Okay, so, for pure entertainment value, this is one of the awesomest videos I have ever seen.

Darwin said Jesus was an alien. See? SEE?!

I wish I could disagree, but I like science fiction, and am therefore obsessed. Waitwait, I'm a tool of the global technocrats, yeah, that's the ticket!

:facepalm:

I felt my IQ drop a few points listening to him.

Taldor

I knew it! This whole time I knew it!

Spoiler:
didn't make it past the intro


Your call.

But when your picket line is mauled by a rampaging chimera with the DNA of Francis Crick and T.H. Huxley, genetically-engineered based on the designs of Dr. Moreau and the Weyland Corp., all bankrolled by the British monarchy, don't come crying to me!


Doodle, I may come crying to you, but it won't be for that reason. Like, ever.

But in all seriousness, I do hope that what little Alex Jones says about the movie is true. I've been wondering about the big dead dude in the space chair ever since I saw Alien as a grade schooler. (Look my parents too me too see Cheech and Chong's Next Movie too, and I turned out fine, okay?)

Hey Doodlebug where can I pick up my genetic modifications? I want to fly and stuff please.

Oh but I am really physched about this film.


I am psyched to learn the secrets of the Illuminati!

Shadow Lodge

I like that one of the old school Doctor Who companions is leading this expedition.

Spoiler:
The female Brit who seems to be the lead character is Elizabeth Shaw.


So that's what Rush Limbaugh does on his days off.


Doodlebug you will learn nothing of the Illuminati ...ever.


You shall not stop me from seeing Prometheus, false Anklebiter.


Oh we have our ways. But we will let you watch the film only you won't be able to see anything about the Illuminati since they are secret and don't want the stoodges of communism or socialism to know their secrets.


When Alex Jones is involved in a discussion, you know that whomever has to be responsible is one of THEM.


Bumpity bump.


It is funny, we were watching some of the Ancient Aliens series on Netflix today. We saw a lot of the stuff this guy was referencing. LOL

Osirion

Much more likely that humanity in general has no idea what it is doing.


That's what the global technocrats want you to think, Jal...

Maybe that's what I want you to think...


So you don't deny the existence of, or being, a global technocrat? Noted.


Oh shiznit!

The Illumanati are in this very thread!

Run, everybody, run!


I give Prometheus a C+.

The "main character" was annoying, the story was annoying and pedestrian.

Good special effects though. Special effects were perfect.

Maybe a B-.


The comrades didn't care for Prometheus. :(


I'd still see it and try to ignore the stupid people. It's cool to look at.

Andoran

Nothing new


where does it rank in the alien franchise? Third best?


Yes, that was my original placement.

But I liked the third movie, and now, after reading all of the haters' hate I'm going to have to watch it again.

Higher than I was the last time.

I'd put it way ahead of Aliens and Resurrection (and forget about AvP in this discussion). Alien3 could have been brilliant, but it is very flawed (moreso than Prometheus). Obviously nothing can "out-Alien" the first film, but for me personally I'd rather watch Prometheus again. So I'd settle on a close second.

Aliens is the best Vietnam War movie evah!!!


Fools! They have you believing they don't exist, even scoffing at the very idea. Right where they want you! FOOOOOOOLLLLLLZZZZ!

My personal ranking:
1)Aliens, it is just so much fun, who cares if the gun-turrets don't make sense with the number of aliens to colonists, it was a hoot.
2)Alien. Set the bar for creepy alien monster movies.
3)Alien^3. Gritty, dirty and a bunch of British guys biting it, can't go wrong there.
4)Alien vs. Predator. Did not like the quick incubation rate (like 5 minutes), but after that, it was still pretty good. The predators looked a little too wide for my taste, but not horribly so.
5)Prometheus. Great visuals. Stupid-suicidal characters are a bit of a turn off (I mean the scientists gathered in 2 days for AvP were better than the scientists presumably vetted for a space mission).
6)Alien Resurrection. I HATE Winona Ryder! And the space pirates were all sucky except for the wheelchair guy and the black guy and of course they kill the black guy for no apparent reason. Kick your boot off! Fall in the water and untie your boot and climb back out! WTF MAN!?
7) Aliens vs. Predator Requiem. The only one currently out on disc that I don't own. The whole delivery area pregnant women alien birth burst thing really squicked me out.

I'd quibble, but well reasoned.

Plus, Aliens has got Bill Paxton.

NSFW!

Personal favorites:

Why don't you put her in charge?

We've got knives, we've got big sharp sticks.

You're right, man, Bishop should go. Good idea!


Yeah, I love the "sharp sticks" comment.

Funny thing, I was listening to the commentary on AvP and Lance said that Cameron asked if he would have a problem crawling through a small enclosed space and as a great actor he said, "Nope." When they put him in there and sealed it behind him, it did freak him out a little.

I actually sat and watched that whole video. And at the end, I'm not much of a video game player, but I couldn't help but scream LEEROY JENKINS!

I did gain some respect for AvP after talking to Lance Henriksen about how hard they worked on that flick.

My biggest problem with it was as a fanboy (the Preds, as a group, put up less of a fight than an unarmed scientist). That, and Anderson tried to put way too many sub-genres in one film. It was like some crazy flesh golem of Alien + Aliens + Predator 2 + Cube + The Thing...

Alien3 could have been truly wonderful sci-fi. All the best parts of the actual movie are left over from that idea.

Say what you will about AvP 2, at least it knew what it wanted to be, albeit aiming low.
