The Truth About Aliens

“Well, that took a lot of sorting out.”

My late brother-in-law Roddy’s hilarious, one-line encapsulation of ALIENS, delivered immediately the credits started to rise, strikes me as a perfect summary of not only the movie but James Cameron’s entire oeuvre, and those of most other filmmakers to boot. Maybe it’s the ultimate statement on all human existence.

Be that as it may, expect light posting here until the film fest kicks off. Then I should have plenty to say, although I’ll be saying some of it in person as I introduce the films in our POW!!! retrospective.
