Not for nothing... "When Studios Interfere" would be a great regular series.

I could think of a dozen shows to delve into.

I’d like to think that Alien 3 and resurrection were just Ripley’s dreams while she was asleep

I love Sigourney Weaver, but the demands about no guns was insane.

Can you imagine how this movie would have turned out if they gave the great David Fincher full control over the project?

*Fun Fact:* Some of the original ideas for Alien 3 were used as the plot in Alien Isolation Game.

Alien³ to me was a non-stop Industrial NIИ music video...

When studios interfere:

Spiderman 3
The Thing (2011)

Just imagine what these two movies could've been if the director have the rights to make their own decision without any interference.

Shout out to 'The Game'? No one ever talks about that movie, it's great.

this breakdown has brought a deep level of appreciation for this film considering all the bullshit David fincher had to put up with

I think Matt Reeves should direct an Alien movie

I've seen Alien 3 multiple times growing up. Seemed like it got regular rotation on late-night cable. The shots are memorable, and the score packs some punch.

"Alien 3: The Compromise Cut"

Author — NoCultist


When I was 15 I got the alien anthology set for my birthday. I'd only ever seen the first film and was looking forward to watching the sequels. I loved Aliens so much that I immediately put on Alien 3 afterwards. As soon as Hicks and Newt died I turned the movie off and went to bed upset. The next evening I decided to give the film another chance and started watching it again. As I sat watching the movie, I found myself becoming invested in the character of Clemens and his intriguing backstory. I believed that Clemens was the new male hero and I was shocked and annoyed when he's suddenly killed and then instantly forgotten about. By the time I got to the end of the film I didn't even care when Ripley sacrificed herself. Alien 3 desensitised me to death and I've always associated it with the randomness and fragility of life and the inevitably of our demise. The only question is how we check out....

I love the nihilism in this movie. In fact I like the nihilism in all the alien movies including the most recent ones.

The problem I have with newt dying is it makes all the effort to save her in Aliens completely worthless. They saved her for nothing.
