I went and saw Alien vs Predator last night, despite many warnings not to. I actually enjoyed it, but I thought it should be longer. And I was kinda hoping for little penguin aliens…

They sped up the whole alien gestation and maturation period, which was kind of a slap in the face to the other alien movies but I could understand how the movie needed it to be faster. Also, that was one very personable predator. I was waiting for him and that chick to make out at the end then go back to his homeworld and make predator babies. Seriously, they might as well have given him some cheesy back story, involving a parent that never quite beleived in him but came to root for him at the end. Or maybe he’s haunted by the memory of a fallen comrade in a previous battle but overcomes his grief in order to save the climber chick. Man, predator/human babies, that has fourth degree tear written all over it…

Basically, don’t go see this movie hoping for good acting, plot, dialogue, or any other measure of cinematic quality. Go see it cuz its Alien vs Predator. You get to see lots of shots of the whole alien which totally rocks, you get to see Human-Bishop be retarded, and there’s minimal backstory on the hapless victims. I hope they do a sequel, cuz they leave it wide open for the best sequel ever at the end. I mean, I was kinda rooting for the aliens…
