    190 // Charles de Lauzirika’s Alien 3 Assembly Cut Commentary

    190 // Charles de Lauzirika’s Alien 3 Assembly Cut Commentary

    Charles de Lauzirika is the Restoration Producer of the Alien 3 Assembly Cut, as well as the director of Wreckage and Rage, the definitive behind-the-scenes account of Alien 3 (which you may have seen, in various forms, on both the Quadrilogy and Anthology boxsets). He reached out to us after our previous Assembly Cut commentary went live on Alien Day and asked if we'd like to watch it again, only this time with him on the commentary panel!

    Jaime, Patrick, and Christian had the immense pleasure of learning the inside story of the Assembly Cut from the guy who actually put it together, and we're thrilled to share this exclusive experience with our listeners.

    The commentary track gets started after a few minutes of intros and banter; we'll cue you when it's time to start playing the film.

Beware! Fantastic, deep-dives every episode!

Perfect Organism is the first podcast to hook he into regular listening. The hosts discuss details of the Alien saga to a level and depth I had not encountered. From behind-the-scenes to cast and creator interviews, they do a great job of separating episodes into focused series within their expansive back catalog for new listeners.

High production values set it apart from a lot of similar sci-if genre podcasts. They delve into a granular level of minutiae without alienating the uninitiated. Their format and pacing is so solid, I don’t know how they do it. But I’m glad they do. Every episode goes to the top of the queue.

Do yourself a favor and listen to these knowledgeable hosts and characters. Beware! They will pull you back into this franchise deeper than you ever have been!

Love this podcast

I love this franchise, and these people do an amazing job diving in to each episode (regardless of the topic) to explore something new about a particular character or movie (or soundtrack!). It’s hard to find podcasts these days that are so entertaining AND stay away from current politics/political views (because if I wanted that I’d listen to some other show).
Thank you so much for all the work you put in to each episode and I look forward to many, many more to come!

Wonderful Podcast

Huge Alien fan and I love listening to this podcast while at work. These guys are huge fans and extremely knowledgeable on the Alien franchise. It’s a pleasure to listen to. Only criticism from me is to stop crapping on Resurrection so much! I love that movie dearly! Great podcast five stars.
