Quote from: Xenomorphine on Sep 03, 2020, 10:37:29 AMQuote from: Ridley ScottHas the Alien, himself; the facehugger, the chestburster, have they all run out of steam?Says the man who's apparently never watched the 'Alien Isolation' adverts.I came to detest the glitch-ridden, AI-cheating gameplay, but there's no doubting the presentation style of that game debunked Scott's frequently aired assumptions.It's like vampires and sharks. Can they be scary? Absolutely, they f**king can. And it won't just be one or two classic films people will revisit which feature them, because there are countless ways in which to portray them with serious impact.Just because the material in which Aliens, Predators and Terminators have appeared, has largely been sub-standard, doesn't mean they can't be elevated back to - or even surpass - their initial few appearances. They need something well-written with competent direction. Nobody can argue the 'Alien' films have lacked for good directors, but good scripts? Good execution? That's something else.And it's no good him declaring, in one breathe, that both 'Prometheus' and 'Covenant' were supposedly going to "scare the shit out of" us, featuring sequences we would allegedly find more disturbing than Lambert's demise, only to immediately reverse course and lament how doing so is somehow impossible.
Quote from: Morse on Sep 03, 2020, 12:45:06 PMEvery time he talks about the franchise my heart sinks a little further. He clearly isn't interested in Alien or we'd have had a proper sequel already.He's had two forgettable attempts at movies without it when we could have put those budgets to actual Alien sequels. That's enough.You know what the franchise doesn't need? An 82 year old director who isn't interested in the Alien.
