GREY MATTERS: ALIEN VS. PREDATOR VS. ALIEN VS. PROMETHEUS

For months Twentieth Century Fox has been frothing us up over Sir Ridley Scott’s return to the "Alien" business with "Prometheus." But for me, this is an occasion to not only celebrate the uncelebrated—Paul W.S. Anderson’s fantastic "Alien vs. Predator"—but to see through Scott’s contributions and mourn their horrible legacy.
