I don’t know why people think Neill Blomkamp is anything to write home about. District 9 was fucking TERRIBLE, and I’ve heard nothing good about Elysium, even from Hollywood Commies who it panders to.
Also, for as much as I love the Alien series…it’s dead. I LOVE 1-3 (yes, Alien3 is awesome…I can even argue it’s the best in the series so long as you ignore the ending which breaks cannon) Alien Resurrection was interesting (mostly because the Crew of the Betty were essentially prototype versions of the Crew of the Serenity) but overall a failure, and for as much as I wanted to love Prometheus, it wasn’t good either.
I don’t see why warming over the past scripts will do it any good, certainly not with this communist hack of a director.
Tho in full disclosure, After watching Alien3, I thought the best solution to it’s messed up ending would be to make it a Hyperspace Dream….but honestly Ellen Ripley has seen and done enough, and should be left for dead.
