A Movie Ranking: Sigourney Weaver

When you think of an iconic actress Sigourney Weaver is undoubtedly a part of that special list. Ever since I saw her in ALIEN I was a fan. Today, for this week’s Movie Ranking, I wanted to highlight one of my favorite actresses. Enjoy!

Fun fact. Did you know that Sigourney Weaver is 71-years-old?

Um…wow! Okay, let’s get to the ranking.

7. Finding Dory

Albert Brooks, Ellen DeGeneres, Ty Burrell, Ed O'Neill, Kaitlin Olson, and Hayden Rolence in Finding Dory (2016)

As a child, Finding Nemo was one of my favorite movies. Finding Dory isn’t.

6. Wall-E

Ben Burtt and Elissa Knight in WALL·E (2008)

Wall-E isn’t a horrible movie but compared to Up, which it beat for Best Animated Picture, there’s no contest.

5. Ghostbusters

Advance, 1 Sheet

Ghostbusters is one of those movies that is iconic for a reason. It’s so much fun and honestly, I don’t watch it enough. I love Sigourney Weaver in this film. It’s a nice change of pace from her role as Ripley in ALIEN and yet she still manages to command the screen.

4. Ghostbusters II

Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Harold Ramis, and Ernie Hudson in Ghostbusters II (1989)

I actually like Ghostbusters II more than the first one but honestly, I’ve only seen it once so I can’t exactly give a full verdict. But once again, Sigourney Weaver was great. That much, I do remember.

3. Avatar

Zoe Saldana and Sam Worthington in Avatar (2009)

While basic, Avatar is made really, really well, making it one of the best movies ever made. The imagination, the world-building, the characters, the music, everything stands out in a very exciting and unique way that still hasn’t been replicated. And Sigourney Weaver manages to shine as the stern but caring Dr. Grace Augustine who (SPOILER ALERT) unfortunately dies in the film. 😟


Aliens (1986)

I mean come on, this movie is amazing and Sigourney Weaver is at her absolute best. Unlike ALIEN where we just getting introduced to Ripley, the sequel allows her to shine, showcasing her vulnerable moments when she’s facing trauma and how she overcomes her fear and turns into a gun-wielding hero. It’s so amazing!


Alien (1979)

Okay, it’s a fact. ALIEN is one of the best movies ever made. Undoubtedly. Nothing like it has been made since. The film is movie gold. The story, the horror, this movie never gets old and Sigourney Weaver is an icon because of this film. She was amazing in this movie and instantly became one of my favorite heroines of all time.

So, there’s my A Movie Ranking featuring Sigourney Weaver.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fascinating day.
