ray will hopefully have some nice features, definitely looking forward to that release. 

AVP & AVPR are painful to watch. 


TrilobiteMember8212 XPJun-25-2017 9:10 PM

joylitt I doubt it. I am a bit of a pack rat though- I still haven't gotten around to throwing away AVPR- I am unsure which vault I stored it in.


TrilobiteMember8212 XPJun-25-2017 9:13 PM

Barf The Mog I did this with Prometheus and am sure I will like AC better. I feel like a schmuck though since I know I will buy the director cut when/if it gets released.


NeomorphMember1541 XPJun-25-2017 9:18 PM

dk Prometheus is a masterpiece compared to Covenant. I would go to a hypnotist before watching it if I were you.


TrilobiteMember8212 XPJun-25-2017 9:21 PM

joylitt I guess we will have to agree to disagree. If you liked Prometheus- great. I was expecting something different and will leave it at that. I cannot honestly say until I see AC though to be fair.


NeomorphMember1541 XPJun-25-2017 9:35 PM

Prometheus is so so. At least looks good. Covenant doesn't.

FacehuggerMember146 XPJun-25-2017 10:16 PM

dk - Nothing wrong with owning two versions on disc. 


TrilobiteMember8212 XPJun-25-2017 10:57 PM

Barf The Mog Agree. I just hate buying something knowing other better versions are coming to milk my wallet.


TrilobiteMember8212 XPJun-25-2017 11:01 PM

Back to OT- A positive thing thing was seeing a bunch of hapless stupid kids die ensuring a cleaner gene pool in the future. MWHAAAAA! Good riddance!


NeomorphMember1541 XPJun-25-2017 11:12 PM

dk What about all those brain cells that died while watching the damn movie. Requiem gets the job done in that regard: it makes you more stupid.


TrilobiteMember8212 XPJun-25-2017 11:17 PM

joylitt Good point. Glad I only watched it 1.5 times.


FacehuggerMember390 XPJun-26-2017 2:01 AM

It takes place on earth


FacehuggerMember105 XPJun-26-2017 4:29 AM

It ended. :)


DeaconMember10358 XPJun-26-2017 7:02 AM

I am going to make a Frightening Admission...

I have only seen the movie... partially twice... and i dont really remember much about it as i lost interest and never saw it all the way through or paid attention as it was so awful.

I thought the Effects and Action was pretty decent... but the Plot and Silliness was Awful... maybe when i give it 3/10 i am being generous..

Oh well i will go and Dig out the Boxed Set and Watch it after and then i can come back to this Topic ;)

"Good point. Glad I only watched it 1.5 times."

LOL i know what you mean.... my first time people with me was talking and it got so awful we was joking about stuff and talking about the other movies.

So i never really paid too much attention to whole thing.

My 2nd attempt i got half way through and could not watch anymore lol.....   and i usually have a Great Memory but i recall so little for this movie which means its Truly Forgettable.

I think i stopped watching it because it took a Big Dump all over the Franchises...

Mind you i felt AC had done a tiny dump on the Franchise too, but with AC i can kind of see why things was done the way they was...

Ever since I bought AVPR on DVD, I have certainly got my money’s worth. Well worth every penny spent. It is a DVD that has really stood the test of time imo. I think one of the great things about it, is that it is a great conversation piece and ice breaker. I just cannot express any more praise about it. It is a rare event indeed if it is not to be seen on my DVD player ever since making it into a makeshift ash tray.


FacehuggerMember390 XPJun-26-2017 12:14 PM

I bought the dvd on a flea market for 1 buck. 


TrilobiteMember8212 XPJun-26-2017 1:14 PM

Batchpool Nice one!
