    I remember a short while back, that a radio host went to an elementary school, 2nd grade I belive, and he asked what the children's favorite movies are, expecting Wonder woman, or some other Disney movie. The kids said IT, Halloween, Freddy Kruger, etc. all hard R rated movies.. the host was gobsmacked.
    So yeah, sadly, kids are watching this stuff, usually parental negligence or that they just don't care, go sit infront of the boob tube while I ignore you..
    It comes down to parental responsiblity.. or lack there of.

    Let's remember when in the 70s they sold Alien toys to kids...

    Not just the 70s. Walmart has an exclusive line of Alien toys now.

    My Mom's currently in a rehab facility for a broken hip in South Carolina, and when I talk to her on the phone I can hear the staff calling her "Miss Gladys." It's definitely a thing down there. Kansas, I don't know.

    Well, it's not very comparable. Today it's considered perfectly ok for adults to collect toys and action figures, and Alien now it's a multimedia franchise that spawned kids-friendly videogames, comics and PG13 movie versions. At the time, they targeted these toys to kids who in theory weren't the designed audience for that movie. It would have been like making Exorcist toys!

    I can only assume either some extra scene/alternate take/extra shot. Will find out soon enough after people have seen it.

    I don't wish to sound too argumentative but this line is not geared towards collectors. It is produced by Lanard, who is best known for "The CORPS!" GI JOE knock off style line. These are not screen accurate or what not. It's pretty standard kid type fare of monsters and aliens.

    I'm not saying that the 70s it wouldn't be surprising; I think there were a lot in the 70s and 80s that did. Just that I don't think Alien has some how become more kid friendly since then.

    I’d hope the future is a Harm Reduction one, where all narcotics are legal and there is safe supply, along with services to treat substance abuse.

    Only the large Alien monster was released. Kenner stopped the line before they could release the 3 3/4 figures. That pic of the action figures is from Super 7’s recreation of that proposed line, marketed at adult collectors.

    Seemed like the same movie to me. Just some scenes have been brightened or lowered to make the black and white pop

    WB Didn't Want Justice League's Batman & Joker Knightmare Scene according to Snyder...

    Shock that WB wanted to leave out one of best parts of the film because WB are fucking awful.

    There was a follow up line from Aliens though, which included a variety of alien types (Crab, bull, snake, etc.) as well as a capture vehicle. Supposedly made for an Alien cartoon.

    Can't stop watching the Flash reversing time scene. It's such a beautifully filmed part of the movie and the music is perfection.

    Love that music.

    Henry Cavill and Fisher both liked the Snyder Cut. Fisher's comments make no sense to me. He claims the movie was about the human condition... the movie was about superpowered beings (and a rich guy) punching monsters in beautiful, but completely overdone, slow motion. There was absolutely nothing else to it...

    Have you ever heard of Weapon Brown? To be fair, it is supposed to be a parody.

    I've been thinking about it, and despite me liking pretty much all of his movies, Snyder has got to be one of the most technically incompetent directors that still gets big money projects! His movies haven't had any flow since Dawn of the Dead, the pacing is always extremely awkward, there is seemingly no point of view and we randomly bounce around timelines for no reason. His style is also EXACTLY THE SAME in every movie, with slow motion, messed up colors, and nonsensical musical cues. He is literally the least talented director in big budget Hollywood. Like I said, I like his movies, but damn his technical limitations are stunning!

    I’ve never had a problem with the pacing. It’s not like Nolan in Dark Knight Rises where weeks seem to go by without any indication.

    Not that kind of pacing. The pace of the movie itself.
