Ughh. Alien's not Spider-Man or some such, where you can reboot it endlessly. It's not the concept that matters as much as the actual, original film. This is like "rebooting" Casablanca.
They've already utterly destroyed Star Wars, to the extent that I have no desire to see this year's installment, or any further installment ever. From what I can tell, there was no creative impulse whatsoever behind the Disney SW restart. It was rather, "We have this property, let's tell some stories now about it that will get butts in seats and shift merchandise." That's it. No narrative urgency, no inspiration, just a mash-up of notions from earlier SW and generic action movie formulas, together with what they imagine fans might think looks cool. Why fans have fallen for it is beyond me.
