* HilariousInHindsight: in ''AVP 2'', one of the runner alien's growls sounds strikingly like "[[Film/LordOfTheRings Gollum!]]"

** The general opinion people have of Adele Rousseau, with most reviewers stating that she's the only character they liked. So of course she gets facehugged.

Added DiffLines:

** The ''Primal Hunt'' expansion pack caused an interesting variation of these. Everyone was crying out about how "their species" got the shaft when it came to new equipment:
*** Alien players complained that the only addition was allowing Predaliens to headbite, restoring far more health than they were able to with claw attacks. This greatly mitigated Predaliens' "glass cannon" status.
*** Marine players complained that all they got were dual pistols and a 360-degree motion tracker. Dual pistols with AP rounds could be devastating against armored enemies, and the 360-degree motion tracker made it much harder for aliens and cloaked predators to sneak up on them (though these were only available to "Corporate" Marine players).
*** The Predator players complained that their cloaking was now worthless (a faint rainbow shimmer had been added, making cloaked Predators easier to spot), and the only compensation they got was basically a laser SMG. The cloaking effect only made it ''possible'' to spot a cloaked Predator standing still, and the Energy Flechette filled a badly-needed mid-range gap in the Predator arsenal.

Added DiffLines:

* CrossesTheLineTwice: An unsuccessful example in the second film. It was intended to be more of a straight-up horror movie, in line with the previous ''Alien'' films. Unfortunately, they cranked it UpToEleven by giving the Predalien the ability to breed by [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything shoving its fanged tongue down the throats of pregnant women,]] [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil injecting larvae into them,]] [[ArtisticLicenseBiology where they somehow make it to her womb]] [[{{Squick}} and devour her fetus to mature into a snakes nest of chestbursters.]] Crossed the line from scary past disgusting and into nonsensical.

*** Those who hate the movie hate it for the needless gore, the poor lighting, the Aliens non-sensical behaviour and violation of pretty much everything we've ever learned about them, them getting slaughtered by a single Predator, and the glee the movie seems to take in averting InfantImmortality.

* LoveItOrHateIt: While the first film is somewhat well-liked nowadays, the second is ''incredibly'' divisive.

* LoveItOrHateIt: While the first film is somewhat well-liked nowadays, nowadays being merely considered mediocre at worst with fans deriding the lore breaking content (sped up life-cycle for example) the second is ''incredibly'' divisive.still mostly hated, with few fans liking the movie which was even more lore breaking than the first film, adding a competely new life-cycle that was unnecessary.

*FanPreferredPairing: [[InterspeciesRomance Scar/Lex]] is probably the only ship with any significant number of fans to have emerged from the AVP movies. Hell, the producers even said they imagined Scar as a "romantic leading man".

* LoveItOrHateIt: Especially the first film, as the second is almost universally loathed.

* BadassDecay: This has been happening awhile give or take but ''Requiem'' reduced them to cannon fodder, any kills they made where simply RedShirts.

** Is Lex a genuinely interesting black female lead, or a cliched adventure film girl?



* LoveItOrHateIt: Especially the first film, as the second is almost universally loathed.



** [[FinalGirl Lex]] from the first film is especially hated, often being cited as one of the worst characters of both series.

** However, some people liked the greater focus on the monster action and gore.
* SoBadItsGood: For those who don't simply hate both films.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot:
** At one point in ''Requiem'', The Predalien and several facehuggers attack a group of homeless people living in the sewers. One of these people had ''a dog''. In ''Alien 3'', it is revealed that a facehugger impregnating a four-legged animal, such as a dog or an ox, would produce a quadrupedal variation of the Xenomorph known as "The Runner". If one of those facehuggers attached itself to the dog instead of one of the homeless people, we could have had the chance to see ''two'' powerful Xenomorph hybrids in the same movie.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: The alien nicknamed "Grid" (because of the grid pattern on its head caused by a predator's net) has become very popular among people who have seen the 2004 [=AvP=] film because it seems to be an exceptionally intelligent and formidable alien warrior. In its very first appearance, Grid kills ''two'' Predators on its own, immediately establishing itself as a {{Badass}}. It also manages to dodge being blasted by a predator's shoulder-cannon, and it's seen leading other aliens into battle. Even people who didn't like the film admit that Grid was pretty damn cool.
