Huh?? Did Ridley Scott ever say this somewhere ?Clickity. Go to the Lambert section.
LOL. Well I be dipped in butter! Excuse me, there is a plate of crow waiting for me in my fridge.
This now constitutes the THIRD time that Ridley has flummoxed and flabergasted me.
The first is when I learned he always intended
The second is when I heard about his whole idea with regards to the Space Jockey being a "guy in a suit" concept.
And now I learn that in Ridley's imagination/universe, Lambert's death is due to fright induced heart attack. C'mon...I mean does that actually happen in real life. I mean, I would love to see an official Coroner's report for Cause of Death ==> Severe Fright. Doesn't say much to our Evolutionary adaptation of the "Fight or Flight" response to threats. I don't think Homo sapiens, as a species, would have gotten very far if every time we saw a lion or tiger or bear, we instantly keeled over.
Although, in my half-hearted defense, Ridley's comments (from that site) could be construed as just him being rather "cheeky". I mean it is possible he was being rather "tongue and cheek" with those comments, and that he didn't intend on being taken literally.
I mean, seriously, can't you see him having a little bit of fun, when saying something like this:
In a separate interview with Danny Peary, Scott said: 'You'd probably die before the thing touched you anyway. I mean, you'd have a heart attack, right? You'd turn and see it and last about four seconds before you had a coronary, okay.'
