If you haven't bought the AvP:R DVD that came out on Tuesday yet, I thought I'd mention - there's TWO different versions; make sure you get the right one. The 1-disc version is very bare bones, but the 2-disc Collector's Edition is only about $5 more, and it's the one that comes packed with all the special features and documentaries in stuff (some of which are very cool - I highly recommend the one about the creation of the Predator home planet).

Figured I'd put out the "public service warning" - when I bought my copy at Best Buy, they were almost sold out of the 2-disc version, and I always hate getting stuck with the lame version and then finding out later I bought the wrong one.

Only thing worse was back when you'd accidentally buy the "full frame" DVD instead of the "widescreen" version - thank GOD the studios have pretty much stopped doing THAT! Cool

Well, I think I'll have to wait for the pack for some time. They release movies, books and such something like 2-6 months later after the original release. I'm very excited about the collector's edition. I already have a documentary on making Alien quadrology... It's called the Alien saga or something like that.

I'm not positive, but I heard that AVP:R is supposed to come out in the UK on May 15th, I think. Hopefully you won't have to wait too long!

If it comes out May the 15th in UK, it will take at least 2 months from that to get here.

That happened to me when I bought Transformers. I was pretty sure it was the 2-disc version, too, because it had a nice box thing and everything.......

Laughing

I think eating my own liver would be more horrifying and probably less painful than shitting out an elephant, but when measured against the horror of picking up the new AvP:R dvd and then watching it again, I would rather do both those things at the same time.

I think that would make the experience too pleasureable.

Now we're talking. Although I might be retching too hard to watch the dvd, thus drastically reducing the horror of the situation.

But I thought you said you'd rather do that stuff then watch the movie in the first place...

Stop confusing me!!!

I think I just confused myself. To recap, I would rather eat my own liver with a spoon, while stuffing fava beans and a nice chianti up my nose and shitting out an elephant, than watch the new AvP:R dvd.

Okay, good to know we sorted things out.

Anyway, can't wait for it to release in Holland.

Only if you use a copy of AvP:R to do it.

I don't know why, but the unrated version just seemed much better than the theatrical cut. I left the theater the day it came out with mixed feelings, and now after watching the unrated, I thoroughly believe this movie was very under-rated.

Of course that doesn't excuse the B-movie story-line.

Fuckin'-A I did! Got the unrated virsion too! As far as the movie it self goes, I thought their could've been a tiny bit more Predator action, but other then that it's a cut above the rest!

How does the unrated version differ from the theatrical version? Does it have more gore or is it somehow different? Alternative ending where all the annoying characters die? Oh, damn, That already happened in the theatrical cut.

Me and two of my friends are going to have an alien, predator, avp movie night but I'm not that excited on watching either of the avp movies.

Got the unrated version, and must say I was rather disappointed, I liked the first AVP better, way better than this one....
