1. Juni Heftig, aber während du auf deinem Smartphone liest, passieren viele Dinge um dich herum, die du nicht bemerkst. Vielleicht ergötzt sich ja. Aliens – Die Rückkehr (Alternativtitel Alien II, Originaltitel Aliens) ist ein US- amerikanischer Science-Fiction-Actionfilm aus dem Jahr und die Fortsetzung. Wer sind die befremdlich aussehenden "Ancient Aliens", die uns angeblich seit Jahrtausenden besuchen? Forscher gehen der Frage auf den Grund.
I was excited to see a 30th anniversary reprint of one of the greatest movies of all time. Even more excited to see that there was a new documentary and some hints that this might even be a new transfer.
For anyone interested, it's not a new transfer. My Blu-ray player asked if I wanted to continue playing where I had left off after inserting the disc for the first time confirming my suspicion.
I haven't watched the "All-New Featurette", yet. However, I was disappointed to see that it's not on a physical disc; it's a streaming featurette available for "a limited time only", and if this isn't bad enough, it can only be streamed 10 times.
The inserted art is interesting, but shallow. It's presented without context or explanation. The All-New Featurette digital code doesn't even work. At the time of writing several others on the blu-ray.
I should note, if you don't have Aliens on Blu-ray and don't care for the other movies in the franchise or don't want to have the pox that is Alien Resurrection in your home , this would be a fine edition to your home video library.
I'm primarily disappointed that this is a reboxing of the previous release and one of the primary draws for fans of movie documentaries doesn't work as advertised.
I've requested a refund and will be returning my copy. This is not a review for the movie, which is excellent and highly recommended.
I'm just super frustrated that you only get the digital copy of the theatrical release and not the special edition. Extras are not available on digital either.
Also, the digital code I got was expired so I had to email Fox to get a new one. Even though I included a lot of info and screenshots, they asked for those exact same things and then made me jump through more hoops to get the movie.
I'm not adverse to physical copies. A little disappointed in this edition. The included concept art and comic book is extremely cool, but the Blu-ray is essentially the same Blu-ray disc sold previously.
The new documentary with James Cameron is not on the Blu-ray disc, you have to steam it from Fox's website and it's a limited time.
It doesn't support your TV. You'll have to cast it to your TV. There is no new or extended scenes, it's the same special edition scenes. Prime Video Verified Purchase.
Of the Alien trilogy if you don't count Resurrection , this is by far the best of them. James Cameron presents a seamless unfolding of Ellen Ripley's second harrowing encounter with the species that is out to consume every human it finds on planet LV In the first film, it was just one alien and one spaceship crew ordered to investigate.
This time, it is a whole nest of aliens, feeding on the human colonists who were sent by the sleazy company man played to the hilt by Paul Reiser to investigate a possible alien presence.
Sigourney Weaver gave a wonderful performance in the first film and tops it in the second as she struggles between the aftereffects of her first encounter and the rapidly unraveling circumstances of the second encounter.
It's made more interesting by the relationship that develops between Ripley and a young girl Carrie Henn who manages to survive the aliens' decimation of her family and colony.
Visually stunning but with just enough haziness in the alien scenes to give viewers the freedom to engage their imaginations in the experience.
The script is classic Cameron. The ensemble cast is right on point. Editing and scoring fit like hand in glove. This is great sci-fi entertainment.
One person found this helpful. One of my all time favourite films. Its still intense and enjoyable even today. And your heart still races even though you know exactly what's coming next.
Facehuggers still give me nightmares from time to time. But Hudson especially played by Bill Paxton is the absolute star for me - his acting is superb and all his lines memorable.
This was a great followup to the original movie. The story was well conceived and produced under excellent directing.
Watching this movie a second time under more adult eyes it's been a good 10 years the movie still has a good thriller quality to it based on action, great cinematic shots and tempo.
There are movies that I watched in my early 20s that I see now and am amazed that I thought it was scarey. This is not one of those cheesy B rated movies as the thrill is not gone from this action packed thriller.
I would recommend watching Alien, Aliens, and Prometheus as it makes for a very good trilogy with a meaningful story line. First of all, this movie is the sequel to the film "Alien".
This movie follows Ellen Ripley Sigourney Weaver as she returns to the planet where her crew encountered the hostile Alien creature, she was the only one to live from the movie.
What happens when they get on the planet is awesome, they encounter a whole colony of these Alien creatures, they use human bodies as a breeding incubator.
The reason there are so many of these creatures is that the planet has a colony of humans that are now dead or in the process of giving birth to more of these things.
Ripley finds only one little girl alive, the rest of the people are gone. They try to stay alive so they can get off this planet.
From to in Belgium , a large object with lights was witnessed by hundreds of individuals, including police, air force personnel and air traffic controllers, as in the video below.
During an eclipse in Mexico City on July 11, , a UFO was witnessed and filmed by hundreds of people as they gazed up at the sky. This story is so impressive that it is featured in National Geographic's " Secret History of UFOs ," which provides a neutral and important chronicle of the various legends and sightings over the past several decades.
In this regard, the former governor of Arizona, Fife Symington, said of the Phoenix lights phenomenon, which he himself witnessed: Eyewitnesses respond that such a claim itself cannot be sustained, as they know what flares look like, and these objects did not behave like flares.
Moreover, witnesses likewise take exception with the idea that the sightings are the result of Cessnas flying in formation.
I have communicated personally with Travis, and I am certainly in no position to label him a liar. Over the past few decades, several excellent researchers have followed the lead of the fringe element and produced insights into the potential reality behind the tales and the sightings.
Despite being ignored by mainstream media, these credentialed and credible experts have managed to evince effectively that UFOs are real, extraterrestrials are here and abductions are occurring, among other "alien" behavior.
Some of these "experts," however, may be disinfo agents, and this field is rampant with fraud and hoaxes, so, again, caution must be taken.
In , the respected scientist Dr. We're talking about generals, we're talking about airforce pilots, we're talking about governors of states, that claim, "Hey, this is beyond our understanding of the laws of physics.
Kean's book contains dozens of these sightings by numerous sober individuals with positions of authority.
My major knowledge comes from what I call the old-timers, people who were at Roswell and subsequent who wanted to clear the things up and tell somebody credible even though they were under severe threats and things - this was back in the Roswell days.
Having gone to the moon and being a local citizen out in the Roswell area some of them thought I would be a safe choice to tell their story to, which they did.
Even though the government put real clamps on everybody, it got out anyhow. And told them my story and what I know and eventually had that confirmed by the admiral that I spoke with, that indeed what I was saying was true There was an alien spacecraft.
Mitchell also discussed the Phoenix lights, saying "That wasn't our stuff," referring to human technology.
The former astronaut further stated:. Three humongous craft flew over Phoenix, very slowly in the middle of the night that clearly were not - I happened to be on the phone with people out there when that happened and have had pictures of it - clearly those were not, to those of us who know aviation and spacecraft, clearly those were not local stuff, home-grown stuff.
In response to Mitchell's implications that the government is hiding these facts, it was reported:. In a statement, a spokesman said: NASA is not involved in any sort of cover up about alien life on this planet or anywhere in the universe.
NASA aside, the stories coming from Russian cosmonauts have been around for decades, as this old "Sightings" program demonstrates. Space does not permit for all the accounts by pilots, both military and commercial, who have witnessed UFO phenomena of some sort.
There have been over 3, documented sightings of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena by military, civilian and commercial airline pilots. These observations span the entire history of powered flight.
Many of these cases come from declassified US government reports and investigations, international reports from official sources and the direct testimony of military and commercial pilots, air traffic controllers, and radar operators.
As concerns high-ranking experts, in September , a former Canadian defense minister under Pierre Trudeau made a stunning request to the parliament to begin public hearings concerning making peaceful relations with aliens, a diplomatic move called "Exopolitics.
This group claimed that intimidation is still rampant and people are afraid to come forward with evidence that the phenomenon is genuine.
McClendon stated that the Clinton administration had "many briefings on the subject. It is claimed that a number of other government officials, including Al Gore, have been privy to these briefings and documents.
McClendon also related the experience of Lt. Philip Corso , who claimed to have worked on the back-engineering of alien ship parts from the Roswell crash, stating definitively that this work led to the development of a number of high tech creations of the past 50 years.
Now deceased, Corso has been the subject of extensive debunking by skeptics. In another stunning statement, University of New Hampshire professor of chemical oceanography, Ted Loder, PhD, stated definitively that the government is engaged with aliens, that there is "an interstellar war" going on, and that this is all being covered up by the brainwashing of the masses.
Loder also opines that the aliens are making themselves more known to try to wake up the populace because, "We're polluting ourselves to death. Loder also points out that by the government keeping this information secret, humanity is prevented from using alien technology that is free and clean, such that the environment is also suffering from this cover-up.
He further declares that humankind is going to have to evolve in order to join any cosmic community, and that its attitudes towards religion, race, etc.
In addition, after centuries of being occupied by "aliens" sarcasm , the Vatican, represented by insider Monsignor Balducci , has appeared on national television in Italy to state that extraterrestrial contact is real.
Balducci has said that extraterrestrials "are NOT demonic, they are NOT due to psychological impairment, they are NOT a case of entity attachment, but these encounters deserve to be studied carefully.
Various researchers over the decades have claimed that the Vatican has been quite aware of "alien" presences for centuries, so this "admission" would not be exactly a surprise.
It seems that humans will always find a way to remain entrenched in their conditioning, no matter how strong the evidence against it.
Yet, until human beings reject their egocentric interpretations of the cosmos as found in myopic religions, they will not be viewed as "intelligent life" by any possible extraterrestrials.
Recently I heard a religious group discussing this, and one of them said if ever space travel became a possibility they would carry the Gospel message to the other planets - some of which may be billions of years in advance of us.
What would the beings there think of it? Would they not be surprised to learn the mother of their Creator was a Jewish girl by the name of Mary, and that their world was created by her Son saying Let it be?
No, if ever we go visiting cosmically we had better leave our provincialisms at home. Since this was written, cosmic visiting is underway.
Men can now go to the moon, and yet believe in Genesic Creation; they can transplant hearts but only "with the help of God," as one stated.
Can we not see that this is but our way of thinking, and that the beings on other worlds never heard of this God, His mother, or His word-of-mouth creation?
The facts are that UFOs - i. Are any UFOs "spacecraft" powered by "aliens? It sounds great at first to think that there may be aliens among us, at least in the New Age arena, where the "aliens" always claim to be trying to help but never do much of anything.
If such good-guy aliens are around, they certainly should not be worshipped as gods, anymore than cultures with advanced technology should be worshipped by inhabitants of jungles or remote islands.
Any "aliens" who may be lurking about on this planet must also be questioned as to why, if they are so advanced and evolved, they have allowed such a destructive scenario as what has been happening on Earth for the past several thousand years.
They should not be easily let off the hook, not even if they claim "prime directive of non-interference. Why allow people to crash into mountaintops and then cannibalize each other to survive?
If we were visiting another culture upon Earth and happened to stumble into internecine warfare, where children were being killed or some other atrocity being committed, would we stand back and say, "Oh, I can only watch as that young girl is burned by Napalm, because I'm under the order of prime directive?
We will not recognize them as saviors, although we will certainly graciously welcome their assistance. Yet, if it were true that they have been engaged in stellar wars to keep this or any other planet safe from the bad guys, then we would certainly hail them as heroes, just as we would any human who puts her or his life on the line for the greater good.
And then we would incorporate them into our lives as guests and members of the cosmic family. In Messengers of Deception , French scientist Dr.
The pernicious suggestion that some of us on the Earth are of extraterrestrial descent and therefore constitute a "higher race.
Let us note in passing that Adamski's Venusian The statement that the birth of civilization on this planet resulted not from the genius and ability of mankind, but from repeated assistance by higher beings.
Archaeologists and anthropologists are constantly aware of the marvelous skill with which the "Ancient Engineers" to use L. Sprague de Camp's phrase developed the tools of civilization on all continents.
No appeal to superior powers is necessary to explain the achievements of early culture. The belief expressed by the contactees reveals a tragic lack of trust on their part in human ability.
