I bought The Alien box set last week. Last night we sat down and watched Aliens (no2) I thought id let the kids watch it too. ages 9 & 12 Even though its an 18cert i knew there be no sex scenes all too much swearing in it, that may not have been apropiate for them. it was interesting to note that after the film the kids said they didnt find it 'that' scary, and asked why the cert18. The oldest said that yeah it was a good film, but those effects just arnt convincing enough to get them scared. This got me thinking, as when i first watched alien some 20 years ago as a late teenager. We were all impressed and taken in by what we were watching. It takes me back to when i was a kid in the seventys and watched b&w episodes of flash gordan and found it extremely funny & totally unbelievable. Where as my parents would have been impressed when watching such sci fi stuff in there youth. It begs the question, what the next 15 years will bring us. Films such as lord of the rings are absolute Gems Today. I mean that little boney Snorbitz all whatever hes called. is that an actor or animation, It is hard to tell. (JOKE). Anyway would aliens still get a '18' if released today ?
