No titch, no she didn't. :furious:
Don't get her mad or she'll projectile vomit cherry stones at you!titch said:i seem to remember her being a right ejit and that lead the captain to his nasty end.But she is a mere mockery of womanhood compared to ripley.
Be fair, she’s had a hell of a life; pecked as a child (and on her birthday), seen her boyfriend taken over by plants, even Mr Spock turned nasty on her. Then just as she was getting to the age where she could take a step back and relax, she’s abducted by aliens again.But she is a mere mockery of womanhood compared to ripley
To take this point a little further, I think this is one of the reasons that Alien works so well. Yes it' a man in a latex suite, and in the final scene where it gets flushed out and it was a stuntman rather than Bolaji Badejo wearing it, Alien looks a bit stocky. Still though the fact that it was a man in a suite makes it more effective. Because in Alien they took the now at least radical step of having things like actors (like the lovely Veronica Cartwright) and a script, and they had something concrete to react to.What's great about those effects in The Thing was they were real (well, rubber and latex and corn syrup) and done on the set, rather than concocted on a computer as the remake/prequel will doubtlessly do, thus neglecting part of the appeal.

Well she is in Blomkamp's concept art; you can see her donning the Space Jokey helmet here, http://io9.com/neill-blomkamps-secret-alien-movie-looks-so-good-were-f-1677082116Will Ripley be in it again?
I really like Alien 3. At least the 'assembly cut'. Even Alien Res has its moments. I don't think either deserve to be discarded.Now that we can officially get excited about Neill Blomkamp making an Alien film, questions have started being asked about where exactly the District 9 and Chappie filmmaker’s concept fits into the franchise.
Speaking to Sky Movies (via Den Of Geek), Blomkamp and Sigourney Weaver revealed that the film will in fact be rewriting series continuity by ignoring Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection.
“”I want this film to feel like it is literally the genetic sibling of Aliens. So it’s Alien, Aliens, this movie.”
“It’s a Freudian nightmare. That element to me is what is so appealing. To try to put the audience on the edge of their seat, in a traditional ‘monster stalking you in a dark corridor way.”
Weaver added “I would love to take Ripley out of orbiting around in space, and give a proper finish to her story” ...
Problem is, once you bring parallel universes into fiction, then everything portrayed, every journey you share with those characters, essentially becomes meaningless, as you know there are an infinite number of universes in which those same characters have different journeys, some disastrous, some more positive, and some more entertaining with better special effects.Think of it as a parallel universe.
Ah c'mon, just cheer on The Multiverse!Problem is, once you bring parallel universes into fiction, then everything portrayed, every journey you share with those characters, essentially becomes meaningless, as you know there are an infinite number of universes in which those same characters have different journeys, some disastrous, some more positive, and some more entertaining with better special effects.
Just as though I love Michael Moorcocks Multiverse in this Universe, in a multitude of others I assassinated him for thinking it up.Okay, I will in this universe. Just so long as you know that in an infinite number of other universes I'm proper down on the Multiverse.
