I saw all three films for the first time a few years back, when I bought one of the (from what I understand, many) boxsets availiable. And it's only recently, the last few months perhaps, that I've heard people say they either didn't or don't like the sequals. Number three seems to get the worst of it, although that one is easily my favorite.
But hey, what do I know... my favorite of the Alien films is also 3.
