      Aliens have changed from one to a group, and movies have changed from creative to blockbuster

      From the first against an alien to against a group, but the continuity with the first seems to be a bit strange, the Weyland company sent people to check the colonized planet after learning the information from Ripley 57 years later. Alien ships, and the company directive for the first one seems to have been forgotten. After a gap of more than 50 years, the atmosphere of LV426 is breathable. After a long period of dormancy, Ripley's daughter has died. Therefore, a little girl is set as a...

      really unpleasant

      Please tell me why everyone died after being taken by the aliens, only the little girl at the end was taken away unscathed?

      Please tell me why Ripley insisted on trying to save the little girl when she knew she was taken away by the aliens, when the entire planet would be reduced to ashes in 20 minutes?

      In addition, at the end of the first part, how many people died, what is the logic of trying to save the cat when he had to leave and then two more deaths.

      After taking a selfie with "The Terminator", Cameron became famous~ He did not shy away from taking over the director's stick of "Alien 2"~~ Self-written and directed~ Not only did he perfectly continue the content of the previous episode, but also Detail and scale the aliens~ and create the image of the alien queen~ Unlike the first episode due to technical limitations, Cameron used a variety of shooting techniques and materials to make realistic aliens and post-rendering in 2. The technology,...

      Alien 2

      The comment was postponed for a few days, and I don’t know the mood at that time. Anyway, it was fear, otherwise. Many, many years ago, I watched the first "Alien" at Lu Xuewen's house. I remember the aliens burst out from the hearts of the team members, the machine guns that automatically locked and fired, and the heroine finally rushed the aliens out of space wearing only panties. cabin. The heroine of the movie ended up wearing casual clothes, but this time there was one more girl and a...

      Classic "Alien 2", my view of biological evolution

      Many biologists believe that reptiles and mammals are two different classes. And I think that reptiles may have evolved into mammals in large numbers. (After writing this article, I searched the wiki for information, and actually found "mammal-like reptiles", which is really a strong proof of my article).
      Birds should have evolved from flying reptiles such as pterosaurs, and there is no need to create a separate "Archaeopteryx". They use their body temperature to protect their eggs and...

      When I was in junior high school, when I was alone at home and saw the Marine Corps entering the colony, I was scared to pee my baby, and I haven't dared to read the latter part since then. This time, I finally defeated my inner demon and watched the most exciting second half. I had to admire Cameron's talent as a screenwriter and director. The film from almost 30 years ago is not only rare and old, but still makes people adrenaline rush. PS.B station has too many idiots, it's really stupid and...

      That little girl called too many times... The soldiers were reimbursed so quickly, but the handsome golden retriever soldier still survived. Regarding the biochemical man Bishop, I still think that he is carrying out the company's orders, maybe the Golden Retriever has been parasitized. The technical interface of the second part has evolved a lot than the first, and it is no longer too...

      86 years. . . This film has been ranked to this level, honestly, I will give a three-star rating, but respect that era, and a four-star...

      The outbreak of female personal heroism is often due to motherhood. The limelight of the first Alien has been completely robbed by the heroine, and the Alien is "fragile" like a bug in the Starship Fleet. Kashen can make any film into an entertainment blockbuster, adding some humanistic feelings, which is really...

      It's all that stuff, and it tastes very different. Switch to the attacker mode, and you can control all the trends. There are no unexpected surprises and the chain can't be dropped. Is this the...

    Behind the scenes gags

    Hicks was originally starred by James Lima, but a few days after the film entered the official shooting, Cameron replaced the role with Michael Bain. Director Cameron used "the difference in artistic viewpoints" to explain the problems between him and Lima. In the end Lima still appeared at the end of the film, wearing the same armor, and filming from the back, so it seems that you can't see the difference between the two actors at...

    Creative background

    James Cameron, the father of "Terminator", directs the film. Cameron’s self-written and directed film wisely avoided repeating the style of the first episode. It moved the battlefield of people and aliens from a single spaceship to a huge space base, and reinterpreted it with its unique action film style. This horror story happened in space. Walter Hill is a writer and director that Cameron admires. He has no intention of getting...

    Shooting process

    Producer Gail Anne Hurd decided to shoot the film in England because it would not only save money, but also because of the continuity of the film. Most of the technicians who have filmed "Alien" live in England, and they laid a solid foundation for the film. Cameron believes that the appeal of the film lies in its ability to use people's imagination, such as dealing with alien weapons in the film. Cameron said that he did not want to...

    Evaluation action

    Ridley Scott created darkness and claustrophobia in the first episode. Compared with the mysterious and horror caused by the single alien, the alien army swarmed like a tide in the movie. It provides the kind of tense and depressing impact, and also provides a platform for the movie to create intense gun battles and bloody scenes. In short, "Alien 2" transformed the series of aliens from a novelty of aliens into the surprise of alien...

    Movie quotes

    • Private Hudson: [frightened] We're all gonna die, man.

    • Sergeant Apone: Hudson, run a bypass.

    • [Burke greets Ripley at the hospital after she has been rescued from hypersleep]

      Burke: I'm Burke. Carter Burke. I work for the company. But don't let that fool you, I'm really an okay guy. I'm glad to see you're feeling a little better. They, uh, they tell me that all the weakness and disorientation should pass soon. It's just natural side effects of such an unusually long hypersleep, or something like that.

      Ripley: What do you mean? How long was I out there?

      Burke: [stunned] Has no one discussed this with you yet?

      Ripley: No. But, I mean, I don't... recognize this place.

      Burke: [visibly uncomfortable] No, I know. Uh, okay, it's just that, uh, this might be a shock to you. It's long...

      Ripley: *How* long? Please.

      Burke: [after a pause] Fifty-seven years.

      Ripley: [stunned disbelief] What?

      Burke: That's the thing. You were out there for fifty-seven years. What happened was, you had drifted right through the core systems, and it's really just blind luck that a deep salvage team found you when they did. It's one in a thousand, really. I think you're damn lucky to be alive, kiddo. You could be floating out there forever.
