For once I think the sequel was better.

That's arguable.

The plot and characters were more interesting, but on the same token I felt like the effects ended up being more dated and that sorta choked it a bit.

I like 'em both a lot though.

great action movie. Amazing sequel

But the practical effects in aliens still hold up.... and the main character was a female

I never watched the OG or the sequel but they look amazing.

@Calebmar12 actually the first Alien movie more likely ends up in the Thriller/Horror genre, the sequels fit more with action movies.

That is the second alien movie

My favorite 80s action movie would probably have to be Highlander. :stuck_out_tongue:

Highlander Swap Force?

Right now I'm attempting to watch as many action movies as possible, so far I've watched Predator, The Matrix, The One, Walking Tall, Die Hard, Soldier, and a few others.
The only one I can't recommend is Walking tall.

It's the best fantasy-noir-action movie ever made!

Is that based off a book? I fell like I've heard the name before.

Nope. There have been quite a few (mostly terrible) spinoffs, though.
