Off-Topic Discussion / ALIENS
« on: July 28, 2004, 03:30:11 AM »
Fellow Discussors (if there is such a word ?),

As a series I have to say that Sigourney Weaver in the Aliens series was brilliant.  Admittedly in this day of sensational graphics and 'special effects/affects', the 'alien mumma' make be regarded as - just ok.  But in my opinion, it was ground breakng stuff.  Sigourney plays a fierce but very femmine character. I regard Sigourney as my 'pin-up' actress (her and Jodie Foster).  And when I find a suitable poster of Sigourney, she will adorn my wall alongside The Outlaw Josey Wales (Clint - of course).

Aliens when released reminded me of: The Thing.  The original was by our modern standards passe but the newer release was a leap into the world of special effects.  This is a leap that Aliens took on the special effects ladder. But compare that to Van Halsing and you could regard Aliens as passe.

Any comments - anyone ?

See my profile I am a Newbie to this site so if Aliens has been done to death - humour me and comment anyway.  I may be a Newbie to the site but my history in the movie worlds of westerns, supernatural, sc-fi and CLINT goes back many a happy year or two - in my case.

Look forward to the banter.

Regards,

Wombat
