Aliens Vs Predator, A Dialogue



Am I the only person who thinks the new Alien Vs Predator film looks like a teen horror flick?

I think you're the only person thinking about it.


No, seriously.

Seriously.


Teen horror.

I dunno, man. All I hear is people going on about the violence and how much there is--but it's all so fake I can't see how people are getting worked up on it.


Look--look, forget that. Do you see the teenagers that are played by actors in their thirties thing going on?

Maybe they're in their mid twenties in the film?


Come on, don't you totally get an I Know What You Did Last Summer vibe out of this?

At a push.

I'd go more Texas Chainsaw Massacre the remake, myself.


You do see it!

...


Haha!

Fucking cunt.


Hahaha.

...

Sigh.

Anyhow, you want to know what I really love? I love how the film is called Requiem. That's total class.


It's Mozart and Latin funerals all over again, man.

i dunno. this one looks a lot worse than the first one, though, i didn't mind the first. perhaps it was the low expectations, tho. who knows.

as for the violence, every time i see it linked, there's a warning about how graphic it is. heh. like green blood and bad acid on face images are going to concern me when i can flip on the news and see real people all hurt.

I love how they've constantly wavered on the title. It's Alien vs Predator 2! No, wait! Aliens vs Predator! Get it? Like the Cameron film! We're clever! No, wait! Aliens vs Predator: Requiem! Now we're clever and classy!

The thing that saved the first AVP for me was that someone somewhere in the decision-making process worked out you were never going to get a sensible film out of the concept and that they'd be better off making the intergalactic WWE. From the trailer it looks like the sequel's forgotten that.

well, you know how it is with film titles: you don't want to be too subtle ;)

I just adore Fox's pre-occupation with acronym titles: ID4, LXG, AVP. It's like they're just too damned fast-paced to bother with words any more.

I also like the general pre-occupation in Hollywood with avoiding numbered sequels at the moment.

i reckon acronym titles are the shorthand key for piece of shit, myself...

I still think they should've called this one: Aliens 2 Predator Nil.
