I leave you with this info from Wikipedia about Aliens:

Brothers Robert and Dennis Skotak were hired to supervise the visual effects, having previously worked with Cameron on several Roger Corman movies. Two stages were used to construct the colony on LV-426, using miniature models that were on average six feet tall and three feet wide. Filming the miniatures was difficult due to the weather; the wind would blow over the props, although it proved helpful to give the effect of weather on the planet. Cameron used these miniatures and several effects to make scenes look larger than they really were, including rear projection, mirrors, beam splitters, camera splits and foreground miniatures.

The Alien suits were made more flexible and durable than the ones used in Alien, to expand on the creatures' movements and allow them to crawl and jump. Dancers, gymnasts and stunt men were hired to portray the Aliens. The creature's head was changed from the sleek shape used in Alien, as the crew thought that the original shape would crack with the creatures' increased mobility. Ridges were added along the head to increase its durability during movements.

Scenes involving the Alien queen were the most difficult to film, according to production staff. A life-sized mock-up was created by Stan Winston's company in the United States to see how it would operate. Once the testing was complete, the crew working on the queen flew to England and began work creating the final version. Standing at fourteen feet, it was operated using a mixture of puppeteers, control rods, hydraulics, cables, and a crane above to support it. Two puppeteers were inside the suit operating its arms, and sixteen were required to move it. All sequences involving the queen were filmed in-camera with no post-production manipulation.

Some day, they can make an awesome movie, without ever having to use any actor scenery or blue(green) screen

I've seen this documentary a few months back and it totally changed my perception of many movies (or series) just by the fact that most of them are completely filmed in a studio and post-edited with visual effets. :O

#3 They are called "animated movies". :P

It's just gone over board these days with 3D and Special effects in every movie and explosions every minute.

Remember movie's like Alfred Hitchcokcs Psycho that was shot in black and white and it kept you on you seat in suspense and the blood was simple chocolate sauce and the set they used look how much use they got out of the house set ..

Green is my favorite color. Too bad it's been highjacked and turned into a verb by environmental fascists. I want my color back.

I think #19 has hit on the important point. Location shooting would take too much time and money for a television show, so these kinds of shots are necessary. Unless you want to return to the old days, where the show took place entirely indoors or on one little piece of land.

green is the last colour you see before you go blind. Its in the middle of the color spectrum & as the field narrows green is left until nothing
