    I remember watching this as a kid and just being terrified but elated at the same time. I agree though, the special effects have really held up. The Stan Winston Xenomorphs are way more bad ass than the CGI effects ones they have in the AVP crap now.

    Didn’t Cameron say he would never do a remake or update the effects on this film ever?

    Ripley was floating in space for 57 years, not “almost fifty” and James Cameron wrote as well as directed, based on characters created by the writers of the first film. But, yeah, it is a pretty excellent movie, even after 23 years.

    Aliens is probably the film I’ve seen the most times in my life. It was great when I first saw as a 7 year old. It was great when I was in my teens. It is still great now that I’m in my twenties. James Cameron crafted one of the most exciting sequels ever made. It’s a rollercoaster ride of a movie! Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant.
