His recent comments blaming millennials for failure of his last film comes off as a bitter old man.
Well, I still don't really see those comments coming off as bitter but that's just me and I believe his decision to expand more on the universes from his past films was made prior to making those comments.

Of course. I just see him returning to these worse than George Lucas. They made him money early in his career, and unlike George Lucas who really had a reason and purpose for mining his universe, this comes off as suspect imho. He proved he does not need these with The Martian, but he wants to stay relevant by mining these two older properties to make money off of.

I don't agree with that notion at all as in this is coming off as suspect. If anything, he planned on doing a sequel to Blade Runner and a prequel to Alien for a long time before they finally happened and just because he's doing more stuff relating to two of his films doesn't mean he won't continue doing projects outside those two, hence I don't see it as him wanting to stay relevant at all but that's just me.

Well look, I have the 4-disc multi cuts of the original film. I love the film. Took a co-worker to watch the Final Cut when it came our like back in 2007/08.

I personally love film noir, and to add sci-fi I'm all in. Unfortunately we know the film wasn't successful. It was a masterpiece imho, but is really only being seen as that in this era of geek culture. If Ridley is indeed of that culture, then I support his decision to continue these universes (Alien & Blade Runner).

I would love for him to expand it more in the Dick-ian style universe (if possible). Drop hints of the Minority Report, Total Recall worlds.

Who else here is enjoying CN's 30th-anniversary live stream? I can say I'm glad they're showing a balanced mix of classic and newer favorites along with some of the old promos.

Wonder why Courage is a part of Scoobtober even though it's not a part of Scooby's franchise at all. Weird.
Happy birthday Grandma Tucker.
