A crew of scientists travel to deep space to investigate the origins of Man. Or something.  There are moments of clarity amid the philosophical fog, along with some top notch horror sequences, but the screenplay is very muddled over all. As with other Ridley Scott films (Blade Runner), “the design is the statement” i.e. they spent years creating the aesthetic, which is really cool, but the rest is up to the viewer to decipher.  Worth checking out.

Way to revive two franchises at once, AVP!  AVP is the MVP of both of franchises.  Well, maybe not the MVP, more like the MIP, most IMPROVED player… and its WNBA, not NBA.  Ir-regard / regardless (but never “irregardless”), it may not be (is definitely not be) the best of the bunch. But it does provide nourishment to those hungry for more aliens and/or predators.  A team of archeologists find an Egyptian pyramid under-ice whilst in the Antarctic.  Within the pyramid, Predators hunt Aliens as a rite of passage sorta thing, and the archeologists are stuck in the middle.  Movie is kinda (exactly) like Alien meets Predator meets ensemble action movie with no one famous and they all get picked off one by one until only the pretty girl and the attractive guy are left, oops.  Watchable.
