Feel sorry for all of you science buffs but it was clear to me from the start that Scott did know shit about what he was talking science wise. He's a smart but mostly visual director. Remember what Spaith said about the script, Scott had a basic concept and visuals in his mind, stuff he wanted to shoot, the writer work was create scenes leading to these images.
Scott is driven by the visual, not by the story, nor by the actors.
He's like a thinking Michael Bay, he knows what is shitty script wise and choose top notch actors who know what they do.
How many times we've heard his actors saying he lets you try stuff and such, it just means he give them the basics and let them do their work, since he choose the best he gets the best.
He's one of the great visual storyteller of our time but he's no rocket scientist.
Science was never the point of the ALIEN universe.
It just feels/looks believable and real but it's clear it never was actually.
Discuss these movie with a science angle is fun but pointless you'll only anger yourself more and more lol
5 days to go ^^
