GeekNights Thursday - The Alien Franchise

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the Alien franchise. While clearly the first two movies are the best the franchise will likely ever have to offer, much like Spiderman it is so iconic to be nearly universally recognized. In the news, Youtube is removing dislike counts, the economy isn't in great shape (in ways you might not even realize), and the Playdate is delayed.

Alien Music breakdown

Michael Crichton DID make a sequel novel to Jurassic Park.
The movie diverges significantly from the book.

I know he wrote a sequel novel. I read it.

What I was saying is that he didn’t write the first one intending for it to be a series from the get-go. He wrote one. Then there was a movie. It was a huge deal, and then that resulted in writing more.
