Adult content isn't something you can turn on and off like the options menu in Mortal Kombat. A lot of movies use the R-rating that way, but others aren't as shallow. I dunno if Alien 1 would have been the metaphor for rape/aggression it ended up being, if studios were pushing Ridley for a general audience-friendly theatrical release.

Did studio pressure force him to cast Orlando Bloom as the main character in Kingdom of Heaven? I know he fought off execs who wanted him to insert random sex scenes into Gladiator.

Prometheus looks to have potential. At least on wiki, it was said that the movie isn't really supposed to be about Xenomorphs and focus on the background of the space jockey race found in the first Alien movie. I don't really think we'll see much, or any, Xenomorphs... which is fine by me.

Personally, I don't really need to know about the space jockey's origin and backstory. I enjoy a bit of mystique when it comes to something like Alien.

Confession: I am an AVP nerd. Grew up on theses movies (Love the first 3 Alien and first 2 predator films fyi) so you asked the right person.
This is really, really good. If you ever wondered what if Fox made a sequel to Aliens that was completely different from the Prison Planet idea in Alien 3, this is something you need to check out. It follows the adventures of Hicks and Newt (later renammed for continuity reasons to Wilks and Billy, seriously) immediately after the events of LV426. Tons of shit happens from a cult that worships the Alien being responsible for the creature spreading throughout the galaxy, Hicks and Newt go back to LV426, I believe they go to the homeworld (I could be wrong, it's been awhile) , encounter the Space Jockey, the company capturing the Alien and trying to weaponize them.
Great stories, abso-fucking-lutely fucking amazing artwork that blows away most modern comics with some of the best Airbrushed artwork I've ever personally seen in a comic. And gory as hell. If you are a fan of the Alien franchise I would say it's a requirement to read at least the first Omnibus.
From there I recommend: Aliens Omnibus Volume 3 (there's a story exploring the idea of a King Alien being the result of a genetic experiment, and it has one of the best miniseries Labyrinth), Predator Omnibus Volume 1, and AVP Omnibus Volume 1.
The Predator comics tended to be on the bad side and a majority of them wrote the Predator as just an evil alien hunter that kills unarmed humans. Total opposite of the bad ass Anti-Hero with a code of honor from the films.

Just downloaded all the Aliens comics and damn I'm impressed with the quality. I thought the story was gonna be cheesy but it's actually good. I've started with Book One and so far the art has been amazing. Can't believe this is from 20 years ago. Someone needs to adapt this

Hmm which Alien comis in particular are you looking for, I could try and find them for (and PM them to) you.

I think you need to understand the techniques they used in Alien to appreciate the movie more. The whole point of the movie was to not show much of the alien until close to the very end. It kept it mysterious and left it up to the imagination as to what the creature really looked like. Nothing is scarier than something you can't see or understand. Alien is simply genius.

actually it doesnt, it should make you appreciate it even more considering it's actually good. what makes you lose sight is not being inclined to intellectual movie making.

I think his point is that the latter movies in the franchise (and movies in general, for that matter) have done that to people that are younger. What's funny is that I probably didn't watch Alien for the first time until maybe five years ago (I'm 25 now), but I know how much thought and effort was put into a movie like Alien.
