    Aliens vs Predator: Requiem

    ★★★

    Weak story and human characters aside (not to forget some often underlit cinematography), the thing it does nail perfectly this time is the Predator. His look, feel and behaviour are all spot on. Dudes a total badass. It even throws in the right amounts of iconic score and sound design to really scratch that nostalgic itch. Fair to say this movie is unfairly judged.

    AVP: Alien vs. Predator

    ★★½

    Far from awful, and it does have some clever set up and ideas. It just fundamentally fails to nail the Predators properly as the agile lethal killing machines that they are in the original two movies. Seeing them running around as hulking great beefcakes just doesn't work at all, and is ridiculous to see.

    ★★★★

    I don't even know what to think right now. This movie was just pure bat-shit insanity and mayhem from start to finish. Definitely gonna take a few more watches to properly digest it.

    ★★★

    A balls to the wall brutal kill fest, let down by one of the most overwrought, repetitive, and melodramatic scripts I've heard in some time. Really do hope it grows on me more over time.
