Right. But the makers of AvPR were so concerned with minutiae. Homages in the form of music cues, characters, character names, gore, that they forgot to concentrate on a good story. Amazing.
"Look at how much gore we've got in this one! It'll be like back in the good 'ol days!"
Uh, I don't know who the f**k you think you talking to, but Alien really only has one gory sequence, and Aliens would literally be bloodless if not for the chestburst and Ferro's window swipe.
Those two films were nominated for a combined total of 9 Oscars, so uh, they were doing a little more than dumping buckets of blood on latex costumes in a forest, boys.
