It also didn't occur to Ripley that the marines were walking into a nest where they'd find the cocooned bodies of the colonists.  If the DC of Alien was canon, then she should have known what to expect as soon as she saw the hive.
I think it's safe to assume that she should have known what to expect (the colonists were f**ked) the moment she saw the hive regardless of whether she'd found Brett and Dallas.

I wonder why Ripley didn't balk at sending the marines into the hive, especially when she pointed out where it was in relation to the AP's cooling system.  Her advice at that point should have gone something like this: "Don't send them in there with nothing but flamethrowers!  We already know enough about what happened here!  They're going to find nothing but corpses down there!"

Or maybe she figured it would have been futile and they had to learn the hard way.  Still, at least she could have tried.

He always said that the Director's Cut was just a marketing gimmick and his preferred cut was the TE.

Yeah, and instead making an extended version, created a faster paced version for younger viewers I think he said.
