So what do you want?

A movie with one xenomorph. Something like Alien or Alien 3.
Just give me a movie with multiple xenomorphs.
Xenomorphs are ok. But I also want other variations like neomorphs and deacons.
I want more Engineers, black goo and strange creatures. Xenomorphs and AI optional.

Hell, I think Prometheus would have worked better as a sequel to Alien 3 (or even AR) than a prequel to the entire series.

Someone going to post-Ripley fury 161 or lv426 would be wild. Areas long abandoned by the company, now scavenged.

Hell, even if the story was relatively unchanged it could have still worked.  Peter Weyland needn't have been the founder of the company, but rather a descendant of the founder who sought immortality.

No more conflict with AvP either.

AVP gone = good, but regardless- correct.

After that pathetic display he put on in front of the engineer, I don't care what they do with weyland. Write him out, change his history, his hair, make him heir to the crispy cream dynasty. As long as he's not integral to the story anymore.

Name the company after Buck Weyland. A philanthropic country music star.

Peter Weyland's radical.

Top tier, TED Talk and the Prologue!

Prometheus? The script's garbage,
the Peter Weyland Prometheus version's garbage.
Wow, astonished.

How about if Peter Weyland wasn't really old, just afflicted with Methuselah Syndrome (as a nod to Blade Runner)?

True.  Of course, they didn't have to cast Theron in the role.  They could have gone with someone closer to Weaver's age in the original Alien.

Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Guy Pearce, Sean Harris, Rafe Spall...

I want a movie that doesn't need a sequel.

The problem is the idea of sequels.

The alien films each stood on their own.

You go into it needing to do sequels, and suddenly you have characters you can't kill, places you can't go, stuff you can't show, ideas you can't explore fully, etc. You have to add just enough and leave everything hanging. That's a bad formula.

David's arc and the introduction of the alien should've been finished in Prometheus. Now it's stuck in limbo, and we've got several hours of "wing it". Scott should've gone all in on Prometheus. The budget and public interest was there.

Pure waste.
