93. Aliens (1986)
You know, Burke, I don't know which species is worse. You don't see them *#&@ing each other over for a !#*@%$* percentage.
Ridley Scott's "Alien" may have introduced the amazing facehugger to the silver screen, but James Cameron's sequel is what truly kicked off the franchise. This isn't to take anything away from the 1979 film. It is one of the creepiest, claustraphobic sci-fi films ever, but Ripley cranked it up a notch in this one and ensured that acid-bleeding behemoths would hang around in fan-fiction, comics, novels, video-games, and movies for the next 25 years and beyond.
