And where there's been a mistake in dialogue transcription. And why Russ says on the 19th 'We're going tomorrow morning.' and then they're going the morning of the 21st.
Mainly I've just had a hard time not cringing at certain things that just don't, in my opinion only, need to be there. Ie The scientists being stereotypical stuck up assholes. Some of the Marines being a little off the rails with their attitudes. And the row that Russ and Anne have after the Captain arrives. They seem too over the top when the first two films are about really mundane, ordinary people thrust into wholely extraordinary situations.
I think a lot of that clashes with what we've seen in the films.
I think my main gripe is that, to me, Alien and Aliens are about horrific things happen to people we can relate with. When the secret spaceships, grand conspiracies and stereotypes rear their ugly heads I don't feel it's representative of the universe already created. Like way too cartoony. It's the same reason I'm not fond of Resurrection.
But, having said all that, I don't hate it. I'm just disappointed. And despite my disappointment I'm enjoying it.
Far better story than Sea of Sorrows, and on par with the first half of Put of the Shadows.
Bear in mind, I'm only halfway through.
