Re: Which writers/directors would you have picked for ALIEN(S) sequels

Aliens just isn't my cup of tea, really.
I find Aliens painful to watch. Not because of the direction or the acting or the script -- all of those things hold up. It's James Horner's score. It's too distracting, because so much of it is cribbed from his two Star Trek scores, and I get a nasty case of cognitive dissonance. I expect to see Admiral Kirk stealing the Enterprise while Ripley is trying to save the Colonial Marines from a boneheaded move. "Bad move, Ripley," indeed.
