Aliens (1986, Sigourney Weaver, Michael Biehn, Lance Henriksen)
They mostly come out at night… Mostly.
Here’s what happens: A bunch of space Marines challenge Ripley’s (wo-)manhood and goad her into returning to the alien planet, which has been colonized. Some little girl, Newt, is found wandering. Paul Reiser wants to keep a face-hugging alien as a pet. Bill Paxton is awesome. Ripley falls in love with John Connor’s father. Ripley saves the day.
Most Awesome Scene: The alien detector only measuring a 3-D world on a 2-D plane. Ripley with guns and a flamethrower. In the room with the face-huggers. Ripley fights the queen:
The Word: This movie is a tribute to awesomeness, awesomeness in every scene. A true sci-fi action horror classic. Oh and did I mention awesome!?!?
