AVP


And after climbing, Pat and I went off to see Aliens Vs. Predator. I went with into it with the two extremes of expectation. That is I had such high hopes from the coolness of the idea, and had a great deal of trepidation that it would be as bad as Freddy Vs. Jason. But I was very happy with the movie.

It took a while for the action to get going (there was a lot of relatively useless set up, but that's to be expected, though they did make you care some for the 'cattle'). Once it got going however I was very happy with the action. And a lot of the special effects were done with puppets as opposed to C.G. so I was very happy with how they turned out. (I always was a bigger fan of the Millenium Falcon than the Republic's super-sleek ships)

The only thing that disappointed me is that the scene with thousands of Aliens charging up a pyramid was a bit of a bait and switch, but I won't explain any further.
