Worst Fucking News Ever! Paul WS Anderson to do BUCK ROGERS in 3D! ARGH!!!!

Published at: March 25, 2010, 7:25 a.m. CST by headgeek

Hey folks, Harry here with some pretty horrendous and incredibly depressing news that will take some time to recover from. Now we know that PARADOX is a company that is spending some big money to get some pretty amazing properties. Right now they're making CONAN with a Baywatch guy and Marcus "I love orange" Nispel. Well know they're making BUCK ROGERS with Paul "Worthless Shit" Anderson. This is a director that has continually made shit at a scale that stinks for ages. And yet, I find myself still hoping that this director, whose films I continually dislike - and has only ever moderately distracted me... is now making one of my fave characters of the past... in 3D. Fuck. Seriously - you go with Paul W.S. Anderson? There's dozens of directors that I personally know - that given this property they would go head over heels making it. I'm sure Paul is excited, but he just isn't very fucking talented. He's a goddamn grade-school artist trying to make things for the Louvre. Fuck this news that Mike Fleming broke. Fuck this is sad.

    So, you DONT like him?

    by Weapon M

    So Harry- you don't like Paul W.S. Anderson? Or you kinda do? I'm just clarifying.. I need you to be a lil more up front with how you feel and not be around the bush... :P

  • March 24, 2010, 5:49 p.m. CST

    Shit, I haven't even opened my Greatest American Hero

    Robert Culp died?

    that sucks

    by sokitome

    RIP Mr. Culp Loved your work....P. Anderson(the shitty one) fucking pos stop fucking with genre properties or just die already. OK I can't wish that on anyone...but how boy just go blind and deaf so you can't direct another movie again.

    PWSA Is Great

    by DeathShrike

    Paul WS Anderson is a great pulpy director of totally fun B movies. The unearned hate spewed towards him on this site, is old, unfair, bitter, and outrageous considering the untold hordes of equally talented (or shittier) directors regularly lauded on this site. Take a step back, Harry and take a deep breath. What THE FUCK are you DOING still shitting on this poor fucking Englishman? Because he directed Soldier TWELVE YEARS AGO?

  • I mean shit, if THIS is the fucking alternative! Jesus fucking Christ!!

  • March 24, 2010, 6:11 p.m. CST

    This is fucking terrible news.

    by Hint_of_Smegma

    Oh well. Looks like that webisode series of Buck is the best we can hope for because the movie is going to be a fucking trainwreck.

  • March 24, 2010, 6:14 p.m. CST

    furthermore

    by DeathShrike

    I completely stand behind Shopping, Mortal Kombat, Event Horizon, Alien Vs Predator and Death Race as superior, well-directed, modest, genre films. I even kind of enjoy Resident Evil. While I grant you Soldier is terrible, the idea that the screenplay was a magnificent work of art that Anderson trashed is total horseshit. A weak script from a great screenwriter, plus less than great direction rendered that film completely dull and lifeless, not Paul WS Anderson alone. Even if it was TOTALLY his fault, one film is not worth desecrating the poor dude's name for a DECADE, Harry. A DECADE.

  • March 24, 2010, 6:18 p.m. CST

    The more Harry hates him, the more I like P.W.S.A.!

    by workshed

    I've never been able to take Harry seriously since the Blade II review (I was eating my breakfast at the time and had to spew).

  • March 24, 2010, 6:19 p.m. CST

    They Miscasted The Lead of The New Conan...

    by Media Messiah

    ...now, this??? Paul W.S. Anderson is the worst director working in Hollywood. This company has to be a tax shelter, designed to lose money. They should have casted Vin Diesel as Conan, and they could just about hire any other director and they would be far better than Anderson with respect to finding a director for Buck Rogers.

  • March 24, 2010, 6:24 p.m. CST

    Media Messiah

    by DeathShrike

    "Paul W.S. Anderson is the worst director working in Hollywood." Just looking at the top ten this week: Andy Tennant, director of The Bounty Hunter, Fool's Gold, Hitch and Anna and the King. Fuck your hyperbole.

  • March 24, 2010, 6:24 p.m. CST

    It could've been worse, Harry...

    by Baryonyx

    ...they could've hired Stephen Sommers. Oh, but you liked his crapfest Van Helsing, didn't you?

  • March 24, 2010, 6:24 p.m. CST

    At least it's not Flash Gordon!

    by darthwaz1

    I've always liked him better...and AVP wasn't too bad, I liked the director's cut.

    Anyone who says they like W.S.'s movies

    by MattmanReturns

    is either a liar or an idiot. Some of his movies have interesting concepts and a few good moments, but that's it. None of it holds together. He has no attention span. He blows his load in the first five minutes.

  • March 24, 2010, 6:37 p.m. CST

    Paul WS Anderson is a great director! I'm looking forward

    by Tectonix

    to his version of Buck Rogers!! Best of luck!!

    W.S. makes Michael Bay look like

    by DrunkyMcLush

    a brilliant artist. Fuck you, Anderson for that! Fuck you in the ass!

    What the fuck?

    by OutlawsDelejos

    How did that happen?

  • March 24, 2010, 6:55 p.m. CST

    Ugh

    by SwedishChef

    file this under movies I won't see. Anderson sucks donkey balls.

  • March 24, 2010, 6:56 p.m. CST

    Has anyone under the age of 30 (my age) actually

    by HucksterFinn

    scene Buck Rogers? I've heard of him. In fact, I'm more familiar with Duck Rogers. Get over it Harry. Hollywood raped my childhood hero cartoons when they hired Bay to direct Transformers, and I actually liked the first one a little bit. Deal with it!

  • March 24, 2010, 6:57 p.m. CST

    How does he still find work like this?

    by bubcus

    Okay, Alien vs Predator was mediocre, I actually enjoyed Soldier (for the most part), and I heard Event Horizon was pretty good (never got around to watching it) but still... giving him Buck Rogers? At least he's a much better director than Uwe Boll....

  • March 24, 2010, 7:04 p.m. CST

    Shut the f*** up you sniveling pricks.

    by IwatchMovies

    Resident Evil, Event Horizon were definitely watchable. You dorks are just pissed because you have to wait on the prequel Smurfatar 2.

  • March 24, 2010, 7:08 p.m. CST

    oy ginger, dopey, cunt!

    by dalbatron

    Event Horizon was great... shopping was great. even death race was great in a chewing gum for the eyeballs... Also why the FUCK does every movie in 3d make such a big fucking deal... its like saying ' star wars' IN COLOUR. Its the norm now for event movies to be in 3d... fuck me harry you like that talentless hack Kevin Smith... and as for not liking the princess and the frog.... shame...

  • March 24, 2010, 7:10 p.m. CST

    Never had much nice to say about PARADOX...

    by halsolo

    ...and still don't due to past dealings with them on a production. They're completely focused on making money and more than happy to take the advice of producers to fatten their accounts over the creative individuals around them handling their properties. Its a shame how the Conan franchise petered out the way it did, but no one to blame but themselves. PWS Anderson is a good BUSINESS decision, and it will probably break even and maybe brings in a profit in the end (he always does) but its never going to do AVATAR business, or JOHN CARTER business (that has PIXAR and DISNEY behind it at least). Unless all our grandparents are thrilled by BUCK ROGERS IN 3D! I don't see where the audience is for this. Then again, there's a forth RESIDENT EVIL movie coming out so what do I know. Then again, PANDORUM didn't do squat. Personally, PWS Anderson's always seemed a bit distant and calculating at Cons - he knows his market and how to lead them along just enough to get them in theaters time after time, but has never come off as PASSIONATE. Paradox can rot though.

    Fuck me gently with a chainsaw...

    by StrokerAce

    The problem with this guy is that he takes awesome characters/ideas/properties, and makes them atrociously average. That ain't cool. At ALL.

  • March 24, 2010, 7:18 p.m. CST

    Maybe this will get him away from remaking The Long Good Friday

    by torontoxic

    At least that would be something because him remaking that would be a travesty deserved of the death penalty.

  • March 24, 2010, 7:19 p.m. CST

    Everything is sacred to you Harry?

    by Bandit 37

    "Worst Fucking News Ever"...not really because I don't care about the character. Pixar making a PG-13 John Carter movie was pretty bad news to me. It might be pretty, but it's not what I wanted. I would say P.W.A is "good enough" for Buck Rogers.

  • March 24, 2010, 7:22 p.m. CST

    Worse news would be

    Nic Cage as Buck Rogers

    DeathShrike: yOU oBVIOUSLY wORK fOR tHE gUY

    by Media Messiah

    Paul W.S. Anderson is a bad director, and there isn't a visionary bone in his body. Whether he is the worst director in Hollywood is entirely subjective, and I understand that fully--that said, he is one of the worst, if not the worst, director in the history of Hollywood. However, the thrust of my attack is not on him--rather, my attack is on the production company that miscast the lead of the new Conan, a guy who can't act...and has no real stage charisma, although he tries, miserably so on Stargate: Atlantis, and now they have miscast the director of the new Buck Rogers??? That is already two major strikes to start off their company with; one more and they are out!!!!

  • March 24, 2010, 7:25 p.m. CST

    At least it's not the other Paul Anderson...

    by Flip63Hole

    Fuck him and his crappy milkshakes.

  • March 24, 2010, 7:38 p.m. CST

    Paul 'Worthless Shit 'Anderson...

    by KillaKane

    ...is evidently not so worthless in the eye's of the studio bean counters. Like it or not, he's commercially successful and while not the best shooter out there he's certainly not the worst. Death Race was a hoot imho(not a patch on Corman's mind) and technically, pretty well executed. Give the poor sod a break, and ease off on the invective, or Milla Jovovic will come looking to whoop your ass (or is that the real reason you're persistantly raggin on him?! him ;-)

  • March 24, 2010, 7:41 p.m. CST

    Plenty of worse choices than Anderson

    by palimpsest

    Dominic Sena, Marco Brambilla, David R Ellis, Stephen Hopkins, Renny Harlin, Brett Ratner and so on. And EVENT HORIZON and DEATH RACE are pretty good movies taken all in all.

  • March 24, 2010, 7:42 p.m. CST

    If James Cameron...

    by Bumb48

    an actually good director can't make a good movie in 3D, then what chance does this turd have?

  • March 24, 2010, 8 p.m. CST

    I agree with everything...

    by Yer_Maw

    ...DeathShrike has said here. Except that AVP is shite, obviously. Anderson makes great, entertaining B-movies - since when was Buck Rogers anything other than a 'B' property?

  • March 24, 2010, 8:04 p.m. CST

    James Cawley version?

    by Dasinfogod

    How does this news affect the James Cawley (Star Trek Phase II/New Voyages) production that is already shooting? Best as I can tell, Buck is not in the public domain, so you may have a rights battle on hand. Let Dr. Theopolis magistrate a ruling!

    I will never forgive him...

    by andrew coleman

    AVP could have been done so well on half that fucking budget. Fuck it give me Sommers at least that guy tries to have fun in his movies. Anderson just sucks off the suits and makes a movie they can sell. Palimpsest had a good point though he is better than the choices he listed. I laughed out loud when I read Sena and Ellis's names because I thought "Those guys are horrible".

  • March 24, 2010, 8:33 p.m. CST

  • March 24, 2010, 8:38 p.m. CST

    Buck Rogers is fucking lame ass

    by umbral_shadow_

    so maybe its good material for Worthless Shit. Anderson is a proper geek with zero talent who has somehow become a C grade Hollywood director. To give him his dues he has only ever made genre films and his dubut Shopping was a quirky, brave little film. And when my 14 year old self first saw Event Horizon I thought it was a great flick. Why does it get sooooo much hate?

    I see a lot of sweeping statements that this guy is a 'bad' director, but none of you expert critics offer specific details regarding his directing style. Mortal Kombat conjured memories of the old Sinbad movies, and Event Horizon was a pretty good movie. I am looking forward to seeing who he casts in this. I might even try to compose the score this one myself.

  • March 24, 2010, 9:05 p.m. CST

    Eh, Boll and Roth are the same

    by GhostDad

    The difference is that Boll gets his hands on properties people care about, which brings on the Boll hate. He makes exploitation flicks just like Roth does. Boll has retardedly bad ideas in his movies, but at least they're his wheras Roth rips off of everything else.

    Honestly this is a character I don't know at all

    by Adelai Niska

    I am familiar with Duck Dodgers, but Buck Rogers, never seen anything with him. Sort of like Doc Savage- an old timey character mostly forgetten by everyone for the last 50 years who is now ressurected because studios hate originality.

    Makes R-rated films that feel like PG

    by Wesley Snipes

    I don't have a big problem with PWSA's films. Even Soldier at least had a very compelling and stylish first 20 minutes. His produced films like Pandorum & Resident Evil 2 & 3 are frequently more entertaining than his own work. And he makes cheap films look expensive. However, the one major issue I have with his flicks is that they often feel like R-rated exploitation films that have PG-rated sex & violence. If your films are R-rated anyways and your material is obviously low brow, why not be all you can be and fill your films with the gratuitous carnage & boobage that your audience loves? Why try to be so classy about it?

    by Dirk_The_Amoeba

    I mean what the goony goo goo does this mean? <p> "Well know *now?* they're making BUCK ROGERS with Paul "Worthless Shit" Anderson. This is a director that has continually made shit at a scale that stinks for ages. And yet, I find myself still hoping *hoping for what?* that this director, whose films I continually dislike - and has only ever moderately distracted me... is now making one of my fave characters of the past... in 3D.

    by Ted Striker

    That's right... Nathan Fillion of Serenity/Firefly and Castle fame is the PERFECT Buck Rogers... His Firefly character is compared to Han Solo, a wise cracking space cowboy... I think with the right storyline, plot, and casting (yes, Nathan Fillion!) the movie *could* be good... Of course, if they pass on Nathan as Buck, there's always the role of Flash Gordon.

    Harry that film kicks arse even if it does do a ridiculous rip off of the penultimate scene in Don't Look Now. The one with the freak dwarf lady who is the murderer.

    WS Anderson has the reverse midas touch

    by Nerd Rage

    Everything he touches turns to shit. His work as a director peaked with Event Horizon which only strength is the concept and gets weaker with every repeat viewing. His Mortal Kombat movie is meant for 8 year olds. Even teenagers are embarrassed to watch that shit. His AvP was a complete waste of potential. The predator costumes were obvious and amatuer. The scene were the predator runs side by side with the black chick in slo-mo was a huge "fuck you" to the fans of the original predator. When you're using Death Race to defend a director you know your scraping the bottom of the barrel. Anderson should be barred from any film with a fanbase. He doesn't deserve the opportunity. He weasels his way into every genre movie cause he smells easy money. Opportunistic bitch-whore.

    by ominus

    1.Paul is a great genre director with vision.if you are just a movie lover and not a stupid fanboy you can understand that this is a fact,not an opinion. <p>2.Most of his movies have a visual style that a lot of other genre director can not match. <p>3.Most of his movies are commercially successful.that is valid argument only when you start comparing him with a hack like UWe Boll. <p>4.The only backlash he gets is from the insane fanboys because they are bitching for not making their favorite franchises into the movies they want. <p>5.Unfortunately a lot of geek sites follow this wave of negative in order to comply with the general consensus of the bitching fanboys.See Harry above <p>6.I dont know about you,but personally i have enjoyed most of his movies for what they are.I consider MK the best videogame adaptation ever and EH one of the best,most underrated space horror movies ever made.Even a recent videogame has ripped of his movie. <p>6.He is banging one of the most beautiful women in the world.accept it you pathetic wankers. <p>7.Apart from his talent,he is in personal life a very good person.well at least that is what a lot of people who hate them,say about him after meeting him. <p>8.yes he should stop writing the scripts for his own movies.He is a good director but not a good writer. <p>9.unfortunately he is also a yes man that why studios give him to movie adapt a lot of franchises.thats good for the studios to have a lapdog but unfortunately is bad for the movies themselves and for the reputation of the director. <p>10.fuck you.Paul is one of my fav genre directors at the present time.he may not be the best but at least i enjoy his movies a lot more than trash from hacks like Bay or Ratner or MCG.

    For what its worth, he's consistently been making/producing genre movies that are few and far between these days. Ya, its a shame he's not more talented, but he still makes very watchable movies. At the worst, you can say that everything he does is average, and that's not such a bad thing. I'll take him over somebody like Sommers any day of the week. Also, death race was legitimately awesome. Just an endlessly rewatchable action movie with great all practical stunt work. I'm really surprised with the level of hatred for this guy.

But when you catch these movies again on tv, they're all really great, solid, dark films. </P> <P>Harry, it has to be said, that when you take a dislike to somebody in the movie business, you certainly don't hold back your vitriol at all. In fact, you get pretty dogmatic about it, to the point where you instantly seem to reject decent films before you've even given them a chance.

DEATH RACE was fun in a straight-to-DVD-Van-Damme-type flick, but when you compare it to the original, it's fucking awful. Substituting decent satire for better SFX and stuntwork does NOT make a better movie - and you're an uninformed fucking knuckle-dragging mouthbreather if you think it does.<P> I'll give him MORTAL KOMBAT and EVENT HORIZON. DEATH RACE is okay for a Saturday night with beer and pizza. But the rest of his shit? Godawful. Even Milla can't save the RES EVIL movies.<P> This will suck. How could it not??

    by scifly

    Buck is not just another super-sci-fi-hero...he is the FIRST! It originates the genre and actual science. Flash, Star Wars, Dan Dare, and Star Trek all took directly from Buck Rogers. So in a way, the film may have the burden to reclaim the genre that has been evolved by others characters over the last 80 years. It could just be a one shot reboot OR Buck comes out of retirement and reclaim the title! Oooh the drama! That is why it should be handled by experts.

    I can think of worse news...

    by Deviant Apex

    Seriously Harry, all these years and this is the worst news you can think of? Paul W.S. Anderson may not be a spectacular director, but by far is he the worst. There is absolutely no way anyone on this talkback can say with a straight face that hes the worst director, if you can then you obviously havent seen very many films. Its true that Resident Evil didnt exactly turned out the way Id hoped, but it was still good nontheless. The only problem with his filmmaking style is that he tries to inject too much action into his films. Thats why he was the perfect choice for MK. Anyway, I havent seen whole alot of Buck Rogers, but enough to know the overall theme of the show. Hopefully he can find a balance between good storytelling and his trademark action. Oh, and I love the idea of Nathan Fillion being Buck. Lets hope they go that route.

    Anderson is by no means the worst director out there

    by J.B.M.A.

    But he seems inclined to try out his deeply average talents on scripts close to fanboys hearts.<p>Technically his work is fine, but he does seem to lack any real skill in pacing,tone and script editing. A director on films with the modestly high budgets Anderson now recieves should have the clout to push for the best version of any script he takes on. All his work since Event Horizon suggests that he either has no ability or no will to get this done. Somebody mentioned earlier that the script for Event Horizon is a good one: well, no it isn't. It's a fantastic concept with a highly derivative screenplay that doesn't do it any justice at all. The resultant film is NOT frightening and lifts almost all it's big scares from other, superior films (The Shining, Alien, Hellraiser, and most obviously the 1958 version of The Haunting) and really struggles for atmosphere. If the production design hadn't been so fabulous we wouldn't even be talking about it. His decision to foist the abomination that is AvP onto the world hasn't made him a lot of fans of either of those franchises, and with good reason - it's cheapened both to a staggering degree (and let's face it - the people begging for that kind of crap also think a Darth Vader vs Hulk film would be 'kickass') and given all the fun that could've been had with the Deathrace remake, he chose instead to drop as much sick satire as possible and set the whole thing in a prison.<p>The guy seems to have no judgement whatsoever.

    by bueno_bob

    While I'm not overwhelmingly interested in a new version of Buck Rogers (well, I might be, if it's REALLY exciting), I think Paul Anderson is getting a lot of undue hate. Event Horizon is one of the best sci-fi horror movies ever made, PERIOD, and Mortal Kombat is without a doubt the very best video game to movie adaptation ever filmed to date. On top of that, he took Resident Evil and managed to turn it into a damn good zombie franchise. You can whine incessently about it pissing all over the video game or whatever, but as has been pointed out previously, only a 2 or 3 of ALL the RE games has been worth a crap. Odds are, in Anderson's doing a film, I'm gonna see it and be at least moderately entertained, and that's the best I can ask out of any director these days.

    by TommyGavinsEgo

    Paul WS Anderson is a jobbing director, takes the gigs, brings them in on time and on budget, no real flair of his own, totally workmanlike, purveyor of pretty much B-movies (in budget and execution), slightly slicker than your straight-to-DVD fare, that get a shot at a cinema release because usually they're video game adaps or whatever. <p> <p> He's not a fucking pox on cinema. He's churned out one or two perfectly serviceable and entertaining movies within the last decade, which is two more than some of the over-the-hill one-hit-wonders-from-years-ago, and outright hacks, that continue to get fellated by this site and yourself in particular. <p> <p> Am I glad Anderson's doing Buck Rogers? Fuck no. I want to see Fillion (SOMEONE give that dude a shot - along with Josh Holloway now he's unemployed, those guys are Harrison Fords-in-waiting) as Buck in a mega-budget, Indy/Bond-in-spac e franchise, starting with a kick-ass £250m Summer tentpole. <p> <p> Looks like that ain't happening. <p> <p> Disappointing. But not the WORST FUCKING NEWS IN THE WORLD EVER.

    Resident Evil 1

    by bueno_bob

    I said it earlier, but it bears repeating because Ray Gamma has inspired me: I loved the first movie. Thought it was perfectly entertaining on it's own regards because it didn't try and copy the video game directly, blow for blow (which would most certainly have sucked big time). Bixby Snyder is right..."You, Jill, the Master of Unlocking"...need I say more? RE1 was a lot of fun though, and an (almost) full frontal from Milla? Definite win across the board.

    EXACTLY! That line was horrible. Also, if she was "The Master of Unlocking" why was Barry the one with the lockpick!? The Jill Sandwich also comes to mind...

    Resident Evil 1

    by Ray Gamma

    It was a really serious movie, it took itself seriously within its own 'universe', in the same way that Event Horizon works well too because it took itself seriously. </P> <P>I would put Resident Evil 1 on a par with Romero's original classic "Dead" films, it certainly has the tone of "Day of the Dead (1985 original)", which I personally consider to be the greatest zombie film ever made to date.

    Still haven't gotten any responses

    by BixbySnyder

    About Transporter and Death Race. PG13 or R in America? What are the ratings on the Resident evil flicks over there?

    WTF is Buck Rogers???

    by aDINGOateCLAIRESbaby

    C'mon, I can't be the only one. And yes, I'm out of high school. P.W.S. Anderson can fuck this with his glorious cock for all I care. I hope it hurts.

  • March 25, 2010, 10:24 p.m. CST

    BUCK ROGERS = "things for the Louvre"?!?

    by Mullah Omar

    That is some serious hyperbole. You'd almost get the idea that BUCK ROGERS was some form of quality entertainment. <br> <br> Garbage in, garbage out. I'd rather see PWS Anderson tied up in this shit so he can't spoil a worthwhile property.

  • March 25, 2010, 11:45 p.m. CST

    Again, no Nathan Fillion...

    by Who_Dat_Ninja

    he can't act and he's got a badly corrected hairlip. Nobody wants an ugly, wooden douchebag to play Buck Rogers. He's fine on Castle, let him stay there, where I can roll my eyes at the promos.

    AVP was one of the most disappointing shit

    RE1 was kinda O.K.

    by WINONA_RYDERS_PUSSY_JUICE

    totally fucking vapid and forgettable, but better than a uwe boll flick by a wide margin. part 2 and 3 sucked shit through a straw.

    They got the wrong Paul Andersen for this one. The OTHER one would be better.

  • March 26, 2010, 4:10 a.m. CST

    Thinkin you might be wrong.

    by carraway

    Don't see PT Anderson doing genre stuff, especially "3D" genre stuff, especially "3D"genre stuff w/ a shit property like Buck Rogers. Unless PT Anderson has developed a really, really monster sized coke habit and really needs the money. Sorry, had to get one in for PT Anderson.

  • March 26, 2010, 4:12 a.m. CST

    OOPS

    by carraway

    Sorry wrong Anderson. Yea your right that Anderson is a shit director.

  • March 26, 2010, 4:15 a.m. CST

    However,

    by carraway

    I still stand by my opinion that Buck Rogers is a shit property.

    Harry liked AvP

    by Lost Jarv

    therefore he is *again* a lying fat cunt. <P>Anderson has only made one good film, however- Shopping. The rest of them stink.

    RE1 is shit

    AMNESIA people- the hacks tool of choice. <P>Christ on a moped, I'm having to agree with the fellator of goats here, and I don't like that.

    I will never forgive the man for AVP.

    by NomoredirtyjokespleaseweareYanks

    The Alien franchise was destroyed by this man. He even made a dumbed-down Predator film. I was always dubious on the guy, Event Horizon being your best film does not bode well, and when they gave him AVP I was mortified. Turns out my suspicions were correct as he turned out the dumbest, most predictable film he possibly could.<p> Look... the Predator films are great fun(the first is an action classic) but the Alien films were something else entirely(cept for 4). They went beyond the call and were intelligent, well acted genre films. Now you can argue all you want about part 3(killing off Newt and Hicks seems to be the biggest annoyance) but compared to pap made today is seems like the fucking Godfather. Yes it has it's problems but AVP is trash. Utter fucking trash that makes Alien Resurrection look like a good idea. <p> Anderson defenders can go and get fucked. All you have to say to win this argument is the guy made AVP. Fuck him.

    I'll give Paul Without Substance Anderson this..

    by Stalkeye

    ..atleast his adaptation of RE was more tolerable than Bay's Lameformers. The RE games were never meant to have serious dialogue when compared to the MGS games, as a matter of fact Mikami likened the RE franchise moreso to John Carpenter's films than Romero's.FYI The music from the RE Movie was partially inspired from JC's soundtracks.

    <p>Yes it's true. NOW, go watch Conan, learn what's good in life. Also: Listen to the commentary track for more hilarious stories and statements.</p> <p>"Hahaha! Look at me spanking her butt...I love it!" Bless you Arnold.(No sarcasm, i mean that.)</p>
