Two nearly-perfect action flicks, both from the 80s... The aliens vs. Herr Gruber, Ripley-Hicks-Bishop vs. ...well, John McClane.
But man, I love Bruce Willis. Yippie-ki-yay.
One of the hardest choices I've faced here so far. Aliens has a slight advantage since I saw it first, and the creatures make better villains than Euro-terrorists. Although, Alan Rickman can't be topped... Still, I'm going with Aliens. (the sentry-guns won me over)
Alan Rickman makes Die Hard a winner
That's the action face-off for the ages. Aliens because I can watch it all the time, not just at Christmas.
Aliens no question. I love Die Hard and all, but there is not another action movie out there quite like Aliens.
Difficult choice. Aliens is the definitive female action hero role, but I can't discount Die Hard inspiring enumerable imitators. Plus, who thinks of Bruce Willis as a Moonlighting guy that transitioned to movies?
Die Hard has a special place in my heart. Plus it's Aliens rather than Alien. I have to go with Die Hard. Give me Hans Landa and the Johnson Detectives.
