I feel like Resurrection was (or was trying to be) way more about creation of life and parenthood than the other movies, even Aliens. But Aliens did it better, because... Newborn........
Do you guys think this progression in genre shift was right, or should they have kept it strictly horror?
I still think Aliens is the overall best movie, but I can't help but think Alien is the best one just because it's the definitive Xeno experience. It's got the best Xeno and it's the one that covers the topic of rape the best, whereas Aliens' portrayal of the Xenos turns them into big space bugs, which doesn't sit right with me (even though I think the concept of a hive and Queen is cool).
Maybe keeping it horror would have made it stale. I think genre shifting is good, but the way it ended up is... not good. It turned out stale anyway.
