I find it disturbing that in all the Alien universe movies, they think it's acceptable to LIGHT THEIR FRIENDS ON FIRE to end their misery. That's gotta be the worst way to die

I think i'd still go for an Alien through the chest. At least it's sensational

And probably much quicker than burning to death ... although the part that leads up to the chest-bursting looks awfully painful.

Probably ought to spoiler other Alien movie stuff... although the movie is sorta crap...

 
Do you mean Ripley as she did a Smeagol into Mt. Doom? She almost seemed to enjoy that little alien though.

They kinda bonded for a few seconds there.

I thought that was so lame. Oh, nice timing! It would've been cooler if the heat from the lava somehow made the chestbuster panic and come out squealing into it

Nope, the cocooned woman the Marines find in the second one.

after searching on youtube for about 15 minutes, i finally found it:

Aliens Space Marines colonial marines - YouTube

it's at about the 2:07 mark.

someone decided to put a horrible music track behind it, so turn the volume down.

At least it's not "Bodies" by Drowning Pool.

If infected-Holloway wanted to be put down (he seemed to welcome his bbq-ing), why not just take his helmet off instead? Asphyxiation is a bad way to go, but it probably beats being burned alive.

Also, when Shaw uses Vickers' personal med-pod thing to have her alien c-section, why is it calibrated for a man? This really bothered me.

(After thinking about more, maybe it's meant for Weyland? That makes sense, but I prefer my initial theory: Charlize Theron is a man!!)

Ya, it was definitely meant for Weyland. That's why someone refers to it as a bypass machine at one point

i was hoping for this too. guess torching him scored better with test audiences.

Interesting theories on the movie. Can't wait to see a director's cut

Charlize looks like Sharon Stone and Fassbender looks like Draco Malfoy.
