Easy, tiger. Considering probably more than half of NFS's readers weren't even born when Alien came out, it's very likely news to them. :-)
Me, I was in the audience on opening day, and I remember nearly soiling myself. Ridley Scott is a f**king genius.
Sorry, can't let this mistake slip by, but, Darth Vader's character was not introduced by "storming into Leia's cell to claim the stolen plans for the newly constructed Death Star". It's when the Imperial starship captured Leia's ship and he entered immediately after the ship was boarded by storm troopers. Though he didn't have any dialogue in that scene, his costume, artificial breathing and the music told you pretty much everything you needed to know. The embedded video gets this fact right. Mr. Fusco's penance should be that he must go back and watch Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. Which, come to think of it, is hardly punishment at all. Maybe he should have to be compelled to watch Episode I instead. :-)
"...arguments that contain more logical fallacies than a sleepy four-year-old." Brilliant metaphor. As a dad of three now-grown children, one that made me laugh out aloud.
Thanks! It's there now. It wasn't when it was first posted.
