    Septemburst (Part VI): Alien V Predator and AVP: Requiem (The Drunkest Episode Since Episode 83)

    Septemburst (Part VI): Alien V Predator and AVP: Requiem (The Drunkest Episode Since Episode 83)

    Well we've done it, but at what cost?
    This episode covers the two films in the quite frankly very bad AVP franchise - 'Alien V Predator', and 'AVP: Requiem' and as is tradition, it's a drinking game doozy.
    Alien vs. Predator (also known as AVP: Alien vs. Predator) is a 2004 science fiction action film written and directed by Paul W. S. Anderson, and starring Sanaa Lathan, Raoul Bova, Lance Henriksen and Ewen Bremner. It is the first film installment of the Alien vs. Predator franchise, adapting a crossover bringing together the eponymous creatures of the Alien and Predator series, a concept which originated in a 1989 comic book. Anderson wrote the story together with the creators of the Alien franchise, Dan O'Bannon and Ronald Shusett, and Anderson and Shane Salerno adapted the story into a screenplay. Their writing was influenced by Aztec mythology, the comic book series, and the writings of Erich von Däniken. In the film, scientists are caught in the crossfire of an ancient battle between Aliens and Predators as they attempt to escape a bygone pyramid.
    Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (also known as AVPR: Aliens vs. Predator – Requiem) is a 2007 American science fiction action film directed by the Brothers Strause (Colin and Greg Strause) in their directorial debut and written by Shane Salerno. The film stars Steven Pasquale, Reiko Aylesworth, John Ortiz, Johnny Lewis, and Ariel Gade. It is a sequel to Alien vs. Predator (2004), and the second and latest installment in the Alien vs. Predator franchise, continuing the crossover between the Alien and Predator franchises.

Meh

Pretty funny at times, but other than that it seems that they give the same ratings over and over again. We get you don’t like praising movies that are generally liked by the mass public, but not every film should be put up to The Godfather- like expectations. Enjoy a movie for once. Or at least be realistic. It’s not just that their giving bad ratings, but their points and arguments never seem to add up to the point where I can’t respect their opinion. That’s just me.
