Yes and yes and, again, yes. The extended cuts of all of the movies really make them better ( Spoiler with the possible exception of Ripley finding Dallas alive and cocooned, that made no sense to me since a soldier(for lack of a better term) alien can't produce eggs and has no queen to provide hosts/food for /digression ), especially Alien 3. So much was changed for the theatrical release than half of it just doesn't fit, the extended version puts it all back where it should be. Couldn't agree more about Resurrection though (FFS they even get the name of the god damn planet in 3 wrong! Named Fiori 16 in Alien 3 but is suddenly Fiori 161 in Resurrection or am I imagining that? I'm sure that's the case, maybe I've gone mad ) The AvP movies can just **** right off. Now I'm not against a cross franchise movie (since the idea was blatantly there from Predator 2 i.e. Alien skull in the trophy rack) however it needs to be done the right way...... 1 - A Predator is dropped onto a random planet with life to prove its worth. 2 - Random planet just so happens to be LV-426, possibly sometime in the future when it's been recolonised but has succumbed to an undiscovered nest with a queen. Net result being a planet with literally thousands, if not millions, of Aliens. 3 - Predator realises he's in the **** with this one and calls in the cavalry. 4 - Give the special effects department 98% of the budget. 5 - Await adoration from the public for not ****ing it up with ******** ancient Earth references, blood sample cloning, 'unexpected benefits of the genetic crossover' and/or Winona Ryder.
