So I am absolutely excited for Prometheus 2 (or whatever they're calling it) but I have to be honest. I really don't want Scott to go down the "aliens created us" route. I see where he's coming from, and while I don't agree with him on the notion of extraterrestrial life, I don't believe it's necessary to bring such grand plot devices into the series in order to progress it. I'll explain.
ALIEN is a fiction, about some unlucky workers in deep space that run into the most impossibly deadly creature ever conceived in science fiction. The whole franchise deals with this fictitious species as a threat to humanity and the story of Ripley in her unwanted quest to destroy them. Prometheus sets out to define the mysterious [Space Jockey] creature seen in ALIEN and where they fit into the plot. Both are nonhuman threats created to pose a challenge to humanity in the events that unfold in their respective films. Why does Sir Ridley Scott, who is known for such incredible films, feel the need to insert these notions of human origins in the Prometheus series? To me, it is a complete distraction to the plot and a pointless argument for the characters.
I really love Ultramorph's comment. I too would love a return to the Giger-eske style of the first film. I feel that ALIEN leaves the most lasting impact out of all 4 (soon 5) films due to literally everything from aesthetic to music score, costume design to set design, literally everything, including the unanswered mysteries of the film. I never felt like "we need to do a reverse flowchart so everything can be explained."
One man's opinion...
