QuoteI figure a mad perfectionist like Cambo wouldve had a little hose spurting acid rigged up to it otherwise.

Yeah but the same mad perfectionist would have glued the spike back on, surely?
Assuming he was directing the model unit.

Back onboard the Nostromo, Lambert's helmet light is off in one shot in the airlock.

I noticed two things

Alien

In the first film I decided to focus on Ash and his behavior towards the discovery of the Xenomorph. Since it's revealed he's an android trying to ensure it's survival over the crews. Suddenly all of his actions are more clear, especially when telling Ripley not to go after them, or when he lets them in without authorization, he didn't forget who was in charge he just didn't care.

Aliens

In the sequel when we get close up shots of Hicks falling asleep it also cuts back to Hudson bragging about how badass they are. While he does this we see Hicks clearly awake while Hudson is talking. It's something I though was kind of funny.

I like how Ash continues to stare at the scorch mark left by the testing of the cattle prod. It's as if he disapproves of Brett's casual treatment of the Nostromo - like himself, another piece of company property.

The Eighth Passenger

In that same scene, when Dallas tells Parker he doesn't want "any heroics outta him", is Ripley desperately trying to suppress a smile?

Yes. If you listen to the raw production audio track, Ian Holm / Ash laughs at this.

Could have sworn you can faintly hear it in at least one cut of the film too, although buggered if I know which one.

I was just walking and suddenly a thought occured in my head: Alien 3 is so contrary to Aliens that even movies' pallettes are comprised of opposite colours: while Aliens is strongly associated with cold blue Alien 3 is mostly hues of warm orange and brown. I never realised that before

The Eighth Passenger

Something I've known for a while now (although some people might not be aware of it), you can see the spacesuits Ridley and Derek Vanlint's kids wore in the space jockey and landing gear scenes in the locker room where Mr. Jones is hiding.

Predator@Alien

There is a spoiler in Alien 3, which tells us how the Alien is going to die. I had never made the connection before ! When the fire trap fails and Dillon activates the sprinklers, a seal cracks from the heat shock. A little teaser of what awaits us at the end ^^'

You saw that ? ^^'

It's a nice bit of foreshadowing, indeed

Maybe the severed part of her tail morphed into the egg.

I know this is months old, but I just spit Dr. Pepper Zero on my keyboard...lol

During the landing sequence in Covenant, when lander hits the atmosphere there's a moment when one can hear Mother's voice amongst crew chatter saying: "Recommend mission abort" which I thought was weird
