Even if I didn't like the atmosphere and more slow pace of the first one, the second doesn't really do much in the way of story. It's essentially the first movie, but throw in a Queen Alien and a bunch of Marines. The story/premise is almost identical. The only difference is the first takes a space horror approach, while the second is straight-up action. I can't help but see the two as being virtually the same movie but executed differently.

That said, I preferred the second when I was a kid, but in recent years the first has edged it out. Alien is a "flawless" movie. Aliens (the extended cut) is almost there.
Oh yeah, and also:

July 4


Looks like I'm going to be spending it in the most American way possible:

Watching my backlog of obscure kung-fu movie DVDs.

Heroes of the East
Battle of the Warriors
House of Flying Daggers
The Bride with White Hair 1&2
Lady Snowblood 1&2 (technically a samurai movie, but w/e)
Red Cliff 1&2 (I've never actually watched the entire thing.  I just saw a bunch of clips on YouTube and ripped off all the Xiao Qiao scenes)
Come Drink With Me
A Chinese Ghost Story ('87)
Butterfly Sword




WUXIATHON HERE I COME

Is this good or bad?

It's been years since I've seen Alien 3 or Alien Resurrection but I found Jim Sterling's thoughts on/defenses of them interesting.

Winona Ryder

That's the only reason I ever need to give for why A:R isn't such a bad movie. Anything with Winona Ryder is A-OK in my book. Now excuse me while I go fap to more pics of her.

(I do agree with the review, A:R was outright hilarious at times and that was clearly intended.)

As far as hot females go, in that movie Winona had a great competition on Kim Flowers.

Here, for your naughty intentions  ;)

Winona Ryder introduced me to Arthur Miller.

If that scene thou recognizeth and hath seen the movie from whence it cometh, I need say not more.

Let me think...
(thinks for a minute)
No, I don't think I've seen that movie.
Which would it be? Now I'm curious...

I googled "Arthur Miller Winona Ryder imdb" and apparently it's a film called "The Crucible" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0115988/ the summary says it's about a woman accusing her ex-lovers wife of witchcraft. Presumably back when you could still be burned at the stake for that sort of thing.

No, I did not see it, but it sounds like a good movie.

Oh, I almost forgot. I finally watched Les Miserables, and I was highly disappointed by the music. And since it's a musical, I didn't like the movie.
Good story, beautiful aesthetic, great performances...
...but the music was out of place.

Nine. Moulin Rouge.
Those are good musicals with unforgettable soundtracks.

Nine! I love that!

Anyway, just watched Despicable Me 2. I prefer the first movie.
The minions are still cute. gelato~~~

I checked this out last year, after learning it inspired the likes of Final Fight, Bubblegum Crisis, and Megazone 23. It became a guilty pleasure really fast; last night was the fourth time I've seen it.  ;D It's basically a 50's action musical through the eyes of the 80's. So expect tough guys, bad dialogue, and rock n' roll everywhere. And a young Willem Dafoe in really weird vinyl suspenders.

Been meaning to see that. The opening musical number from Bubblegum Crisis seems to be ripped straight from it.

Walter Hill's The Warriors is one of my favorite movies (the original cut that is), so I hope his other films are of similar quality. I expect nothing but pure B-grade movie goodness.

I've got The Driver on preorder for Blu-ray. Hard Times is also available on Blu-ray but it's also a limited Twilight Time title, meaning one would have to pay $30+ to own it, no other options, and while it looks like a dece' movie, I'll probably just catch it on Crackle for free in dull quality.

It totally was ripped from it. Right down to the redclad Ellen Aim stand-in of a singer.

And ah man, The Warriors! Nice to see someone else who totally digs that flick. I'd have had less reason to go for SOF if not for The Warriors.
