3/27/2018

It’s easy to write off Alien Resurrection as the black sheep of the Alien Saga. Whether you love it or you hate it—or both at the same time—you can’t deny there’s a lot to talk about. In this riotous roundtable, Ryan, Patrick, Clara, and Dave revisit this crazy film and try to figure out what works and what doesn’t. Along the way, they deal with some pretty deep questions: Is Dave’s dad a prophet? Was Michael Wincott the inspiration for Christian Bale’s Batman voice? How much K-Y Jelly is...

At long last, our In Defense of Alien 3 miniseries has arrived at the final shooting script for Alien 3—a strange, wild thing that somehow pulled itself through years of development hell and emerged a dark masterwork.
