    Why do the aliens bark like lions? Biggest pet pieve. And that hybrid alien at the end?!? Whoever designed that thing should have tomatoes town at him at every opportunity.

    The c-c-c-characters are all w-w-wrong! I saw this and I didn't even know who the protagonist was. Jean Pjong what where you THINKING.

    *Theatrical Cut*

    It's quite sad that this is the only Alien film to be released in my lifetime (I was born in 1996 and not including Prometheus).

    This really is a sad end to the Alien franchise, until it is inevitably rebooted that is.

    It is bloody insane, the whole hybrid alien bullshit was so misguided, the CGI is piss poor and outdated to shit.

    There really was no reason to bring Ripley back, apart from money. She was given…

    I must have seen this film before, I thought to myself. I *know* I've seen it before, I want to see how it aged and how it compared to Alien and Aliens (Alien^3 is xenata non grata here).

    So, thirty minutes in, I found myself wondering, how come I don't remember *any* of this? And then I realised it was because they'd put the first films into a blender a given the resultant mush to Jeunet to form into something…

    Great trilogy's come in threes, so why did they make this one. All of the previous Alien films set up a mood and dark tone, this film throws it all away. None of the characters all likeable, Ripley isn't Ripley but a clone and even she's not likeable. The story of this film is awful and it was wrote by none other than Joss Whedon, I couldn't believe it, I thought the script and the story was terrible. The only…

    A visually repulsive third sequel which proves to be bizarrely inept at the script level (as soon as the aliens break out of quarantine the entire military personnel vacate the ship, the character of Christie proves himself to be a crack-shot early on, but can't hit an alien 3 feet below him...). Despite these faults and its god-awful CGI, Resurrection remains a thoroughly entertaining science-fiction horror, just as long as your brain is totally switched off.

    This movie is a mess. I think the concept is actually pretty cool, but after that, it's pretty much trash. WTF, Joss Whedon? Awkward lines and super uncomfortable misogynist lines. Sigourney does what she can with a super weird role, I actually think she's pretty great in this... Winona on the other hand? Bad job, kid. Major lack in the character motivation department. How am I supposed to feel for ANY of these people? Hybrid alien creature aka "Lil' Wiggle Nose" is pretty gross though, so that's cool...

    I still really dig this one. I don't think I knew until a couple of years ago that Joss Wheaton had written this one, and some of that still shines through the rewrites. A lot of clunky dialogue and weird exposition as well, though.

    Still, I can't hate a movie where Dan Hedaya gets to show off his shoulder hair.

    I'm not certain of why this film came about. Whether it was because of a desire to end the franchise in a better way after the failure of Alien 3 or just cashing in on the name of a popular franchise. Either way Alien Requiem is a weak addition to the Alien franchise and one that does not live up to the legacy that preceded it.

    This time it doesn't even feel like a sequel, but rather like a reboot.…
