stupid fucking shitty english accent. you know he's going to be a villain or some malign force.

it's so overdone. it's like major hollywood films anticipate that the majority of their audience are dumb as fuck.

I liked the way he said ethically, as if he were subtle but really wasn't.

There's a big problem with the whole David situation.
if he's evli from the start, most liekyl by lacking humanity, it's an overdone cliché and not just from Alien, but from many other hollywood movies. the robot going crazy, we've all seen that happen too many times.
But if he turns out to be good (whilst, lets face it, we all expect him to be evil) it will be old as well, since this was the case in Aliens.

And we all know that we don't want to see him as 'good' throughout the entire movie, that would add nothing to his character. Ridley put himself in quite a shitty position by putting in another android, since most angles to the character have already been done, and the ones still available are boring.

let's be honest the only difference between wanting to see this film and wanting to see a michael bay explosion-fest is that this one's predictable rehashed crap has a thin veneer of sci-fi pretension to it. nothing i have seen in the 'teasers' so far teases anything out of me except for a yawning 'have seen it all before' feeling.

What hollywood movie, no matter how big, is not predictable?
You can guess the rough outline of nearly every movie based on the posters alone.

I don't go to hollywood movies to be blown away by the unexpected turns in the story, great cinematography and solid characters.

ya but this one is named after an ancient greek hero which means it will be sophisticated and mythical and engaging on the same level as homer

Considering the connection with Bilbo here, I see no problem with this.

Well, Weyland was supposed to be a British company, so it would make sense for them to make a robot with a British accent. Though Aliens states Ash was a Hyperdyne model.

Can we give you the Clockwork Orange aversion therapy, with this film as viewing material?

it's called the ludovico technique.

and no. i don't mind the film all that much. i just hate hype-fests like this where everyone gets whipped up into a frenzy by a few teasers for essentially the same safe-territory shit these guys have been doing their whole careers.

The company in Aliens was basically Leyland-Toyota.

At current rates, by the time of Alien, it'll be owned by some Indian company.

I have reaaaaally high hopes on this one. And I trust in Ridley to steer/end the saga in the best possible way.
