:lol your kidding , right??? Predator 2 was awesomeHey it wasn't as bad as Predator II.
That's the first time I've ever read that with regards to AVP."AVP was not a bad movie."[/b]
I've been wanting to see a tighter edit of the first Star Trek movie for years. I've always insisted that amidst the sprawling monstrosity of The Motion Picture is a decent movie that just needs to be edited out of it.
I agree with you on the MI2 point. I really didn't like that film.
John Woo has such a cheesy style that it makes me cringe. All that 'doves flying into the sunset' and 'coats blowing slowly in the wind'. Honestly, if it was anyone else - you'd say Woo films were dated 80's cheese.
But Paul Anderson is not a terrible director.
Regardless of whether you liked the concept of Aliens and Predators in the same film. Or the fact that alot of people see the combination as a sell out of the franchise, there was nothing 'technically' wrong with the film.
It was well shot, lit and edited. The props were well researched and produced and the special effects were stunning. The only thing that let it down was the plot.
If we are going to be critical of Anderson as a film maker Lukes Roomate, let's sit and criticise the last million dollar blockbuster you directed.
