In Part II of this very special War Crimes: Civil War episode, The Dudes pit two essential sci-fi flicks against each other to determine which is essentialier – Alien vs. AliensDoes Ridley Scott’s atmospheric, outer space spine-tingler scare up the win? Or do the Dudes fall for the oozing machismo and automatic machine guns of James Cameron’s testosterone-drenched shoot ’em up? Only one can win –  and remember folks, in space, no one can hear you complain. Game over, man, game over!

In Part I of this very special War Crimes (colon) Civil War episode, the Dudes review two sci-fi essentials – Ridley Scott’s Alien and James Cameron’s Aliens!  Marvel as three grown men extrapolate on xenomorphs, space marines and more like the unapologetic fanboys that they are. Also, marvel that somehow Jake lived more than a quarter of a century without seeing either of these movies (…smh). Which one of these essential flicks is essentialier? Stay tuned for Part II to find out! *PLUS* Chris and Jake take a break from new releases to discuss their newest adventure – examining the career of John Carpenter in The Carpenter Shop. It’s gonna’ be Big Trouble In Little Tulsa!
