Hey guys, Alan here. Sorry for not being able to do your show tonight. I had looked forward to it for so long and you know the reason why now. I had to write in and share my feelings toward my second favorite movie ever made. (1986's Aliens is the Best Movie ever Made) Did you ever wonder what had happened to Khan after he was left on Ceti Alpha 5? I know I lost may a sleepless night wondering. Just kidding. When this movie came out back in 1982 I have to admit, I wasn't the biggest Trekkie out there. Sure, I had watched TOS growing up, but it hadn't made the impact that it has now. Not sure where I'm going with this I hope it makes sense when you read it back. I guess the whole Life/Death and the struggle with getting older and actions you take at the moment having ramifications on your future. Anyway did you know Kirk had a kid? Neither did I. Or Kirk for that matter. I don't remember him knocking boots with Carol Marcus in the show. Maybe it was after he banged the green haired chick or got turned down by the latest Yeoman assigned to him. Shit, with Kirk he could be the father of half the people in the galaxy. I wonder if he ever put his moves on Khan? He has some serious man titties there and his long flowing hair. Where was I going? He has an Emo kid with another bad perm. Just like Daddy. Seriously I wanted to smack the shit out of him. Choke him with the sweater tied around his neck. What a douche-bag. We should throw a Ceti-eel down his pants and watch him dance. (oh wait, the actor is dead now...never mind) Scotty is starting to beef up, Uhura's fro was more toned down Bones is Bones, Spock is teaching at the Academy and Kirsty Alley wasn't fat. That about sums up the movie (just Kidding again) This happens to be the best Trek movie of all time. It is always on my top list of things I rewatch. I can recite it word for word. Pisses people off when I do. This movie has everything I love in it. Even a just as good or better 'Sub Hunt' scene than "Balance of Terror" from the first season. Director Nicholas Meyer really knew what he was doing. Even if he never seen an episode of Star Trek before signing on to direct this masterpiece. The musical score that James Horner wrote sucked you into the story even more. I don't know about you, but every time I rewatch this I still tear-up at Spock's funeral scene. The whole scene with Scotty on the bagpipes and Kirk sucking back his tears makes me cry like a stupid baby. Shit, even Saavik was crying and she's Vulcan. I guess my final thought as far as this movie is, is that it just makes you want to watch the 3rd one right after so you can find out what happens next. Is Spock really dead? Is Kirk gonna hook back up with Carol? Why did Saavik's face change? Guess we'll find out next week. That's all for now...Alan
