"AVP Requiem" (Blu-ray)
A ship carrying Predators is taken over by Aliens, and the ship travels to earth where the Aliens begin impregnating humans with their larvae.
Back on theÂ Predators' home planet, they discover that the ship carrying their brethrenÂ has been overrun, soÂ a few of them travel toÂ earth, with the intention of PAYBACK.
This being an Indie film, the humans suffering at theÂ hands of the Predators are teenagers, with, of course, some local police getting involved.
So, while the Aliens are killing teenagers, the Predators are trying toÂ kill the Aliens.
I guess theyÂ call this aÂ threesome.

Once a particular type of monster establishes itself in the history books of filmdom, eventually they all get together. It happened when Frankenstein met the Wolfman, Godzilla had his way withÂ Rodan, and now Alien vs. Predator.
Actually, though I make light with this story, it'sÂ reasonably entertaining. Alien and Predator look the same as they did in their original movies. This cannot be said when Bela Lugosi and Lon Chaney, Jr. both played Frankenstein, following Boris Karloff's orginal portrayal.
At 29 Mbps, the image isÂ about as good as it gets. I just wish theyÂ had not shot so much of it in a dark sewer.Â With that kind of potential, I would have enjoyed theÂ detail that sunlight couldÂ deliver. The audio has a nice spread around the soundstage, to make sure you don't know which end of the room Alien is coming from.
This one has a second disc with the movie in a form that can be uploaded to your video iPod, should you wish to watchÂ Alien babies jump out of someone's chest while you are eating your lunch.
