So I just found out that there's gonna be a new Alien movie. A prequel to the orginal. I'm all for it. I say WooHoo

And Ridley Scott is to direct it.

He directed the first Alien Film.

Other directors did the other three.

Sounds promising.

It does but I wonder what the hell the story will be like. Maybe Colonial marines encounter them on a colony they were stationed at?

Haven't seen any of the Alien movies, but I've seen AVP, Predator, and MAYBE a bit of the second Alien.

I liked Aliens, not so much Alien though. Aliens 3 (or whatever, why can't you just use numbers?) I didn't think was that great.

Go look at his track record.

Ridley Scot hasn't made that many bad films

And this is from the guy who did Alien, Blade Runner, Gladiator, Kingdom of Heaven and American Gangster.

I think it really depends on the writer more than anything.

Alien was the best one


no run and gunning "hey time to kill alienz guyz" kinda shit.... there was one alien, they had no guns, and the company deemed them expendable over the capture of the alien.

Aliens is one of the best movie sequels in the history of movie sequels.

Both films have their quotes and famous scenes.

THE RIDLEY SCOTT!
The MAN who directed Black Hawk Down! And Blade Runner! And The Andromeda Strain!

I CAN'T WAIT!!!

And yeah, the Alien sequel almost beat the original. What really irks me is now you go back and you think "UGH!" The sound is crappy, and the Alien is CLEARLY a man in a suit.

I hate to say it, but Alien and Aliens is one of the movies most in need of a little digital reimaging.

Sometimes a man in a suit is better than a cgi effect. As you know you know something is there, not a bit of greenscreen.

But sometimes that man in the suit terribly detracts from the rest of the movie, especially when it has been surpassed by it's sequels. Oh, sure, Aliens^3 was a bad sequel (It had its good points) and Aliens Resurrection was ALMOST complete crap*, but the way the NORMAL aliens (Drone/Runner/Chestburster) moved made them seem like monsters, not people in suits.

*The Humalien puppet had a pronounced pubic mound with male/female genetalia. The director blamed it on the guy who made the puppet and did the concepts, claiming "That [crap] was weird, even for a Frenchman". Luckily, it was digitally edited out. Saving grace, just like the Terminators not riding the Moto-terminators in T4:S

Maybe, you will sometimes not get the desired effect with a physical prop, but it much more visceral and fells more authentic.

I have no problem with CGI, but I think a man in a suit would work better, or at least a mixture of the two, with CGI used to create it's movements and a hand puppet for the close up scenes.

The aliens in the first AvP looked good, what is wrong with CGI?

Yeah, Ridley Scott is a GREAT director... and almost everything he makes these days has Russell Crowe in it.

Also Body of Lies.
