What did you watch?
The usual retro stuff. Lots of DVR clearing of MY THREE SONS (Chip is
turning into a real tool. I'm not an advocate of corporal punishment
for children, but this kid needs a firm hand as much as Jake on TWO AND
A HALF MEN) and 77 SUNSET STRIP which are piling up on me. The main
Madre de Dios! What a train wreck of a movie!!
A friend of mine who loves the Alien stuff was lambasting this and I
decided to see what was what before I heard too many spoilers. I
needn't have bothered.
The FX were convincing, but that was about it. Why is the technology
wildly advanced over that the Nostromo would sport 2 decades later? If
David just now created the classic Xenomorph and headed off to a distant
colony world, how did they end up by the hundreds on a distant planet
decades or centuries earlier waiting to be found? What the Hell is his
*plan* for 3000 colonists and 2 facehuggers - I mean, can a planet of
nothing but Xenomorphs survive? How blatantly can they rip off Larry
Niven here, with Xenomorphs as Pak? How many times can a different
character say "my wife"? Who watched this and decided to throw in
gratuitous nudity of the prettiest girl in the cast with 5 minutes to go
in the film, and btw, thank you for the one good decision made here?
I then tried to watch The Hallelujah Trail, which I'd never seen any
part of, but it was trying way too hard to be cute. It's more of a lazy
Saturday morning flick.
