I feel like if Ridley Scott had thought he was creating a universe, they would have been.

He didn't create a universe, he created an anthology series where 4 different directors did their take on Ripley vs. Xenomorph and each of those takes is in a completely different subgenre from the rest. Now he's just making fanfic level backstory that should have been relegated to a chapter of some Alien art book or something. Instead Scott thinks he's making the Silmarillion of the Alien franchise or something because he thinks paying lip service to the ideas of gods and creation is somehow the same as actually having something to say about the subject.

When I say this about Star Wars, people split a fucking lip.

Doesn't mean you're wrong.

I have a lot of the same issues with Rogue One that I have with Alien: Covenant.
