"You've been in my life so long, I can't remember anything else."-----Ripley
DECEASED - Hicks, Newt and Bishop
Although Bishop was never really alive unless you believe in the ghost in the machine. The opening scene for Alien 3 rubbed some people the wrong way. Characters you cared about in Aliens were now DEAD.
The point of my blog though is this, Alien 3 theatrical cut SUCKED! The special edition that came out a year ago ROCKS! There is so much added that it is a totally diferent movie. On top of that there are things that are deleted. This is the highest selling point for me, because the scene they cut out was the scene I hated the most. It's almost worse than Guido shooting first......YUCK! The scene that I am referring to is the one where the chest burster busts out of Ripleys chest as she is falling into a vat of extremely hot liquid. Not wanting it to survive, she holds onto it, and it is consumed with fire along with her. You may think that that sounds fine, but you probably haven't seen the special cut of the film. She falls and lands in the hot liquid, kills the alien that is growing INSIDE of her. Maybe not as dramatic, but when you see it you'll understand. It is now a way better movie.
"Ripley! Think of all that we can learn from it! It's the chance of a lifetime, you must let me have it!"-----Bishop II
