13 reminds me of Dr Strangelove, but I'm probably wrong. Man, now I wanna watch that movie. Netflix time! :D
Michael: BenDservermonkey on February 29th, 2008 05:08 pm (UTC)
Correct on two of 'em, but not 13.

You know, I need to watch Dr. Strangelove again though.

It's the only way to be sure.

I recall having a great Aliens discussion with someone either via LJ or some forums. It brought warm feelings to my heart. Also, never else did I hate Paul Reiser so much. Not really hate him per se, but his character. Of course, I do get angry at Mad About You from time to time.

Honestly, I have had the Alien Quadrilogy in hand no less than four times in the last couple of months. I should just bite the bullet and buy the thing.
Lulu-Girllulu_girl on February 29th, 2008 05:30 pm (UTC)
HA I'm not the only one!

Whenever I see Paul Reiser, a small part inside of me whispers 'you bastard.' haha! Ah well.

I only like Alien and Aliens. The rest don't exist to me. < sigh >

True, the first two were definitely the strongest of the series--and it's interesting to me how different each director's take on them was.

Now, 3 definitely had a lot of problems and considering the mess that David Fincher was left with, well it's amazing he got a chance to helm something else.

Resurrection? UGH! Even I can only forgive Winona Ryder so much.

But the Quadrilogy has two versions of each film. I guess I must be a quantity over quality person? .: sulking :.

Nope on #1 though it definitely sounds like it belongs in that movie.

Correct on all the rest, nicely done!
