The Kids Talk Film: ALIEN
Imagine the opportunity to go back and watch Ridley Scott's Alien, for the first time again. 

Willem (age 10) got his first exposure to the horrific piece of science fiction as he continues his tour through the genre with his father (yours truly, and also the disembodied voice in the Kids Talk Film videos.) This one proved too scary for his sister Miranda (age 9) to attempt, so he flies solo in discussing the experience of long tracking shots down quiet corridors, dripping water and saliva, xenomorph life-cycles, and the keen suspense of not always seeing exactly what is happening.

Twitch has been on the Internet long enough that many of its writing staff have children old enough to understand and consume media in a way that is both raw and fresh. It might even come with an inkling of consideration afterwards -- it's true that many of us fall in love with the movies when we are very young. Thus, we are offering you the perspective of smaller children as they react to seeing classic filmmaking on the big screen.  

In the past, Willem and his younger sister Miranda have discussed David Lynch's Dune and Darren Aronfsky's The Fountain, as well as Alfonso CuarĂ³n's Gravity and Stanley Kubrick's 2001:  A Space Odyssey. Many of these these episodes, including a 15 film series on Studio Ghibli can be found in the ScreenAnarchy archives or at the Kids Talk Film Channel on Vimeo.
