Maybe in the 57 years between the films some paperwork got lost and the alien reports was forgotten in some archives.


More likely that the company folk who sent the Nostromo to investigate the alien beacon and gave Ash his orders had all passed away during the 57 years Ripley was in hypersleep.None of them were around when Ripley was rescued but it was after reading her reports that Burke sent orders to have a small team investigate the derelict.

He knew that if Ripleys story was just crazy talk then no harm done,but if the team sent to check out the derelict were infected then there was potential to capture the Aliens and turn them into valuable weapons commodity.There is no evidence to suggest Burke was working alone though(evil Bishop was just telling Ripley what she wanted to hear at the end of Alien3.

There is nothing within Aliens that suggests Burke wasn't working alone. Regardless of what is said and done in subsequent films, in Aliens the implication is that Burke is the one who set it all up. He wanted a small enough team not connected to the Company so he could reap the rewards. If the Company knew about it, or was behind it, if would be consider their property, killing the need for Bruke to take the action he did.

That was freakin' brilliant. The word bitch was surely just invented so it could be used in this movie.

That third pic - the spacesuit - isn't from ALIEN it's from EVENT HORIZON. Still cool though.

There was no description to it, and when I saw the lights on the side of the helmet I thought it was the Alien one. Never mind!

there have been dozens of games (arcade, PC, console etc.) based on ALIENS and it's sequels and spin-offs but there is a game that has been in it's own 'development hell' for quite some time now that I reckon, if done properly, should capture the spirit of Cameron's film and it finally looks set to be released next year -
 

 
as far as I know, it will be available on all platforms and I probably should have posted this on the 'Joypad' section but we're all fans here. I can't wait for this game, I hope it's a good 'un...

Is there a set release date yet? It was supposed to have been out about 3 times by now!

It does look awesome, and with AVP out the beginning of next year, that could make for a couple of awesome games.


Was great to see some interviews with the cast in this months Empire, too. Even if a little brief.

I watched the quadrilogy over the past 2 days (well I have Resurrection on in the background while i surfed the web, its still fucking awful) and am so torn between which I prefer, Alien or Aliens, I adore both of them but at a push Aliens is an easier watch, its paced brilliantly, the only thing I dont like about the special edition is the scene where Newts parents find the derelict ship,always prefered that we dint see how the colony was invaded, but the sentry gun scene is great. Weaver is fantastic in her role "Thats not all! because if one of things gets down here then all this, this bullshit you think is so important? you can kiss all that goodbye!"  and the scene where she's tooling herself up in the elevator ride down to the depths of the atmosphere processor is the best scene in the movie, along with her "oh fuck this!" look when the egg opens in the queens lair and she blasts them with the flame thrower is awesome


I agree completely. I own the special editions of 1-3 and I pretend Ressurection never happened.

For anyone who wants to see the brilliant, loving French and Saunders parody :
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CcPSCMt56TE

Jennifer Saunders is spot on as Ripley. "Goddammit, that's not all!"

Thats a pretty awesome collection Snake.Do you remember the excitement when the special eition of Aliens was released on VHS many years ago.These days its all the rage but back then the idea that fans would get a special edition of anything was almost unheard of.I still prefer the theatrical cut though.

yeah man - I still have that VHS tape! I was sooooo excited when I got that! I remember it was in Summer 1992 and it had an ALIEN 3 teaser trailer on it.

ALIENS was on film4 last night (gee, I wonder why!) and even though I was knackered and ready for sleep, I found myself watching it. It's such a damn fine movie that I can't keep my eyes off it! NOTE TO GOD: blu-ray soon please sir?!

The problem with Aliens is that Cameron shot it on shitty film so that's why it looks a bit rough - not sure if Blu Ray is going to change things.

Apone was a great character and clearly respected and liked by his fellow marines - all we hear is a scream of horror to signal an end to his participation in Aliens
