ALIEN: RESURRECTION (alien 4) (1997 U.S.) D: JEAN-PIERRE JEUNET W: JOSS WHEDON P: BILL BADALATO/GORDON CARROLL/DAVID GILER/WALTER HILL
Most critics seemed to hate this entry, but i enjoyed it in a theatre and it was an interesting clash of art-house visuals (Jeunet was one half of the directorial team behind DELICATESSEN and THE CITY OF LOST CHILDREN) and Hollywood. Co-producer Sigourney Weaver is resurrected 200 years after the events in the previous entry with some alien DNA (there`s a bizarre Weaver/alien sex scene). I`d also like to think that Winnona Ryder`s secret is a sly bit of piss-taking on behalf of whoever cast the thing. Brad Dourif is fun as a mad scientist experimenting on aliens. With Dominique Pinon, Ron Perlman, Gary Dourdan, Michael Wincott, Dan Hedaya, Raymond Cruz, Leland Orser and the voice of Steven Gilborn. Unfortunately the world saw ALEN VS. PREDATOR movies in a few years.
