Jim Sterling takes famously "awful" films and sees the good in them.

Alien 3 is maligned as a brutal downturn after the brilliance of Aliens, and is hated for a number of narrative shifts. However, its impact on the franchise and influence on sci-fi horror cannot be understated -- and it is, in many ways, the best Alien movie of them all.
