  • 5 stars "Aliens is in a class by itself as the greatest movie ever made in its genre. The outstanding story is a roller coaster of action and suspense. However, the quality doesn't end there with set design and special effects that have stood the test of time and look as modern today as they did then. Anyone who lacks the analytical ability to be able to perceive the achievement that this film represents in comparison to any other simply has to refer to the awards it garnered at the time against the competition before and after this masterpiece."
  • 5 stars "If you look closely, you will see that the Halo game has taken a lot of ideas fromo this movie, for example, the Pillar of Autumn looks a lot like the ship, Johnson and his cigar and the marines leaving the ship, and the Pelicans. Has anyboby else thought this?"
  • 5 stars "One of the best all time movies, of any genre."
