Emergency helmets....Ridley thought it was cool with the readout reflected in them the way he cut it, it looks as if the two helmets are having a conversation.
@Lone once again, of course, totally right on!
I LOVE that intro sequence, before anyone awakens. Then the "message" jolts everyone into life. Just an amazingly sequenced piece of film.
Hmm...They did look cool with the reflections but I never saw that really did anything else. Thanks Lone.
@dk it's the SOUNDS during that sequence that are so important when combined with the reflections and lighting...
Starlogger I agree the scene was great and I think they were seen again when the crew was searching for Jonesy. I just thought they were communicating somehow as Lone stated but nothing else happened. I didn't realize they were just emergency helmets looking pretty while reflecting the monitors. Good trivia to know.
I love how the scene ends abruptly with what sounds like a raspberry blow! ;)
dk that's just one of the many things I love about A L I E N, there are still nice little details to be discovered.
Now, every time I watch it, I look at a different part of the background and I usually never fail to spot something I missed the hundreds of times I've watched it before!
