The orthodontic bills would be outrageous

The first two Alien films are near-perfect blends of horror and science fiction.  Couple that with awesome creature design and a strong female protagonist and you’ve got an all-timer on your hands.  Think about how much the xenomorph influenced creature design in film.  And let’s not even get into the whole mouth-in-a-mouth thing.  That’s next-level.  Between Alien and Blade Runner, Ridley Scott has certainly done his part for the sci-fi genre.  James Cameron came along and made a great sequel to Alien.  Every time I watch Aliens I’m reminded of what a frustrating director James Cameron is.  Capable of so much but his own ego and sense of self-worth keep him elevating to another level.  He succeeds sometimes in spite of himself, which is a shame.  Regardless, I’m thankful for his contribution to the Alien franchise because it’s a good one.

  1. Loved the first Alien movie because it had seemingly unknown actors, and you didn’t know who was going to die! More of a thriller than a horror movie. You have done the alien justice with this board! Love it!
