It's not as if he's alone, the entire rest of the series from ‘Alien: Resurrection’ to ‘vs Predator’ to Ridley Scott's own controversial prequel series haven't come anywhere close to capturing the magic of a simple haunted house movie in space… Or a big, guns a'blazin action movie also in space.

All that and more below!
