What is it about? This is the simplest cut of the ALIEN lot, using the Special Edition version simply removes scenes of the colonists and Newt's family discovering the Space Jockey's ship. I actually like all the extended scenes in this version but dislike the whole Newt's family scene (I used to have to skip it every time). I've kept the first outdoor shots of "Hadley's Hope" however as it gives a preview of the "shake and bake" colony. A better paced version.

Your intention for this fanedit:
The Newt's family scenes always annoyed me, as did the colonists discussing orders from the company. So I removed these scenes, but retained the outdoor shots of the colony as a kind of preview of things to come.

Time needed for the edition: 3 days

Thx a bunch for this edit!

There's enough Hollywood hokeyness already in the film when near the end Next says "Mommy" to Ripley for saving her--personally, I wish someone would black-out that! Otherwise, outstanding and fun film.

Oh, you heartless person! :cry: ;)
More seriously, the "mommy" line also refers to the fact that Ripley lost her daughter at the begining of the movie (in the extended version at least) and take Newt as a "replacement" daughter through all the movie. So it does not bother me at all. It is part of the arc of Ripley character to have a "new" (newt) daughter. Not just a family friendly line.
That is why I cannot f..... stand the fact that they killed her so soon at the begining of Alien 3. It simply negates all the purpose of her character development in Aliens. But that another story...

I fully understand that, but it is unrealistic, story-arc-be-damned, kids don't dump their parents like that (although if Ripley saved my butt, I would be tempted to thank her more than just saying 'mommy'! :lol: :grin: ).
