This is awesome
I actually saw aliens before alien and have to say I prefer it to the original. It has everything you could want - great special effects, loads of action and good perfomances. Id have to say though that the special edition was a let down and a scam. I feel cameron got it just right with the original as there was more tension and i feel that somehow the extra scenes take some of that away. I also feel that releasing the special edition a few months after the original is a rip off as its just another way for the studios to rip movie fans off by expecting them to buy the same movie twice but with a few extra scenes.
