[Steven Spielberg is part of a god-hating conspiracy !]
hollywood leans to one side of the fence. God and Jesus aren't too popular in films and havent been since the sixties. That is fact.
When the first two (I'm going to pretend DOOM didnt happen) had the quest be for something about God and Jesus, it was very original because in Hollywood, this didnt happen much. Especially during the maverick-seventies era when God and Jesus were basically reverted to being curse words in cinema. So both these plots were very different, and, since Hollywood doesnt dig God much, it was kinda controversial too.
Aliens, on the other hand, have become the Native Americans of cinema. Beloved, and mythical. A replacement to a God that is NOT politically correct.
So when people on this board say GOD AND ALIENS are the same... I must disagree.
Aliens at this point are overblown; the new messiahs; but when RAIDERS and CRUSADE came out, GOD and JESUS were very rarely mentioned in mainstream films. At least not in a positive light.
IN A NUTSHELL: LAST CRUSADE would never be made today. Jesus is practically illegal now; half of what he preached would now be considered HATE SPEECH. And thus, HATE CRIMES.
So people complaining of Aliens are simply TIRED of aliens. Enough already.
