How could anyone give this an "Oh No?"
Written October 22, 2008
I remember when this movie came out back in '86.
Ripley was the BOOOOOOMMMMBBB! Literally.
Absolutely one of my favorite Sci-Fi movies ever.
Those Aliens actually scared the heck out me, in a creepy disturbing sort of way.
Also best sequel ever following Alien.
Alien and Aliens will always be a classic Sci-Fi, and entertaining for all, if you are not the squeamish type.

This movie was long, intense, and just pure genious. My favorite among Fight Club, And Saving Private Ryan. If you rate it an "Oh no!" You shouldn't watch movies!

"Choke on it and die already!" Words intended to quiet down a guy that was loudly chomping on pop corn during early suspense scenes. I've held on to those words with fondness. They symbolize the undying hunger in audiences for a good ***kicking film. And back in the day, this one kicked ***like no other.
I had read the script and wondered where those additional atmospheric scenes had gone in that theatrical cut. It was truly satisfying to see that they had been sitting dormant in James Cameron's editing bin, and were now part of this Extended Cut. I won't give away all the goodies to allow you for a better surprise, but let's just say the additions are well placed and definitely help the establishment of plot and character.
It is fun to look back at Mr. Avatar and see the early makings of a phenomenal action director. The tough guys with damaged egos. Technology turned on its side. And, of course, the curiosity for alien races quickly becoming a predicament larger than expected.
