The "I died" bit always makes me smile too.

Resurrection gets at least 1 star from me, just for Mike Wincott.

Q

Couple of my faves are:

"Does that compute?  Or do I have to draw you a schematic?"
"Hey, I'm not the mechanic, ironsides!  I mostly just hurt people."

Even the latter line was improved from Whedon's clunky "I mostly just hurt guys".

At the other end of the spectrum...

RIPLEY - Get away from me.

JOHNER - Why should I?

RIPLEY - Because pain hurts.

It's a quality gag, and one of the few that fits well with previous entries in the series.


However, I still maintain that it's a good-but-not-great movie - without any caveats or conditions like so many apply to it. None of this "good sci-fi, bad Alien" stuff.

However, basically everything sucks compared to Alien and Aliens, so that's a dishonest metric. As an admittedly unnecessary and gimmicky continuation of the Ripley story, it manages to be both an exploration of the weirder aspects of the franchise and an absolutely gorgeous funhouse ride.

And I'll defend it to the bitter end as a decent, strange, nightmarish Alien flick.

As flawed as it is, I'd take A3 over Resurrection any day.

Resurrection is...tolerable. Like a trip to the bathroom, if you dare to look at the end product for what it is, you see it's just a poo circling the drain in a shameful display of indifference. An unrecognizable hodgepodge of everything that was once grand and good, now coated in dirtiness.

One can either accept its existence as part of life, or continue to mourn for what could've been.

I've said it before, Rez is to Alien as Hot Shots is to Top Gun

I used to be able to enjoy it as an alien film. But having just watched it for the first time in awhile, the faults are becoming a bit more obvious now. The humor is good, but that's where the quality stopped for me.

Mike Wincott is still the man though.

Part 2 was pretty good.
