    Bill Paxton as the brash, gung-ho coward could have done with less screen time. But from what I've seen, James Cameron has no problem serving up shallow, stereotypical characters with an iron fist.

    I thought the same but after seeing Renner in MI4 I am ok with the idea now.

    Me too. Saw Renner on Jimmy Fallon and he said that the 4th Bourne is a completely different character. There's still room for Bourne to return to the series later.

    Renner is always legit.

    Well... he is now, at least. Makes me feel good to know I'm quite better on stage. Gives me hope that someday I'll hold a candle to what he can do on screen. Different aminals though.

    Gotta start somewhere, pretty sure his friends all laughed at him for that... and now he gets to say "look at me now."

    No offense my man, but you'd have to be nuts not to embrace a wacked out Bill "Chicken-**** outfit" Paxton. Guy was just out of control in terms of his scene stealing lines.

    They're different animals, but yeah, I appreciate Alien more as I get older, and I watch Aliens less and less. I love Aliens, but it's also been borrowed from more films, shows, and video games, in terms of pacing, writing, and direction, than any action film in the past 30 years. It's hard to watch something when it's been done again and again, ad nauseum for decades.

    Alien, however, still remains a very organic and original experience. Sure it's extremely influential, but it's also extremely unique in how it's executed. The themes of isolation and terror of the unknown have rarely been duplicated in such masterful style in the horror genre.

    ^I don't think it can be argued that the last 15 minutes of ALIENS isn't about as good as it gets - but I agree with everything you say here about the first..

    Am I alone in the fact that I really like Alien Resurrection. That hybrid creature at the end so over the top. Gotta love it.


    And then there is Robot Monster.. Probably the greatest foray into the world of Hollywood Aline SFX to date..
