Geez, first House of 1000 Corpses DC falls to the wayside, now I find out there may not actually be an R rated version of AvP(of course they'll call it unrated).

This movie just has the worst word of mouth reviews. I'll likely rent it.

Average film and obviously they are planning a double dip on this one.

Be interested to see a Director Cut to find out if Paul WS Anderson is more than just a Hack. He seems to blame the studio so lets see what his cut was like so we can make our own minds up.

Well, I presume you have at least been spared the temptation of buying the DVD...I still face that.

Wow, look at all the threadcraps up in here. Sure, there might only be about 2 posts otherwise, but it seems unfair to attack someone who comes in says how much they love the movie and can't wait for the DVD. I mean, it's funny and all, but still. While I have no interest in this DVD (I clicked on the link cuz I'm very bored and have no TV right now) or ever sitting through the movie again (thank God for free passes inside DVDs of better movies), I'm not gonna come into a thread about its release and trash the movie.

Or, ya know, I am.

Opinion != thread crap.

but it seems unfair to attack someone who comes in says how much they love the movie and can't wait for the DVD.
I'm not sure if I'm missing something, but no one really seems to be attacked for showing any interest or enjoyment of the film. Sure the one new member got a "I'm sorry". But that isn't really attacking him other than creating a "zing" worthy responses for the purpose of a general joke and not an attack on that member.

I'm not gonna come into a thread about its release and trash the movie.
But you'll come in a thread to criticise those criticising a movie? Makes you wonder how long this vicious cycle can continue.. don't it?

Wow, never thought I'd see the day when Jackskeleton and I would tussle.

You've obviously missed my entire point though. The "I'm sorry" line we're both referring to? I laughed. It was funny. And oh so true. That doesn't change the fact, however, that this whole thread is littered with what could be considered threadcraps. Maybe it's cuz I was just reading the threadcrapping thread and I'm really bored, but it seems like the purpose of this thread was to discuss the DVD and its extras, not the quality of the movie, therefore negative comments (opinions or not) are threadcraps. You know?

I don't know. It just feels like cuz it's a movie most people disliked (or outright hated), it's not held to the same scrutiny in regards to threadcrapping. I could be wrong though. I didn't mean to ruffle any feathers.

We cool, homedawg.

at current time there isn't any info on what those extras will be. I think the thread is currently doing an ok job at discussing the potential. That being that a lot of people agree that they will wait for a DC because the very few extra scenes that is proposed to be added currently would not make the film any better then they thought it was.

A lot of ill feelings are in the thread, but that is for a reason. The film didn't live up to their expectations and since we are working off of very little info given from the first post, we can only speculate and discuss. I'm not really seeing to much attack or harmful threadcrapping involved really. I could be wrong, but it seems like everyone is voicing their opinions. Just because that opinion is not all around praise for the film doesn't mean that it is an automatic thread crap.

So pretty much we have nothing to go on but our thoughts of the film since we were told that P.W.S.A was planning or hoping to get a Directors Cut with more violence and story that will save the film from what everyone hated and we are left asking about that.

I wouldn't call it a tussle really, just a difference of opinion, which is perfectly fine to be able to discuss. not everything is black and white. Much like not everything is either a thread praise or a thread crap.


Edit: all perspective on how we look at it. As of now, I'm seeing this as clean fun. Guy gets zinged with the "I'm sorry" and it creates laughs. No one is really bashing anyone else other then P.W.S.A, which is always a deserved bash if you ask me.

Why? The movie was horrible and W.S. has ruined the Alien & Predator series!

Anyway, to each his own.
Okay, those are definitely threadcraps, according to this:

One commonly seen threadcrap is someone posting that "___________ is a crappy movie" in a thread dedicated to information about the movie's DVD release. The point of the thread isn't to discuss the quality of the movie, but to discuss the movie's DVD release.
Then again, I'm absolutely guilty of taking this thread off-topic and such. I'm doing the "don't", so to speak.

I seriously lowered my expectations going into the movie and found that I enjoyed what was shown. It's not the best AVP that could have been made but, it's still a hoot to watch anyway. I'm definately picking this up in January.

Please don't be insulting toward other members. If you don't want this, don't buy it... but there's no reason to take this type of attitude toward someone who is interested in this release.

Ah - but I didnt just say "___________ is a crappy movie" (or in this case "AvP is a crappy movie"). I said that no amout of extra footage and directors cut control will save this crappy movie.

Huge diffrence. Worlds apart.

And yet we speak the same language. And both have aliens that have inhabited our planet for centuries before we were born.

Or something to that effect.

I wasn't really paying attention, sorry.

Even though it wasn't a great movie, it needs to be a 2-Disc (like the Quad. discs) with both versions, DTS, Anderson/Lathan/Henriksen/Whyte/Woodruff/Gillis commentary, various documentaries and featurttes on the making of the film, the web featurettes, additional deleted scenes, interviews, screen tests, the scrreenplay, various still galleries and creature designs, web trailers, teasers and trailers, and TV spots, as well as a whole bunch of other great stuff.

Got to say you got me there.

I suppose the other touch and go post looked like they weren't crossing the line and that could make the others seem on that same level of not entirely thread crap.

I guess it's just a matter of presentation and perception of the text.

Well played corn, well played.

Well P.W.S.A. was barking about wanting a DC of it released of it on dvd when confronted with an angry mob at a Q&A about the film. Fox is liking the whole double dipping idea lately. So who really knows if that DC exist or if Fox will do that.

I'm not sure what I'll do. I might have to wait to see what the specs are and if there is a DC announced.

The movie just gave me a strange feeling. There were Aliens.. and there were Predators... but it just didn't FEEL like an Alien or Predator movie.

If the specs are good, I'll probably still buy the damn thing. God, I'm such a DVD slut.
