At a glance it may seem easy to dismiss Aliens vs. Predator 2. Sandwiched between the classic 1999 game and the 2004 film that finally brought this battle to the big screen, this 2001 shooter is often lost in the shuffle when looking at the crossover series’ impressive history. But make no mistakes – even almost 20 years after its initial release, Aliens vs. Predator … Continue reading Return to LV 1201: Remembering Aliens vs. Predator 2 – ScreenHub Entertainment
Where do we go from here? That seems to be the common question about the Alien series these days. Since its 1979 release, the original has consistently been called one of the greatest science fiction movies ever made.

These days, it’s hard to think of Aliens vs. Predator without rolling your eyes. The title evokes less than pleasant memories of the 2004 film and its abysmal sequel, films that seemed more like B movie fluff than anything else.

Ridley Scott’s Alien prequels have attracted much controversy. Some have praised them as fresh and innovative, while others have criticized them as unrecognizable from the original classic. Longtime fans have nitpicked both Prometheus and Covenant, but nitpicks are often symptomatic of a much larger issue.

It can be easy to say the time for the Alien saga has come and gone. While the success of the first two showed potential for a lucrative series, every film since has proven either divisive or underwhelming, and diminishing box office returns do little to spark confidence. However, it was not three years before the release of Alien: Covenant that the series produced an … Continue reading Why ‘Alien: Isolation’ Is One Of The Best ‘Alien’ Sequels – ScreenHub Entertainment
