They ought to have remained separate franchises - unfortunately, there was cross pollination. I blame Monsanto...
I dont mind the franchises being linked, i just think they ought to have hired a director capable of producing a decent film.

Unfortunately they gave it to Paul WS "How can i shoehorn my wife into this while crapping over an established franchise" Anderson.
You do realise any good director, like Ridley Scott and any decent actors, like Sigourney Weaver, would have had no truck with this crossover no matter how wonderful the fanboys think it might be? It was a pisspoor idea, incredibly badly realised, and anyone with any sense wouldn't mention it in a Ridley Scott thread.
Get over it.

Virtually any idea can work given the right talent behind it and an Alien and Predator crossover could have worked as well. There is nothing intrinsically bad with a universe sharing two alien species. What is lacking and has always been lacking filmwise is anyone being involved having the ability to mesh the two in a logical, well crafted way.

And as for not having the sense to avoid mentioning it in a Ridley Scott thread, i'm so terribly sorry to have offended your delicate sensibilities by mentioning a film you don't like. Perhaps you should go and have a lie down lest someone mention Alien Vs Predator 2.
