I guess the big thing going for this movie is gimmick, novelty, crossover whatever. But with a hack like Paul WS Anderson working on it, there's plenty of ways this can be fucked up. If you look at old school action or survival horror flicks like Alien, Aliens, Predator etc. they are the complete antithesis of the crap that Anderson makes. The alien and predator flicks were very well made polished movies with emphasis good storytelling and slow, torturous almost claustrophobic suspense. They didn't have the ultra-slick, high testoserone, music video editing like most of Anderson's films. These were just hard, scary, raw flicks, but the films come off as being made of high quality.
If Aliens vs. Predator was made more in vein of the old school flicks and not some MTV 21st century Resident Evil crap, I might check it out. If not, disaster. It's just too bad 20th Century Fox couldn't find a legitimate director to do this flick like Bryan Singer on X-men and X-2.

Oliva: You are the weakest link! Goodbye!
Stewie: Ahahaha. Oh God, that's funny. That's really funny. You write your own material? Do you? Because that is so fresh. 'You are the weakest link. Goodbye!' You know I've never heard anyone make that joke before. You're the first. I've never heard anyone reference that outside program before. Because that's what she says on the show, right? Hmmm? 'You are the weakest link. Goodbye!' And ye...ye..yet you've taken it and....and used it out of context to insult me in this everyday situation. What a clever, smart girl you must be. To come up with a joke like that all by yourself. Mmmmm...that's so fresh too. Any Titanic jokes you want to throw at me as long as we're hitting these phenomena at the height of their popularity. Mmmm? Cuz i'm here God you're so funny!
Ok, so I was dragged to see this last night at a 10:45 showing. I can honestly say that I was NOT all that empressed by the first one and I didn't have all that high of expectations for this one. Mostly, I wanted to see the Freddy Vs.
