An unaged man without a memory is sent by a secret multifaith order of monster hunters as the last hope of a lineage doomed to purgatory unless they slay the lord of all vampires.

Not a great or bad movie, but still good enough to be worth watching. It's mostly interesting because of its main character, and the rest of it is piecemeal and without particular substance.

I think this movie was my initial introduction to Kate Beckinsale, and it turns out she's a lot hotter in my memory than in this actual movie. Maybe she was better-presented in the next movies of hers that I saw after this.

A girl, hiding in a church, writes a letter to the police who, without evidence, raise a stink.

I couldn't get half way through this. Not only do the various genres in this movie not interest me, but it highlights "listen and believe". I fucking guarantee that's why Emma Watson is in this.

A genius-recluse works on artificial intelligence, and brings in a young man to test his most recent success.

I don't know what it says about me, but I find this movie innocent, beautiful, and deeply disturbing. I honestly don't think it would be moral of me to recommend this to anyone except as a sort of cautionary tale of the inevitable.

Evil returns to find Ash.

Playful. It is clearly capitalizing on the success of the franchise, but it's not really interesting to me, as though it's stretching out the story ideas. It's okay, though not especially recommended. I watched a bit of it, but I'd rather do other things with my life.

An explorer ship bumps into aliens.

AVOID AVOID AVOID.

Do not watch this, especially if you are a fan of the alien movie franchise.

Once I re-watch this I'll add some more notes.

The survivors of an alien attack struggle to stay alive aboard their research vessel, and learn its true purpose.

Perhaps because Alien 3 (1992)[doesn't exist] wasn't as amazing as the first two, Alien: Resurrection wasn't that impactful. I think it was a cop-out of an odd reboot.

  • This is properly titled Alien: Resurrection

  1. Alien - (1979 movie)
  2. Aliens - (1986 movie)
  3. Alien 3 - (1992 movie)
  4. Alien - Resurrection - (1997 movie)

Survivors of an alien attack crash next to a prison and learn that the alien came with them.

This was my first movie with a shaved-headed woman. I guess I was all "oh no she di'int, now wesa gettin serioooos".

In my mind, the franchise was significantly weakened by this movie. It just didn't "feel right". Perhaps the previous two were so good that they became too tough to follow.

  • Properly titled ALIEN3

  1. Alien - (1979 movie)
  2. Aliens - (1986 movie)
  3. Alien 3 - (1992 movie)
  4. Alien - Resurrection - (1997 movie)

Waking from long hibernation, a woman claims to be the survivor of an alien attack from a planetoid which has since become a terraforming colony.

A direct descendent of Alien (1979)[doesn't exist], this movie not only builds on but improves on the movie, turning this into a blockbuster franchise.

  1. Alien - (1979 movie)
  2. Aliens - (1986 movie)
  3. Alien 3 - (1992 movie)
  4. Alien - Resurrection - (1997 movie)
