Nope. Neither does Luke Skywalker's "facelift" in ESB. Some things just "is"...

Doesn't the wampa attack correct that?

NO. Period.

...then on the other hand I'm a flaming A3 fanboy.

Except it isn't. It's not a well made film. It's pretty and it sounds nice, but it's a hacked together mess. The only people who refuse to admit it are fans who for some reason decided they needed to convince themselves otherwise.

I like Alien3 more than Aliens, but it's not the better movie.

That was a classic thread.

Imagine your alternate universe self if Blumpkin's movie had actually been made and Alien 3 got retconned out of canon.

Alien Primordial Origin

Alien 3 did not kill the franchise but just ruined it and take franchsie to the wrong direction.

Alien 3 is OK as a standalone film.  But as a sequel to Aliens?  It's terrible! Both theatrical cut and special edition.
It's retrospective destroy Aliens too.

Some Alien 3 fan (that trying too hard to be edgy) say they can't handle the good ending of Aliens. Because Alien universe is cold and dark blah blah blah , So don't expected anything positive about the fate of the characters.
Well f**k that!  I tell you what , Alien 3 is the first film in the franchise that have a bad ending. While both Alien and Aliens have a good ending.

Many Alien fan who defend Alien 3 are actually hate it. They lie to themself by saying they like it just to suppress their dissapointment and hatred of the film.

No they probably like it, since its just a matter of taste. Each fan has their own opinion and views on Alien 3, on how it affected the series and all, either for better or worse.

I'm fine with it. You hate it. Some people love it. Its okay either way.

Alien Primordial Origin

My statement is the FACT. Because I personally know plenty of Alien fan who hate Alien 3. but they say they like it just to supress their dissapointment of the film. I never refer it to any member of the forum.

And sorry for my bad language. Bacause english is not my first language.

Your generalisation does refer to everyone on the forum. Let's avoid them. It's not fact, you speak for a small pool of people you happen to know. I can't say I know a single person who defends Alien 3 because they secretly hate it.
