Two hundred years after Lt. Ripley died, a group of scientists clone her, hoping to breed the ultimate weapon. But the new Ripley is full of surprises … as are the new aliens. Ripley must team with a band of smugglers to keep the creatures from reaching Earth.
A completely unnecessary sequel that proudly takes over the label of Alien franchise's weakest chapter & also features an odd bit of interspecies erotica, Alien: Resurrection was seen by many as an improvement over Alien³ when it released but that's only because this film didn't have to deal with the reputation of two genre-defining chapters of the franchise & unlike its preceding instalment, it only gets worse on multiple viewings.
Set 200 years after the events of Alien³, Alien: Resurrection finds Ellen Ripley resurrected back to life through successful cloning & has the alien queen surgically removed from her body. In the hope of breeding this magnificent life form & study its biology, human hosts are used which are delivered by mercenaries but when…
Let's say you're riding a bike. You ride by the local candy store, waving to the local elderly couple making bank off of the giving of cavities to children. You ride downtown, witnessing a live concert and the general atmosphere of a sunny afternoon. You ride by a local pizza place, smelling the delectable cheeses being melted and watching the delivery guy carry 15 pies stacked up on top of one another.
The day is perfect.
You join up with a friend. The friend is a troublemaker. He's always the one bringing a fart noisemaker everywhere he goes and he somehow finds the time to tepee every house on Halloween. He's a cool guy though. As you're going down the…
....and it's all over.
We're a long way away from Ridley Scott's Alien (about 257 years or so) but with Fincher's empty Alien 3 diverting the franchise into existential gothic horror, at least Alien: Resurrection tries to have some fun.
It looks like an early outline for writer Joss Whedons own Firefly series, with a story in which he pits a roguish band of space pirates against our favourite face-fucking xenomorphs.
It's a little daft (Dan Hedaya stand up) and awkwardly macho (Big Ron P you're up) but there are some action sequences here - that in no way rival the punk rockness of Cameron's Aliens - but that do excite and raise the hearts BPM.
Sigourney Weaver often feels like a supporting character in her own damn story but Alien: Resurrection isn't a bad film, it's just not a very good one.
I've never thought about fucking a robot, but Winona would make me reconsider.
In 1979: In space, no one could hear you scream.
In 1997: In space, no one gave a fuck.
I tried so hard to avoid watching this film. I have'nt heard good things about it and I wanted to keep my love for the Alien franchise intact. Then I thought, "Why not! Prometheus is about to come out so I might as well go in seeing all the Alien films. It can't be as bad as Alien 3. This can't be THAT bad!" and it was'nt THAT bad. It was much, much, much, much, MUCH worse.
I don't understand how such a great franchise can be ruined by one film, and I saw The Matrix Revolutions AND Batman & Robin! I…
You read that star rating right, motherfuckers.
I feel like a YouTube commenter wishing for the good old days when movies like Alien Resurrection were getting made, but seriously, how many big-budget tentpole movies are getting made now (or, let's be honest with ourselves, then) where the thumbprints of at least three separate authors are visible in addition to the studio-demanded stuff? You've got Jean-Pierre Jeunet combining oddball, arty directorial choices (like a shot that takes the POV of Winona Ryder's fist as she punches J.E. Freeman in the face) with seemingly Evil Dead 2-inspired action scenes, Joss Whedon giving space assholes gruff dialogue to spit out, Darius Khondji making things all warm and dark and prettylike, and Sigourney Weaver…
Resumen: Hay un alien blanco que pone cara de gatete de Shrek.
Cuando va a empezar la versión extendida de esta peli, el director nos comenta que dicha versión no es un Director's Cut, porque (según él) la versión que se proyectó en cines ya llevaba su impronta, su sello, su "corte del director".
El corte que él como director debió hacer fue a los rollos de film que contenían la versión final de la peli. Eso nos hubiese hecho un favor a todos.
Incoherente, ilógica, inaguantable. Los 257 años que la separan cronológicamente de la maravilla de Ridley Scott son metafóricos de lo lejos que está "esto" de ser una buena peli de Alien.
Visually interesting. Some cool characters. I don't like the creature at the end. It makes me feel squirmy inside.
That sure was a third sequel.
“I'm the monster's mother”
The Joss Wheadon-penned Alien: Resurrection isn't as messy as its predecessor but on the other hand, is much more silly and unmemorable as a whole. With one exception, the subtexual elements continuing here - with a Ripley once again stuck with dudes referring to her as “fuckable” and “it” but the Ripley we see here is quite literally born again to become something much bigger.
After the scene where we see Ripley reemerge from her cocoon the aspect of Ripley having an alien inside of her and even partially being an alien is the biggest concept of the film. Even when she's stuck with being half an alien the dudes shit on her for “killing her…
Ripley è tornata ed ha portato qualcosa con sé. Ultimo capitolo della tetralogia fantascientifica più famosa della storia del cinema, in cui il regista (con)fonde le due razze (da brividi la scena della “stanza degli esperimenti”) mettendo in risalto l'abuso e la prevaricazione del limite della scienza da parte dell'essere umano. Sigourney Weaver in questi terreni algidi e disumani ci sguazza. Passabile il resto del cast.
Alien:Resurrection manages to be so bizarre yet so bland which is probably why I often forget I've seen it but it comes back in flashes like a fever dream. My initial reaction when you pitch that in this Alien sequel Ripley is part xenomorph is that's dope! But then if I give it any amount of thought I realize there's no way you can pull that off because it's very dumb and that turns out to be true. You're immediately detached from our favorite survivor Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) because it's not even the real Ripley, she one of many failed hybrid clones. In this movie she's assisting a crew of space pirates that includes Ron Perlman and Winona Ryder as…
Il plot di Alien - La clonazione è tremendo, scritto male, superficiale. E poi Alien che fa gli occhioni dolci non si può proprio vedere.
This one was just OK, it's a fine but not really inspiring entry in the Alien series. I felt that there were some improvements on Alien 3 in some areas, but also some steps backward. Despite my own feelings about Alien 3 I felt that Sigourney Weaver gave an excellent performance as Ripley in that film, but this time around it really felt like this was just a paycheck movie for her. The supporting cast is stronger this time, especially Winona Ryder, but there is a frustrating lack of characterization for most of the players. Another thing I'd like to mention is the rising action that occurs from when the Aliens are being bred to when the ship is abandoned.…
Points for grossness.
Movies about/starring women. I originally started this list just as a reference for myself, but hopefully others will find it…
times when rotten tomatoes' critics scores were wrong. OBJECTIVELY wrong (lmao jk).
i only just noticed every poster…
