Movieing On #13: Aliens

50 mins - Published Tue, Sep 11, 2012 by Breki Tomasson, Jack Marshall and Jon Shute

This is episode 13 of Movieing On. This week, we’ll be talking about the 1986 cult classic, Aliens.

The planet from Alien has been colonized, but contact is lost. This time, the rescue team has impressive firepower, but will it be enough?

In this episode, we discuss the movie’s place in the trilogy, other trilogies of note, strong female characters and James Cameron‘s penchant for making the military look like bumbling fools.

Movieing On

Movieing On was a project that we've wanted to do for a long time, and the pieces all fell together in March of 2012, when we began planning the first episode. Featuring some of the CSICON crew's most amazing people, we watch a movie from 1999 or earlier and discuss it.
