Alien versus Aliens and Terminator versus T2 are the film world's version of debating politics and religion.  :lol:

Oh, I see.

Yeah, I get that everyone thinks the first one was a masterpiece but people are allowed to be wrong. It was good, but nothing special. It really took the second film to fully explore the horrors of not only the xenomorphs but of the inevitability of humanity's demise at the hands of its own greed.

If Star Trek is space socialism, the Alien quadrillogy is space libertarianism and that, I'm afraid, is the vastly more likely real-life future. And if that doesn't scare you, well, we're motivated by very different things I guess.


No, I think the issue is that Alien is actually a horror film, while Aliens is an action film.

I never said it was a horror film, I just said it was terrifying.

While terminator 2 was an improvement over the first one, I feel it really didn't hit its stride till 3.

I liked Terminator 3 more than most folks I've met. Please understand that statement is still incredibly relative.

This conversation is a waste of time.
























Because Predator is obviously the most terrifying Sci fi movie of all time due to the implication that this planet is a mere playground for far more intelligent and technologically advanced species.

Which reminds me how terrifying Aliens is as a propaganda piece for the military industrial complex.

If I had to rank everything that exists in order of how much I like it, Terminator 3 would rank below ingrown toenails.
