Thanks to links in my Google Reader to this interview with Sigourney Weaver, I have been informed that yesterday was the 25th anniversary of the release of Aliens! Which seems like a slightly-belated good excuse to watch it. Other good excuses to watch Aliens: because it’s hot outside, because I haven’t watched it in a few months, because it’s Tuesday.
Come to think of it, it’s also been a while since I watched either of the first two Terminator movies.
Hey, world: how come we’ve got Alien vs. Predator, Alien vs. Terminator, Predator vs. Terminator, and Alien vs. Predator vs. Terminator, but no one has ever (to my knowledge) done a comic book or cartoon crossover where, through the magic of time-and-or-space travel, Ellen Ripley and Sarah Connor team up to kick ass together? Someone get on that.
