Only movies are cannon. It's cool to pull ideas from comics and books but films are the end-all-be-all.

yeah and the molting idea was not in previous fllms. How is it any different from non-canon comic stuff, to use an idea like that? Comics and video games are equivalently non-canon, I don't see how its ok to take ideas from one and then regard the other as non-canon.

The extend DVD films are still cannon in my mind.

The aliens need new ideas to survive, I dont understand it. To me its better to come up with new material (bad or good), than continually re-doing the old stuff. If you keep using the old ideas next thing we've got is Rambo 5....etc etc...theres no interest in the movie , because nothing is new.

So why ignore them in favour of this awful regurgitation thing?

We've seen what born queens do in A:R, but what does a lone alpha Alien do to reproduce?

What the one on the Nostromo did in the Directors Cut of Alien.

"alpha"  = redundant.

what are you talking about, there is no molting in any special edition or directors cut of an alien film.

Overall, I don't see how AVP-R is closer to the roots. When they Strausi say this, I think they mean that after ONE, (count it, ONE), PG-13 film, they're going back to being rated-R, (which in this day and age, seems to mean excessive gore and swearing instead of a plot...).

Im just going to have to agree with this statement here 100%. No offense Colin.

No offense taken because none of you have seen the movie so I don't see how anyone can claim we don't have a good plot.

so you need a plot to be rated-r?

Time will tell. All i know is if these speculations are correct from Robotpo, whatever film in any franchise that comes along after this that looks like this will have a hell of a time getting me to actually see to judge. Im just going to skip it. Sucks to be that crew...

Benefit of a doubt tested 1 last time with this film...
