The Alien Franchise: Part Two (feat. Jaime Prater & Ryan Zeid) | Episode 63
Posted June 16, 2017
Ramp up the violence and turn down the storytelling; it's Part Two of our Alien franchise reappraisal! This week, we pick up with "Alien 3" and analyze why it's so fit for reclamation from fans and cinephiles alike. At the 24-minute mark, Chance is joined by the hosts of the Alien universe podcast "Perfect Organism." Jaime Prater and Ryan Zeid discuss why the narrative hardship of "Alien 3" appeals to them and why the cutesy self-awareness of "Alien: Resurrection" certainly does not. At 44 minutes, your hosts jump back into "Resurrection" and consider whether creative gore is enough to merit a "bad-good" rating. Finally, at 59 minutes, Noah and Chance debate whether the fact that "Alien Vs. Predator" is better than you might think is actually a good thing. It's six more hours of aliens and a lifetime of images you can't un-see!
