Don't worry, when we've all finished quoting TMWRNJ I'll deal with you later.

I still can't pass Golden Grahams in Asda without thinking of TMWRNJ.

The continuity on the Curious Orange with him getting increasingly more mouldy as the weeks went on is one of the greatest things in TV history.

πŸ‡΅πŸ‡± Steve G πŸ‡΅πŸ‡Έ commented on his own review of Aliens

He tries to stay calm and assess the situation. His only mistake was not explaining why they couldn't fire their guns. Mind you, as Newt would say, "It won't make any difference".

πŸ‡΅πŸ‡± Steve G πŸ‡΅πŸ‡Έ commented on his own review of Aliens

All I'm saying is that we need a dissenting voice who will speak up for him. I'm that dissenting voice!

πŸ‡΅πŸ‡± Steve G πŸ‡΅πŸ‡Έ commented on his own review of Aliens

No! He was an inexperienced officer plunged into a situation he didn't have enough info on, was screwed over by the company, and then redeemed himself heroically at the end! He was basically a decent guy at heart!

Serves him bloody right after he berated me over my Kubrick ranking list.

πŸ‡΅πŸ‡± Steve G πŸ‡΅πŸ‡Έ commented on bbbgtoby’s review of Aliens

In that case, I'm going to take this as a 10/10 and pretend I didn't read the text.

You tried and failed with the same trick on Ghost Protocol and Fury Road as well, mister.

This must be how you feel when I accidentally stumble across a mumblecore film.

πŸ‡΅πŸ‡± Steve G πŸ‡΅πŸ‡Έ commented on Windyblue’s review of Aliens

I only did :( x 10000 because I am in a good mood. Normally I would go into seven figures.

Thanks Jonnie! I think I've covered almost all of my absolute favourites now in terms of reviews but I'm sure there are one or two that I've missed.

πŸ‡΅πŸ‡± Steve G πŸ‡΅πŸ‡Έ commented on his own review of Aliens

Lollyfist - Thanks! Great comment as well, I really didn't feel lost at all in the times I saw Aliens before seeing Alien and I agree that the backstory could be explained as you suggested.

In terms of reviewing favourites, it's a tricky balancing act sometimes. For instance, I love…

πŸ‡΅πŸ‡± Steve G πŸ‡΅πŸ‡Έ commented on his own review of Aliens

Yeah, I rewatched that VHS of it until it wore out. I actually saw Aliens years before seeing Alien but I don't think the latter suffered at all from watching them in that order, it was still tremendous.

πŸ‡΅πŸ‡± Steve G πŸ‡΅πŸ‡Έ commented on his own review of Aliens

Lise - The Tree Of Life. What was that all about? ;) In all seriousness, though, that's absolutely fine, I hold no grudges! I would suspect you won't enjoy it nearly as much as Alien but I would be interested in your thoughts on it as always.

Andy - Thanks…

Cheers Julie! Judging by the date on this review it looks as though it's been well over a year since I last watched it so I'm due another viewing right about now, so I would imagine another review will be in the offing soon!

πŸ‡΅πŸ‡± Steve G πŸ‡΅πŸ‡Έ commented on his own review of Aliens

Thanks Aaron!

Definitely catch the original version. I prefer the director's cut but I am in a minority!

πŸ‡΅πŸ‡± Steve G πŸ‡΅πŸ‡Έ commented on his own review of Aliens

That's excellent, cheers! I love interviews like that with cast or crew members that are not 'stars' because you get insight you wouldn't get otherwise.

πŸ‡΅πŸ‡± Steve G πŸ‡΅πŸ‡Έ commented on DirkH’s review of Aliens

The extra scenes also include a part where Burke tells her what happened to her daughter, which I'm really surprised Cameron left out, actually. It also has the drone gun scenes in the corridors which really gives you a sense of what they are up against. I think it's well…

πŸ‡΅πŸ‡± Steve G πŸ‡΅πŸ‡Έ commented on DirkH’s review of Aliens

I'm one of the few people that actually thinks the director's cut is better, and that clocks in at 148 minutes. Have you seen that version, Dirk?

I can actually see your argument about the final third of the film but I think it's a wonderful piece of audience manipulation.…

πŸ‡΅πŸ‡± Steve G πŸ‡΅πŸ‡Έ commented on his own review of Aliens

Thanks for that, Julie, I hadn't heard of that actually. I'll give that a listen later, thanks!
