Arguments make the world go round – that’s a bit of science for you. And on Fridays, it’s best to loosen your bottle-tops, your pants and your jaws, and go full pelt around a topic of contention.

Aliens Vs Predator: Requiem directors return with SFX-soaked alien invasion tale. Not only the worst film of the year, this is possibly one of the worst films to have ever hit cinemas.

You might even begin to think he’s some sort of sadist. This, to be honest, would explain his palpable delight in noisily offing humanity every other film.
