    Alien vs Predator killed both franchises.

    Very meh. Trying to glorify a character that’s memorable and famous trait is being an asshole just doesn’t work

    I liked Predators, so for me I had already forgotten the AVP franchise. This movie I guess is the final nail.

    It's just...

    I didn't need to know how Han got his blaster, met Chewwie for the first time, met Lando for the first time won the Falcon and did the Kessel Run. And I certainly didn't need to know that it all happened in a 72 hour window. If it had just been a cool adventure of young Han then maybe it would have been good.

    I was enjoying Predators until Lawrence Fishburn showed up.
    First Pred is a classic I could watch over and over, 2nd one is pretty good and the rest are bad. Don’t get why they feel the need to one up the predator alien, it was perfect in the original.

    The Predator.. I think this is the worst movie I've ever seen.

    The Nun was just dull. The Predator makes you want to punch babies with cancer.

    Still lightyears ahead of the steaming pile of shit known as the Last Jedi.

    "Get to the chopper!"

    Ok, that's where I switched off.

    Sadly, I agree with you. Im at the point where I won't even see it out of curiousity. Sad as both franchises were bloody great once.

    Alien 3 screwed the franchise well before avp. There’s a doco on just how much of a clusterf$*k making it was. Quite astonishing

    Flatliners 2017 remake.
    Wasn’t expecting much but I was liking this for the most part, not great but ghost movies give me the jeebies and this was alright. First 2 acts were quite good and pretty creepy, last act turns to shit.
