Avatar water, 2nd of 2 made; 2022
Alien series; '79, '86, '92, '97, '12, '17
Ridley Scott only made the first Alien 1979 before he made Prometheus in 2012 The other Alien movies were done by others. Didn't James Cameron do Aliens?
It worked well (as such) with that one before slipping into the black goop of Hollywood.
Ever ponder the close proximity of the La Brea Tar Pits and Hollywood?

I just watch movies, I don't study who directed, etc.
Actually, I've maybe seen half of the Alien movies.
But someone made the point James Cameron waited x number of years before making sequel to Avatar. I'm pointing out that Ridley Scott waited much longer to make his prequel/sequel, 33 years!
Ridley Scott only made the first Alien 1979 before he made Prometheus in 2015. The other Alien movies were done by others. Didn't Cameron do Aliens?
Aliens was done by Cameron - and IMO a considerably better movie. Alien was just a slasher film in space - the slasher happened to be an Alien.
We're far off the original subject, but to me it's somewhat opposite of what you noted.
Alien was suspenseful, kept you on the edge of your seat. It had class, built to moments better...
Aliens was almost as good overall, yet entirely different, was another fighting, in your face movie.
RT it seems gives both a 98 (surprising to me), I'd go more like 92 and 85 respectively.
