For all the sh*t alien 3 and resurrection gets , to me minus the beginning of alien 3 , they were far superior films to alien covenant and Prometheus , at least they knew what they wanted to be and stuck to their roots of being and out and out science fiction horror.
These prequels were nothing more than a quick half baked attempt by fox at breathing new life into the franchise, and desperately trying to pull away from the gigersm that had gone before, and personally I think they have failed quite spectacularly. Do away with the prequels and let's close Ripleys story properly! I want to see alien 5 and be scared sh*tless , not walking out of the cinema feeling underwhelmed by a prequel that doesn't know what it wants to be. Oh yeah I forgot the protomorph looked terrible in covenant, and when that's the films selling point there is no wonder the film found itself in trouble. Give neill blomkamp the shot at alien 5. We need a true alien film, that doesn't contradict what's gone before.
