the audio drama is so uneven and cartoonish that it feels like the audio of a late 80's cheap anime OVA.
Newt being played by an older actress 100% leans into that aesthetic.
I like it but... :laugh:

I don’t care really about technical stuff, for me movies are pure entertainment. Anyway I was just taking the piss myself, I wasn’t aiming at anyone really :-) I personally like alien 3 as well bar the finale which I find very confusing with all the running going around. I really like how Ripley evolves from movie one till movie three.
If I watch the first one I need to watch the 2 follow ups as well otherwise it doesn’t feel complete to me. It is hands down my favorite film trilogy.

My definitive favorite is Alien.

I was discussing it with a fellow fan and he used a word for it, “hypnotic.” The film grabs you. No matter how many times ai watch it, I am on the edge of my seat via suspense and totally enthralled. I told my friend that when I watch Alien a transference happens, I feel what the characters feel and I let my imagination transport me aboard the Nostromo and the fear becomes palpable.

People have often asked what Ridley Scott thought of all the other Alien films:

"Alien 1, I'll say was, by far the best. What followed was Jim's. That was okay. The other two were kind of adequate" - Ridley Scott

https://www.avpgalaxy.net/forum/index.php?topic=62557.msg2541974#msg2541974

When he said "the other two were kind of adequate", did he mean Prometheus & Alien: Covenant?



;D
