On Wednesday, my after work decompression movie was "Alien vs Predator - Requiem", a sloppily written blood and gore festival. It did what I wanted it to do, which was get me out of my head for a while, but it could have been so much better for the same money with a better script. The problem with not wanting to telegraph who lives and who dies in a movie like this is that the alternative is not giving the audience a chance to care about ANY of the characters... And then we have the fact that most of the action sequences were shot in the dark, in the rain. Mood is nice, but it REALLY helps when the audience can tell who is hitting whom...

And the we have this weird bit of ultra-conservative idiocy. The writer seems to feel moral outrage over SOMETHING she thinks is obvious, but I don't get it. Closing schools for lack of funds is a bad thing; closing schools for lack of students, because people are choosing NOT to breed like rabbits, is not. Of course, please note that the writer has added NINE new consumers to the planet...
