In our first Patron-Exclusive podcast, we’re continuing the Alien franchise with James Cameron’s Aliens, the pluralized sequel that shook the world! Sigourney Weaver returns as Ellen Ripley in an Oscar-nominated role that pits her, a team of memorable space marines, and a young orphaned girl against an entire hive of deadly Xenomorphs, and it’s even better than the original! Tune in on the Cinemaholics Patreon to hear us discuss the brilliant character interactions, effective and efficiently-produced scares, and even the deeper implications on the potential of humanity!
NOTE: Toward the beginning of this episode, I incorrectly state that The Terminator was James Cameron’s first movie. This is incorrect; it was actually Piranha II: The Spawning, which sucks!
Music from Aliens composed by James Horner
Next time on Game Over, Man!, we’ll be taking on a new beast entirely with John McTiernan’s 1987 action spectacular Predator!
