Alien 3

Of course, Alien 3 is a movie that was made but among true fans of the franchise it’s the biggest disappointment. That’s why all the myriad screenplays that floated around Hollwood prior to David Fincher’s failure of a film intrigue us so much. Be it the one where the aliens come to Earth, the one cyberpunk hero William Gibson wrote, or the incredibly intriguing one that took place in a monastery on a planet made entirely of wood, they all sound better to us than what we got. If you’ve ever wondered what the two nerds sitting in the corner by themselves at a party are talking about, now you know.
