Aliens, has it really been 30 years?

Cast-of-James-Camerons-AliensAliens celebrated its 30th Anniversary at San Diego Comic-Con 2016 and Producer Gale Anne Hurd, Director James Cameron, Sigourney Weaver, Bill Paxton, Michael Biehn and others were on hand to discuss the film and to reflect on how the film industry has changed from the 80’s to today. I’m not sure I could count how many times we’ve bought this film let alone watched it. I mean with any Cameron you have the original release in the theater, then VHS, then DVD, then the boxed set, then the Director’s Cut with additional scenes, now BluRay, and I’m sure there will an anniversary set with interviews and commentary coming soon. If they print it, we’ll buy it! 😉

Here is the complete collection of Alien’s 30th Anniversary  Interviews:

Hurd & Cameron

Weaver & Paxton

Henrickson & Reiser

Biehn & Henn

I love this anecdote, Henn, who left acting and is now a fourth grade teacher, mentioned that a lot of her student’s parents show up to parent/teacher conferences with DVD’s for her to sign.*

Greatest Unscripted Movie Scenes

I hope you enjoy this link as much as I did. I love that some of the best scenes and lines in movies were ad lib, think about Casablanca’s “Here’s looking at you, kid”, or Aliens’ “Game over, man”, as the drop ship crashes into the planet, and try to think about Young Frankenstein without Gene Hackman’s “Wait, I was going to make espresso”.

For me, this is the mark of an actor who is truly in character, and it shows so much about a director who can recognize such perfection and keep it in the film.
