Emily's Top 5 Movies

Captain America: Civil War | Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers | Pirates of the Caribbean | Aliens


I first watched part of Alien when I was 9 years old, and while it was pretty scary, I found it intriguing. I watched the sequel, Aliens, last summer. Its an incredible sci-fi horror movie for its time. The alien itself, the Xenomorph, was actually only on screen for a small portion of the first movie, but it's staged so that the audience knows that the Xenomorph is always there. However, in the sequel, it's full fledged war against the Xenomorphs and their Queen, so we get a much better look at the aliens.
