pretty much sums it up:
I saw it yesterday, the script killed the entire thing.
Definately not worth the $13 I paid to see it, thankfully I didn't blow money on overpriced drinks and popcorn.
Bestbuy, Futureshop and Amazon have a deal that you get a free ticket if you puchase the individual copies of the Alien movies on Blu-ray
so if you if you haven't seen it yet you might want to check that out.
I can't wait to get a 1080p projector, I have enough room for at least a 130" screen so I can finally dump the theatre for good (Except IMAX)
The Hobbit is most likely the last movie I'll see in a theatre.
As a big Aliens fan, loved having another instalment, loved the idea of the story, loved most of the actors, loved the FX's, hated how amateurish it was scripted.

Missed the 3D so saw the regular version yesterday and despite MASSIVE plot holes, character development flaws and some of the most uneven writing to date -I still really enjoyed it! I was going to go into a long rant about the many WTF?'s but really everything that needs to be said has been addressed above.
Edit: One thing that drives me crazy with modern movies is the inexplicable need to emote every scene with melodramatic music. Give the audience some credit - we know it's emotional to die/have friend die/witness the cosmos in 3d etc... The one scene that ended with the female scientists crying only to cut to another scene with her crying made me bust out loud in the theatre. Reminded me of the crying scene from Something About Mary.
