Gallery: 8 Once Great Film Franchises That Need To End Now

Another one that I’m going to catch hell for. Don't get me wrong, I love Ridley Scott’s Alien. It’s a great horror sci-fi. I even enjoy James Cameron’s more steroidal Aliens, and David Fincher’s bizarre prison-break Alien 3. But Alien: Resurrection is insane, and not in the good way, and the less said about Prometheus the better (if you count it as part of the series, which some do not). Now Neill Blomkamp, who is not even remotely wowing us with Chappie, wants to do another one that may or may not ret-con some of the others. Really?
