Review: Aliens: 30th Anniversary Edition

16 September 2016 10:26 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

The 1980s was perhaps the first decade where sequels were crowding the theater screens and most were justifiably vilified by critics and fans alike for being little more than a retread of the original. That changed when director James Cameron, fresh off a little indie production The Terminator, was tasked with a sequel to 1979’s surprise hit, Alien.

The Hollywood executive merry-go-round delayed the sequel by several years, although that allowed Cameron to hone his ideas with producer/wife Gale Anne Hurd. He envisioned a story where the humans were akin to the Americans during Viet Nam, strangers seriously outnumbered in a strange land. After insisting the film star Sigourney Weaver, who was in a contract dispute with 20th Century-Fox, all the pieces came together.

When the movie opened in 1986, it set a new higher standard for what a sequel should be, which was expanding upon the characters and universe seen in the first film. »

Blu-ray Review – Aliens: 30th Anniversary Edition

16 September 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Aliens: 30th Anniversary Edition

Written and Directed by James Cameron.

Starring Sigourney Weaver, Michael Biehn, Paul Reiser, Lance Henriksen, Carrie Henn, Bill Paxton, William Hope, Ricco Ross, Al Matthews, Jenette Goldstein.

Synopsis:

Aliens sees its forty-second release on home video (I’m only exaggerating a little) with this edition, which is a repackage of the Blu-ray movie disc from Alien Anthology with some collectibles tossed in. You also get codes for a digital copy of the theatrical version of the movie and a new featurette, The Inspiration of Aliens.

How many times have you bought the Alien movies on home media? I had the first two on VHS way back when (yes, pan-and-scan, but to be fair, letterboxed VHS movies weren’t easy to find), and of course I scored Alien Quadrilogy several years ago. I later picked up Alien Anthology on Blu-ray. I know, I’m probably a »

Sigourney Weaver and James Cameron Look Back at Aliens on Its 30th Anniversary

13 September 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Three decades before strong, competent and powerful female action heroes like Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games, Black Widow in The Avengers and Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens finally became fixtures in film, there was Sigourney Weaver as Ripley in Aliens. The actress debuted Warrant Officer Ellen Ripley in director Ridley Scott's moody 1979 sci-fi/horror masterwork Alien, deftly eluding a monstrous, murderous and nearly indestructible extraterrestrial life form. But it wasn't until that film's long-gestating sequel Aliens arrived in 1986, written and directed by future action auteur James Cameron, that Ripley truly emerged as an ass-kicking action heroine »

Review: ‘Mr. Robot’ Throws All Decorum Out The Window

Last Week’S Review: ‘Mr. Robot’ Anoints A New Madam Executioner

In Elliot’s Head, Two’s A Crowd

We finally get to see an objective view of Elliot’s time in prison — not for any of his world-shaking exploits, but for hacking Krista’s ex and stealing his dog. Ray was the warden, Leon played Freddy to Elliot’s Nas and we get answers to a lot of questions that we’ve already moved past. By keeping Elliot out of last week’s episode completely, it blunts the impact of these revisionist details. It also raises a larger question about the function of this kind of narrative approach. Rather than surprise or delight, the reveal of these details feels mostly like a rote checklist of things to explain before we can move on to the next bit of the story.

As Elliot is released back into the world, something »

Mr. Robot Recap: Freedom Isn't Free

31 August 2016 8:10 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Elliot may be walking the streets again in this week’s Mr. Robot… but that doesn’t mean he’s smiling underneath that hoodie.

Ok, fine, Elliot never smiles. But he’s got a lot on his mind just the same. The episode kicked off by flashing back to the end of Season 1, when Elliot heard that knock on his apartment door. Turns out it was the cops, arresting him for hacking his therapist’s sleazy boyfriend and stealing his dog — a dog that cost $1,200, by the way, making the canine theft a felony. So when Elliot pled guilty to »

Comedy’s Comeback: Networks Push Boundaries With Bold New Half-Hours

30 August 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

To students of television comedy, “Community” star Joel McHale is making a big transition this year.

The leading man of the most unconventional, unrelentingly meta sitcom ever to air on broadcast is moving to CBS for a multi-camera show, “The Great Indoors,” which pokes fun at the pop culture punchline of the moment: those wacky millennials. McHale plays a maverick photojournalist who is brought in from the field to rescue a magazine overrun by young staffers.

Across the dial, from broadcast to cable to streaming heavyweights, the number of comedy series is rising as networks seek a counterweight to the explosive growth of original dramas during the past five years. The expansion has opened up the playing field for traditional three-camera sitcoms as well as more esoteric single-camera fare.

Art Streiber for Variety

To McHale, the significance, in creative terms, of the single-camera vs. multi-camera format has been wildly overstated at a time when the boundaries of »

Michael Peña And Alexander Skarsgard Wage War On Everyone In New Trailer

12 August 2016 9:48 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

John Michael McDonagh is a filmmaker that has become synonymous with a very particular breed of black comedy. Across The Guard and Calvary, the Irish writer-director repulsed just as much as he entertained, and has carved out a loyal following in the process. For his latest, though, he’s about to wage War on Everyone.

Enlisting Michael Peña (End of Watch, Ant-Man) and Alexander Skarsgård (The Legend of Tarzan) as two morally questionable brothers in blue, War on Everyone is a thriller that involves blackmailing, extortion, racketeering and just about every other offence that would lead to any other career going up in smokes.

With McDonagh behind the lens – expect razor-sharp dialog throughout – and signs of a cracking chemistry between Peña and Alexander Skarsgård’s gun-toting leads, color us intrigued.

Paul Reiser Has No Plans for ‘Mad About You’ Revival

7 August 2016 1:42 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A quarter century after its debut, “Mad About You” endures as one of TV’s classic romantic comedies. But despite the mania for reunions, revivals and sequels that has spread across the dial, series co-creator and star Paul Reiser has no intention of revisiting the lives of Paul and Jamie Buchman any time soon.

In Reiser’s mind, the question of what the couple, played by Reiser and Helen Hunt, would be doing today was answered in the two-part series finale that aired May 24, 1999, capping a seven-season run on NBC.

“One of the things we did deliberately in the finale was that we jumped ahead in the future. We saw where they went,” Reiser told Variety. “Part of why we did that was to avoid the temptation of going back…When you watch a reunion (show), all you do is say ‘Wow do they look older.’ ”

Reiser at present is a co-star of the 1980s-set Amazon comedy »

'Stranger Things': 8 Questions We Still Have

"The campaign was way too short."

"It was 10 hours!"

"But what about the lost knight? And the proud princess? And those weird little flowers in the cave?"

In its final minutes, Stranger Things comes full circle, and the irresistible Netflix nostalgia bath, salted with 1,500 pounds of 1980s sci-fi movie references, ends where it began: Four friends wrap up an all-day session of Dungeons & Dragons, eager for the next adventure. The conversation above is a cheeky meta-moment, like talking through a pitch session for a second season. Wasn't 10 (or, in this case, »

The Alien Franchise Made This One Big Mistake Says James Cameron

25 July 2016 12:40 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

One of the many movies celebrating a milestone anniversary this year is the beloved 1986 sci-fi sequel Aliens, director James Cameron's follow-up to Ridley Scott's 1979 masterpiece Alien. This franchise is alive and well, with Ridley Scott currently filming Alien: Covenant, a follow-up to 2012's Prometheus that will help bridge the gap between the prequel and the original Alien. Filmmaker Neill Blomkamp is also putting together a project tentatively known as Alien 5, but we don't know when that will move forward quite yet. While celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Aliens at Comic-Con this weekend, director James Cameron revealed the Alien franchise's biggest mistake.

Screen Rant attended the Aliens 30th Anniversary panel at Sdcc, which included James Cameron, producer Gale Ann Hurd and stars Sigourney Weaver (Ripley), Bill Paxton (Hudson), Lance Henriksen (Bishop), Paul Reiser (Burke), Michael Biehn (Hicks) and Carrie Henn (Newt). While the sequel is still beloved by fans around the world, »

Watch: James Cameron and Cast Remember ‘Aliens’ In 30th-Anniversary Panel

25 July 2016 10:51 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It’s been 30 years since James Cameron followed Ridley Scott’s seminal work Alien with a bigger, bloodier sequel. Aliens was Cameron’s third film, and it skyrocketed the director’s mass-market appeal, having been proceeded only by The Terminator. This man could make big movies, and they could work. Since then, Aliens has become a classic piece of the modern sci-fi canon, paving the way for sequels, spin-offs, and imitations.

At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, cast members Lance Henriksen, Bill Paxton, Michael Biehn, the retired-from-acting Carrie Henn (a.k.a. Newt), Paul Reiser, and Ripley herself, Sigourney Weaver, were joined by producer Gale Anne Hurd and Cameron for a panel to discuss their massively successful and influential work with Films That Rock.

Interestingly, the panel starts with Cameron and Hurd discussing the trick of pulling off the Alien Queen, a feat that required a test before they »

Comic-Con 2016: Watch the Aliens 30th Anniversary Panel

24 July 2016 10:47 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The Aliens 30th anniversary in Hall H was a real treat for fans at Comic-Con on Saturday. While the cast have been getting together for conventions recently, James Cameron and Gale Anne Hurd joined Sigourney Weaver, Bill Paxton, Paul Reiser, Carrie Henn, Michael Biehn, and Lance Henriksen to share behind-the-scenes stories and reflect on the movie’s importance 30 years after its release.

For die-hard fans, there’s a lot here that’s already known. That said, it’s great to see this group together, and the love they have for each other and this movie. And there are some really interesting moments here, such as clarification on how the Bishop knife trick was accomplished and previously untold stories about Newt’s cocoon scenes.

Overall, it’s well worth a watch for fans of this movie, and it sounds like there’s still a glimmer of hope that we’ll see »
