Sorry, but when you have Scott saying he had intentions to make a series of films before Prometheus was released, had his next Alien film green lit and Blomkamp gets the Aliens fanboys in a tizz with retrograde sentimentality via Twitter, then Blomkamp only has himself to blame.
I get rather irritated when people moan about Scott supposedly pulling the plug.
I think the path Blomkamp took was in exceptionally bad form. He's also bitterly compounded certain peoples dislike of the direction Prometheus and Covenant have taken. I'm glad he was taken to the side by his ear.
