Faresco (10 out of 10 ) Truly outstanding!
Surpasses the original.
Carmen (2 out of 10 ) Excellent? I was bored to death! Good beginning, interesting context but halfway through the script everything became very repetitive, predictable and melodramatic. What a waste of time.
Rhys (8 out of 10 ) Interesting that this script had nothing to do with the actual finished product, but nonetheless it's a very intriguing script and they should make it into a movie just for the hell of it.
Zac (8 out of 10 ) Good script, better than the movie. I don't think the disappointment over Alien 3 was about it not being more Aliens. No, it was about how the story became myopic. Aliens was all set to grow the setting further into view, to expand the scale of the setting. Alien was about a single ship. Aliens was about a doomed colony. Alien 3 could have been expected to then be about the wider ripples of the encounter, and humanity's reaction. Instead it was claustrophobic again. A prison colony. Everyone's dead. One Xenomorph tearing through a tiny population. More crappy Christ visual analogies. Oh, and Ripley dies, too. This script is good, and Aliens 3 was decent. But neither should have been another Alien franchise movie.
Eric Recchia (4 out of 10 ) Assuming this an early draft, cause it's a mess. Scenes drag on, characters explain what they're thinking without subtlety. Nobody seems to have a defined personality. Is that Ripley? Who says "just a dream" when they think they're in a dream. Nobody talks like that. Takes too long to get to established alien lore. Cool idea. The wooden planet idea doesn't seem too dumb when you see how it's executed. I love the writer's depth of visuals, I like how it expands the scope to Earth without seeing it. Sheep-alien is a little iffy. Will continue to read because it's interesting to think about potential. Definitely not a good screenplay though.
