shark’s review published on Letterboxd:
This may just be better than the original, not in the same way, though.
Alien is horror plotting brilliance: taking and morphing the genre into something entirely its own.
Aliens is The Ellen Ripley machine: a true character driven thriller/sci-fi vehicle, exploring (more deeply, at least) the permanence of human selfish idiocy.
James Cameron can still suck a big fat cock for his defecation know as Avatar (which is a masturbatory technical showcase ripped off from Aliens).
Don't be gone long, Ellen.
