 fta:  The Big Lebowski is the Citizen Kane of movies, and a good lot of you can probably recite the entire screenplay from memory.

That's interesting.  I had always thought that Citizen Kane was the Citizen Kane of movies.

I'm confused.  Did the aliens represent the gay or the retirement of anti-gay established film making bowlers?

Geotpf: LesserEvil: Krymson Tyde: And what about The Shining?

Clearly about how Kubrik helped film a fake moon landing....

Danny here is wearing an Apollo 11 sweater rising from a launch pad. The moon is 237,000 miles from the earth, and he changed the room number to 237 for no particularly valid reason. There's much more....

I love that carpet.  Just wanted to share.


It really pulls the room together.

That's weird, I always saw Aliens as an homage to Scooby-Doo where in the end the villain under the mask was us as human beings meddling in things we shouldn't.

oh_please: I think you're confusing "conservatives" with "fundies"...most conservatives I know are fine with gay rights. And I live in one of the reddest states in the country.


Yeah, just 10 years after that same state turned out to vote for Dubya 'cos that foreign-lookin' John Kerry was gunna make er'body get queer married to each other. Don't act like the conservative movement has been down with homosexuals forever. I mean, they have, but only when nobody's looking.

WippitGuud: ertznay: James Cameron's Aliens, the godfather of sci-fi action movies

...And thus, with the very first sentence of the article, I stopped reading

You make the claim that there was another sci-fi action move before Aliens which set the standard?


Hating on Cameron has been the thing to do ever since Titanic.  Didn't you get the memo?

Well Aliens/Viet Nam is a stretch but they beat you over the head with the X-Men/gay thing.
