Redditors who had the privilege of seeing Alien and then Aliens in theaters… what were the reactions like?

I'm a big fan of Alien and Aliens. I saw a post recently regarding The Matrix and how it was such an interesting time for movie goers because the movie had a great advertising scheme and then the movie was so unique that it was highly regarded and talked about by everyone. I'm curious if Alien as a horror flick and then Aliens as a horror/action sequel were both received after their releases.

If you saw them in theaters or maybe you saw them later in life, what were the reactions and what are your thoughts in these two absolute classics.

Cheers!
