I have been telling many that AVP-R ain't a bad movie. The above figures proves my point.

Hmmm, I think all the figures tell you is that some people will buy anything in a new format if the titles they really want aren't available. I've done it myself but nothing will tempt me to buy the steaming pile of crud that is AVP:Requiem.

I'm one of the few who loved this movie. I watched the Region-A Unrated version. Not sure how different it is to the theatrical release but I thought it was very violent and gory and best of all fun..

Just watched it, not exactly Godfather Part 2 but then if you are gonna buy any movie with Alien V Predator in the title you shouldn't expect anything else. I thought the picture quality was very good and the sound was superb, even though I had to change the settings on my BD30 to output PCM instead of Bitstream in order to avoid the DTS bomb at 11:50 blowing up my speakers !!
