Resurrection is...tolerable. Like a trip to the bathroom, if you dare to look at the end product for what it is, you see it's just a poo circling the drain in a shameful display of indifference. An unrecognizable hodgepodge of everything that was once grand and good, now coated in dirtiness.

One can either accept its existence as part of life, or continue to mourn for what could've been.

I've said it before, Rez is to Alien as Hot Shots is to Top Gun

Do you wish you hadn't said it?

This. Hence the condition "bad Alien film ".

The "do i have to draw you a schematic" line is utter gold though. Even if it fell from Tywin Lannister's ass.

Used it many, many times lol.

I love it, yeah used it a lot.

I don't love it, but it didn't kill the franchise I think. I actually really like that it expanded a little of the Alien lore with the "it can get traces from the host" concept.

It's the third best film in the franchise, the second and first being obvious. Alien is the best one. And Covenant just below the top three.

Mike Wincott is still the man though.

They should've kept him longer in the film, to the end even. Kill someone else off instead.

Perhaps, but I'd also say John Hurt's the best actor in the original Alien.

I found him a bit cringey in Resurrection myself.

As did I.  Even Dan Hedaya is tolerable in other movies, but AR brought the ham out of everyone.

How does this ham differ from the ham in say, Predator 2?

The ham in P2 is rolled in cocaine, sprinkled with generous amount of OWLF spice and glazed in a thick Cajun magic sauce. Each ham is blessed by a former Voodoo priest of the LA posses, and baked to a luscious golden brown on enchanted stone, emitting a pleasant aroma of sweet @$$.
