I want a new claustrophobic space horror movie like ALIEN with a new life form with a different life cycle - but possibly related to the xenomorph.
Don't get me wrong, I must be one of the biggest fans of the first two Alien movies but by now I know the xenomorph as well as my own mother.
I would love to see a new Alien movie and I couldn't wait to watch PROMETHEUS. I thought: 'Now that is really clever. A prequel to Alien, avoiding all the Alcatraz in space and other irrelevant stuff they threw in the sequels. Now we know why the spaceship crashed on LV-426 and what the space jockey was.
Damn, it was a soapy big guy in a suit and in Covenant robot David created the xenomorph which makes 'Alien' not even 'Alien' to begin with.
He does know how to play the flute however.
But that's not really why I was watching the movie.
Then there was the other Alien 5 movie by Neill Bloomkamp which I'm sure would have been great - but James Cameron pushed Alien towards the action/combat movie and although I loved it I am weary the Bloomkamp movie would mean more combat. It's okay but the thing I loved about ALIEN is that you had a group of truckers in space whom had no idea what they encountered, what they were up against and no idea how to defend themselves. And all was as alien as can be.
I don't need really new, original concepts like an angry plant from Mars.
The concept of encountering a malignant alien life form and all hell breaking loose works fine by me. It's just that I have seen the xenomorph: I think it's difficult to have an unsuspecting astronaut bend over a cocoon and get the 1979 scare again. (unless you never saw Alien)
I'm not saying: get rid of the entire thing'. On the contrary: use the same concept but bring in a life form which is a distant cousin of the xenomorph who by default gets out of bed on the wrong side . Something we haven't seen yet, something even more terrifying.
I would be thrilled to see something which life cycle is completely unknown to me - or the crew who encounters this life form.
That would be the new ALIEN type of movie I would love to watch.
Hey, I would be thrilled to see Sigourney Weaver and Michael Biehn in Alien 5. Would LOVE it.
But these projects... by the time those studios green light it, we're already in the Prometheus times...
