ALIENS 3 is everything that's wrong about Hollywood, from an incorrect title (it's ALIENS 2)
Actually (!!!) it's Alien 3. No 'S'.
So would that make it technically Alien 2 since Aliens was called Aliens? Or is it Aliens 2 because it's a sequel to Aliens? Or is it just plain old Alien 3 since it is the 3rd movie in the series.
The wife and I were talking about this the other day, as we caught a few minutes of Alien: Resurrection whilst channel surfing.
Truthfully there didn't NEED to be anything beyond Alien. It's a classic that still give me the creeps every thime I watch it.
However, the Action and adventure in Aliens was really cool at the time. It still stands up all these years later. As a different KIND of movie than the original, I think it deserves it's place in sci-fi/action movie history.
BUT that's where it should have stopped. Alien 3, and Ressurrection were just too much it IS a prime example of Hollywood seeing the potential for more $$$ and milking the idea. Unfortunately, what we got, didn't satisfy.
edited to add.
Yeah, count me in on finding a copy of that comic as well.
I didn't know you did one either!
edited again well because I can't get it to make the 3 the correct way. Its the small 3 as in "Cubed" but if you look at the link you'll see.
