Something weird happened when I came to the UK. I tried a lot of beer, and most of it, I didn’t like. It wasn’t the room temperature of it, nor was it the lack of carbonation or its “flatness”. Putting it bluntly, the beers just weren’t interesting enough. Nothing struck me---good or bad---with a “whoa that’s different” moment. It’s like in older movies, where at a crime scene the cops shoo away onlookers, “Move along, nothin’ to see here! Nothin’ to see here!”
I wasn’t resolved in this opinion, but I was puzzled. What the hell is going on? We’re only separated by the Atlantic Ocean. How are the beer flavors and options so different… and so, honestly, lacking.
Well, months of tinkering (and tailoring and soldiering and spying, god that was so dumb) are finally starting to pay off. I feel so bad for the chaps at the Prometheus base camp for having dropped their inferior trailer right before Dispatch's. Lord knows their views are gonna suffer.
After you successfully reattach your head to your body following that amazing piece of cinematic wonderland, continue on below to see our measly trailer and tell us what you think.
I kind of like movies a whole lot, so I'd like to begin slowly cataloging my thoughts on all the shit I love. I thought it best to begin what will hopefully be a series of nerdlovefests with Aliens, one of the best scifi action movies ever made. And, yes, I mean the Special Edition/Director's Cut version of it, which may be two and a half hours long, but it's pretty close to perfect.
The original Alien is a great Sci-Fi Horror movie, almost a slasher movie on a spaceship, with the monster picking off the crew one by one. James Cameron apparently saw that movie and thought it'd be better to pit an army of those monsters against an elite human military squad, that fucking genius, and the result was Aliens seven years later. If Alien is a haunted house at a theme park, Aliens is the big scary roller coaster right next to it. Me, I like the roller coaster.
