Some nice Cronenbergian imagery during the transition but it's disappointing that the new beast is same as the old beast.

I like it, but as Kane's other son says, it would've been nice in the resulting Alien had looked a little different.

The whole concept always came across as a bit ridiculous in the script, so I think that's about the best we could've hoped for.

There must have been some directive to make the art as bland as humanly possible.

Adaptations can change things, and should have.

Indeed.

I'm not one for shitting on an artist's work, but just imagine if the art looked more like Denis Beauvais' work in Aliens Book 2.  It'd be like night and day, even with relatively little going on storywise.

I'm guessing rushed schedule, judging by their other work.

Can we also agree that it would make a terrible movie if shot? No memorable characters or set pieces and we have almost reached the third act.

I still think the script is better than what we got.

I'm not so sure, I think an adaptation of it could've been though. Unfortunately this isn't the one.

I'm not really so sure. The complete change to the Alien's biology is as wtf as the magic egg.

And that first draft was just ridiculous. It's like a kid who's just seen Aliens and just writes moar of everything without injecting any actual finesse.

Yeah, I'm not as fond of the first draft.  However, given the visual flare of Fincher's Alien 3, just imagine how his version of the Gibson script could have looked.
