A thriller sci fi kicked up a notch, Aliens is the complete package. The storyline of Newt and Ripley, the nerve - wracking beats that play during an xenomorph encounter, and the duel between Ripley and the Queen are what make it a moviegoers' delight. But I still find that Alien is better.

Did the math, and I do believe, on a purely technical level, "Get away from her you, bitch!" does in fact pass the Bechdel test.

Another sequel which isn't really better than the original, even though it's bigger and more action packed. James Cameron focused more on the sudden scares and big action sequences at the expense of the slow building tension, which was present in the original Alien thanks to Ridley Scott.

However, the true star of the movie is Sigourney Weaver. Her performance in Alien and Aliens has been both strong and powerful throughout the series. Officially speaking, like Arnold Schwarzenegger has his Terminator franchise and Sylvester Stallone has his Rocky franchise, Sigourney Weaver has a strong influence over the Alien franchise. No Alien franchise could be complete without her in the leading role.
