That's kinda the point though. Fury 161 is a prison at the ass end of space after all, what else it's supposed to look like ? Personally, I find that aesthetic very appealing because I saw a lot places like that here - dirty and in long need of repair, it always reminds me of a ward in local hospital, very nostalgic

You get that aesthetic in ALIEN - without the sh*t-coloured browns.  :laugh:

Brown is not the colour of shit - it's the colour of chocolate ! Nom, nom

Brown to highlight the state of decay of the prison facility, the rustiness of it. I think it's a perfect fit, although I get the non-appealing aspect of it of course  :laugh:

He did elevate the first movie from what it was supposed to be though.

Would argue alien resurrection is way, WAY more brown in its set designs than alien 3 is. Everything in resurrection is yellow/brownish color, even ripleys clothes ffs.

I watch Alien and say to myself "this one's my favourite".

I watch Aliens and say to myself "this one's my favourite".

I watch Alien³ and say to myself "this one's my favourite".

And then I just watch Alien Resurrection.

Same except I almost never find myself watching Resurrection these days. It's pretty much only when I'm doing a completist tour of the whole series. It's never quite as bad as I remember but it's almost as bad.

Resurrection has more replay value for me than Alien 3.

It's easy to stick on and half watch, me and CB can attest to that but, nah I definitely actually watch Alien³ SE the most, then Alien, then Aliens.
