Watched that Ink movie. Meh

Watched Leaves of Grass with Edward Norton. Different role for him and it was OK. Worth a few laughs.

Rewatching We Need To Talk About Kevin. Such a dark movie.

No, the maintenance guys were just that - ordinary blue collar maintenance engineers, like you'd get on a seabound freight ship these days. The Nostromo space ship is just an ordinary "tug boat in space" and it was absolutely Ridley Scott's intention that the crew be shown as normal working people, rather than the fantastic, attractive space crews of something like Star Wars.

The dialogue in Alien is very realistic and great writing.

In contrast, Prometheus was a multi trillion dollar first expedition into a new galaxy, all funded by Weyland to go where no one had gone before on an utterly ground breaking mission. Hence hiring cowardly, slacker retards seems rather incongruent.

this is a good point. but, "the company," knew exactly what they were doing. why not send the best?

If you presume the company knew about the alien before the whole Nostromo mission set off (which you can debate either way - it seems to have been a very long trip, and would therefore lack urgency, Ash could be a standard introduction of a synthetic).... they did still send the best - by sending Ash.

The rest of the crew were merely there to be bait, and entirely expendable, in fact perhaps preferably so as then there are no less ends.

You've brought up a great point though smile.gif I'm going to look into how long the Nostromo was sailing for as well as the other points smile.gif

How about the stereotypical military idiots in Aliens?

cool beans. good counter points, but for some reason i had the idea, that the company kind of knew what they were dealing with. hence my surprise at the amount of good men they sent. but i certainly would be open to more info.

Yeah, Bill Paxton in particular. That used to get my goat a little too, but then they fit within the whole premise that no one takes the threat seriously except Ripley. The colonial marines would have in fact kicked ass if they'd simply sent a decent commander who surveyed the installation (and it having a nuclear reactor) beforehand.

They could have then had proper tactics, only flame units, things like that. It would have been a much less suspenseful film though.

All of the above is still in contrast to the once in a lifetime, uber mission that is Prometheus and the 'tards that fly in it.
