First let me say that’ I’m in the minority of people who really enjoyed Ridley Scott’s Prometheus. You may recall me starting a series of articles reviewing all of the Alien movies, I stopped after the second one but do plan to some day pick it back up. Alien is one of my all time favorite movies, so when I heard that Dark Horse was going to begin doing more comic book stories with the franchise I jumped at the chance. Especially since two of the titles would also tie into Prometheus. The other two were centered around Predator as well as the Aliens Vs. Predator series. That’s not my thing really, so today we are going to focus on both the 4 issue Aliens miniseries as well as the Prometheus one, both subtitled Fire & Stone.
The second installment of Xeno-Phobia has arrived.
Ever since I saw my first entry in the Alien franchise I’ve been obsessed with Xenomorphs. I’m legitimately fascinated by them. Here’s the problem though, I’ve only seen Alien, Aliens and Prometheus. In all honest, I’ve been a little nervous to watch the other two movies…but that’s all about to change. I’ve committed myself to watching all 5 director’s cuts versions of the movies (not including the two Alien Vs. Predator movies) and write an accompanying review for each.
What makes this film series interesting is out of the 5 movies there are 4 different directors. That can’t bode well, but that’s exactly what I’m here to find out. I’ll be exploring the depths of the Weyland Corporation, Xenomorphs, outer space and the genre of Sci-Fi and how it’s evolved within the franchise as well as throughout the time period they were made (1979-2012).
Once this through the other Evil Geeks are going to have peel my off our leather couch as my skin is sure to be grafted onto it with an interesting concoction of sweat, booze and Cheetos dust. In the Evil Lair no one can hear you scream. Unless you have the room next to Arthur Harkness and he’s doing research for his Horror Of Horrors article….or at least that’s what he tells us.
Internet prepare yourself.

This is just a reminder that Ridley Scott’s (kind of) prequel to his Sci-Fi masterpiece, Alien comes out on Blu-Ray and DVD tomorrow. Prometheus has left a lot of viewers divided. While I do acknowledge it certainly has flaws it was still vastly enjoyable to me. Above all else it felt good to see a well done Sci-Fi movie again, especially one that looked as good as this one. This of course is all the more reason to buy it on Blu-Ray. Despite your own personal feelings on it, I think we can all at the very least agree upon Michael Fassbender’s excellent performance as David, the android.
The release boasts the usual director commentary, making of featurettes and at least 40 minutes of deleted scenes that will hopefully clear up some things that were left a little hazy. Perhaps it will even give us some more of that sweet, sweet Xenomorph.
