I thought it would take longer before I embarked on another 80s movie marathon, but I already felt like diving back in, and decided to kick off 1986 with Aliens. I can’t really say if I prefer Alien or Aliens — I love them both for very different reasons. But I’ll say that watching Aliens again — it had been quite a while — was just as enjoyable as I remembered it being. Great characters, great art direction (oh man that exo-skeleton), and great lines. There’s even more I want to watch from 1986 than 1985, and I think Aliens made for a perfect start.
