I think it starts with Hicks and Newt beein dead. Which I dont't like either. On the other hand, the Alien Universe is harsh...About films, why does many purist Alien-fans discard Alien 3?
I can very well understand Alien 4 (even though I like it in its own way), and definitely Prometheus and Covenant. However, Alien 3 seems to me have the same type of dark feeling as the two earlier, good characters, a deadly alien and so forth. What's not to like?
For me Alien 3 is fine, it's atmossphere isn't as dense as the first two flicks and the CGI is bad, but I like the Setting of the Prisonplanet.
