This video is excellent. I LOVE 'Aliens' and consider it to be one of my favorite films. I also really enjoy 'Prometheus' and 'Alien Covenant' and while they're riddled with problems, there's plenty of aspects that I love. However, I also really agree with this analysis, the misuse of the creature really did begin with Cameron's 'Aliens'. Scott the other day said that "the beast has almost run out" but I disagree. It's just being misused and I really hope that someday a director who loves the franchise and who really understands what made the alien so special can take over and actually bring the alien back to it's true roots. What does everyone else think of this vid? And do you think that somehow Alien: Covenant, Prometheus etc.. can be retconned? At the time I really didn't have a problem with David being the creator of the Xenomorph and thought it was quite interesting but the more I think of it the more I kind of hate it.
