Summer Fridays: Aliens


We’re down to our second to last Summer Fridays pick, and this one comes from Javier Barrios, our Acquisitions Manager. He chose ALIENS, the 1986 sequel to James Cameron’s classic science fiction thriller ALIEN.

“I was blown away by Cameron’s talent,” writes Javier. “As far as sequels go, it rivals EMPIRE STRIKES BACK.”

Check out one of Javier’s favorite scenes below. “This is a good scene because the fact that the guns they set up quickly run out of ammo gives the audience an extra level of suspense and anticipation,” he explains. You can also read the ALIENS script in our Library.
