It's a combo of the makeup, John being a Senator, and the overly saccharine tone. Cameron was right to cut it in favor of the lines on the highway.

They should've focused in on the background at the end, as a groundskeeper picking up a dog turd, slowly turns to reveal himself as a terminator.

Dun dun - dun dun dun.

I prefer this over another prequel that demystifies the alien and probably a commercial failure. At least Ripley's return could revive the franchise, and then the renewed success will incite other offshoots a la Mandalorian.

I also hope the dream part is not a recton, attempts to erase the past could prove divisive they should instead focus on moving forwards. The dream element is intriguing, Ripley 8 could use dreams to regain full consciousness of her past self (she couldn't remember things properly in Resurrection) and then you have old Ripley personality most people want, but with alien DNA, which could bring inner conflict and character development, and more plot opportunities. There's still some mileage left in the Ripley character, and retconning could take away from that.

And if people really want to see Hicks and Newt again they could bring them back in dreams, or maybe even physically using another sci-fi element, then they can at least give them some closure.

Aw come on. It's no contest. Weyland is worse.



They made him too old. Likie Johnny Knoxville's bad grandpa. He looks grotesque and rubbery. Look at Marlon Brando in The Godfather, make-up by Dick Smith. Masterful!

Q
The intention is that Peter Weyland is pretty well over 100, right?

I get the intention; what they did was not successful imo.

(According to the Weyland Industries Timeline he was born 1990)

Oh, I'm not disagreeing about the execution of the effect at all. I was more so asking to clarify their intentions, myself. :D
