Brief Synopsis:
The last shreds off the cutting room floor have been put back into Aliens, as the infamous Burke Cocoon scene has been reinstated along with several other short moments and lines that were never included in any other cut of the film.
Intention:
I wanted to see the Burke scene back in the film, but thought that I may as well put everything else back in as well.

Bobson Dugnutt strikes again.

I have a sense of deja vu reviewing an Aliens Fanedit. A not long time ago I reviewed Bobsons Aliens: No Hope Edition. Which was already a marvellous companion to an exceptional movie.

This time around we have something no other edition has... The famous 10 sec of extra seconds. Watching now Burke cocoon scene without going through the DVD extras makes me realize, maybe that was a good idea not to include it in the theatrical and directors cut release. But it does satisfy us, Aliens, fans with something new and fresh.

I have no comments on the technical aspect of the edit. Bobson never disappoints and his edits are always well put together.

It's no secret I am a big Alien quadrilogy fan and I would like to express my gratitude to Bobson and other dedicated fan editors to keep the spirit of the original Alien movies alive.

CERTIFIED ROTTEN FRESH FAN EDIT :)

10 seconds in and I was like WOW. Brought back all the memories of why I love the first two Alien movies. Miss Weaver is hot and I do love practical effects and the models. Oh yeah and the movie is good too. And on a rainy day in Lock Down LA this is another eason why I like Bobsons edits. This was a 2 bags of popcorn movie for me and it kept my attention and extremely entertaining (which is all I look for in movies and TV shows). Angain thanks for your effort and work. Now the decision is which edit do I watch next????
