ALIEN PREQUEL IN TROUBLE........good!
Prequels, prequels everywhere and no-one's stopped to think.
I can't get across how much prequels/remakes disappoint me, especially when they're attached to films the word classic isn't strong enough to describe (you can also add The Thing but more about that later).
It's directors such as Ridley Scott that you look to for the originality and innovation that will save you from the shlockbuster demons like Michel Bay.
I know prequels/remakes are out and out fan-boy fodder which means guaranteed bank for the hacks making them but as Star Wars has proven, just because you can doesn't mean you should.

Here's the article.
