Ridley Scott's Shocking Decision to "Remove" Aliens From the Alien Franchise

I honestly can't grasp the logic behind the recent decision reported by the phenom that is Ridley Scott, the engineer behind the face hugger and chest burster we had known for so long. We're talking about as far back as 1979 when the original "Alien" was released in theaters, heralding a story about survival and humanity at its purest form. And the fact that life, however fierce and deadly it may be, at its core can be visceral, viral, and even unstoppable.

The Aliens Franchise Was About Containing and Saving Life -- in a Lifeless Void of Space

You couldn't beat that kind of tagline back then. First it was a spaceship (the Nostromo), then it was a planet marines landed on to investigate a colony (along with a ton of eggs and aliens to battle). It was then a prison planet. Another spaceship. Another spaceship. And then a planet again!

And let's just go ahead and forget the whole "Predator" crossover thing, although it was cool.

The underlying fact that the entire world we're looking at here kind of revolved around the discovery of "hideous" life makes for a compelling story, and unless Scott has something up his sleeve that at the very least ties into the xenomorph, I have a feeling he might lose a brand -- and, therefore, an audience.

The angle goes that he might tackle AI (artificial intelligence), which as you already know was also a bit of a theme in all of these ALIEN movies. Not a main theme, however -- but a recurring one. I'm concerned that it won't be enough at all, and we need at least something that has some kind of connection with the xenomorph that makes this entire world relevant, resonating with an audience.

So Here's an Idea: Let's Investigate the ENGINEERS so Mysteriously Introduced in PROMETHEUS

And with that rich history, and that ominous "black goo" responsible for the advent of the xenomorph.... We have a possibility for something else. Something new. Sure, Scott, we can explore AI deeper (although it's been done before), but let's not lose that rich mythology you've built, please! What do you guys think?

Why THE FACULTY Has so Much in Common With Body Snatchers and Pink Floyd

The Faculty took the idea of the invasion and simply localized it. Instead of a planet -- everyone is in danger, no discrimination, nothing to signify what these aliens want or are looking for -- the alien(s) instead focused their effect on just those few teachers. Now there's an interesting high concept.

The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.

'It Follows': Not Just a Cautionary Tale About Casual Sex

And in all its basic-ness, you'd be shocked to realize that it's not just a linear-type film with one main idea. There are actually a ton of deep meanings behind all of the frames, the shots, the sequences, the scenes. With obviously the underlying principle, the whole point of it: meaningless sex is bad!
