Ridley Scott- "Alien" disscussion Thread

Film flames, episode episodes. Post lifetime is 1 year.

Since I first saw Alien/ Blade Runner as a child, I have been very into the work of Ridley Scott. Really enjoyed Alien Covenant as a follow up to Prometheus (felt they should have left off the Alien and just titled it Covenant imo). Since I blab about Alien the way others do SW, I've decided to make a thread so I could speculate (with other fans if there are any on EB these days) about the plot, timeline and themes/theories of the Alien franchise. I had heard he is doing 5 Alien films starting with Covenant (?), so I feel there will be much to talk about.

I'm a huge fan of Scott's early films.

Very informative article on the original:

It's a great site with more features on Scott, amongst others. I've spent almost as long there as I have on here.

What'd you think of Prometheus/Covenant?
