  1. God I love that film. Much more than Alien. Mainly because of its ensemble and how they were able to kill those aliens. Vasquez was a badass as at least she and Lt. Gorman were able to kill a bunch of them on their way out. If you’re going to die, at least take some of those bastards with you.

    For me, the film belonged to Sigourney Weaver as I often felt she should’ve gotten more recognition for that performance as should’ve won the Oscar for that performance. It’s one of best film performances that I had ever seen as there’s no way anyone could get excited for that line… “GET AWAY FROM HER YOU BITCH!”

  2. It’s a great movie – spooky, suspenseful – last time I was watching it I was thinking how talented James Cameron is. I kind of think it’s too bad he got locked into making all these Avatar movies instead of a variety of action movies. (of course, that’s without knowing how those movies are going to turn out, maybe they’ll be great)

    • I know what you mean. I would love to see him extending his talent well beyond Avatar. But that film was his baby and he continues to be invested in making it a big franchise.

  3. I love your choice of images. While a horror movie, it certainly has that action feel to it. But thankfully we get to see character development with Ripley which is amazing.
