I was able to watch both AvP movies last night and thought i would offer a couple of thoughts. the first time i saw AvP 1 at the movies a few years ago i was disappointed with it. i just didnt like it. watching it again last night i actually enjoyed the movie for some reason. Maybe watching the extended version helped as i didnt see it that way before. anyway i liked it. now the second one, that's another story. i really didnt like most of the movie. in fact i actually thought it was a bore for much of it. what i liked was the end .....the gov't blows up the whole town. Nice. also most, actually i think all but 2 of the cast are killed either by the aliens, the predator or the bomb. the video when comparing both movies was good on one and not so much on the other. surprisingly i thought blacks were much better on the first film then the second. the second movie was just too dark and the black levels just weren't close to being as good as the first. i couldn't get it black enough without losing all details in the image. AvP 1 looked great, no details lost in any scenes that were dark which was most of the movie. sound was amazing for both films. both have a dts hd ma track. my ps3 doesnt decode that yet but wow the rears were fully active throughout and sounds of aliens scurrying had me looking around behind me plenty. subwoofer sheesh, hope you have a good one. anyway liked the first didnt like the second. audio great on both picture better on 1, disappointing on 2.
