Star Wars not all it's cracked up to be? Shocking! well not at all really, Star Wars is largely pap. It's entertaining but still pap nonetheless, people who regard it as the greatest sci-fi film ever probably think Battle of the Bulge is a better war film than The Dambusters.

However I do have to disagree on your Alien/Aliens notions, Aliens is nowhere near the genius of Alien. It's a shoddy, manipulative and at times terribly written film, with some nice visuals and a good soundtrack. Alien is a masterpiece of film making with a brilliant story and the kind of horror pacing that is all but lost in today's cinema. Additionally Alien3 isn't all that bad, there's some fine acting there and the denouement is refreshingly bleak.

Myself, I rather think that the best Science Fiction film ever is probably 12 Monkeys, but if we're going by the old Chris Foss, space-ships and robots ideology I'd probably side with 2001.
