I can't believe this is a real thing that exists
+3 stars for the laughs
-0,5 star for making me look at the worst alien design ever created
Film #29 of Smiler Grogan's Scavenger Hunt
Task 20/30: A Fourquel
I am a huge fan of the Alien Franchise and even just finished watching and writing a glowing review of the often maligned Alien 3. The next logical step in this hunt was to then revisit its follow-up, Alien Ressurection and maybe answer a bothersome question. Just exactly what in the name of fuck happened here?
I think the answer is mostly pretty simple. The first three films…
reasons this was better than Alien 3:
• Sigourney Weaver and Winona Ryder loving each other
• I laughed out loud once
• Sigourney Weaver threatened to rip a mans tongue out for Winona Ryder
• I didn't want to kill myself
• thanks Winona Ryder
This movie is honestly so bad I don't even know where to start. Some people like Alien: Resurrection, but for me, it's just absolute torture.
I have literally have two good things to say about this movie. Some of the production design is nice, the sets for the most part look pretty good. And Sigourney Weaver is good as always.
Now let's get to the negatives. Every actor is so over the top, and it's hard not to be with…
My last viewing on Alien day (LV-4/26). The special edition is a bit longer than the theatrical version, but Jeunet prefers his theatrical cut. None of the added scenes did much for me.
La moitié de ce film est un 4, l'autre moitié est un 8, alors on tranche pour un 6. Si j'étais malhonnête, je dirais que la moitié 4 est celle de Jeunet et la moitié 8 celle de mon ami Whedon...
Ok, je suis malhonnête : comme on avait pas besoin d'un autre Alien, et comme on allait en faire un quand même, vaut mieux que ce soit ce scénario là. Comment réconcilier Fincher avec Cameron, c'était une dure tâche,…
This movie is pretty fucking terrible and basically shits all over the Alien series but I'll be damned if it isn't fucking hilarious.
Film #3 of Hoop-Tober 3.0
Franchise film #3
This movie basically kept giving me hope that it will be good just to let me down every damn time. The beginning was horrible. It was long and plain boring. Then some guys from I don't know where show up and it starts to be a bit interesting. Alas, just as the aliens escape it starts to get kind of boring. There were a couple of scenes that broke the rhythm of…
You are... a beautiful, beautiful, butterfly. - Brad Dourif slumming it in 1997
As an Alien movie it's fuckin' horrible and misses the point completely.
As a sci fi-action- horror film it's fairly boring and mediocre.
As in unintentional comedy it's fuckin' fire.
How this got made I have no idea.
Why this got made I have no idea.
But I kinda fuckin' love it.
It's kind of hard to not love a film where Ron Perlman shoots a fuckin' spider and Winona Ryder injects the Bible into her arm.
Sorry but this is my favorite Alien film, gory and squeeshieeeerghhh. Also, those ridiculous plot holes and neverending breathe underwater...
