This week's assignment from the PCL is an interesting one: Aliens Among Us
“If aliens visit us, the outcome would be much as when Columbus landed in America, which didn’t turn out well for the Native Americans.” –Stephen Hawking
I guess the intent of this assignment is to acknowledge we (as humans and residents of the planet Earth) are basically toast if aliens ever arrive to this planet. The colonists wiped out the Native Americans, so aliens will do the same to us. It's a given.
Or is it?
I don't think it is...and I'll tell you why. Will Smith, Bruce Willis, and Wolverines
We know exactly what's going to happen if aliens attack us.
First - we have Will Smith, Bill Pullman, and Jeff Goldblum. Independence Day
These guys are so bad ass - they have action figures.
Next, we have Bruce Willis...AND...Ben Affleck. Whether it is an asteroid or alien, they'll ride up there in titanium space shuttles and drill the threat right in the ass. Armageddon
These guys also have action figures.
But now, the most important reason why aliens could never kick our ass, besides our Second Amendment rights, are the Wolverines!
A high school football team and high school class president kicked the Soviet army out of Colorado. Think what will happen to the aliens.
Red Dawn is the one movie that is at the top of my ReAction wishlist. Years ago, I made some custom cards. Someday....I need a 3D printer.
Brother Midnight agrees we are toast!
The Toybox 1138 turns to another American hero.
Toy Break figured out the conspiracy. It was right in front of us all along.
Love Armageddon! Such an underrated, and underappreciated movie!ReplyDelete
I agree. Very fun movie. When I saw it in the theaters with my dad, right as the asteroid was supposed to hit, the film got caught in the reel and caught on fire. So all we saw on the screen were flames. Thought it hit for real.Delete
Wow!Now that would be one helluva flick!ReplyDelete
Wolverines vs Aliens. I'm taking the script to Hollywood.Delete
I watched that movie so many times as a kid. I think you're right though, humans would eventually have some kind of underground resistance to fight back.
V is another good one. See what happened to them.Delete
You win this week, solely on the fact that you talked about Red Dawn.ReplyDelete
(Get on that Funko!)
Yeah - no kidding - need some Red Dawn toys. I once looked into doing custom 1/6th scale figures but couldn't really find the right uniforms, clothes and equipment. Might have to relook that project.Delete
I have those Armageddon action figures. They are the best.ReplyDelete
Awesome. Wish they would have made some other characters, especially Steve Buscemi and Michael Clarke Duncan.Delete
Those CD Rom games that came with the ID4 Toys were pretty tough. I remember having to build some kind of alien gun with no instructions on how to do it!ReplyDelete
Interesting. Didn't even know those existed. I pulled these photos off ebay.Delete
