‘Aliens’ Movie Summary

They say age gives you wisdom. That is why Ellen Ripley is the wisest character throughout this week’s film, Aliens. Ripley has awoken from an unexpected 57 year hyper sleep. She returns to Earth to find that her young daughter is now dead of old age, that technology has continued to improve, and that no one seems to know anything that happened to either her or the crew of the Nostromo in the first film.

Ripley is ostracized and treated like the crazy cat lady of future. That is until some colonists on LV-426, the planet where the Nostromo landed on in the first film, stop communicating with Earth. Suddenly Ripley has use again. She is shipped off with a unit of Colonial Marines to investigate what happened to the colonists.

  1. Nice podcast. Lots of time spent on talking about all of Cameron’s films. Guess Patrick can’t stop complaining about Avatar, he did that in the inglorious basterds podcast as well. I’m not a fan, but I have no doubt it will be a massive success. Like I said before, it will make a billion in China alone. And I have trouble seeing it not making at least 400 million here. Using the ‘I don’t know anyone who likes avatar’ argument for why it will bomb is a bit flawed. I don’t know anyone who likes transformers. Or voted for trump. We are so far away from release, it’s hard to gauge interest. But once the marketing kicks big time a few months before release, trust me you will hear people express interest. Apparently he is developing some new tech for this as well. I’m sure the media will talk non stop about how groundbreaking it is in due time. betting against cameron is like betting against Tim Brady, not a good idea. And as far as terminator being like Halloween, I see more similarities to westworld 1973.

    1. I think Patrick and I dislike Avatar the same, but he’s more vocal about it. I have no doubt the movie will make tons of money; just like Transformers, which I think is horrible.

      And you aren’t the first person who’s mentioned to me that Terminator is more like Westworld, and there definitely are parallels. The main reason I say it’s more like Halloween is because in both movies, an innocent young girl was protected by an older, wiser man trying to save her from an unkillable force. Westworld was more about all machines rising up to kill all humans in a designated area.
