Monster Flick...

...well, the movie was a bust... sure, it had Aliens and Predators... but, there were a few gaps in the story... I'll not go into them here... I don't want to spoil it for you.... in the end, and, here is the rub... the mark of the movie is always this.... would I see it again?... probably not.... it just didn't have the same suspense as either the Alien series, or Predator flicks.... but, if you've always wanted to see these two beasts get it on, then you'll enjoy the movie... even in spite of the bad story line and deviation from previous movie "givens"... acid blood, etc.... still, it managed to get the blood pumping a few times...

... on the other hand, the night went very well... The Wife and I had a great meal at a local Italian restaurant in Athens... we swilled a few beers, and listened to an elderly lady play classical guitar while we ate.... Dos Equis Dark was the flavor of the afternoon.... high culture for Athens, children... high culture.... the only dampener on the meal was when a rather large Mockingbird crashed into the window opposite our table, and bashed it's little brains out.... killed that sucker dead, children... it didn't even flop around after meeting that glass head on at about 20 mph, it just hit the dirt.... the moral?... speed kills, I suppose...

I can't see this film, because I think it's a crime to foist these primo aliens upon each other.

Having said that, did you ever notice in the otherwise forgettable Alien 2 that, when Danny Glover was on the alien spaceship, looking at the trophy case, there was a clean skeleton of an Alien creature? Oh, hell, yes. On safari. Lions and tigers and bears.

...yeah, I noticed it, Velociman... this movie goes further on that theme of Predators hunting Aliens.. sport, so to speak... in any case, the Predators are badass..

I saw AVP and enjoyed it but I doubt I will purchase it when it's released on DVD. I have been extremely disappointed in the movies. They just don't make them like they used to. The last good movie I saw was LOTR (all three).
