I actually like Alien 3. Along with everyone else, when it came out I was disappointed. But I think that has more to everyone's expectations as Aliens was such a good movie (many hated it at the time too because it was nothing like Alien). I've watched it many times over the years, and I enjoy and appreciate it far more now, especially with the extra bits in the Directors Cut. Would have been interesting to see what David Fincher could have done without the meddling of Fox.
Would have also been interesting to see what Alien 4 could have been like if Joss Whedon had directed instead of Jean-Pierre Jeunet. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1kkNYNtQXo Joss Whedon on Alien 4. It's not playing for me, but hopefully it'll load for others. Basically, everything was done wrong and was nothing how he envisioned it when he wrote it.
