Each week, one of Biff Bam Pop’s illustrious writers will delve into one of their favorite things.  Perhaps it’s a movie or album they’ve carried with them for years.  Maybe it’s something new that moved them and they think might move you too.  Each week, a new subject, a new voice writing on… something they love.

Biff Bam Pop!’s fearless leader, Andy Burns, once asked me what movie scared me the most. I would have to say it was Alien and the sequels that followed. Why aliens? I grew up during the Cold War and nuclear testing. Coincidentally there was also an increase in UFO sightings. Everyone was afraid of atomic warfare or getting probed by little green men. This fear was carried over in film. To find out why I feel that Alien is a great film, you need to step back in time.
