This Time It's War
When Ripley's lifepod is found by a salvage crew over 50 years later, she finds that terra-formers are on the very planet they found the alien species. When the company sends a family of colonists out to investigate her story, all contact is lost with the planet and colonists. They enlist Ripley and the colonial marines to return and search for answers.
When I was an agoraphobic psychotic 13 year old in 1987, my most prized possession was a VHS tape I had made myself by recording David Cronenberg's The Fly and Aliens off of HBO. I watched those movies over and over. I barely went to school that fall. I had not finished the end of 7th Grade because incarcerated in a for-profit psychiatric hospital for children, let out to go to an academic summer program, which was a bad idea because crazy, was kicked out, moved with my parents' dying marriage to a Marine Corps air base in South Carolina, and proceeded to not go to 8th Grade. Instead I watched horror movies on cable and the ones my mom…
Did the math, and I do believe, on a purely technical level, "Get away from her you bitch!" does in fact pass the Bechdel test.
The action packed James Cameron directed sequel to the atmospheric horror classic Alien finds our heroine Ripley once again doing battle with the alien thingys and this time she has some help from a squad of badass Colonial Marines. Space breathing. Maybe Jonesy really does have nine lives? The way Carter Burke pets a pussy. Alien dreams that would scare Freddy. Big business brouhaha. The dangling ash from Ripley's cigarette. Bootleg Apple FaceTime. Sgt. Apone and his badass cigar. Co-ed locker room. Vasquez could kick all our asses at the same time. Virgin rescue? Bishop's knife. The Bill Paxton scream. Hudson and Hicks are to Aliens as Parker and Brett are to Alien, they are the motherfuckers. Lt. Pansy Gorman.…

“I can handle myself.” “Yeah, I noticed.”
Fifty-seven years. That is how long she had been in stasis. Her crew, her friends killed by that...that thing. The Nostromo detonated, the stowaway alien blasted into hyperspace. And then hypersleep. For fifty-seven long years, Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) and her tabby cat, Jonesy, had been floating through space in suspended animation. They might have floated forever had a salvage crew not stumbled across them. Carter Burke (Paul Reiser) says the odds of finding her escape pod were one in one thousand, but surely they were lower than that. Pure luck. Pure luck that she got out alive, pure luck that she was found. And what have the intervening fifty-seven…
There are very few sequels out there that have managed to surpass the originals and overcome the expectations of the first chapter's loyal & faithful fans. And James Cameron's Aliens is one film that does exactly that by taking the original story of Ridley Scott's Alien and expanding upon it in ways most sequels are afraid to, for this second chapter is way more bigger & action-packed than its predecessor, and succeeds not just as a great sci-fi horror but as a redefinition of action filmmaking as well.
The story of Aliens takes place 57 years after the events of the first film & concerns the solo survivor Ripley, whose account of what happened on the planet is dismissed by her executives as…
Having escaped the alien from Alien, Ellen Ripley returns to Earth (in deep sleep), only to find out her ship drifted off course, taking 57 years to be retrieved. Meanwhile a lot has happened: the colonisation of the alien’s planet for instance. When the colonisers also find out about their mistake, Ripley joins a termination SWAT-team to get rid of the alien plague that’s terrorising the colonisers, but they may have underrated the dangers that await them. Aliens is Alien going full James Cameron. It’s bigger, longer, louder, faster and more violent. The action is therefore also highly enjoyable with some classic scenes I had already heard of without ever watching it - “that can't be, that's inside the room”.…

One of the best sequels ever done.
"Game over man, game over!"
I do believe my allegiance to the first film affected my thoughts going into Aliens-I thought there was no way it could live up to it, knowing that it had been turned into an action movie and directed by a director that I'm not a huge fan of. And for the first hour or so, I felt validated. Full of boring moment after boring moment-nothing of interest happens for the first hour and change.
Alien is one of the most gorgeous looking films ever. The Nostromo looks so authentic and genuine despite being so futuristic. The design of the ship gives the impression that it's a living, breathing thing itself. The cinematography of the first…
I'm still trying to catch my breath and calm my typing fingers as I attempt to write this... Out of all the roaring action, my favorite moment in the movie is a quiet one. Ripley's descending in an elevator and takes the ultimate mom moment. She breathes in, closes her eyes and stretches her neck in preparation for her next move. I've done it a hundred times, yet never facing my mortal fear. Yeah, sometimes I'm afraid, but this is terror that haunts her dreams and will most likely kill her. Even knowing that, move she must and move she will. What a moment. There are other times in this movie which are thrilling and awe inspiring, but give me the significance of an instance where someone is tamping down fear, every time. The steeling of the spine moment -- "Lock and Load", "Let's Roll", or Trinity's "get up." www.youtube.com/watch?v=cGeoB8czHo8#no
Yes, Newt needs you, Ripley, so get up!
One of the rare occasions where the sequel is better than the original. While the original was extremely slow, this movie has plenty of action. It fleshes out the story that the firstovie established.
a perfect sci-fi horror classic
"Stay way from her, you bitch!"
Fifty seven years after Ellen Ripley survived her disastrous ordeal, her hypersleep capsule is recovered after drifting across the galaxy as she slept in cryogenic stasis. Back on earth, nobody believed her story about the alien on the moon LV-426. After the Yutani-Wayland orders the colony on LV-426 to investigate, however, all communication with the colony is lost. The Company enlists Ripley to aid a team of tough, rugged space marines on a rescue mission to the now partially terraformed moon to find out if there are aliens or survivors. As the mission unfolds, Ripley will be forced to come to grips with her worst nightmare, but even as she does, she finds that…
I loved that movie more than the first.
