I would like to see the franchise return to its roots, without any of the previous players. No Ripley, Newt, Hicks, or Bishop. No retconning. Just new people and places. In my opinion, Isolation felt just about right, and was the natural narrative and stylistic direction the films should have followed. The characters were great, the style was spot on, and the alien was scary as hell. And personally, I find the seagson androids far more frightening than David ever could be. It's just my opinion, but Isolation mops the floor with every single movie featuring a xenomorph since Alien 3. It's time to move on from this road to nowhere. We could've explained the derelict by now. We could've seen the fall of the company by now. Had we have gotten something similar to Gibson's Alien 3, there's no telling what kind of money and attention this franchise would be receiving right now.
Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't mind another movie featuring the military engineers, like Prometheus. But look what happened in covenant. If the direction we're headed narratively is going to be devoid of every interesting/intelligent thing and person except David, then it's just not worth the bother. It's nice to know that David can play the flute and kiss himself, but what in heaven's name does that have to do with an Alien movie?
I want engineers, aliens, the whole damn thing.
Ridley should just make the movie he wants too.
In this franchise, I think Ridley does have things his way. And that, may be the problem.
