I think that if you showed this to someone who hadn't seen Aliens before, they wouldn't know it was a fanedit. That's how good the editing was. I can't imagine how much effort went into scene selection, recutting, and audio work. A very impressive edit from blueyoda.
The recut of Newt's last scene was very well done and brutal. One thing though: the audio probably should've cut out before Ripley said "they don't kill you, it's a lie". But that ending was great. I enjoyed this more than Aliens.
Wow. I see why this won short of the year. What a fantastic job blending so many sources together. A lot of mashups, even really good ones suffer just slightly from the characters not interacting directly. It's almost an uncanny valley of movie characters. This, on the other hand, excels. I never felt like we were looking at different stuff. Particularly the grabbing of the leg in the duct and the shot that pans from our heroes straight to the zombies. Little touches like that make the blend infinitely better. With so many sources, it's a miracle that it's almost never noticeable. The zombie jumping on the windshield towards the building could have been color graded slightly more but that two second shot is literally the only criticism I would have. Bravo, phenomenal edit.
A fantastic mashup! If you're incredibly familiar with all of the sources used, then some bits might surprise you, but for the uninitiated, this is a fantastic short. Definitely the highlight of the group effort.
Incredible how effectively BlueYoda has combined so many different sources!
And what a great/horrible way to end the short! You think the alien movies are dark? Let's wait till you see this version.
Just a fantastic work on this short and probably the best of the entire consecution!
