QuoteI've been thinking a lot about Alien³ since I saw it for the first time a few days ago, and I really don't think most of the criticism it gets is at all fair. For the record, I fukin loved the movie. It was incredible. I honestly loved it more than I did the original. Having that takeaway and reading the criticisms, I feel like we weren't even watching the same movie.Like, I get being upset with the stuff from Aliens being thrown out. But Cameron kinda did the same thing with Alien? He turned it from a horror movie into an action movie. How is turning it back into a horror movie suddenly a bad thing? Besides, Alien is like one of the few series where it's actually tonally consistent to kill main characters nihilistic-ally and unceremoniously.Reading some of the criticisms, I kinda don't even feel like we were watching the same movie. People thought the characters were all generic/unlikable bald-heads? They were oozing with personality. All the marines in Aliens were generic clones. Direct that criticism over there. Hicks was the most boring character alive. I feel like Fincher was faced with an ultimatum. He could either continue the story of the alien or he could continue the story of Newt and Hicks. And he made a pretty bold decision to go with the former instead of trying to balance them. Plus holy shit was the cinematography fantastic. Honestly the main downside in my mind was just the poor compositing on the alien itself. But I can look past that.Also I saw something about how the premise itself for Alien 3 is contrived, but have they forgotten that Aliens is a ridiculous comedy of errors? like jfc Aliens is a way worse offender than Alien 3 for every criticism I see except for special effects.
