    Poorly acted and heavily recycled from the original, "Alien: Resurrection" is completely devoid of any kind of style or substance.

    Maybe it was unnecessary, tacked on, and a little silly, but I still feel this film is a vast improvement over Alien3 (because obviously I can't compare it to Alien or Aliens). It looks a lot better and with the exception of Charles S. Dutton's Dillon in Alien3, the characters are a lot more memorable in Resurrection. It did, however, feature possibly the most disturbing nude scene, sex scene, and kiss out of all of the films I have seen..

    Well it was hard to do but I watched it. A movie with good ideas but with serious execution problems. Not surprising that the series died for a long time after this movie.

    Tip: Once a series shits the bed, keep shitting. Don't stop, it'll get better. Like if Firefly, Evil Dead II/Army of Darkness, and A Goofy Movie were spliced into the Alien franchise. You can thematically see it as a sort of "putting it all to bed." Starting anew, expelling the past, etc. But really, it's just stupid wholly, tenderly embraced.

    And ain't this the cutest thing ever?

    Retrofits the Alien franchise with video game plasticity; the theatrical cut begins by glossing over an abstract mass of flesh and bone before transitioning into a linear progression through a matrix of tunnels and vents, a parallel work to Paul W.S. Anderson's Event Horizon: in which spatial logic completely overpowers plot. A series of constant mutations and transformations, Resurrection attacks everything from Capital to Catholicism, totally reinventing its schema every other scene. (Some may call this inconsistent, but what inconsistencies…

    Joss Whedon wrote this shit?

    Man, Alien: Resurrection is the ugliest movie in this franchise by an incomprehensibly wide margin. It’s so much worse than Alien 3. It’s cheap and boring and devoid of any characters or drama that can be cared for. Ripley’s not Ripley. The aliens are just terrible. There’s no comradery or emotional core or character psychologies that make any sense. Sure, Winona Ryder’s beautiful and Ron Perlman’s always fun to watch and Newborn’s death is mesmerizing…

    I finally see it now, why the dislike. I've always liked Alien 4. First a bit of content though. It's the first Alien movie I watched in a theater as opposed to on TV. It was 1997, and I still remember it: the opening credits alone made my heart swell. I was overwhelmed by the awesome. And the music, oh my! I got the sound track on CD. I had waited for a new Alien with bated breath and I…

    "I'm not the mechanic here, Ironsides! I mostly just hurt people!"

    Jean-Pierre Jeunet's Alien: Resurrection is still a mostly fun romp with a lot of crazy visual effects and a certain kooky tone that sets it apart from the other Alien films. But unfortunately, this rewatch has turned Resurrection from my favourite film in a series I didn't care for into my least favourite in a series I've grown rather fond of.

    This is rather unfortunate, because it all starts…

    I've gotta be completely honest and upfront about this: I have never watched any of the other movies on the Alien franchise. That's right: This, the one considered the worst of the bunch, is my first brush with the Alien universe. For what it's worth, this movie actually really makes me want to watch the others out of sheer curiosity. I also really enjoyed the experience at large, if mostly because I was laughing half the way through, at scenes…

    Better than Alien^3. Sadly it will probably get retconned in the future.

    I watched the theatrical cut.
