Went on opening day. I actually remember being excited to see this when the first movie previews started showing. I remember liking the movie although the new born completely caught me by surprise. It was sort of, what the f**k, that's not an alien. That thing is f**king ugly. After the movie I was rather pleased to have at least gotten another alien movie, everyone else was like that was f**king terrible but at least it was better than Alien³'s prisons running in circles crap fest. The theater was packed tight.
Yea the one thing people said after the movie that I remember vividly was "at least it wasn't Alien³". I don't think that meant it was better in their opinions, only that it wasn't Alien³. The one thing that actually made me go that's f**king stupid was when they were climbing the ladder and the alien was chasing them. From the fake and stupid looking acid spit to boner bending over backwards shooting the jiving alien to the slow head boom. I mean everything about that scene blew. Oh and that tail movement, god awful looking.
