Here is your Elessar fact of the day: I am actually a huge fan of the Alien franchise. Or well…I think I am. Alien is a genuine classic (and the best of the franchise), Aliens is a fantastic action movie and I’ve even been known to defend Alien 3, despite all it’s flaws. Since then, even discounting the comics and novels, it’s not exactly been easy to be a fan of Giger’s Alien. Alien Resurrection is a bizarre, non-functional mess, Alien vs. Predator is a boring slog with a notable lack of both action and gore, AvP: Requiem is somehow even worse (albeit more gory…so there’s that), and any and all of the games worth talking about range from uninteresting to flat out garbage.
