Quote from: skhellter on Jun 19, 2021, 02:50:39 PMNowadays when i look at weird story ideas in Alien i think back to Blue Marsalis..A lot of these weirder "no that could never work" concepts can be good and compelling in the hands of the right writer, done with the right care, with proper themes and stakes in place. (They could've gotten away with the biomech suit idea too if written well.. and if the final design didn't look like a halloween costume). Was there any actual screenwriter attached to this or was it just Blomkamp going at it alone?

Quote from: T Dog on Jun 27, 2023, 07:31:16 AMI heard a quote recently about Blomkamp via the "No Such Thing As A Bad Movie" podcast, where Blomkamp said that he doesn't like reading books, he just likes things that look cool.It's safe to say this is reflected in his movies.

He did call Denis Villeneuve a "f**king asshole" on twitter for comments Villeneuve made about the MCU (all he said is that they follow a cut and paste formula, based Villeneuve btw 😂), you just don't do that. He tried to save face and claimed he was being sarcastic and that he loves Villeneuve, but he did a similar thing when Covenant was released; saying how chuffed he was for it after some salty tweets. In short, his attitude sucks.

Quote from: Necronomicon II on Jun 27, 2023, 03:07:21 AMWhat was clear to me is that Blomkamp thinks more in terms of video games narrative wise, but not at the level of Dead Space, say. There's a pretentious term for this — Ludonarrative dissonance or consistency, Blomkamp is the former lol Gran Turismo is his next movie, go figure. 😂
