When Ripley's lifepod is found by a salvage crew over 50 years later, she finds that terra-formers are on the very planet they found the alien species. When the company sends a family of colonists out to investigate her story, all contact is lost with the planet and colonists. They enlist Ripley and the colonial marines to return and search for answers.
Aliens and Alien are both fantastic films and different ones and I think the better one comes down to taste.
The Sci-Fi Slob
Low and behold, they loose contact with the colony and Ripley is sent in with a platoon of colonial marines, and a company slime-ball named Carter Burke.
From the start the film has the same dark and tense atmosphere of the first film.
