Nurglitch: Neomorph?


Well, it's not a xenomorph exactly (more about that here), and it's obviously new, so "new form", or  "neomorph" does fit.

A neomorph would be able to dodge bullets in slow-motion.

What's that you say?  Prometheus was a fine action/horror movie. Not the best of the franchise, but it is hard to capture the freshness of the Alien Cinematic Universe, or any other for that matter, anew.

How do we know it doesn't?  Take a look at the cowgirl picture I posted above.  Olive drab pants, combat boots, we can assume the victim there was probably military of some kind, and probably armed.

I still say they should make a historical Predator film.  Fulfill the promises made in Predator 2 and Predators.

me too. plus i watch alot of the YT videos talking about it and going more in depth about the alien universe as a whole. when you learn all of the other things it makes you see prometheus in a whole different light.

Easily the worst of the franchise.  And not really a good action/horror movie.  I'll watch Alien: Resurrection over Prometheus.  At least A:R is interesting from a "proto-Firefly" standpoint:  It was written by Joss Whedon and you can see a lot of the concepts that he later developed into the Firefly/Serenity Universe in that film.

Prometheus? Doesn't even have that kind of thing going for it.

It looked more like a dead guy getting a face full of alien wing wong, which might have come after the guy got offed by a different alien. So the alien is fast, but fast to get a bit of necroxenophillia.

Calling the species capital-X "Xenomorphs" is no more or less wrong than calling them capital-A "Aliens".

But "Aliens" is not the name of the species, that's just the name of the movie.

That's why I call the movie "Aliens"

Now it all started two Thanksgivings ago... two years ago, on Thanksgiving,
When my squad and I went up to visit the colonists at Hadley's Hope.
But the aliens don't live in the colony, they live in the atmospheric processor nearby the
Colony, in the sub-basement with their queen and a bunch of facehugger eggs.

And livin' in the sub-basement like that, they got a lot of room upstairs
Where the colonists used to work, and havin' all that room (seein' as how they
Cocooned all the colonists), they decided that they didn't have to take out their
Garbage for a long time.

We got up here and found all the garbage in there and we decided that it'd
Be a friendly gesture for us to take the garbage down to the colony dump.

So we took the half-a-ton of garbage, put it in the back of a black M577 armored personnel carrier,
Took smart guns and pulse rifles and implements of destruction, and headed
On toward the colony dump. Well, we got there and there was a big sign and a
Chain across the dump sayin', "This dump is closed on Thanksgiving," and
We'd never heard of a dump closed on Thanksgiving before, and with tears in
Our eyes, we drove off into the sunset lookin' for another place to put the
Garbage.

We didn't find one till we came to a side road, and off the side of the side
Road was another derelict spacecraft, and at the bottom of the spacecraft was
Another pile of garbage. And we decided that one big pile was better than
Two little piles, and rather than pick that one up, we decided to throw
Ours down. That's what we did.

Drove back to the colony, had a Thanksgiving dinner that couldn't be beat,
Went to sleep, and didn't get up until the next morning, when we got a videophone
Call from The Engineer. He said, "Kid, we found your name on a envelope at
The bottom of a half a ton of garbage and I just wanted to know if you had
Any information about it."

And I said, "Yes sir, Engineer, I cannot tell a lie. I put that envelope
Under that garbage." After speakin' to the Engineer for about forty-five minutes on
The videophone, we finally arrived at the truth of the matter and he said
That we had to go down and pick up the garbage, and also had to go down and
Speak to him at the derelict spacecraft. So we got in the black M577 armored personnel carrier
With the smart guns and pulse rifles and sonic electronic ball-breakers and headed on
Toward the derelict spacecraft.

Now, friends, there was only one of two things that the Engineer could've done at
The derelict spacecraft, and the first was that he could've given us a
Medal for bein' so brave and honest on the videophone (which wasn't very
Likely, and we didn't expect it), and the other thing was that he could've
Bawled us out and told us never to be seen drivin' garbage around in the
Vicinity again, which is what we expected.

But when we got to the derelict spacecraft, there was a third possibility
That we hadn't even counted upon, and we was both immediately attacked by facehuggers,
 and I said, "Engineer, I can't pick up the garbage with this here
Facehugger on." He said: "Shut up kid, and get in the back of the spacecraft"........

dittybopper: But "Aliens" is not the name of the species


And neither is "Xenomorphs".  Both are simply what WE call that unnamed fictional species.

The Predators' species isn't named "Predators" but that's what we call them anyway.
 
2017-04-21 04:48:06 PM  
The alien that popped out of the engineer was probably one of the first humanoid aliens.

But that's not what I'm here to tell you about

I'm here to talk about the predators.

They got an island down in the South Atlantic called Bouvetøya, where you 
Walk in, you get injected, inspected, detected, infected, neglected and selected!

Exec: "What have you got for us, Ridley?"

Ridley: "So in this one a space creature attacks a group of unsuspecting idiots."

Exec: "Is there one character who spends most of the time on the ship while wearing a cowboy hat?"

Ridley: "Yes, of course."

Exec: "Does he gets eaten by the space creature?"

Ridley: "Yeah, they all do...except for the female protagonist."

Exce: "By God you've done it again!"

It helps when you write a cohesive story with characters that have believable motivations. Prometheus' story was deeply flawed and the characters were all morons. Ridley Scott lost his edge years ago. I have low expecations for Covenant and the Blade Runner sequel.

Mother told us to land on LV-426, Mr Van Leuwen. We was comin' back from the system of Tinian to Earth. We were delivering space bricks for the grand city hall in New York.  Seven crew landed on the planet. Vessel stayed down for 12 hours.

Didn't see the first alien for about a couple hours. Facehugger 13-incher. You know how you know that in space, Mr. Van Leuwen? You can tell by lookin' from the front to the tail. What we didn't know, was that our diversion to LV-426 was so secret, no distress signal had been sent. They didn't even list us overdue for a week. Very first light, Van Leuwen, aliens come cruisin' by, so we made ourselves some weapons. It was sorta like you see in the calendars, you know the cattle prods like they used to use on cows, and the idea was the alien come to the nearest man, that man he starts proddin' and zappin' and sometimes that alien he go away... but sometimes he wouldn't go away.

Sometimes that alien looks right at ya. Right into your eyes. And the thing about alien is he's got no eyes. No eyes. not even like a doll's eyes. When he comes at ya, he doesn't even seem to be livin'... 'til he bites ya, and those inner jaws on the tongue come out red and then... ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin'. The spaceship turns red, and despite all your proddin' and your flame throwin' those aliens come in and... they rip you to pieces.

You know by the end of that first dawn, lost a 3 men. I don't know how many aliens there were, maybe a thousand. I do know how many men, they averaged six a day. Thursday mornin', Chief, I bumped into a friend of mine, Brett. Baseball player. Engineering technician. I thought he was asleep. I reached over to wake him up. He fell over, down on the deck, he was like a kinda flop. Upended. Well, he'd been bitten in half below the waist.

At noon on the fifth day, I set the self-destruct sequence on the Nostromo's engines.. You know that was the time I was most frightened. Waitin' for my chance to escape in the shuttle. I'll never go back to space again. So, six people landed on LV-426. One woman come out, the aliens took the rest, June the 29th, 1945.

Anyway, I saved Jones the cat.

No it isn't.  A joke is an amusing story intended to produce a light-hearted sensation in the audience, it's not just posting a mispronunciation.
