they have an alien vision mode on their helmets. 

correction, it's actually called infrared, or likely known as heat vision.
Fixed quote tag though I'm not sure where the quote is from.

If that's about the predators;
'Heat vision' is how they naturally see. They have things on their helmates to sharpen the image they see, a second mode which lets them see the electrical signals the 'aliens' give off, as they don't produce heat, nor need it to survive (or so it seems)
If it's about humans; an infrared camera isn't heat vision...

yeah, and in the second aliens movie the marines use their Infrared on their helmets, but the aliens don't show up. so you can't seen them on Infrared.

Actually the Predators have several modes/filters for their vision system. In the movie Predator 2 the G-men figure our that they can see in infrared, so they try to use UV light, but when they make too much noise the Predator pauses and flips through several filters before stopping on the UV one and proceeds to mince and pure-a the G-men.

In the beginning of AVP-R there is a rack of helmets, I wonder if they all belong to the same redator, of if it is more like a gun-rack for the Garrison?

i think they all belong to the same predator, and that every helmet is for a different kind of hunt.

Yeah, probably. So, can anybody identify what else is on the trophy case in AVP-R. Almost looks like a Protoss guys in the center of the picture...

never saw aliens? well yeah, just like Hudson said in the movie:

" Hey, maybe you haven't been keeping up on current events, but we just got our asses kicked, pal!"

yeah, the aliens pretty much killed almost an entire Squad of SpaceMarines.

And aided them in the creation of the 'Game over, Game over man!' quote that still haunts comedy programs/films...

They're both Aliens right? No doubt about that  :-\ that's why they can't understand each other.

Of course they can't understand eachother. The aliens (xenomorphs) are mindless killing machines with a Hive-mind. the predators are an highly evolved race of intergalactic hunters. The aliens only want to survive, the Predators want to hunt.

Just watched the Unrated version of this movie and it is better. When they cut this movie up to shorten it for the theaters, they destroyed the human character links that explain a lot of their interconnectivity. They also cut a couple key scenes that give the predator any merit as a character as well. There is a little more gore and a few of the fight scenes are a hair longer too. If you have not seen this movie yet, I would recommend getting the unrated version of it. If you have already seen the movie (and liked it even a little bit), it might be worth watching again to see what was intended.

thanks lego, Much sites failed to tell me what you just told me. i was still doubting between the unrated version and the extended combat edition (SE version for short) but now i'll definately get the 2 disc extended combat edition, with 20 minutes of even more of the gore/extraterestrial violence you described! ;)

Officially I purchased the 'Extreme Unrated Set' which has a second disc so that you can load it on an iPod or your PC if you want.

spoiler gripe
One of the things that really annoyed me with the theatrical version was that at the end of AVP1 the Pred ship was huge! In AVP-R it was suddenly tiny. In the extrended version they show the small ship undocking from the large ship (although there is no reason given for this... and one is left to wonder why the huge ship just didn't come back and do the clean-up rescue since FTL travel allowed the 'hero predator' the ability to get to earth in just a few hours. Eh... it a movie :)
