Aliens Vs Predator: Requiem was critically panned in 2007. But at least we've found a few remarkable things to say about it...
Everything gets worse. It's one of the basic, fundamental laws that governs the cosmos.

American pop star Miley Cyrus and eyebrow heavy model Cara Delevingne have planted a photo in the press that has some people saying Cyrus is definitely bisexual, while others think this is all part of the Miley togue wagging machine the singer has eacted since her painful breakup with Liam Hemsworth. The two are seen in a very staged photo in an almost French Kiss (they look like they are shouting into each other's mouths), ostensibly to support gay rights as a rainbow flag is graphically embedded in the snap. Cyrus and Cara Delevingne seem to be making a gay rights statement in the process. "Love!!!!!We finally got the filmed developed Mush," Miley wrote as a caption »
