Sure "Alien3" is not at the very top of everyone's Fincher hitlist, especially not on Fincher's own. But I still like it for what it came out to be, especially after knowing all the chaos and desaster that was going on during the making of it. (If you haven't already, read this amazing behind-the-scenes report on the making of "Alien3") Well, and just to tell you this going in: The film gets two thumbs down! But Roger Ebert makes a fun comment along these lines:
While both critics definitely recognize Fincher's visual abilities (remember, he wasn't exactly a household name in 1992), I am a little surprised that they don't honor his much darker approach in theme and story. Pretty much the only thing they dwell on is that they thought the chase scenes towards the end felt drawn out.
And on "Se7en"? -- I'm not telling. See for yourself!
(Of course there is not a whole lotta new info in these. I'm posting them more for fun, because it made me smile when I found them.)
