DARK SHADOWS: REINCARNATION---CW is developing a sequel to the daytime horror tv series described as, “a modern-day continuation of the strange, terrifying, and sexy saga of the Collins family of Collinsport, Maine — a mysterious, influential, publicity-shy group hiding a ghastly secret: For the past 400 years, they’ve lived under a curse that bedevils their blue blood with every imaginable supernatural creature and horror.” The original series ran from 1966-1971.

The Terminator and the Alien series lack the substance for any kind of depth or expanded storytelling possibilities. Both are mere monster movies with monsters chasing dopey humans. It all just reeks of a giant cash grab attempt.

Same goes for The Ten Commandments. I didn't think much of the sequel.

I think the burning question is: Can robots grow beards? Come on, how far can my credulity stretch before it breaks?

The Ten Commandments has even worse source material than that sci fi crap.

I'm guessing your post was made as tongue-in-cheek bait, but I'll bite: They are actually the complete OPPOSITE of that -- seeming superficial genre fare that offer layers upon layers of meaning and depth within the audiovisual universe itself. Especially ALIEN. If you're comfortable with using Google Translate, I touch upon some of those issues in this Norwegian article: https://montages.no/2009/10/alien-1979/ . Or this, in relation to COVENANT: https://montages.no/2017/05/hybrid-og-hybris-i-ridley-scotts-alien-covenant/
