This is the only place I can find to respond to Paul and Amy’s discussion about Alien. I was 21 years old and just about to graduate from college when I saw this film. I had majored in literature so of course knew all about rounded characters. None of that mattered when Sigourney Weaver triumphed in the end. A woman in her underwear piloting the space ship home, the sole survivor, the leader, the winner. Paul, I’m sorry, but you’re a man, and your preference for The Thing over Alien is just anti-woman. You really can’t understand the impact Ripley’s triumph had on every young woman I knew. The underwear was so important! The vulnerability was essential, but the type of underwear was a combination of blue collar and aspirational - only very slender women like Sigourney Weaver could pull that underwear off. Great podcast, btw!

I like the idea of inviting guests to talk about particular aspects of the film, but not having their...Read full review »
