While there are many who will argue that Ridley Scott's "Alien" is still the pinnacle of the franchise, there is an equal number who argue passionately for James Cameron's "Aliens" as the high point in the series.

The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters Ever
Over a month ago, perhaps feeling daunted by the seemingly endless summer season stretching out in front of us and the sheer volume of popcorn we were going to have to eat, we brought you our list of The 20 Worst Summer Blockbusters Of All Time. But now that we’re in the thick of it, and we’ve had a few more decent big titles open (“22 Jump Street,” “Edge of Tomorrow” and “X-Men: Days of Future Past” all had their charms) we’re turning that frown upside down, and bringing you our rundown of the 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of all time.

Well, actress Sigourney Weaver is certainly a chatty Cathy as of late. It’s probably because “Ghostbusters” celebrated its thirtieth anniversary last week and now everyone’s getting all misty and nostalgic about the movie (including us, we Ranked The Movies Of Summer 1984 and looked at The 20 Greatest Movie Theme Songs Of The 1980s in its honor). And so in a recent Vanity Fair piece looking back at everyone’s favorite spook busters, Weaver was asked about “Ghostbusters 3.”

If you’re the kind of person that loves to work Newt’s infamous “They mostly come out at night…Mostly” line into every conversation that you can, you might think you’re pretty well-versed in the world of James Cameron’s “Aliens.” Since the film’s release in 1986 there have been plenty of interviews, documentaries, and discussions given about the sci-fi classic, but none are as comprehensive as the one you can view below.
