    Ripley was a badass. I love the series because of her alone. A tough and genuine lady who is believable.

    Brie Larson would defeat the Aliens while putting down the men around her. Sigourney was the best because she was a fantastic character not because she was a woman.

    Thank you sigourney for giving young women a proper example by not having your face lopped off by plastic surgeons. You've aged gracefully and are nothing but class.

    Why are they focusing on just one of the movie "Aliens the part 2" and not the original Alien? I mean the first one was just as popular! Honestly I think the first one was a head of its time! Anyway I just feel that starting off on the second Alien movie will confuse people who have not seen them yet. They may think that Aliens is the first instead of Alien. And NO! I am not talking about the order of them. I am talking about the very FIRST Alien movie made in like 1979 I believe.. The second "Aliens" didn't come out until 6 7 years later! Like 85 86! I think they should tal about all of them because Signey was in most of them. Except the newer ones that came out in the past 10 years. I dunno I am probably nit picking. I would just do the report on all of them that Weaver played in. I guess it would be hard to reunite with the cast from Alien seeing how most of them are dead now.. BTW! I think Sigourney Weaver is still HOT! I mean she is truly like a fine wine, gets better with age!

    The flamethrower scene was actually more relevant than people make it out to be. It was a woman LIKING the power and control that came from the weapon. Showing that women too can be empowered.

    No cgi, back in the 80’s this movie was way ahead of its time. Everything looked so real it still beats cgi in my eyes anyway even with today’s effects.

    Ooooh my goood, when you realize you know the actor who played Bishop from somewhere (voice and looks) and then you see how he looks today. OMG ITS LANCE HENRIKSON FROM DETROIT: BECOME HUMAN, probably another reason why i loved Bishop so much!!!

    Just watched the film again today (lost count of how many times I have). Even though I can probably cite the dialogue line by line, it still never gets old. An all time classic.

    Yes I was a teen when i seen alien. I didn't WANT to go and see it. Because it was just a egg.???So what's so scary ABOUT a egg. I was in germany. And when I came OUT side it was a cold winter night and I was just looking at the people thinking if one of them come down here we are going to die. And this old German lady said. Put your jacket on its so cold. I didn't even remember I had my jacket in my arm's just hugging it. I was not cold at all.

    Can you imagine if all the other Alien movies were as good as Aliens 2? It would have to count as some sort of sci-fi overdose.

    I wonder what if Arnold starred in one of the Aliens movie. What would happen?
    More millions for both of them - The Governator and The Director.
    Here's a fun misc fact for ya - in the game Contra, which gets a lot of influence from Aliens and The Predator (characters look like Schwarzenegger, many enemies look like Aliens) they took the actors' names from Aliens to create the lead characters names - Bill Rizer and Lance Bean, named after *Bill* Paxton + Paul *Reiser* and *Lance* Henriksen and Michael *Biehn* respectively.

    If aliens exist, and if they see these movies, wouldn't Sigourny be the last person they'd wanna visit? Kinda feels like she'd be their boogie man.

    The STRANGE thing about this movie is they hardly mention the FIRST Alien: it was groundbreaking! And this was a *completely different unique movie*
    Alien was the first real space horror, Aliens was the first "Space combat". Both of them literally spawned genres and were separate achievements.

    I don’t think Sigourney Weaver will play ripley again she’s too old . I also think that Ridley-Scott is holding up the final Prometheus film and waiting for the technology to replace Sigourney in-CGI to link the alien film with the last Prometheus film . I will say I was completely disappointing in Prometheus 2 the first Prometheus was way better !!
