After watching "Alien" movies 4 and 5 and 6 I have come to the conclusion that 3 wasn't all that bad.
I've been a fan of the Aliens universe since the second movie scared me significantly back when I was a teenager. Since then I've bought the comics, the novels, the graphic novels and the "technical manuals". You could consider me a serious fan but I probably cross the fine line into rabid fan territory just a little too often for the 'serious' bit to stick. I have my favourite authors within the Aliens novels and my not so favourite ones.

So with that all said, the notion that somehow David created the Aliens has me feeling like Ridley has reached into my chest, grabbed my love of the entire genre, twisted, and then forcibly removed all but a skerrick of my enthusiasm for the entire franchise.
End of Spoiler warning.
The Aliens vs Predator movies were bad enough but this is 100 times worse.
I feel like I should be wearing a black armband. RIP 3 decades of fandom, I shall remember you fondly.
