Jim, have you heard the next Aliens movie will follow "Aliens" and cancel out the third and fourth movies? Blomkamp and Weaver have said so.

I'll wait before I get excited. I've been burned with 2 shit sequels, 2 shit offshoots, and 1 (soon-to-be 2) shit prequels.

Fincher, Jeunet and Scott are all great directors, yet made shitty alien films (Scott's shitty one being 'Prometheus')

And I saw the Blomkamp concept art of his pet alien project, which apparently lead to him being hired for 'Alien 5'... it had some terrible terrible concepts in there - the alien helmet/mask Ripley is wearing is one of the dumbest things I've ever seen.

So with all that, and it being 30 years after 'Aliens', I have little hope for success. I'll wait and see what comes out as it moves forward, and will most likely wait to see the actual film until I've heard from a few reliable (like-minded) friends who give it a thumbs up.

Fool me once, shame on you.
Fool me 5 times, I'm a fucking idiot.

I'm a little less enthusiastic than I was 5 minutes ago, because I just read they'll be connecting it to Prometheus.

Jim said...


If true, and its connected to Prometheus, I will not see it.

Randallw said...

Sorry, had to have a technician come over to fix our internet.

I'm sure I read something that led me to think it was connected to Prometheus but I can't track down where it was. Weaver and Blomkamp have sort of backed down now from saying they'd cancel out 3 and 4.

I sort of liked Prometheus, if you don't consider it an Aliens film. They really messed up the monster for the end.
