Movie Review: Aliens

Monday, October 10, 2005
This weekend I watched one of the best movies to come out of the mid 80's: Aliens. A sequel to the successful Alien film of 1979, this one is about an armed return to the planet of LV426, where the original Alien was found.

One thing that I personally liked about this film was its intense rewatchability. I watched the original Alien when I was 6 or 7 - not really old enough to appreciate H.R. Giger's work. What I was old enough to do is have nightmares for years. This movie, which I finally watched in college, helped me resolve that. This movie took the Alien out of the nightmare category.

There is one question I have that is never resolved in ANY of the Alien films: what was the giant Alien whose ship crashed in the first film?

Final word on Aliens: Great movie, I watch it again and again, it was better than "Cats".

HA! I so remember when I showed you this movie on video and you had to walk home at night and you apparently got all scared... ah. Those were the days.
