And the day was going so well...


...then this !

Aliens vs Predator
sequel a certainty

A sequel to last year's science fiction action movie Aliens vs Predator - Requiem is a "certainty", according to website Shock Till You Drop.

Requiem, directed by brothers Greg and Colin Strause, flopped on its US release but strong overseas box office figures may have convinced studio Fox to make a third instalment in the crossover franchise.

The Strause brothers earlier confirmed that a third Alien vs Predator film would move location from Earth to outer space.

The Alien and Predator franchises spawned six films between 1979 and 1997 before the characters came together for Paul W.S. Anderson's 2004 movie Alien vs. Predator.

Was Requiem really that bad? worth a rental?

Requiem bad? Only in the same way that Hitler was a bit naughty.
If you want to rent something, rent a big car and drive it at the Brothers Strause. Its a pity you can't rent a time machine to stop this steaming turd ever being made in the first place.

There is no Hope left in the world....I am so cold....I can't recall the taste of food... nor the sound of water... nor the touch of grass. I'm... naked in the dark, with nothing, no veil... between me... and the wheel of fire!

I tried watching a bit of requiem online, but found myself kicking my macintosh around screaming 'get out of my mac you heap of bollocks!'

Not a good movie.

Personally I'm still holding out for an Alien Vs The Muppets movie... my money would be on the French chef...

I found if you go into REQUIEM with ZERO expectation it can be enjoyable. The Strauses DO manage to pull off some decent enough shots, creature & fx work & it's arguably better (ie. not as bad) as Paul Anderson's original AvP.

It's hard to go into something that's part of a franchise without any expectation, had this been an original movie, i.e we'd never seen an Alien or a Predator then it might have worked, but it's just a pale imitation of much greater movies.

I ended up going to see AvP:R with some mates from work, it was bloody awful. Couldn't believe how badly made it was.
