Well, Ridley's Alien prequels absolutely have their passionate fans. Fans are certainly in contention as to whether or not they improved the franchise overall, but the movies certainly generate extensive discussion and add a whole lot to talk about, regardless of which side of the fence you fall on, and to me that is pretty fascinating in and of itself. Love 'em or hate 'em, they really have people talking.
I'm in the minority with Dark Fate, but if you ask me, the worst thing about that movie is Tim Miller's directing. But I see it as an improvement over the non-Cameron movies by a long shot, even if it is ultimately redundant and doesn't add anything of note to the original two films.
If the Thomas Brothers do win here, though, I don't really expect them to actually sit down and write another Predator movie themselves. But if the rights are due to return to them, as per their original contract that they signed, then that is something that absolutely should happen and, thus, they should have the autonomy over their creation to decide how they license it out (or, if they so choose, to sell it outright) and to whom. Hell, for all we know, they might win this and then offer to sell it right back to Disney for a big ol' profit on their end. And if they do, then that's their choice.
