'Game over, man!' ('Aliens')
One of the greatest things the "Alien" franchise did -- particularly in James Cameron's action-oriented 1986 sequel -- was to subvert the trope of the musclebound, Stallone-esque action hero by giving us a woman who could own the ass of any man who got in her way. Bill Paxton's character in many ways is a deconstruction of the Stallone myth -- the blustery, testosterone-fueled male blowhard who deep down probably isn't as tough as he pretends to be. Bill Paxton's simpering signature line is so iconic it's been printed on t-shirts.
