    I have a feeling there are going to be a lot of retaliation votes here.
    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    I don't know how much retaliation there will be... I voted for Stand By Me because I like it better than Back To The Future by a small margin. Aliens to me is a far superior film so that continues to get my vote. If the finals is ESB vs Aliens I will vote Aliens and that would be by the thinnest of margins. Hell I have a half sleeve tattoo on my leg with a Xenomorph battling a stormtooper...that's how close it is to me.

    Everybody votes differently, that's the beauty of these tournaments. For me, I don't care if I prefer a film over another film. If the film I don't prefer had a bigger impact on the world of cinema and is a larger testament to the decade we are debating, then I pick that film. That's just me.

    So was The Godfather II, Terminator 2, The Dark Knight, The Empire Strikes Back. What's your point?

    I always thought the general opinion on the Aliens franchise was that Aliens is better than Alien, much in the way that most people consider Terminator 2 better than Terminator.

    Yeah, I'm not gathering what the issue is here. Is this an all sequels are bad situation?

    I have posted about this before. The two movies are entirely different genres. If you like horror more, you probably prefer Alien. If you like action more, you probably prefer Aliens. I love both movies.
