When one of the explorers is searching the whaling compound, and walks past a door to a building, there is a shot from within the building, in which the red light from the guy's flare comes through the crack in the door to form a flat vertical beam that's picked up by the dust and snow from inside the room, just like the blue-green scanner from the salvage scene at the beginning of Aliens (1986).

(at around 16 mins) Lex says that the pyramid would be directly underneath the whaling station, but the hole made by the predators is at an angle that would put the pyramid almost 3/4 of a mile away from the whaling station. See more »
If you listen very carefully during the end-credits, you can hear the signature clicking-rasps of the Predators, and the iconic hiss of the Alien Warrior subltly interjected into the musical score. See more »
Not sure why it got such a bad mark from most people
I went into this expecting a horrible movie. From all the reviews that I read I thought it would be HORRIBLE! I've seen many, many worse movies than this.
A previous comment stated the movie went a bit too fast in explaining things and developing the characters. While I can certainly agree on the former, the latter, well, you just know most of the people are going to get wasted so character development isn't that necessary. We came to see Predators hunt and fight with Aliens.
One thing I didn't like was the movie showed the Aliens more powerful than the Predators. I believe the canon shows the Predators are much more powerful than the Aliens. Regardless, I liked this movie.
This movie surprised me because there were many things I didn't expect. Were some scenes over the top? Absolutely, but this is Hollywood and we're talking Aliens V Predator here :) IF you are a fan of these genres you really should give this movie a chance.
