Just watched Ore. Enjoyed that.

Haven't checked the cast list but the woman that was hugged and went back up in the lift looked just like Abi Franklin from Coronation Street  ;D

This is interesting. I did not know Fox had prescribed "stages" for each of the shorts, so that they fitted into an over all arc.

They haven't as far as I know.  What I meant was - it's the scene in the shuttle in Alien, or on the Sulaco in Aliens or on the Betty in Resurrection.  Stuff has gone down on the ship we see breaking up and the film is what happens when the characters think they've escaped.

Yeah, as Ridley Scott would say;

"So here I thought, an end, on an end, on an end and on an end. Brilliant."
Seen previously, the Alien surviving onboard the Narcissus, Sulaco and surviving a furnace.

Oh, I see. I completely misunderstood you before, didn't I? LOL

And yes. You're right. Good call.

Just watched this again.

The actress playing Hanks is fantastic.

Meh...so what all we are gonna get is rehashing of parts of the same story that we have already seen, only with inferior actors? I've yet to be impressed with any of these.

Its pretty obvious that we will not seen much of the creatures in any of these. Either for legal or budgetary reasons. Which makes these even less appealing to me.

Just watched this. It's by far the best of the releases so far, in my opinion. Well shot, well acted, and with good use of limited cgi.

The only problem with this short is they spelled "or" wrong.

It's the anniversary of the first film.

The money's not there, and we're not supposed to see much of them because they're in the spirit of the first movie.

I don't get it.

Because it's an awful joke. That's below Dad Joke level. Way below. Disappointed.

Completely disagree. Containment does feel a little like that, but the rest, no. That said, they are supposed to evoke the Alien sensation and I think they're doing great.

People also have to remember these things were made with $35,000 and aren't exactly big screen productions. Personally, aside from the one, I've been really enjoying these Shorts and they've made so much with so little.

Yeah, I feel like some people need to bear in mind what these productions had to work with.

A tiny budget and amateur crew don't forgive all their faults, but I'm gonna give them a lot more credit than if these were coming from a proper film studio. Considering what little they had to work with all of these have impressed me in one way or another. And Specimen and Ore have been downright remarkable.
