“ 9/10. I don't know yet. It's been a month since I've seen it and it's still dwelling in my mind. 9/10 is just a place holder score. I can't honestly give coherent thoughts until I've seen it a couple of more times. ” - Vaggeli

“ 9/10. The assembly cut of course. A much different film than you're likely to see and a fine early example of the great potential David Fincher had. ” - Vaggeli

“ 8/10. Cheestastic and awesome. An unashamed B 80's style action movie and all the better for it. ” - Vaggeli

Two centuries after her death, Ellen Ripley is revived as a powerful human/alien hybrid clone who must continue her war against the aliens. (109 mins.)
“ 4/10. A half arsed Heavy Metal comic posing as an Alien film. I can't honestly say it would've been better had it not been an Alien film as it's so badly written and directed. Too stupid for it's own good. ” - Vaggeli
 
9.
AVP: Alien vs. Predator (2004)

“ 3/10. How hard was it to make an Alien vs. Predator movie? Take the movie Aliens, the movie Predator and you throw them in a blender. That's all we ever wanted to see. What the hell was this crap? ” - Vaggeli
 
10.
Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.7/10 X  
Warring alien and predator races descend on a rural US town, where unsuspecting residents must band together for any chance of survival. (94 mins.)
“ DUD. Beyond any shadow of a doubt my candidate for the worst film ever made. Two franchises once considered amongst the greatest Sci-Fi, horror and action films of all time, now reduced to a half arsed teen slasher that no one could make heads nor tails of what was happening. ” - Vaggeli
