Well, it's been a long time since I've watched Alien 3 so I have forgotten most of what's going on inside the film. But what I do remember of it really had nothing to do with wanting it to ramp up the action beyond that of Aliens. I'm all for going in a different direction. My biggest bone of contention was killing off Newt and Hicks....even before the movie started. It's hated by most because we grew to care about those two characters along with Ripley. So to kill them off, it made the 3rd act of Aliens kind of irrelevant. What was the point of saving those two if you're just going to kill them off at the beginning of the next movie? When the film started, I was floored, along with everyone else in the theater. You could literally hear people saying "what the f uck did they do"?

The other thing I remember of Alien 3 were the bad Special FX shots of the Alien Monster. It looked really bad, like a cut and paste job. There is a reason why the Aliens in the first two kick so much ass because they were shot on set with practical models. The ones in Alien 3 were CGI and very noticeable. Maybe they went back and fixed it, I don't know. I'll give Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection their own thread soon so that I can put the entire franchise in context.
