How can this film be 8.4 on imdb ?
How can anybody see this shit as a great movie ? I'm only half-way and it's already unbearable.
"This" sequence (pic related) stands at a very high level of retardness.
Nothing makes sense, at all :
>team led by a newbie
>going in without any briefing or any kind of information
>little watching military operation (until dead corpses)
>suddendly realise they can't shoot
>still shoot when suddenly circled ("oh, they are everywhere", "let's say it again 20 times without moving at all")
>officer in charge in panic mode, starts whispering, anyway the black guy on field can't hear
>all cameras are fucking shit-tier form the 60s (muh scarry effects)
>we are being fed (ad nauseaum) since start about how bad-ass these jackass are supposed to be, end up being bellow starship troopers tier
I could go on far far longer. And i remember that what follows after this scene is as equally awful.
I mean i'm a huge SF fan, Scott's Alien is without a doubt a fantastic movie, but can't comprehend the praise for this cameron trash ?
Poorly written as usual, characters are mostly ridiculous, what the hell ?
Do people only remember the final scene with the duel against Alien Queen ?
Explain to me how this is great SF...
Alien was a horror film in space, mildly sci-fi.
Aliens was an OORAH Marines trope action shoot em up film in space.
They are both excellent examples of their genres, which are not shared between the two films.
Literally the point is that they're a dumbass group of marines led by an inexperienced, green officer being fed into the meat grinder so the company can get their own ayy lmao
you're just a dipshit
>not "getting" Aliens
Maybe once your balls drop, kid.
>for what it was trying to be
This. Why can't people just accept that this film wasn't trying to be the same kind of film as Alien (horror with some sci-fi lip service) and shouldn't be judged as such.
If Aliens is an 8.4 or less, what is a 10/10 in the genre?
Faggots like OP are just dismissive because it has guns, explosions and frequently quoted phrases. Forget the amazing atmosphere, set design and special effects because it can't possibly compare to Woman in the Dunes.
Seconded. The extras on the anthology goes in-depth on this. Cameron knew he couldn't do Alien better, and nothing he did would stand up against it (if it was the same thing). This is why Alien 3 is shit. It's just a shittier remake/retread of the first one. Anyways Cameron decided to go in a different direction and it turned out great.
Some people just can't appreciate good action and effects. I would say OP is a bitch, but my mother enjoys action and violence so it can't be that. Maybe he's just a faggot artfag who can't enjoy a beautiful action and effects-heavy movie with great social commentary that builds upon the original. I bet he hates Predator 1 and Rambo 2 as well. What a faggot.
