12 February 2006, mid-afternoon

I had nothing to do this Sunday afternoon, so I decided to sit down and watch Aliens. I bought the special edition of the DVD a little while ago, and hadn’t had a chance to watch it yet. The new cut of the film adds another 20 minutes to the film, making it a very long 2 hours and 40 minutes of Alien fueled mayhem. The movie is really good; some of the new scenes add a lot to the film. As sequels go, Aliens holds its own. The movie feels much different than Ridley Scott’s original movie. This probably has much to do with the fact that the audience knows all about the Aliens by the second film I suppose; that air of mystery just isn’t there. I don’t remember the 3rd and 4th films being particularly good, but after watching the first two, I really want to see the rest.



Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google": will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
