The Alien movies

At my first view I appreciated Prometheus for the religious aspect they did put in (which in contrast made a religious friend of mine hate it). But then I started thinking about all the rest and it's just a disappointment.

Plus, if it's a prequel, why they have all those fancy technologies they don't have later on? Blah

While I agree it's annoying, it's also pretty normal.

 

I know everyone will cry about it but look at Star Wars Ep1-3, I would say on the whole the technology was more advanced than the original trilogy, but especially for films which were made a long time ago, their Sci-Fi creations were more conservative than today.

It's pretty tricky because if you are looking at a movie made 3 years ago we can't stop laughing at their technologies. Innovation increase so much these days...

Like Chet mentioned in the VR talk, movies just go for something that looks good on screen, not at the practical implications. Sci-fi is stale atm, imo.

Alien Isolation didn't feel the urge of introducing stuff, and everyone praised it did the retro-fi look. I think they could have done it in Prometheus as well, it would have looked fresher than what they have, which looks like any other movie from 2000 onwards.

I know it's normal, but doesn't make it right, I think it's lazy.
