ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
A fan tribute to the movie ALIENS. These guys have done tribute songs to similar films before: Terminator, Robocop, and Predator. The dudes behind 'em all are known as DJ Mayhem and Mouthmaster Murf. Both appear in The Anomalies and the DJ act The Farcical 3. (thanks, Antinous)
HOLY CRAP AWESOME. I would seriously pay upwards of $30 for a dvd of this stuff! I hope they do Avatar, The Big Lebowski, Lethal Weapon… and about a brazillion others!
Citizen Kane, Titanic, The Room, Jaws, Ferris Bueler’s Day Off…
THANK YOU! As a lifelong ardent fan of the film, this was the greatest related thrill I’ve had yet, second only to my first viewing of the original – a triumphant renting of the VHS after months of unsuccessfully lobbying my parentals to be theatre chaperones.
To the curious die-hard fan, a caveat: this retreatment is for you alone. No one else could begin to appreciate its 10-minute running length and the relative monotony of its musical accompaniment without having first experienced Cameron’s epic, bum-numbing director’s cut in its entirety. Nevertheless, as a comprehensive remix and retelling of our beloved film favourite, it is absolutely, utterly awe-inspiring (and an object lesson to James Cameron in the art of skillful editing – give these guys a job on your next screenplay, Jim – you need them!)
