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?

Yeah not the ideas I found out... 😂 Suitable for a NES game perhaps.

skhellter

my theory on what those ideas are/were....

Spoiler
... a squad of mutant xeno-human-soldiers :laugh:

What 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.  😂

skhellter

so there was a final NES style boss fight.  :laugh:

I 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.

And there's more to it than just his crappy ideas but I can't get into specifics publicly. 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.

skhellter

childish man makes childish stories.

that tracks.

Can someone at least confirm there was a full script for Alien 5 ready to go like Cameron and co claimed or just a 10 page treatment like Scott says?

skhellter

There was a scriptment apparently. (Blend of both, a detailed lengthy treatment with lots of scenes and dialogue).

So Blomkamp joins Cameron and Bay as one of the few people to make one of those.  :laugh:

OMG Then I don't know how the hell anyone at Fox even considered his ideas for an Alien 5 of noteworthiness.

Denis Villeneuve is the man.

Like, I don't like AVP, I hate the concept actually. But I'd take an AVP movie over the ideas Blomkamp was putting out.

The execs don't read books either.

can't help but notice that Necro didn't outright deny my theory so i'll take it as silent confirmation.  ;D

Fox approved Prometheus and Covenant, so...
