My head's in space recently...
Shame that BBC America
showed it in the worst quality imaginable...
You definitely need to pay attention at all times, or you'll miss more details than not. Some special f/x have aged worse than others, but man, what a great story!
It left a bad taste in my mouth because of what they did to the survivors of Aliens
. Even if it further expanded the legend of Ripley.
Alas, its story is an evil necessity for the next film...
Insanity Ripley rocks!
Personally, I found it more instense than the 3rd. And that swimming scene was amazingly done!
And now for something a little different...
Close Encounters of the Third Kind:
I can't remember he last time I cried the way I did when watching an alien/space movie, or any movie for that matter. The scenes, the details, the simple music... oh, the feels, man!
