A discussion of cult films by two guys located in a basement somewhere in the Pacific Northwest. Matt holds a B.S. and M.S. in physics, and works as an aerospace engineer. Mark holds a B.S. in biochemistry and works as a research technician... both are graduates of Snohomish High School Class of 91/92 respectiviely, none of which qualifies them to discuss film in any meaningful way... so... "caveat emptor" and all that.

"We're in some real pretty shit now!" Well, it's good to see that in the far interstellar future of mankind, the institution of the U.S. Marines is spreading its diplomatic subtleties far and wide, perhaps no better embodied by the memorable Pvt. Hudson character played by Bill Paxton in James Cameron's epic sequel Aliens. Matt obsesses over James Cameron's flair for far future gadgetry while Mark muses on the humor of Hudson, literally and figuratively. After 27 years, Aliens is a terrific sci-fi film that's stood the test of time.
