what the hell are you talking about ? now darkmoon ? all i said was i have followed this movie long before any of you
i never said anything about i saw it what are you talking about you crazy person XD
Well, 3 weeks to go until the film comes out. Moderately excited to see it, the one person I wish would see it was the late Dan O'Bannon who was the writer of the original script. He also wrote 'Return of the Living Dead' and 'Total Recall'.
Not the greatest writer, but a hard working one. Poor guy passed away in 2009 from Crohn's disease. I know for certain he'd definitely have wanted to be a part of this movie
You know if you read your post and think of Avatar, it makes more sense than you talking about Blade Runner.
I didn't see BR until last year when Spencer recommended it to me because I liked the game Snatcher.
Now just because I have so much anger built up from personal problems I'm going to take it out on you. Why? Because I don't visit this site much any more and I feel like it.
You are seriously one of the dumbest fucking members on this forum. Much like Spencer said, I gave you the benefit of the doubt on some of your post, but you really are so fucking stupid.
"I wasn't talking to you"
No you were talking to EVERYONE because you posted on a fucking PUBLIC forum you dip shit. Seems like a lot of people really don't like your presence here. Fuck, I'm NEVER on here any more and I can already tell you're not well liked here. I don't have a problem with anyone on this forum besides you because you're just so fucking stupid.
Some of your posts just don't make any sense either, I'm not going to dig for the ones because I don't feel like it, but yeah, you're posts just don't make sense 98% of the time.
It's one thing to say you don't like Blade Runner, that's fine actually. I don't care. A lot of people like Batman and I don't like Batman, but at least I give a reasonable reason as to why I don't like Batman instead of just listing off a bunch of bullshit like you do.
Blade Runner has a underlining message in the movie about life, it's part of the reason I like it, but you don't seem to catch any of it because your mind seems to be warped by shit movies like Avatar.
You thought Alien was slow, but you like it. Yet you bitch about Blade Runner being slow and you hated it. Fucking logic, man. Use it.
Terrible acting? Are you fucking kidding me? The acting in Blade Runner is amazing. Harrison Ford is probably one of the best actors alive right now.
As for the music? I don't think the music is bad. However it does fit the movie. Synthesizers are sci fi movies best friends. No doubt about it. I love the things you can do with a synth and like I said, the noises of a synth fit the movie very well. So once again, your opinion is pure 100% grade A Dumb.
I really want to know why you're still here. Seriously. You seem to be the dumbest fucking member on here and there are a lot of dumb members on here.
Your posts of idiocy just blow my fucking mind, and not in a good way either.
You and your post have no effect on my life whatsoever, but reading your posts gives me a headache just because you're so fucking stupid.
I was just thinking about if you were in the debate club in school and your argument to the opposite side would be "BECUZ IT IS STOOPID! IT SUCKS!".
I'm done here.
The proper people have been given their infractions, so let's all just calm down and get back on topic please. No more arguing or more infractions will be handed out.
Well that felt good. See you guys in another few months.
one of the best final character scenes ever, just sayin.
Also it's ridiculous to say I followed a movie/topic whatever before any of you when there is no proof, evidence or fuck all to back it up. How sad this thread has been completely derailed.
Saw the UK 30 advert today, some new footage, can't believe it's just less than 3 weeks, got tickets for the 1st so it cannot come soon enough.
Well, rehunk has taken a brief holiday, and will hopefully calm the hell down now...and so will everyone else.
Pretty pumped for this. I bought Alien and Aliens on blu-ray to get ready for it, watched it on a HD tv and holy shit...Alien looks amazing. I could never appreciate all the brilliant shots and little details until I saw it in this quality. Aliens had always been my favorite of the series, now it's hard to say.
Aliens is one of the best action movies ever, but Alien is just so damn beautiful and I've always been a fan of the ship's retro interior with padded walls and big clunky buttons.
By the way, did Bishop turn anyone else off milk?

"One can only match, move by move, the machinations of fate... and thus defy the tyrannous stars."
Resident Evil - Castlevania - Silent Hill - Onimusha - Tekken
Melted vanilla ice cream too.
O'Bannon was very bitter about Giler and Hill's re-write of his script. They added the Ash android subplot and all the stuff about 'The Company' and he hated it.
Giler and Hill also created Ripley's character.
I think O'Bannon's greatest contribution to the series was introducing Ridley Scott to HR Giger.

You watched the making of featurettes on Youtube a few days ago too, didn't you?
First preview clip is out, and it's of Prometheus landing
The sets and style look fantastic, and there's a distinct 'Alien' vibe from the direction, similar shots.etc.
It's quite a cool notion that O'Bannon came up with the idea when he was broke, unemployed and living on Shussett's sofa. Same with The Terminator. Cameron had the vision of the Terminator walking through fire when he had a nightmare whilst suffering a fever. He then mapped out the film on his dictaphone when he was a truck driver driving through Italy on his own at nights.

I think he deserves credit for all those things existing and coming together in the first place. Because none of those things would've taken form if not for that script. No Ash, Ripley, Weyland, chestbuster or even the shitty spin-off movies. Absolutely nothing.
You take that script out of the equation, and nothing goes down. Regardless what an SOB he was and what he was against. He made that script and everything happened because of it.
So even if he likes it or not, he takes credit for making it happen. Unless he can go back in time and change stuff.
O'Bannon doesn't get enough Credit I think. Problem comes down too that this really was a team effort, but the team didn't want to work together really. Walter Hill even tried to remove O'Bannons credit as a writer and list himself as the sole screenwriter.
O'bannon DID come up with the creature, but he didn't come up with the design.That was all Giger, the chest burster idea came from O'Bannons producer friend Ronald Shusett .
The script had characters written to be either men or women, which worked in its favor because that let Walter Hill have some free reign on his re-write. Ripley was written by O'Bannon and Shusett, and then expanded upon by Walter Hill. Hill was the one who ended up making the call that Ripley was a woman
Dan and Ron got the ball going and created the world, Walter Hill expanded that world by the inclusion of the Weyland-Yutani corporation and Ash the Android(Which O'Bannon and Shusett both agreed was a really great addition) and Ridley Scott and Giger brought the world to life visually.
The problem was really that Walter Hill was a douche about the script really, he hated Sci-fi and didnt like the initial script to begin with, or the characters, or even the characters names. But he was the one who was mostly in charge of the film, I mean fuck everyone who made the film what it was, with the exception of Walter Hill was just treated like awful shit by the studio suits.
It was a team effort but really, Dan O'Bannon, Ronald Shusett, Ridley Scott and Giger were the ones who I felt contributed the most, but Walter Hill is the one who tried to take all the credit for it. Which is a shame because everyone who added to the project was equally important.
Yes, and again all that is obvious. I think with the exception of rehunk88 we are all of above average IQ not to have to point out that without STARBEAST, Alien would not have gotten made. And nor did I say O'Bannon deserves no credit.
STARBEAST is a god awful script, bad dialogue, poor characters, poor pacing etc. It's only redeeming feature was the chestburster scene, which is credited to Ronald Shussett. O'Bannon stated countless times that he had written the first act of his script, which was humans receive a distress call and set down on the planet. They find the ship, then the pyramid, then the Alien. But he was stumped on how the alien life form would get onto the human ship. This was how they came up with the idea of the facehugger and the chestburster.
STARBEAST was name changed to Alien and was originally going to be a Roger Corman b-movie. O'Bannon even did sketches of his vision of the Alien itself which was basically a mass of tentacles akin to something out of The Thing, and the facehugger was a jellyfish.
So to give O'Bannon all the credit, STARBEAST/ALIEN would have been a one-off forgettable b-movie in space, nothing more.
It was only through Hill and Giler's re-writes and changes, Ridley Scott's infamous 'Ridleygrams' that doubled the budget and the design of the Alien itself that set the recipe for success. O'Bannon had previously worked on the cancelled Dune project which was how he knew of H.R. Giger's work. (Interestingly, his design for the Harnokken kingdom has been reused as the pyramid with the skull face in Prometheus.)
@Wrath, O'Bannon hated the Ash idea.
