Superior Firepower The Making of 'Aliens': Essential for fans
I've always had a real hit and miss relationship with our Xenomorph friends. You see I think Alien (1979) is very overrated, I think Alien 3 & Ressurection were pretty medicore, that Aliens vs Predator movies were a huge let down and that the recent efforts have been very underwhelming.
However, Aliens (1986) would be in my top 100 movies ever made and I consider it a true masterpiece.
This documentary features fantastic interviews with pretty much the entire cast. Both interviews from the time it was made and in 2003 which gives a nice contrast. It provides excellent production stories and explanations on how the visual effects were pulled off.
Thought it stands at a hefty three hours I think that it needed to be, this way it could be thorough and thats what makes this documentary so watchable.
As a big fan of the movie I naturally found this fascinating and would advise any fans of the franchise to give it a go.
Sigourney Weaver comes off really well
Amazing backstage footage
Nothing springs to mind
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
Michael Biehn is to James Cameron what Johnny Depp is to Tim Burton
The minature effects guy is Ron Jeremys clone
James Cameron is a jackass
Is forcing a 10yr old to watch an 18 rated movie not illegal?
