Some of the recent Star Wars movies haven’t been my favorites, and at times they’ve been downright boring to me.
I tell you what wouldn’t be boring – a movie that had Vader and some stormtroopers fighting against xenomorphs.
The original Alien movies were definitely rollercoaster rides in their own right, but now you can go for a ride on an amazing Alien themed thrill ride, courtesy of Hin Nya. He built the elaborate ride using amusement park construction and management simulator Planet Coaster.
Out of all of the stages of xenomorph development, I think the facehugger is the nastiest. This disgusting creature not only has eight creepy, crawly, boney legs, but a snake-like tail, and a gross mouth that’s ready to stick its tongue down your throat and implant its egg into your belly.
I think glass is one of the most amazing art mediums out there. It’s really difficult and dangerous to work with, but in the right hands, it can create amazing, intricate forms. If you’re into collecting art glass, but want something a little different, then check out these sculptures I spotted over on Etsy.

With the new Alien movie Alien: Covenant headed to theaters in just a couple of weeks, the Alien buzz machine is starting to heat up with all kinds of cool stuff. One of the more awesome things I’ve seen so far are these Reebok sneakers, which are inspired by the big face-off between Ripley and the Alien Queen in Aliens.
I remember the first time I watched Aliens back in the day, it scared the crap out of me. I also remember the cool armored personnel carrier that the colonial marines wheeled around in. That thing had seats in the back and a big laser turret on top to blast xenomorphs.
I can remember to this day how scared I was the first time I watched Aliens growing up. That movie was so cool I couldn’t look away, but I certainly didn’t sleep much that night. I remember ol’ Brown Bess from the movie, even though that rifle didn’t save the Marines.
Remember that cool watch that Ripley wore in Aliens? It’s the Seiko Giugiaro 7A28-7000 and it is being reissued for a limited run. I always remembered that watch because it had a cool futuristic look. It was designed by famed car designer Giorgetto Giugiaro – who also designed the DeLorean DMC-12 among other things.
One of the scariest creatures in all of science fiction is the Xenomorph from the Alien series. That creepy creature with its double mouths only wants to kill you. It will kill you even after you kill it, thanks to its acid blood.
The most memorable thing for me about Alien and all the other films in the franchise isn’t the queen alien, it’s the facehuggers. The thought of something laying eggs inside of you that then eat your guts and burst out of you is creepy as hell.
Aliens is one of those classic science fiction/horror films that we all know and love. There are plenty of Aliens action figures on the market already. In fact I talked about a gigantic Xenomorph queen action figure a few weeks back.
When you are stalking down the halls of an abandoned space station during the day, killing acid bleeding aliens and trying to relax at night, you’re going to need a beer at some point. You could open the beer with your teeth like some sort of dentally-challenged frat boy, but you will need those choppers for steak at some point.
Aliens fans may recall Bill Paxton as Private Hudson, the guy that talked all badass until the Xenomorphs showed up. Then he was all like “Game over, man! Game Over!“ If you are a fan of the Private, some new action figures are over at ThinkGeek you might want.
Perhaps the most famous scientist alive today is astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson. He has his own internet meme and is the host of the major network TV show Cosmos. Tyson recently talked about alien contact being the next frontier.
