|I Love Sci-Fi/Fantasy Because...|
If ever I need a woman to come to my rescue, this is who I hope shows up.
|Save me next, Ripley!|
Aliens was the only movie of this type that really stayed with me for a few days after watching it the first time. The first movie (Alien) was okay and I liked Alien 3 as well, but Aliens was the best.
The creatures introduced in this series were the most unique aliens to enter the mainstream in a very long time. They were virtually unstoppable--at least until they met Ripley.
Sigourney Weaver was arguably at her best in this role. (I loved her in Galaxy Quest too, but that's a post for another time.) She's a talented actress and a credit to her profession.
Sigourney's role as Ellen Ripley is one reason I love science fiction and fantasy.
