We’ve always insisted this Jamy Cameron effort was better than the first Riddler Scott number and we’re sticking to our guns. We don’t really want to not see the alien, to be honest; we prefer to see hundreds of them leaping across trestle tables and slavering nastily as opposed to just one with shifty eyes lurking around sets made of matt black egg-boxes. And the last sequence with the queen alien and Ripley is better than anything in the first as well (look, don’t argue!). We would like to take the opportunity to point out at this juncture that Alien 3 isn’t that bad either. It has Brian Glover in it for heaven’s sake!
