Aliens - Top 5 Movie Mistakes

  • This time on Top 5 Movie Mistakes we look at the 1986 classic ALIENS from visionary director James Cameron (THE TERMINATOR, TITANIC), that followed up Ridley Scott's 1979 masterpiece ALIEN. Now revered as one of the finest sequels of all time, ALIENS is a fan favorite and a much beloved 80s blockbuster. Personally, it's one of my favorite films of all time and was in fact, the first movie I ever saw. True story. So I have a huge attachment to this film, and finding some the movie mistakes in this one was a blast. It's all in good fun after all, and it's not like I didn't enjoy poring through one of my favorite films scene by scene to spot them... it was the only way to be sure.

    From disappearing dents to lifeless doll hands, a crew member's foot poking into shot and a legendary movie mistake that... might not have actually happened in the first place? Either my memory of seeing this particular mistake as a kid is false, or Mr. Cameron has done some digital trickery to cover up something in the years of high definition scrutiny... all this and more in the Top 5 Movie Mistakes episode for ALIENS!

    Hangar problem: look at the airlock, boxes and dropship front.

    I think so from this point right in small-model, left side in real size-model. Camera setup and lights different.

    Spectacular in movie.

    To notice this one you have to have watched the climax for alien because the consoles in Ripleys craft at the end of the alien and the ones in Ripleys craft when the salvage team break in at the beginning of the aliens don't match when they should because nobody exept Ripley had been in that craft in 3/4 of a century and she had been in cryo-stasis.

    I'm with a few people here who has to say I've never spotted these before ether lol. One that I've never seen anyone point out is when Ripley is in the Queens hive and she begins to flame the crap out of the eggs and the Queen starts screaming and at that moment you can see steel. When she screams if you look at the chest/neck area of the queen you can see a big steel beam sticking out. It's not part of her look, it really is part of the animatronics inside of her and you can see it lol. Ever since I've spotted that I've never got it out of my head! Aliens alongside Empire Strikes Back are my two fav sequels ever!!!! Great vid.

    I was waiting for this one. As much as this movie means to me, the limitations of the effects are very apparent if you try to watch it now. It's a shame.

    Did anyone notice when they were trapped and opened the vent to escape after Hudson was taken?
    Newt starts to enter and Ripley grabs her. You see Newt bang her head on the top of the vent as Ripley grabs her. Lol. Ouch!

    I never noticed any of these until you pointed them out.
    You'd actually have to be LOOKING for 'mistakes' to find these, and that's no way to enjoy a movie.

    I thought that this was going to be a video about 5 things in the plot of the movie were wrong. Or 5 things wrong in the strategy the space marines used to fight the aliens. But I just wasted 7 plus minutes watching a video about editing and film crew mistakes. Weak.

    #1 mistake: MAking this film. It has NONE of the atmosphere of the first classic movie. Just not enough horror, and Newt absolutely ruins it.

    Ash in Alien goes into cryosleep to disguise himself as a human. Everyone knows Bishop is a 'synthetic' so why does he go into cryosleep?

    It's a really good film but the prequel Alien is more psychological. And the more psychological a film the better. The End.
