Aliens

Aliens ★★★★★

100/100

Whenever I watch one Alien film I almost always have to watch all four of them.

One thing I love about Ripley is that she's a reluctant hero driven to action by extreme circumstances. Her intention is never to show off how awesome she is but merely to survive. And that's great. She's also given the opportunity to show off so many sides of herself - her fear, her fierceness when double-crossed, her maternal tenderness. She might be my favorite movie character of all time. Scratch that, she is my favorite movie character of all time.
