Quote from: xenotaris on May 17, 2023, 02:01:20 AMWatched Alien 3 on TV, loved it at the time (before I rediscovered all three alien movies on a recordable VHS tape from my aunt. Now I am pissed that Hicks and Newt were killed in Alien 3 along with Ripley).

I think you had it right the first time tbh.

Well I still like ALIEN 3 I just hate seeing Newt, Hicks, and Ripley getting killed off that's all.

I think the third movie was the first one I did not watch in the theater. I didn't remember reacting to what happened to Newt and Hicks, but I found the movie dreary. Later, I imagined that they could have set it in something like a space city, with all protagonists alive and involved in political intrigue, and then found out later that one script--by Gibson--was supposed to offer similar.

From there, I had a similar reaction to the rest of the features.

Yes, it upset me. Its now the reason why I jump to the Dark Horse Earth War Alien comics after I am done with ALIENS.

Quick question, does everyone here really like ALIEN 3? I'm just wondering because I don't want to upset people who do. Just to make it clear I am a HUGE fan of James Cameron's ALIENS, the Dark Horse Comics, the ALIEN RPG, and AVP 2/Primal Hunt

What? Are those unpopular opinions on this forum because I came from scified and the majority of people there were pretty much ALIEN only fans?

No, it's not unpopular. You'll just find people have come to like and appreciate Alien 3 a lot more over the years. But all opinions are welcome here, as long as folk can talk about the differences in them with respect.

There will be people who are not nice about not liking Alien 3, and tell you you're wrong,

But like what you like. Most people don't care what specific things people like.

You know, I had you pegged as a cheeky 20-something this whole time.

It's not so much that, as it is, the place has had a bit of a reputation from dot one.

It used to be a Prometheus fansite/promotional website before they started branching to other scifi movies

Calm down pal. You are among friends here. It's perfectly okay to ask questions. Also all movies have fans, AVPR included :)

I take it some former SCIFIED users migrated over here?
