I watched this on pay per view a couple of weeks ago, I had also seen it in the theaters when it came out.
However, I enjoyed it so much on ppv that I watched this movie four times during the period I had it.
Brilliant movie by Mr. Scott. I love it. I hope he considers doing the Alien series again. Normally I am totally opposed to remakes, but if he did them, I would be eager to see it.
Why would they want to destroy what they created? (We were `flying too close to the sun,’ like Icarus?)
i was looking forward to it but unfortunately i don’t think he did as well as he should have. disappointing given the caliber of Scott and how well he did Alien. for example after the gal had the gut surgery, there’s no way she could have been able to move so well and so fast with a few grimaces thrown in here and there, anesthetics or not. muscles do not just work 100% normal when lasered in half and your skin is stapled back together.
all this did was set up another prequel sequel. no big questions answered or even attempted to be answered. and the whole movie spent an awful long time targeting the one crewperson who had a small amount of faith into giving it up - visually, and verbally.
and as i said he isn’t going to do remakes. he’s doing prequels to fill in the story of where the aliens came from and the mystery of the pilot alien from the first movie of the storyline, that he directed. he’s doing backstory. and he’s left himself room to do another sequel prequel.
