I can't deny that the first two Alien films were incredible.
They were two very different films (myself preferring the second) and both were amazing for 2 very different reasons.
However, in recent films (especially the vs franchise) they Aliens have lost their "horror" element and have become almost like "henchmen thugs" for the protagonists to fight.
So has it gotten so bad that we could be looking at an Aliens movie without any Aliens? Kind of.
In a recent interview with MTV, Aliens star gourney Weaver hints that they could be looking at doing another Ripley movie, but without any Aliens in it. How weird would that be?“We’d have to go back to the drawing board on ,” she said. “Ridley said that right away when we first talked about .” And finally, the quote that’s gotten me mighty curious, “What we’re interested in is taking the character of Ripley and seeing what other science fiction story we can tell about someone who has lived several lives.”
Hmmmm, so my first reaction is this is stupid.
But after thinking about it for a few minutes this could have potential to be a great story.
After all… Ripley is a pretty cool character in and of herself, so maybe there could be a story there to tell. But could a Ripley movie apart from any “Aliens” have any appeal? Would you want to see it?
I think they could make an incredible movie but I think it would bomb.
