February is Alien month!

“This is Ripley, last survivor of the Nostromo, signing off.”

Alien is one of my all time favorite movies. Actually, all of the first four Alien movies are among my all time favorites. So we’ll be heading towards a month full of reviews and recaps of Alien stuff of all sorts.

In addition to looking at the movies we’ll talk about some deeper social issues connected to the Alien franchise (like feminist heroes and the depiction of the Other), and heck, I might even throw in some Alien fashion, decoration and/or architecture.
