    Gonna run through the 4 Alien movies in reverse and Prometheus ahead of Covenant, I'm thinking. From what I recall many balk at the premise of continuing the series with a Ripley clone. I think that totally works as a premise—not about to defend the way it's used, however. Weaver's performance is straight-up insane. It's like her script was run through a translator back and forth until it was just barely sensible, and her literally alien personality wears thin.

    *sigh*

    A once respected and serious franchise turned to self-parody...

    Why does the general audience let shit like this happen? How did Sigourney Weaver approve of this? Must've gotten a sweet paycheck.

    The tagline sums it up perfectly: It's already too late.

    Ich kann nicht Mal was zu dem Film sagen, da er mir so dumm wurde, dass ich gedanklich weg gedriftet bin und lieber am Handy rumgefummelt habe..

    Ofta missförstådd. Men varför skulle inte en Alien-film få lov att vara en komedi?

    Man, I was sure I had seen this movie before, but maybe I confused it with Alien 3?

    Anyway, I understand why this flick gets such bad reviews — the tone is completely different from that of the other films in the series, even to the point of seeming like it's having fun at the rest of the franchise's expense. Whereas the sensibility of other movies ranges from realism to melodrama, Alien: Resurrection feels like a comic book full of…

    Since I'd been recently watching Jean-Pierre Jeunet's other works I figured it was a good time to revisit Alien: Resurrection. This movie is the fourth installment in the Alien series and it really has no reason to exist other than to milk a franchise that Alien 3 nearly killed. Alien 3, as you all may or may not remember, was meant to wrap up the series by... (ancient spoiler ahead)... killing off the beloved character of Ellen Ripley. This may…

    If you ever wondered what an Alien movie would look like if it was turned into a zany French slapstick comedy, well, look no further.
