On Second Thought: Alien³ (The Assembly Cut)

the m0vie blog

To celebrate the release of Prometheus this week, we’ll be taking a look at the other movies in the Alien franchise.

Alien and Aliens are, quite rightly, considered classics of the science-fiction horror subgenre, superbly constructed examinations of the monsters lurking in the darkness. Unfortunately, the two sequels, Alien³ and Alien Resurrection are not so highly regarded. One would imagine that producing a film about a monster in the future really wouldn’t be that difficult, but the films were both dogged by their own pre-production turmoil. In particular, this third film went through several painful iterations before reaching the big screen – and, even then, there was a sense that nobody was especially happy with the result.

However, this series of films has also benefited from a great deal of affection, attention and examination from both creators and fans. As such, it isn’t really a surprise that even the creators…

New York Mayor Calls for Restrictions on Sugary Soft Drinks

THE CASE OF THE BOY WHO GOT BEAT BY A GIRL

oseunFUNMIWORDsmith

I did not start it. Honestly I did not start it.

She did. Sandra Ehihegbamen did.

And they fueled it.

Yes, my friends fueled it.

Femi, Tunde, Idowu and Rasheed fueled it.

They fueled it and the endgame was my undoing.

She wiped the board while I was still writing,

She cleaned off what the teacher wrote on the blackboard,

I told her not to, that I was still writing,

She only hissed and continued.

I would not have reacted had my friends shut their mouths.

I would not have raised my hands,

Had her friends not looked at me like that,

I threatened fire and brimstone,

Promising to kill her if she did not stop wiping the board,

She stood her ground and dared me to do my worst.

My friends urged me on,

Telling to stand my ground and show her I was the man.

Her friends stood…

CHILDHOOD NAUGHTINESS: THE CASE OF THE LOVE LETTER

oseunFUNMIWORDsmith

Hey friends,

For the next couple of weeks I will run a series of stories on this blog about some of my childhood naughtiness. It bores down to some of the naughty things I did while growing up, I am sure you also perpetrated some of the acts as well. The experience is basically mine, but I have included some of the stuffs also perpetrated by my friends to make the stories very interesting….

This week I will start with a story about the first love letter I wrote to a classmate when I was on primary 5. Just hold your sides and do not laugh too much…. Do not forget, my writing style is always in stanzas 😉

And please forgive my use of English, I communicate better in my mother tongue:

CHILDHOOD NAUGHTINESS: THE CASE OF THE LOVE LETTER

I slid it across the desk,

Slowly.

Cautiously.

Consciously.

A Lost Decade

Kabura Zakama Randomised

This day finds me chained in toils

While politicians and their cohorts

Snuff out the lives of public millions,

To blow their trumpets of corruption

In the drama of their democracy day.

 

Politics masquerade in multiple faces

Thuggery and vote-rigging glorified,

Medals shared on the pages of papers

To self-appointed saviours of the nation

In the drama of their democracy day.

 

I cannot celebrate this democracy

In the pain of my castration!

I cannot celebrate this democracy

In the shame of my cowardice!

I cannot celebrate this democracy

I mourn the demise of humanity!
