Plot:
Packed with adrenaline-pumping action, heart-stopping suspense, plus seven additional minutes of unrated, blood-soaked footage too shocking for theaters, this unrated version of AVP-Requiem escalates the war between sci-fi's scariest movie icons!

After a horrifying PredAlien crash-lands near a small Colorado town, killing everyone it encounters and producing countless Alien offspring, a lone Predator arrives to "clean up" the infestation. Soon it's an all-out battle to the death with no rules, no mercy — and hundreds of innocent people caught in the crossfire. As the creature carnage continues, a handful of human survivors attempt a daring escape, but the U.S. government may be hatching a deadly plan of its own...

My Thoughts:
This one I enjoyed quite a bit. My favorite movie so far this weekend. They went somewhere a bit new for Alien and Predator movies (that I have seen)... in that they involve a whole town instead of being in a secluded area. Which I found to be a nice change of pace for these movies. I really liked Reiko Aylesworth's character in this one. This is the first time I seen her in anything other then 24... which was cool. And a little weird at the same time. While watching... every time she was on the screen I almost felt like... where is Jack Bauer to help his friend!  :P

Anyway... as I said... it is a nice change of pace for the movies. There was some pretty cool effects... not to mention the cool toys the Predators had. This is one I would feel comfortable recommending if you enjoyed the other Alien and Predator movies. Hopefully you would find the change of pace as enjoyable as I did.

I have heard of that one (Somewhere in Time) many times... but never seen it. Would you say it is a must have?
it is essentially a romance movie.
And I must add not a romantic comedy as those Sandra Bullock's films you like. But surprisingly I like it too...

My Thoughts:
Thought I would go with a comedy the first thing this morning. Unfortunately I did end up with much of one. I wasn't even half an hour in and I wondered if I could make it through this movie. I did somehow make it till the end of the movie. I am not sure how... I was somehow unable to look away. The movie is very predictable.. I knew where it was going every step of the way. And worst of all... as hard as it tried it just was not funny. I wasn't even able to crack a smile watching this one. Well at least not till the end credits when they showed some out-takes. They were the best thing about the entire movie. This movie has some very pretty girls in it. But they do more then play down their looks... they actually sabotage them. Giving them these huge hairdos and I don't know what else. I will be a bit generous with my rating of this movie for the sole reason I did enjoy the outtakes during the end credits as much as I did.

Anyone here ever watch a movie that was so bad that you just weren't in the mood for anymore movies that day? I am trying to fight it... but I think that just happened to me.

Yeah, happened to me a few times. I usually end up turning to videogames.

A garbage movie normally can't put me off that bad. In fact, it might even inspire me to with another one to get over at bad taste in my mouth...

Pete, you're restricting yourself with the marathon now. I agree with Achim and in fact, you need to watch something properly awesome to act as an antidote. Do you own The Godfather? ;)

 :laugh: Nope I don't own The Godfather. And I say this with the fear of being run out of this site. There is no way I would enjoy The Godfather. I cannot think of a single movie about organized crime that I actually liked. I have seen bits and pieces of The Godfather on cable... and even then I didn't like what I saw. So I do not believe that would be the right turn for me right now.  :P

Perhaps you need Sandra Bullock to come to the rescue?  ;)

Don't feel bad Pete...I don't own The Godfather either...and..well...I'm not that interested in seeing it.  I don't tend to like that type of movie either.

Over the weekend I watched the following:

Friday Night: Let Me In
Saturday: The Taking of Pelham One Two Three (Original)
Sunday: Let The Right One In and The Town.

Let Me In and Let the Right One In were both amazing. Seriously fuck Twilight, these are real vampire movies. It's such a beautifully told story.

Pete - I think you and Brit might enjoy Willow. Another one I'm looking forward to your review is Marathon Man.
