Giger

You know what he's NOT thinking in this photo?
"This is really a helmet on a very human-looking Engineer creature."

Ridley Scott is officially placed into the George Lucas Hall of Fame [for Ruining Great Things].

akkkkkkhahahahhaha!!!

that looks like Ganesha, totally.
i should pray to it.

i have Never liked George Lucas, he reminds me of the type who would throw a pout, take his toys & go home...it took Jamie Kennedy for me to sorta tolerate him, (but still Not as George Lucas the director)
how i ended up with droves of Star Wars figures, i'll Never know..i sold them All tho for $$$$$$$$
i've moved on...i Do NOT like Star Wars at all really, i kinda Hate it Except for Lando Calrissian & Jar Jar, Yep, i Dig Jar Jar, he's so Ridiculous & Everyone HATES him, so i LOVE him even more, he's such a misfit.

i Don't Dig Steven Spielberg at all..he's such a Eff'n Faker!...he's like a shallow shadow of the human spirit, Yet he's a Zillionaire & hardly anyone knows who someone like John Sayles is..whateves.

& as for Ridley, well, he's Very Very Very Self Aware...the one thing that i REALLY respect about him is, how he gave Dan O'Bannon the time of day, how he let him collaborate on Alien with him...cause come on Walter Hill & David Giler wanted to SCREW Dan outta his credit..they wanted to take away his screenwriting credit...what a Bunch of Entitled Bitches!..and you know what, Ridley coulda jumped on the bandwagon & Screwed Dan as well, But he did the Right thing & gave Dan back his dignity....All the other stuff surrounding Ridley i could care less about..at the end of the day, he Wasn't a man bitch, like so many other dudes in Hollywood are..

All of the great prop makers and there visions have been pretty much left behind because of the digital age.
I want to go back to the stone ages when everything was made by hand.

Duel has it's special moments & it influenced the beginning of "Jeepers Creepers", which i absolutely Love.

& i guess, Close Encountes is also Special....but i Don't know SS makes me sad..i just wish he wanted more.
he could be so Much More, instead of a machine... : (


you're right Jay's Shadow!.
& what Really makes me sad is when people make fun of Ray Harryhausen & say his work looks Hokey or Corny.
that is so Mean!!

I tried watching Prometheus again the other night. Had to turn it off about 20 minutes in - the dialogue alone is borderline asinine.

Personally I think the movie is visually gorgeous, and I can appreciate good digital work because it's still the product of design, hard work, and craftsmanship. Just a different route to realizing a vision.

But beyond that the movie is more or less a huge disappointment to myself and most Alien fans I know. :/ Doesn't give me a whole lot of faith about what Scott has in store for Blade Runner.
