She’s not a sidekick, arm candy, or a damsel to be rescued. Ripley isn’t a fantasy version of a woman. Ripley is pushy, aggressive, rude, injured, suffering from post-traumatic syndrome, not wearing makeup, tired, smart, maternal, angry, empathetic, and determined to save others, even at great cost to herself…

If there were aliens, especially those with human form, we would have seen them already. Or at least doctors, say during an autopsy. But then I realized there would be undercover alien doctors, so it would be covered up. So I’m convinced there are aliens here and we just don’t know it yet.
