While we are on the subject of Alien....
« on: June 12, 2008, 05:11:52 PM »
In Alien: Resurrection when I saw it in the theater I distinctly remember Ron Pearlman making an "IronSide" joke to Dominique Pinon in the wheelchair. I even at the time leaned over to my wife and said "wow Ironside is still in reruns hundreds of years in the future".   That was on opening night in the theater. I have since watched it maybe 2 or 3 times since then with the last time being when I got the quad box when it was released. I think that line was cut or I have just missed it every time. Does anyone know if it that line is still in the movie and where it is?

Also, has anyone seen Lethiathan?  It's a b-grade mix of Aliens and The Abyss but the last scene is one of the funniest in cinema history

I vaguely remember watching Leviathan once, but I don't remember the last scene.

Oh and yes, I do think I remember that Iron Side joke happening.

I'll have to look it up on Youtube when I get off work.

Yep. There is also a comment about how K-mart bought out the Weyland-Yunti corp.

Brought to you by geek fandom darling Joss Whedon. So when fawning over Firefly, remember he's partially responsible for Alien:Ressurection.

  I thought this line sounded familiar, despite not having seen it in theaters (I know I know...the Alien fiend I am. I had a lot on my plate when the movie came out and never found time to see it). So I went and dug up my old VHS copy of Alien: Resurrection and, sure enough, the line is in there. I haven't had the chance to actually watch it off the DVD set, so I couldn't tell you if it's different.

"Ironsides" so maybe it wasn't an "Ironside" reference.  I just never catch it since the first time I saw it so I guess it is still in there somewhere..
