If it's crap ... We'll tell you
I just watched all the movies back to back, and I think it should have ended with Alien 3 not Alien: The Cash Cow Sequel (Part 4). Ripley died a hero in the end, all that clone stuff was some fucked up bull.
The power of money.
But Alien 3 was Alien: The Cash Cow Sequel.
So was Aliens.
Alien 3 should have been the Alien Planet story line a few people at Fox wanted to do. Where we discover the xenomorph in its natural habitat and see what affect they had on world they originally evolved from. Maybe run in to other E.T's as well. Anything would have been better than killing off Newt & Hicks.
