I once said somewhere that whether one prefers Alien or Aliens depends on whether you generally prefer action or horror as a genre. I mean, the fact that the two movies are entirely separate freakin' GENRES makes it sort of unfair to compare one to the other. Two great examples of their respective genres, but really there's nothing deep or profound about either one. Alien sort of taps into this primal fear of... being slaughtered by an inscrutable monster without the possibility of ever being rescued or discovered, and then Aliens has these maternal and anti-military themes. Whatever. There is essentially no wrong answer here.
