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.

I love that the third film's ending is so bleak. Movies almost always have happy endings, but in reality life is often pretty shitty. Alien 3 reflects that, and even now it's refreshingly ballsy how it offs its star character.

Not to mention the conclusion manages to be quite uplifting despite being so downbeat.

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.

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.

Another in denial. *sigh*

Sit down Hicks.  Come, let's explore why you secretly suppress your disappointment with the film. 

But first, let's talk about your childhood...

Personally, A3 is my favourite of the series.

I'd say so also, if Alien didn't exist.

That's just embarassing statement . " I don't like it so you can't like it. Even if you like it you're just pretending and lying to yourself. That's the FACT ". Ugh

100% agree, people around here still bitter that the turd that was going to be Alien 5 from Blomhack never happened, Alien 3 -Assembly Cut- is a masterpiece.

Btw I had a field day reading all the "bUt aLiEnS wAs tHe LaSt oF tHe FrAnChIsE"... my goodness talking about being disconnect from reality.

If you're going to completely misrepresent what someone said, it's best not to quote them.

Many fans deify Alien 3 to a ridiculous extent.

Threads like this are pretty unnecessary in all honesty, as they usually end up devolving into slanging matches (this one doesn't seem to be an exception).
