    No matter the yada,yada, it was a poor movie and worst of the series.

      I agree it was the worst of the series, but I don't consider it a poor film at all.

      In any case, if one is binge-watching the quadrology (a great weekend's entertainment, although not as good as Bourne), you've gotta watch it, so why not get some pleasure out of enjoying the back story that went into the making thereof?

        The Prometheus backstory is extensive and curiously never shown in the actual movie! You have to comb the associated web-site to get it all.

          it mentions the Alien one was the third in a series.

          Just watched the video that goes with the first one, John Carter. VERY nicely made (no matter what you might think of the movie, which I haven't seen)

            the problem with the internet is that when you start a simple bit of "research" you can quickly end up down the rabbithole of endless links to links to links!

            A nice piece on final-cut squabbles on some famous movies in the '80s and '90s (many of which are near the top of my faves lists).

              I've always enjoyed Alien 3 and thought it was unfairly hated. Someone has to be the least impressive Miss Universe contestant.

                Rotten Tomatoes, a compilation of critics, gave it a 42 (out of 100). The users not much more: 48.

                  I always thought people thought Alien vs. Predator (which would be the 5th Alien movie and the 3rd Predator movie) to be the worst of the series. I thought I heard that the next primal droolfest would either...

                  (1) ...take place in space or on another planet, decades later, or...

                  (2) ...take place on Earth, a few years after AvP: Requiem, with the prevailing theme of genocide (them or us) hanging in the balance; and the producers introduce us to the Empress xenomorph.
