Movie Chat kicks off the summer schedule with a very special double-feature: ‘Alien’ and Aliens!’ The stirring tale of the crew of the Nostromo, and the further adventures of Ripley have entertained fans for over twenty years. Join us in what is sure to be a lively debate on the styles of Ridley Scott and James Cameron, the virtues and flaws of both films, and a lot of hooting over our favorite lines: “Game over, man!”

TORn’s chatroom takes a break from discussing all things Tolkien every other weekend to watch a classic film en masse as their very own MSTK. Join us Sunday at 2:30 pm EST when we’ll pop our copies of ‘Alien’ (theatrical version) into our DVD players. Then, at 5:30 pm EST, we’ll continue with ‘Aliens’ (special edition).

Also, please check out our tentative Summer Schedule below, as voted on by the fine folks in Barliman’s chat room. Upcoming featured films include: a double-feature of ‘Galaxy Quest,’ ‘Ghostbusters,’ and ‘Princess Bride.’About IRC chat]
