I agree with all these points. The last Alien movie had the Alien character is a passer-by. It also ignores the Alien v/s Predator movies that clearly show Aliens on earth long before the most recent Alien movie and not created by the android as a hybrid.
Movies like this go back to contradict each other so often, you're left with plot holes that are massive.
For example, as much as I like T2, the first movie was specific that the humans had already won the war, the one Terminator was sent back and no others from the future were coming after Reese went through.
This was ignored in all the films after that.

Actually, after I looked at it, it was a Blue-ray. I think we now have 4 or 5 Blue-rays.

Argent11 The Martian, I loved the book but not so much the movie, to much of the story was left out in the movie. After the first two Alien became ridiculous and boring, so has the Terminator movies. I don't know what it's going to take now that the ugly, slimy, monster alien card has just about been worn out.

Movies like Gravity and the Martian did show that audiences were becoming more interested in real
to life situations.

TheMartian? Man, I loved the book and movie, as that’s something you can totallyaccept as possible in 15-20 years (the timeframe part isn’t likely, given thecurrent NASA funding and timetables, but you get my point).
Thefirst two Alien movies, I loved. Each were really pushing the science andplausibility of the genre, but you could watch each and think of that universeas real and someday you could walk into it. Alien was an utter masterpiece ofthe genre because the space ship was believable. It broke ground in sci-fi.
Interstellar?I couldn’t get into it. The premise had plot holes big enough to stuff a planetthrough. I have no idea how people can’t see that.
Ireally liked the re-boot of “Battlestar Galactica” on TV several years ago. Ithad problems and it got really mired into its own plot in the last two seasons,but it’s the only reboot I thought was better than the original.
“DefyingGravity” was a really good show that nobody recalls. Google it. It’s on DVD andI really liked it, though I never saw it on TV. It was marketed as “Grey’sAnatomy in Space” which wasn’t accurate at all and was played late in thenights. I international space agency conducts a several-planet tour of thesolar system, and you later find there’s an ulterior motive for the trip.Flashes back and forth between the ‘now’ of the mission and the training thatled up to it. I’m still disappointed it never made it past the first season.
I loved Star Trek. Star Wars was OK up to a point but has just had too many stories now. The point to me is that it's fiction, not true science, but something that could be possible, maybe. In fact that's the point of all fiction. It tells a story that just might take place whatever the genre. It's something to take your mind away from your ordinary life and let you relax and your imagination run wild for a bit.
