    While I don't love Alien as much as the majority does, I still find it to be a well-directed, unsettling, brilliant piece of sci-fi entertainment. The only character I felt really stood out was of course Ripley. Although, she's not given too many scenes to show off her skills, Ripley still kicks-ass. But, the rest of the acting is pretty good as well.

    What is probably the best thing about Alien is its slower approach and claustrophobic atmosphere.I appreciated the…

    Rewatched thanks to the most recent episode of Let's Scare Matthew Price to Death, in which he discusses ALIEN with Norm Wilner.

    You may recall a few months back that i watched 'Aliens' at my friends house due to the popular request of his family. Now... this made me uncomfortable. I was planning a re-watch of the franchise, and the fact i was practically being forced to begin with Aliens pissed me off. But you gotta do what you gotta do. I was going to leave it, and re-watch the franchise in the future, but i think i'll just do it now…

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I just bought the Alien quadrilogy on DVD at Barnes & Noble today. It was on sale for only $15, and I needed to at least watch two of the films to cross off my list, so why not. Unfortunately, I was very tired, and might have rested my eyes for a few moments during the film... But I got the gist of everything!

    The film itself was pretty good. I again felt spoiled by popular culture to all the surprises…

    It's educational to watch this in 2015 and see how simple you can keep motivations. There’s no appeal-to-sentiment backstory here (“I gotta get home to my kid, who I haven’t seen in a year and also he has space cancer.”) Just get the job done. Why? Because it’s our job. Typical Hollywood motivation is “Do this, get rewarded.” This is the blue-collar version: “Do this, or don’t get paid.”

    Love the red underlighting on Ash as he’s sitting in his…

    Even today, in Ridley Scott's classic the tension is near unbearable; the scares effective. The set design is marvelous and the low-key lighting and misty atmosphere that fill the USCSS Nostromo fit perfectly. By now some of Alien's most recognizable scenes have been parodied too many times for them to keep their shock factor, but I can only imagine how it would have been to go into a theatre as an unknowing viewer in 1979 to be surprised by the…

    The moment in this big-budget fright flick in which John Hurt gives birth to a killer alien that tears its way out of his chest was also the birth of a new wave of sci-fi violence in movies. Meanwhile, there isn't anything new about the story. Killer aliens have been popping off humans since the 1950s, but this is the most influential film of its time to go into outer space dressed in horror movie clothes and that plays by…

    A genuinely chilling and frightening film. The atmosphere is dark, tense and very scary. The film moves along slowly to begin with, gently building up the tension until all hell breaks loose in the final scenes. The famous Alien is a fantastic design that manages to make viewers feel fear and disgust. Later films would reveal more of the alien creatures but I feel keeping it hidden and in the shadows for most of the film actually makes it more…
