......No wonder Predators are armed to the F'ing teeth, living in that
Went back to LV-426 last night at my favorite 3D theater which was surprisingly bright and the clarity during motion seemed even better than before, like they upgraded the projector or something.
3D: Some of the best shots i've seen yet and early on i found myself thinking they're finally getting it right. The problem was though that it was not consistent at all and afterwards i realized most of the really nice shots were depth shots that were appropriate for the scene, but no pop-out. I really think they just need to go to full time pop-out and essentially make something that is physically close to the camera, always physically close to you and let people get used to pop-out touching edges. You can have both, contrary to what brahby said and that is exactly what theater goers have been missing and it would look amazing as long as it was all in focus.
Movie: A must see as far as im concerned. They made some editing or story choices that kind of set the believability of the movie off balance, mainly as far as not explaining where character's sudden changes in emotion came from.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
The sudden determination of the crew to sacrifice themselves despite my imagination that they had been reading comic books off screen the whole time was one of them. Then the goofy attack on the docking bay by one of the guys stuck after the storm i think could have replaced with so many better scenes available due to the awesome setting and story. Then there was the Alien at the end, or was it a Platypus dinosaur? It wasn't a traditional Alien and i think it should have been, since there was bound to be some people in the audience who didn't know this was an Alien, but especially since thats what people love and thats what i wanted to see.

I loved the overall story and the idea that LV-246 is a biological weapons depot and Aliens are essentially a weapon having actually been used to wipe out entire planets is mind boggling, creepy, scary and jaw dropping to think about. The Alien canisters had a sort of military look to them. No wonder Predators are armed to the F'ing teeth in that universe.
