      That’s the best first I’ve ever seen.

    Another subtitle for Xtro3 should be F-Bomb: The Motion Picture.

    I actually like Xtro 2 the best, i thought that one is underrated, the best things about the film it has Jan Michael Vincent (Airwolf, The Mechanic, Big Wednesday, Damnation Alley) as the main hero a doctor and a fighter, he did good as always especially with his personal problems he had to deal with, i also thought the plot was interesting, i would agree that it could have add more to it. The first one is still good, the third one i don’t care about. Overall i think the second one is my favorite!

    James commenting on someone saying “fuck” a lot?
    There’s irony.

    Holy crap, that third movie says fuck more than the AVGN! Hilarious. The first movie looks legitimately creepy and disturbing. I’d watch it if given the chance. The other two seem pretty mediocre, though. Thanks for the review, anyway. It’s always fun learning about something you never heard of.

    Xtrollogy is more like it.

    I love how the old footage scene in Xtro 3 is silent. It really helps the creepy factor.

    The first Xtro, in my opinion, is sort of like a weird art film. It’s debatable how successful it is, but i think you can see what they were going for if you examine the relationships. The absent father figure, interestingly enough, is something it has in common with E.T.

    Jan Michael Vincent is the MAN!

    Xtro 1 looks like a decent underground flick. Three storylines wrapped into one doesn’t sound much different than Return of the Jedi (Han and crew on Endor, Lando and the Assault team in the fleet assault, and Luke vs Vader/Palpatine), although I’m sure the storylines in Jedi are much more well-tied in together. I’m a sucker for evil clown films.

    Here’s a pretty funny interview with the director of the Xtro movies. He doesn’t think too highly of them either.


  • May 20, 2012 at 4:51 pm

    I remember the third one,but i didn’t knew that that was a trilogy i guess now we know for sure.

    Hi James,

    Could you please review the horror movie “The Descent” in 2005? It’s very claustrophobic and have good suspense. All my friends and I love it. I’d like to hear your take on it.

    Man, very 80’s-esque with all of these sequels. Nice review though, the 1st one is extremely random. Lol, especially the 1st scene with the stick throwing
