& Ridley Scott thought Prometheus' Blade Runner's equal.

The absolute mad lad. Did Ridley ever compared Prometheus to ALIEN?

I don't believe so, said something along the lines of "You don't need to wait forty years to write about this one, it's all here."

Reddit is mostly utter shite honestly. Although I do think Alien 3 is pretty good. But a flawed masterpiece? Eh, I dunno.

I've found there are a couple of basic peeps, Sin_Researcher's a brain-dead Donald Trump
fanatic that makes the five same post over and over. But I think the majority's aight,
often your mileage will vary depending upon what day you login.

I don't see how it's a masterpiece by any measure or with any qualifier.

I don't think it's a masterpiece either, but then- the only one in the series I would award that title to is Alien,
both Aliens and Alien³ are just excellent flawed films.

ALIENS flawed? I can see maybe in regards to the creature, as I thought it was shown better in ALIEN.

And y'know, the whole comedy of errors, endless Newt screams, the Gateway nightmare makes me roll my eyes everytime I have to sit through it. And just generally I have a distaste for what I would call Cameronisms, such as the whole family unit stuff. Ripley not being torn in half when the Queen's got a hold of her leg, an easy fix if the Queen was holding onto the ladder instead and tore away a portion of it falling into space.

Q
I think the first two films are masterpieces

I enjoy Alien3 but consider it a terribly flawed film. I think the film had potential to be something truly great. Unfortunately it's too much of a mess to consider it a classic or a masterpiece. I rank Alien3, Covenant, and Prometheus all about the same, good but not great.

Alien is on another level though, the best of the series.

I believe Alien³ had more potential, but not nearly the amount Prometheus squandered.
