Ignoring Prometheus right?

To me, at least, the scenario that makes the most sense is the idea of the xenomorphs being a biological weapon that went sideways. It explains the other movies why the Aliens could adapt to their environment, and the existence of the queen.

I haven't seen Prometheus nor did I know it's related to this series.

Interesting idea.Who would have created the xenos as weapons though?The Predators?

But still what was a giant xenomorph looking creature with some human traits doing sitting in a chair looking threw a lense?

I'm pretty sure the space jockey did. As for its looks; what does any creator do? Make something in its own image. The Jockey didn't look like the xenomorph. The xenomorph looks like the Jockey.

Very plausible mate.

But I wonder if the Jockey accepted to sacrifice it's own life for the creation.It was pretty clear it died while ''giving birth'' to a most likly xeno queen.

That would be the wrench in tha idea.

I agree with LittleRed - Alien is the best of them.


This guy on youtube has some really well-made director tributes. Just randomly found one of them today and then had to check out the rest. Great stuff.

Toshiro Mifune should've been Obi-Wan Kenobi.

The Hidden Fortress. You know, the Kurosawa one that Lucas based a New Hope on? The duel with the spears reminded me about Lucas wanting him for the part.

Is Ikiru the one with the old man on a swing? If so I have seen that, years back.
