Info Wanted: Has anyone edited AvP?

Like everything else excreted by Worthless Scum Anderson, this "film" could have been improved by cutting... Anderson's head off.

after seeing it again last night i am convinced that the film can be improved greatly by cuts/trims. Started taking notes...I'll see if anything worthwhile develops

Cutting out the bad parts will result in a movie of only beginning and end credits.

BTW the title of the sequel is

AVP2:Survival of the Shitest!

Everything I have heard about this film makes me sick. It will be the first Alien and/or Predator film I will not see at the theater. I can't believe 20th Century Fox decided to go with this rather than the team up of Cameron and Ridley that they proposed for Alien 5.

Actually, I'm about 80% done on an AvP edit. So far, (IMO) it's a better film, but cannot be made into a good film.

I think the general story of the movie was pretty good. But it was such a soft movie. They should't have turned it into a "suitable for children" movie.
Fez: I am so excited about Star Whores.
Hyde: Fezzy, man, it's Star Wars.

Agreed.

I'd be interested to see what you're planning Antman. I'm playing with some ideas myself but haven't really got anything yet.

I've made more changes than I can be bothered counting, but my main focus has been:

1. Removed all references to Sebastian's idiotic "metric time" watch.
2. Re-ordered events to lengthen the Aliens' gestation time as much as is possible. (Not much to work with, but you do what you can. )
3. Dropped as many of the cringe-worthy lines as possible. I've needed to retain one or two to help with flow, but most have come out without fuss.
4. Take out a lot of jibber-jabber. The characters don't seem to be able to not talk for more than ten seconds, so I've removed a fair bit of non-essential small talk.
5. Altered all Predator-vision shots to be more like the first two Pred films. I did not dig Anderson's Tang-vision.
6. Added the Predator's triple heartbeat to all P.O.V. shots.
7. Re-edited the main fight between 'Scar' and 'Grid' Not a whole lot better, but re-ordered it and removed a bunch of shots that I personally hated.
8. Altered the colour-timing on the whole flick. Those muted grey shadows that turned up a lot gave me the shits.
9. Ummm...[thinking, thinking...]

That's the main stuff I can remember. There's tweaks in every scene of the film, but a lot of it will probably go unnoticed. I'll be doing a detailed list of alterations once the cut is locked.
