Ripley vs. The Alien Queen (1986)


Today marks the 30th anniversary of James Cameron’s classic Aliens starring Sigourney Weaver, Bill Paxton and Michael Biehn.

It’s one of the most quotable movies ever made and for me at least it’s the best of the series (forgive me Sir Ridley).

This climactic battle has Ripley taking on the Mama Alien Queen who comes a calling after Ripley torched her babies.
