A disclosure is in order:
1. I think Sigourney Weaver is not only a tremendous actress, but hot as a smoking pistol. Yes, still that hot.
2. Alien was the first and so far only movie that ever made me literally jump out of my seat. Anyone want to guess which scene it was?

As you young people say, it's an old meme -- Weaver as the first real movie kick butt hero. Hell, "Thelma and Louise" can trace some of its lineage to Alien. And hey, the story is from ComicCon.

Just read an article yesterday that talked about the next Alien movie and how it will take place after Aliens and ignore the other movies after that one. Cameron was never happy that they dumped all the characters but Ripley and the android.

Peter David, writer of stuff, wrote many years ago that Aliens 3 only makes sense if it's a dream. He's probably right.

And Alien Resurrection? Ugh. I got free passes to that piece of garbage and felt cheated.

Hmph! Kaitlyn burns as dim as a nearly-burned-out birthday candle compared to Regine.

Yes, in works of fiction women really kick ass.

Also, nerdy guys get the hot girl and hot women go totally unnoticed while wearing glasses and the black guy is the first to die in any horror scenario.

I didn't think she was all that kick-ass in the first movie, but in the second she rocked.

In the context of the times she kicked ass as a female character. She was independent, fought back, was an equal with the men, gave meaningful input in conversations and wasn't just love-interest eye candy thrown in so guys could take a date to see it. A 180 from the majority of the movies then and even many movies of today. In Aliens, she became the more comic-book level of kick-ass hero that was larger than life. In the first movie, she was a real-life level hero. It's hard to compare them.
