Aliens

Corrected entry: When the Alien bursts in through the window of the APC after rescuing the marines it clearly sprays red blood when it smashes the window, even though the Alien has yellowish acidic blood.

Correction: It's not red blood - the broken glass is reflecting red light from somewhere

Corrected entry: It is hard to believe that since people have been living on LV-426 for 20 years, there are only 158. After that time there would have been at least a few hundred.

Correction: These people are they to construct an atmosphere generator (or similar), not to populate the place: its highly likely people would work there and leave after a few years as engineers do in foreign countries here and be replaced.

Corrected entry: In the previous movie, LV-426 had a ring system around it, yet in this movie, when the Sulaco enters orbit, the ring is no longer there.

Correction: LV-426 does not have a ring system. It is a moon of a much larger planet that does have a ring system. The planet and its rings can be seen low in the sky in "Alien".

Corrected entry: Given Bishop's crucial role in saving the day throughout Aliens, doesn't it seem odd that human marines are used at all in the future? He's smarter, tougher, has quicker reflexes and can be mass-produced, as Alien 3 will testify. And considering the corporate scam being played out, you'd think they'd be more careful than to send in soldiers when they could have simply made a dozen androids to assist Ripley - who could still play host to an alien foetus.

Correction: Humans beings are cheaper. The Company is very interested in the bottom line, and they just consider human beings to be more expendable than what is most likely a multi-billion dollar android.
