Let’s play a little game

I was in the car with my coworker sometime recently and we began talking about the subject of movies. Someone began talking about the upcoming film Aliens vs. Predator, and I commented that I really expected it to suck. Then I began thinking about it, and it really is completely doomed to suck:

So there you have it. AvP is going to BLOW. It is a doomed film, and the more I think about it the more doomed it gets.

  1. Hellboy: Best comic book movie ever. And what about The Crow?

    Tank Girl: Ugh. Sorry, but IMHO UGH.

    I don’t believe the good-to-suck ratio you’ve presented is an accurate representation of the genre. Proof: for every one “Halloween…” I’m not saying I won’t cringe upon hearing casting news such as Samuel L. Jackson portraying The Saint Of Killers, but comic book films will persevere- so long as they are directed by true fans of the subject material (Hellboy) and not by scriptwriters of “Armageddon” turned directors (“The Punisher.”)

    Right now I am realy excited for “Sin City.” Robert Rodriguez. Frank Miller.

    And I actually liked “Predator 2.” Critics who say Danny Glover is no Ah-Nuld is right- Danny can act. I never thought that the first film was all that impressive anyway. Just a slasher flick crossed with “Rambo.” (Worse, your sterner horror critics like John McCarty blow off the original “Alien” as nothing but a glossy big-budget splatter flick. I love the first film, but I see where he’s coming from.)

    Come to think about it, “Rambo” is just a splatter flick with guns. Cheerleaders/Russians wander alone through the woods/rainforest and get picked off one by one by a deranged lunatic/All-American Hero.

      I don’t understand this sentence. :)

      And John McCarty can suck it, Alien is an amazing film. I didn’t see Hellboy…

      1. Um, hmmm… Damn. You weren’t supposed to understand it. I was being all highbrow, you see. Blinding you with my thesaurus, ha ha.

        Didn’t work.

        Ugh.

        …What WAS I saying? Shit.
