“I thought that ‘Alien: Covenant’ was a great ride. It was beautiful. I love Ridley’s films and I love his film making , I love the beauty of the photography, I love the visceral sense that you’re there, that you’re present,” Cameron said.

However, he did go on to elaborate that it wouldn’t have been the kind of movie he would have done:

“It’s not a film that I would have made. I don’t like films where you invest in a character and they get destroyed at the end. I would not have made that film. I can’t comment on where Ridley is going with it but I think he is obviously trying to create a greater universe around it and more backstory with the Engineers and so on. I’ll show up for the next one, absolutely,” Cameron added.

I definitely don't want James Cameron back! Aliens was such a mistake...


ChestbursterMember725 XPAug-11-2017 8:35 PM

I agree with him, it really was a great ride! (Speaking of which, how cool would it be if they made a ride based on Covenant!?)

Unfortunately, Cameron lost the plot in the 90s. He did a great job with Aliens, but he's made nothing of any merit since. Smurfs in Space don't count.

The title of your post should have been the title of the news post on the main blog, but instead they went with something that was misleading and sounded very negative.

loadagain agreed.

"He survived, he’s now in Disneyland in Orlando, and no way am I going back there. How did he end up in Disneyland? I saw him in Disneyland, Jesus Christ!"

@loadagain bingo. Which is why daliens posted this, I'm sure you're aware. Good job. Tired of all the attempts at negativity via propaganda and manipulation. Not fair.
