Kids And A Sock Puppet Recreate The Chest Bursting Scene From Alien

fb share tweet share

There’s something inherently funny about kids reenacting movies, especially movies that aren’t particularly appropriate for younger audiences. Do they really understand what’s going on in the scenes they recreate? Not entirely, to be sure. Take this video, for instance, in which a group of precocious youngsters present their take on the infamous chest bursting scene from Ridley Scott’s Alien. There are some nuances and implications they don’t grasp, but that’s not going to stop them from having a damn good time doing it.

Aliens And RoboCop Retold As Raps

fb share tweet share

Aliens and RoboCop are two of the best science fiction movies of all time, each a juggernaut of awesomeness in their own way. But you know what they’re missing? A British guy recounting the storylines via rap. Wait, come back, just give it a chance! A YouTuber named robomayhem has created long rap videos over footage from the two movies, with selected dialogue used as lyrics. In other words, he’ll be rapping, then he’ll drop in a line of dialogue to complete the rhyme. I know, it sounds awful, but it becomes sort of transfixing after a bit. The guy’s lyrical skills aren’t any threat to Eminem or anything, but there’s something oddly entertaining about seeing how he works in the various lines of dialogue. And I was going to detract points for going into the events of Alien 3 at the end of the Aliens rap, but then he ended it in a way that made me chuckle. Here you have it: the Amazing Aliens and RoboCop raps.

Are Alien Death-Rays Killing Canadian Cows?

Werner Bock, a Canadian farmer, is being charged with not giving his cows adequate medical attention on his farm in New Brunswick. He blames the death of his cows not on malnutrition but on alien death-rays.

Bock claimed during a court hearing that there was a Royal Canadian Mounted Police conspiracy out to get him and his animals and the lost of over 200 cows over the past 10 years is not his fault. Bock states on his Youtube videos that his cows were victims of a death ray or alien weapon.

Alien And Predator Celebrate Wedded Bliss With Cake

fb share tweet share

I’m not quite sure the whole Aliens vs. Predator thing originated. I know the two species were squaring off in the comics long before they duked it out onscreen. And then there’s the infamous “xenomorph trophy” scene in the end of Predator 2. But regardless who first had the idea that those two should try to kill each other, the idea was persistent enough to lead to two different (underwhelming) movies. After all this time, though, has anybody stopped to ask the Predators and the Xenomorphs how they feel about this whole feud? Are they fighting because they want to, or because they feel like people expect them to? And could a peace finally be brokered between the two, if only there were some symbol they could unify behind? A better-fated, extraterrestrial Romeo and Juliet, if you will. Sure, maybe it’s a long shot, but if we can find a Predator with romantic intentions toward a Xenomorph, we’ve got the perfect cake for the wedding.

Watch Newt And Ripley Sing In Aliens: The Musical

You know what James Cameron’s Aliens really needed? It’s a nice little genre movie, to be sure, but what really would have made it something special is Newt and Ripley singing a song together at the end. Well now the internet has answered all of your prayers and given you just that, with Aliens: The Musical.

New Aliens: Colonial Marines Game Trailer Is Heavy On The Atmosphere

fb share tweet share

In a way, the games industry has been making Aliens: The Game over and over for years now. So many of the tropes of first-person shooters, especially those with a science fiction setting, either pay homage to, or are direct rip-offs of, the incredible suspense and atmosphere created by James Cameron’s 1986 film. Sometimes the results are amazing, and sometimes…not so much. While there have been plenty of games set in the Aliens universe (or its awkward fusion with the Predator universe), next year gamers will finally get to play an honest-to-gosh in-canon sequel: Gearbox’s Aliens: Colonial Marines. Set for release on February 12, 2013, the game opens in the aftermath of Alien 3, putting you in the boots of a group of marines sent to investigate what really happened to the crew of the Sulaco after its ill-fated expedition to LV-426. Based on this latest trailer, Colonial Marines should be an intense experience.
