    Rewatching this reminded me of the time I got in an argument with a friend when I referred to this as "the one where Ripley has sex with the alien," and he got visibly angry while insisting that Ripley does NOT have sex with the alien. Watching it again, I'll concede that it's ambiguous, but at the very least, they're clearly spooning.

    ... and here's where the series flatlined. Coming off of David Fincher's shitshow that was Alien 3, comes one of the most unnecessary sequels of all time. This entry, written by Joss Whedon and directed by the guy who brought us Amelie, feels so tonally different to the rest of the series it just feels like an elementary Whedon movie guest starring the xenomorph. Whedon's Whedonisms totally work in his original properties and in comic book movies, but when applied…

    This was the worst of the bunch. Still some good stuff, mainly the hybrid at the end. Winona Ryder is really bad in this...

    On Joss Whedon, Firefly 1.0 and why Avengers: Age of Ultron actually sucks.

    Wait, what? Isn't this going to be a review of Alien: Resurrection? Well, sort of. I will hopefully tie it all together in a nice little bow and not let it degenerate into a horrible mess like Joss Whedon did with the screenplay of this movie. It's a shame really, because even though this fourth instalment lacks the atmospheric set pieces and deep-rooted ability to scare that…

    I always figured this movie is kinda the younger brother of the other Alien films. Lacking depth and suspense compared to the others. All that remains is a cool action film with some nice touches and the standout underwater sequence.

    This is my first time watch of the Special Edition. While the new cut makes Alien3 a much better film the difference here isn't as big and mostly fan service.

    Although not a bad movie in any way, AR feels…

    Not as bad as Alien 3, which is surprising given my affinity for Fincher. Jeunet proves that he is an endlessly flexible filmmaker, working with a totally shit script and bland characters, but pumping out a half-decent film.

    Well, they're falling back on the clichéd sci-fi concept of cloning the alien, and if you ask me, they probably should have just left this thing dead, because it's back and worse than we could have imagined... but enough about this film series. Seriously though, this series has launched the careers of titanic directors like Ridley Scott, James Cameron (Ha-ha, "'Titanic' filmmaker) and David Fincher, and with this grand finale, we see the debut of the legendary... Jean-Pierre Jeunet! ...Yeah,…

    This is my favorite movie of the Alien franchise, even though it's not the best by a long shot. It's good for a fourth movie, but they should never have made a fourth movie, you know? I'm a sucker for team movies, what can I say.

    I like that this movie goes back to its roots as a creature-feature, but I also think it was a step backwards for the franchise. An amazing cast line-up for this entry. There is some real disturbing gore and the second half really moves.

    Natürlich nicht so gut wie der erste Teil aber trotzdem ein guter Film.
    In der ersten Hälfte des Films gibt es ein paar Szenen die den Film wie eine Parodie seiner eigenen Filmreihe wirken lassen. Mal sind es komische Einfälle wie mal eben eine Patronenkugel über Bande schießen (und dann natürlich auch zu treffen xD ), schlecht gealterte CGI Effekte oder die schlechten schauspielerischen Leistungen von Dan Hedaya (Gen. Martin Perez) und J.E. Freeman (Dr. Mason Wren). Overacting in bester…

    It's like someone read a really bad fanfiction and made a film out of it.

    This wasn't the disaster I was expecting. It's bad, but there's an admirable weirdness to it. Unlike Aliens and Alien 3, which are unapologetic retreads of the first movie, Resurrection feels like it had a purpose behind it at some point. The premise is just too strange for this to be explained as a cash grab: Ripley is cloned 200 years after Alien 3 as a human/alien hybrid? Sure, okay.

    The actual movie is a conglomeration of awkward, stilted scenes,…
