169 // The Risk Always Lives: Interviewing Jenette Goldstein

169 // The Risk Always Lives: Interviewing Jenette Goldstein

July 27, 2021

Aliens remains one of the greatest sequels ever made. The 1986 followup to the Ridley Scott original turned a one-off phenomenal film into a franchise-maker.

Even moreso than its predecessor, James Cameron’s Aliens is a film about character. In this special interview, Jenette Goldstein—who, in portraying PFC Vasquez, gave us one of the most unforgettable characters of all—takes us on a tour of her life, her time on set, and her most cherished memories.

Joining Jaime and Patrick in this exciting interview are our new Contributing Hosts, Andie and Christian!

After the interview wraps, stick around for an extended roundtable conversation on the legacy of Vasquez (and much more), as the interview quartet is joined by IG all-stars Perry and Maj.

Keep up with all of Jenette's exploits on IG! @realjenettegoldstein @jenettebras_la @jenettebras_atl And be sure to stop by jenettebras.com.

Also!! Make sure you check out Jenette appearing in the music video for "Reach," a song by Bill Paxton's band Martini Ranch. Directed by James Cameron, no less! You might recognize some other faces as well ...

Thirty-five years ago—July 14, 1986—James Cameron’s Aliens lit up movie screens across the globe for the first time. In the decades since, Aliens has become a deeply beloved, immeasurably influential, genre-defining example of what great filmmaking looks like.

In this roundtable celebration of Aliens’ 35th anniversary, Jaime, Patrick, Christian, Maj, and Perry are joined once again by Marvel’s Phillip Kennedy Johnson for a rousing look at Aliens and its deep impact on our lives, our work, and our world.

June 29, 2021

As we get ever closer to the 35th anniversary of Aliens' theatrical premiere, fans around the world find ourselves feeling a little nostalgic. Many of us were introduced to Aliens (or other films in the saga) by parents, aunts, uncles, etc. And many of us now, having grown to become parents, aunts, uncles ourselves, are in the wonderful position of being able to introduce it to kids ourselves.

On this heartfelt episode, Jaime and Patrick are joined by our new Contributing Host Christian Matzke, as well as beloved PO guest Andie GeekGirl. We hope you feel the love.

The character of Parker is arguably the hero of Alien. Performed deftly by the late Yaphet Kotto, Parker echoes in the heart chambers of the Alien saga. From his charm, to his wit, to his affable nature, Parker endears himself to the audience as well as the crew of the Nostromo.

In this episode, Jaime, Patrick, and special guest Christian Matzke sit down to discuss this indelible character and the legacy he's left in a series that is second to none.
