The director hated the final cut so much he disowned himself from the movie. I got the Alien Quadrilogy a few years ago which had the directors cut of Alien 3, I thought the DC was much better then the original, the added scenes definitely made it feel like a complete movie and a pretty fitting ending for the series though I wish they would have gone with some of the other ideas and scripts I read about, I recommend you check it out if you can. The 4th Alien was the one that no directors cut could improve, totally pointless. I saw the "Aliens" director cut and talked about it a little, it is definitely the cut James Cameron wanted and is not just filler stuff, he had to heavily cut "Aliens" because the studio demanded a shorter movie which he was not happy with.
Yes sir, you are right on the money, Camron was giving us a full blast of his spectacular version of the ALIEN story. despite it being more action packed than ALIEN, it was still very imaginative. (tell me you didn't like that bad-*** drop ship or that APC..awesome..) But the studio didn't think so, unfortunate. Another studio gem ALIEN RESURRECTION however, was just horrible. Right down to the freakin' music. Reminded me of some old BATTLE STAR GALACTICA ****. OMG WTH were they thinking? that has got to be one of the worst sci-fi movies that I have ever seen.
As far as ALIEN 3, that was just a cluster f****. Although Charles S. Dutton along with some other actors, especially the ones from the BSC did an excellent job, I felt the story was just stupid. I mean come on, after all that **** they been thru they kill off Hicks and Newt in a crash landing and maroon Ripley on a de-comissioned prison planet with no weapons? They were on a MILITARY STARSHIP packed to the gills with STATE OF THE ART WEAPONRY. and it didn't have a lifeboat that stowed at least a few pulse rifles?..LMAO. This was they best that could come up with? FAIL Just like the PS3 game. ULTRA FAIL.

2001 A Space Odyssey.

Utterly captivating since first seen at the age of 8. Goes best with the A.C. Clarke novel and a horde of books written to *attempt* an explanation at the meaning. Just ordered a commemorative 4-volume plus metal casing edition containing still images, interviews, screenplay, and production notes.

Braveheart

I've seen these movies at least a 100 times over the span of 15 years. My two favorite movies of all time. When I need a "Game of Thrones" fix while the show is off season I watch both of these movies
