In these two edited segments from Good Morning Austin broadcasts for Austin’s KVUE-TV, Roy Faires reviews the latest movies. The first segment consists of his glowing, four-star review of Aliens (1986). He also sits down for an interview with the film’s star, actress Sigourney Weaver, to discuss her role in the film and the violent action scenes it required her to shoot. In the second segment, Faires discusses Flight of the Navigator (1986) and Howard the Duck (1986), which both receive poor reviews. This segment also includes two celebrity interviews. In the first, Faires talks with actor Robin Williams about his audition with the makers of Howard the Duck. (Williams was not cast.) And in the second, Faires sits down with writer/director James Cameron to discuss his film Aliens and Cameron’s approach to making a sequel. Faires worked as a special project director and entertainment critic/reporter at KVUE-TV, Austin’s ABC affiliate, from 1976-1989.
