Most animals retreat from fire....550 Views3 RepliesAdd A Reply
Great line by Ash in Alien, does he suspect that somehow and in someway fire is attached to the Alien through Promeheus which is why he suggests it. Or is he for once telling the truth when he says that most animals are afraid of fire.
What did Ridley say in the interview...."“Fire is our first form of technology,” Scott says, and so by taking fire, the higher being is punished “in perpetuity in a horrible fashion.” Much like the story of the mythological god, Prometheus, who stole fire from Zeus and for his actions was bound to a rock with an eagle eternally devouring his liver.

Thinking...... If Ridley were being cerebral concerning the method of dealing with the Xenomorph. In a pressurized spacecraft projectile weapons would not only present a danger to the atmospheric integrity of the Nostromo, they also create a great deal of recoil in a zero gravity situation which could occur should the spacecraft lose it's artificial gravity for whatever reason. Now imagine when the fusion reactors on the Nostromo went critical if the artificial gravity had been shut off. the terror of floating along corridors having to pull yourself along towards the Narcissus. With todays CGI and film budgets who knows. However, back on point. I hate to think that the most obvious analogies will be brought to life by Ridley in high definition before our eyes. I'm hoping and I'm sure I'm not the only one that he delivers some SMART shocks that even the most hardcore fans didn't see coming. The saddest thing is that I've read some brilliant theories here that would take Prometheus to that lofty plateau of a thinking "sentients" horror film if they appeared in the film. (Crosses fingers and sips campari and soda while watching holovids from the security of a non inertial pilots lounge).
at this point we can assume that ash said that because aliens are NOT very weak to fire ...there are alot of flamethrowers in any of the alien movies but i didint see them very effective ... so we can suppose ash did say that because he had something to say .
It is simple. Has anyone cosindered why we make alcohol. Maybe the Eagle is a synonym for being drunk?
