I thought it was good and payed a proper homage to the "old" flicks. Been waitin' almost twenty years for a "true" sequel. I wasn't a big fan of the AVP series. Aliens is good. Predator is good. Don't mix the two. Thoughts?

I haven't seen it yet, but I am going too. As for the other films.

Predator is great. Its sequel sucked.

I enjoyed the first AvP. While far off from the comic, it tried to capture that same spirit. The sequel sucked.

I have no problem mixing the two, if the movie is done well. But that is the reality. If they actually make a good movie, no matter what aliens you throw in it, then it's a good movie. Hollywood is just not good about making good movies.

Predators was produced by Robert Rodriguez though. I like his stuff. Gives me great hope for this film.

I go in there with the concerted idea that I'm not going to expect much from the movie I'm going to watch. Leaving the cinemas with this mental seed planted pre-viewing most everything ends up smelling of roses!

I caught it last week. If you go in with the mindset of action flick, deep plot not needed, you will have a good time.

I think it is very true to the original movies canon.
