    Then they completely missed the point of the movies. The pacing was part of what made Alien especially so scary. The other being the fact that you rarely, if ever, get to see the Alien in its full form. The "less is more" approach works so well for Alien.

    I am so glad you enjoyed the movies, and I think your Alien Isolation experience is going to live up to the films.

    At first, Prometheus was going to be a true prequel to Alien, but then they changed the story and its focus. So it's more like: It's a different story set in the same universe as Alien, and set about 30 years before Alien, but it's only loosely connected, largely because of the Engineers. However, that all said, I loved Prometheus, and look forward to the next film.

    I wonder why people dislike Prometheus so much. I think it's a great addition to the series. Glaf they're making Prometheus 2!

    "Prometheus 2"? Awesome! I dug the first one a lot. As an "Alien" fan, no, I wasn't 100% satisfied, but I knew it just took place in the same universe and not the same continuity. But as an overall film fan, I was 100% satisfied. Great flick. But I've yet to see a Ridley Scott film I haven't liked But, I've also not seen "Kingdom of Heaven" or "Robinhood" yet...

    Those are both good movies in my humble opinion.

    And yes! Bring on Prometheus 2!

    I think Ridley Scott is pretty much trying to retake the Alien universe.

    Part 2 of the Alien marathon I'm doing with a friend. Tonight we watched Alien 3 and Resurrection. And yes, I was well aware about the quality of these movies. Which helped me limit my expectations to a level these movies become somewhat enjoyable.

    Unfortunately – again- a few unexpected guests came over. And since the English for hearing impaired subtitle’s wouldn’t work for some reason I missed about half of Alien 3. I’m definitely going to re-watch them sometime at my place in silence with some headphones and pick up everything I missed.

    It’s true what you guys said. In my earlier post about Alien and Aliens I pointed out the distinctive Alien style the first 2 movies have. The look and feel are what makes those movies ‘Alien’. It’s too bad that neither Alien 3 or Resurrection have it. Cause I thought that was what made the first 2 such amazing movies!



    Now on to some questions for those among you who have seen these movies as well.



    Next in the marathon are the 2 Alien vs. Predator movies. Thanks everyone in the Alien: Isolation topic for suggesting to watch the movies first. As a sci-fi fan I’m ashamed I never thought about watching these movies. I think they’re awesome! Isolation went from a game I like to try because of the interesting gameplay to a game I want to play because I love the Alien franchise! I think I’m even going to get Colonal Marines! (Now that must say something)

    My top 5 goes like this so far:

    1. Aliens
    2. Alien
    3. Prometheus
    4. Alien: Resurrection
    5 Alien 3

    3 and 4 might switch after I’ve seen Alien 3 again. I really felt like I missed a lot because I could barely hear what they were saying.

    I'll give it a go...



    I'm sorry your viewing experience didn't go so good. Hopefully you'll get alone time at some point. It does sound as though you missed some crucial dialogue.

    Thanks, I thought you'd be the one to help me out again!
    That really clears things up around Resurrection! I wonder why the BluRay release doesn't have the 'official' ending though. According to Google it's the 'special edition' that doesn't have it. The dog in the beginning was also changed to a cow.

    And thanks for the list. I got home around 2:00 in the morning yesterday...today. Was to tired to research Wikipedia. Too bad not all books have entries, but I'll figure it out.

    Hmm... I could be wrong about the director's cut ending to "Alien 3" then. I'll admit it's been a few years since I've watched it. When I watch that movie I watch the theatrical cut. It makes more sense to me.

    Oh well. It's something to look forward to when I'm rewatching it. Speaking of which... I went to a 'goodwill' with my sister. It's not my favorite goodwill because they're really expensive. But we got a shards-ton of store credit so we might as well use it. I went straight to the wall of DVDs and ran into Aliens! I was so happy until I inspected the case a little more and found out it was a bootleg.



    However in another row I found an official Aliens. And an AvP! Which was again a bootleg. But in a different row stood an official one! So yay! But, but... not done. The last row had Alien + Predator! And because of the credit all for free.

    I actually wanted to hunt down the BluRays me and my friend rented for our marathon. But this is fine too ^^

    "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For". It sucked. Nowhere near as good as the first one. Over half of the original cast didn't come back. And I mean the ones that are still alive.

    You're Not You

    Beautiful movie based on the book of the same name. I saw the trailer when I went to another movie. It's about a woman, Kate, who has ALS and is taken care of by Bec, who can't even take care of herself. But she's the only one who doesn't treat Kate like a patient.

    It reminded me a lot of the French movie Intouchables. No offense to Frenchmen here, but French has zero emotion in movies. There's too many words to fit in one sentence, which is one of the reasons I couldn't enjoy it much. This one however was in good 'ol English. Emotion! So much emtion in fact that the entire audiance in the cinema was like:



    Great movie. Wouldn't be surpised if it gets an Oscar.

    Actually, I'm not that much excited to this film. But I like this one so much, I can't numbre how many times I have seen. < Pride and Prejudice>

    "VH/S". It's a horror "anthology" film that has about 4 or 5 20 minute long segments. It was pretty terrible except for the first one. If you ever get the chance to see that segment, I do recommend it. I think it was called "Amature Night" and it was great. And for the guys on here: NEVER take a pretty lady that only says "I like you." home from a bar. NEVER. No matter how pretty she is, it's not worth it.

    Couldn't resist another viewing of Cabin in the Woods.

    I think this could become a Joss Whedon classic.

    Whoa, forgot about this thread!

    I had the joy of watching a couple of flicks with my Dad on Father's Day last week, and one of the films we watched was "Starship Troopers". He'd never seen it before. He's a veteran so he tends to try and avoid war movies. But it was on and he got in to it. The parts where everyone was at boot camp put a big smile on his face. You could tell it brought him back to what were, for him, good times. It was pretty awesome to watch him watch it. And he knew at the beginning of the first battle sequence what the outcome was gonna be. As soon as the first dropship launches, and the Sergeant says "Remember your training and you will make it back alive!" he said: "Yeah, they're ed.". But he dug it. It was awesome to watch that with him. And it's a cool movie.

    "The Pyramid". Follows an archiologist and his daughter Laura(!) as they discover a new pyramid in Egypt. Upon investigating it, they find an ancient evil in the depths...



    It's a great idea for a horror flick, but man the acting is bad. It is entertaining, but could use a different cast and director.

    I caught one of my all-time faves on cable the other night, and it sucked me right back in: "11:14" - Absolutely vital that you watch from the beginning though.

    One of those rare movies that has you thinking "I cannot believe the &#!% that went on in this flick!" afterward. Like "Blood Simple," "Romeo is Bleeding," "Triangle" (the "Triangle" with Melissa George in it,) "Brick," etc. - just totally unexpected, off-the-wall bizarre, but logically-tight stuff that leaves you slack-jawed and wondering what the hell just happened.

    Man, I got halfway through that a couple of years ago and had to stop watching for some reason, then never got back to it. Must finish it some time. I was really digging it.

    I started a blu ray collection this weekend and was probably more excited than I should have been to find "The Rocketeer" on blu ray. I hadn't seen it since I was maybe 10 years old. Thankfully, it's not one of those movies from your childhood you remember being amazing then watch it years later and realize what a pile of crap it is (I'm looking at you, "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3"!). It holds up incredibly well and I got into it just as much as I did when I was a kid.



    The special effects hold up pretty good considering how old the flick is, and my God how gorgeous is Jennifer Connelly in 1940's attire? Even to this day she's stunning. I swear she doesn't age.

    And Timothy Dalton was awesome. He is so good at playing a total bastard.

    I have that film on a laser disc from way back.

    I really enjoyed it - and you are perfectly correct about how well the special effects stand up and how nasty Dalton's character was.

    Currently, I am hooked on Kingsman. It's Bond crossed with the 1960's UK TV series 'The Avengers' and The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

    Sheer brilliant enjoyment.

    ^^^ What kind of special features does the Laser Disc have? There's absolutely nothing on the blu ray, not even a trailer

    It's been a few years since I played the LD - my old player is a little cantankerous these days, but I have a feeling it had the US release trailer with it.

    There wouldn't have been much else - it came on one double-sided, 12" disk in long-play mode.
