The genius thing about the sequel is that it shifts genres to more of an action film and it works perfectly.

I prefer Ridley Scott's horror approach to the franchise (at least the first one), and as usual, Cameron's film is too long. However, memorable characters and a refreshing mix of humor help this stand as a solid entry all on it's own.

The second in the alien franchise this time directed by James Cameron. Probably the most favoured in the series it came away from the horror setting of the first film and was more of a sci fi action flick. After being rescued in deep space 57 years after the events of Alien a reluctant Ripley is taken back to the planet where the infamous events began. This time however she is in the company of a squad of Colonial marines.

Aliens is one of the most popular, culturally significant, and very best movies of 1986. Not only aiming high and shooting all aliens in plain sight, the movie stands as one of the greatest Sci-Fi movies of all-time and one of the greatest movies ever made in the 1980’s decade! A stunning visualization that clearly explores the conflict between humans and aliens! Widespread critical acclaim go to the direction, screenplay, action, score, editing, sound, visuals, cinematography, and the acting!!!

How do you do a follow-up to a classic? Give it to James Cameron to amp it up to 10 with multiple Aliens and a fantastic performance by Sigourney Weaver.

I have actually lost count how many times I have watched Aliens. Sets the gold standard for sci fi action horror. Still holds up remarkably well by today’s standards due to incredible production design. If you haven’t seen Aliens, I highly recommend you do.

Sequel to the 1979 film Alien. After surviving an alien attack aboard her space vessel. Lt. Ripley has been floating in space for 57 years, Ridley’s shuttle is found by a deep space salvage team. Ripley teams up with a squad of battle-hardened colonial marines with all the latest weaponry, but they are no match for the hundreds of aliens they encounter that have invaded the colony. A masterpiece, great storyline with great action scenes. One of the greatest movies!
