Today is the day to watch Alien and Aliens. This may not be an original idea but I am realizing that it’s less a monster movie than I remembered (I think I was ten the first time I saw it) and more of a statement about workers getting royally screwed by the indifferent “man.” I do recall this theme is more overt in the sequels but those are set for later this aft. I am gathering that the orig. is just one really shitty office space, down to the cold coffee cups and fluorescent lights. Then again, I am on a lot of Benadryl.
