Fair use rationale for Image:Sutherland screams.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Sutherland screams.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 06:12, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

Really notable?[edit]

This article sure is an interesting trivia, but as it is only related to the book and movies, there should be serious consideration of merging AND tidying up the text. If there would be some information that would tie this article in larger circles of pop culture or some other articles the existence of this sole article would be IMO justified. Now it's a sole movie trivia article which is degrading Wikipedias credibility as a fact source. If no answers are written within a week I'll put a suggest on merge or delete. -- (talk) 22:55, 17 August 2008 (UTC) == (--piksi (talk) 22:56, 17 August 2008 (UTC))


I really want to know how they made that scream. It gave me nightmares! It's so unearthly, almost Tasmanian devil-like. When I first saw it, I thought it was just ambiance, but then I found out it was them making the noise, and I almost pissed myself. Anyway, background on the sound effects would be great. Also, the beginning where they're showing the pod people's origins? That was amazing! How did they make the gelatinous worm-like things look so real? It was perfect!

The Micronoid Aggregate, which is the true antagonist of the X-COM series, was possibly based on the Pod People. They are both Extraterrestrial Parasites that depend on the assimilation of other species and the consumption of their resources for their own survival. --Arima (talk) 08:18, 10 April 2010 (UTC)
