Just a general geek blog - writing, fantasy, comic books, funny things from the internet.
so i’m rewatching alien resurection for the first time in like 10 years and god, i remember it being bad… but’s it’s really really bad, like the cgi is borderline offensive in how shit it is, and yeah… i typically enjoy whedon’s writing but… there’s really no excuse for this… at least it’s not as bad as 3 still
If I remember correctly, Whedon was brought in towards the end to massage the script. So it doesn’t all fall on his head.
You can totally tell it was a dry run for Firefly tho. All the characters are there.
I wonder if there’s a Shadowrun campaign setting based on Repo! The Genetic Opera somewhere. After seeing the movie, it would be a perfect setting for it, only with super organs instead of cyberware. Also, should magic still be allowed, there are massive amounts of bodies practically everywhere around the main city, making it a heaven for necromancers.
Sounds to me like that would be in Europe, centered around Switzerland (known for their high tech cyber and bio augs).
Read Shadows of Europe :)
