Yes, i suspect most people still don't like Alien 3. We have a very tiny cross-section of people on here who are hard-core fans of the series and therefore embraced Alien 3. The casual fans of the series or the people for whom the series had broad appeal have long gone. That is Alien 3's fault.
People wanted a dark Swiss Family Robinson in space after Aliens. That's basically the direction that film took the series in. People wanted the series to be based on certain beloved characters and not just about alien creatures with no personality. They are alligators for all intents and purposes...
Folks on both sides think they speak for the broader fanbase, its pretty funny.
It would be much better if people simply stated their own opinions and wants for this series without trying to attach them to the the rest of the community.
Just about everyone here has their own personal spin on what they like and want to see from this franchise.
Personally a "dark swiss family robinson in space" sounds absolutely terrible in regards to this universe. But hey, to each their own.
I find it funny how some of you guys defend AC and say how alien 5 would have been stupid...did you even watch AC did I see a different version... not only was AC stupid..it was a bad movie and RIdley scott is not a legend... he has tenure but that doesn't make you a legend.... Spielberg is a legend..... don't confuse the too
All your opinion I guess.
I enjoyed A:C well enough and I think Ridley has earned his status as a top film maker.
I have no problem with Blomkamp doing an Alien film, it would probably be pretty cool. I just don't want to see Ripley, Hicks, and Newt brought back just because.
