Including the extended and director's cuts of each movie in the series, this is the only Alien film not to feature the cocoons. See more »
When Clemens performs the autopsy on the girl, her blood runs freely as if she had died very recently. However, she had been in the escape pod for a long time and then been frozen in the morgue. Even when defrosted, her blood would have congealed and would not flow or stain clothes the way it does. See more »

The 20th Century Fox fanfare that plays during the opening studio logo segues ominously into the score of the film. See more »
Alien was nothing short of a true sci-fi masterpiece from the great Ridley Scott. Then James Cameron comes in and creates one of the greatest sequels of all time. But Alien 3 is the absolute slap in the face to anyone who loves the series. This is a cold, heartless, and hopeless film. When I saw this film, I felt absolutely nothing for any of the characters. My only compassion went to Ripley at seeing all the hardships she had endured throughout the ordeal. The film had absolutely no memorable or likeable characters so when someone got killed, I really didn't care. What really bothers me about the film is it's lack of heart. The film had absolutely no humanity to it. I felt emotionally cut off by it from the opening credits. The death of Newt and Hicks, to me, was a huge mistake. I really thought that something could have emerged between Hicks and Ripley. And Ripley's relationship with Newt was such a wonderful connection that was really the driving force of Aliens. But now with Hicks and Newt dead, Ripley seems to have lost all her humanity and soul which gives the audience nothing to root for. All in all, this film can never and will never go up to par with the original two, and I continue to refuse to acknowledge Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection as part of the franchise. I even hear that there is a possible Alien 5. My only advice to Fox is that they get either Ridley Scott or James Cameron back in the director's chair. If you really want to enjoy a good Alien film, then watch Alien and Aliens. Don't waste your time with any others.
