Quote from: TC on Aug 05, 2021, 05:53:37 PMQuite apart from Noah Hawley's project, I could see a "remix" of the entire feature film series (and even incorporating EU material like Seegson, the Cold Forge, etc) rewritten as a streaming show, pulling Shaw and David, Ripley, the Nostromo, Hadley's Hope and Newt, Fiorina, and the Auriga all into a single, contiguous, saga, not being spread out over a hundred year long narrative the way they currently are. The kernel of the plots would remain, but the characters and details of the storylines would be reimagined, much like Marvel's "Civil War" comic book was reimagined for the Avengers MCU.TC
Quote from: TC on Aug 05, 2021, 05:53:37 PMBut that's rather old fashioned thinking. These days we have home video and streaming with which audiences continue to revisit original films at will. And philosophically, the current storytelling landscape is showing us over and over again that "alternate universe" stories are valid forms of franchise-making, especially when jumping to a different medium.TC

Quote from: SpreadEagleBeagle on Aug 05, 2021, 08:35:31 PMALIEN 3 was the perfect ending of the original Alien saga. They should've just continued with new characters from there on. We would've probably had Alien 5, 6 & 7 by now if it wasn't for A:R. I don't know if that's actually a good or bad thing, but from a sequel perspective A:R made it extremely hard to make a sequel or a prequel to A:R (as in set not that far after A3).

Quote from: Highland on Aug 19, 2021, 12:56:29 PM The Alien took her friends, her family, her new friends, her new family, then her life. I'd say that's a definite loss. It would have been a brilliant installment in a bigger picture, but as the end? It's a no from me.
Quote from: TC on Aug 19, 2021, 12:13:42 PMI think it's supposed to have one of those "mixed fortune" endings; both positive and sad at the same time. Alien 3 has the kind of story that you would normally think this should work well.The trouble is Ripley spends the whole movie feeling depressed and in despair, which makes her end feel less like a heroic sacrifice than an act of suicide. It's kind of hard to cheer for a suicidal person's success at killing themself.TC
