Alien Movies and Prometheus



  • I am a huge fan of the original ALIEN and ALIENS. ALIEN3 has some amazing visuals and the ASSEMBLY CUT added a lot of subtext to the film but ultimately, it was doomed by a poor plot. ALIEN RESURRECTION was just goofy and unnecessary but not without it's moments. And I have to admit...ALIEN VS. PREDATOR (the first one) was a supreme guilty pleasure and a ton of fun.

    Which bring me to Prometheus. As flawed as that movie was, I do appreciate SOME backstory to ALIEN and the visuals of the film were awesome. It is too bad the writing was so flawed. And while this DOES get a little "nitpicky", this video sums the movie and it's flaws up:

    Anyone else like this movie series?

    And by the way, I've mentioned this before in older posts...the game ALIEN: Isolation is superb and is basically Alien 1.5. 🙂



  • I'm a fan and looking forward to the completion of the Prometheus trilogy.

    I recently re-watched Prometheus...still scratching my head at a lot of things but I don't hate it...and I hope the next 2 films answer a lot of questions...

    I do like how Shaw's "baby" was sort of a prototype facehugger that in turn gave birth to an "alien" like creature. Not sure if we will see that again in the next one but who knows. Looking forward to that...and this true "Alien 3" that Neil Blomkamp is putting together.
