9 hours ago
“We’d better get back, ’cause it’ll be dark soon, and they mostly come at night… mostly.”
Aliens plays this weekend (September 30rd and October 1st) at the Tivoli as part of their Reel Late at the Tivoli Midnight series.
Aliens is a great sequel though James Cameron chucked the creepy Ridley Scott atmosphere for a more action-oriented format. Set 57 years after the original, Ripley’s escape pod has been found, and she is returned to earth. Once she gets there, however, her story is discounted and The Company fire her for detonating her old ship. A few weeks later Burke, an employee of The Company, asks her to go with a group of marines to Lv-426 (the planet where she found the first alien), where contact has been lost with a colony of terraformers…
Aliens is a fantastic movie. It is quite different from 1 & 3 in the series, in »
