    Even though I own this on VHS, I hadn't seen it in a couple of years. For that, I decided to watch the original theatrical release, which Ridley Scott has said he prefers. The film is a slow-yet-perfectly paced suspense/horror film that features the alien slowly wiping out the Nostromo crew before facing Ripley herself. I loved Scott restraint (kinda like Spielberg's with Jaws) in showing the creature. Because of that, we are treated to perfectly intense and nerve-wrecking scenes…

    This movie has a set up that almost every horror movie has. 1 evil monster kills everyone except one who he/she defeats at the last minute, this movie is no exception, but it somehow makes it a phenomenal movie. The acting is outstanding, the shots are superb, and the alien specie is unique in every aspect. I doubt you (yes you the reader) have not seen this film, but just in case you haven't I just have one thing to say. WATCH IT!

    Alien es un clásico y todos lo saben. Algunos incluso lo saben sin haber visto la película. Esto es porque Alien introdujo muchos elementos que hoy son claves en las cintas de terror y de ciencia ficción. Alien, por ejemplo, nos hizo sentir terror en el espacio. No el terror casi intelectual de 2001 Odisea en el Espacio, sino un terror visceral y claustrofóbico, aumentado por los estupendos valores de producción y la sin igual y hasta entonces novedosa imagineria…

    Yeah it's good, but it doesn't have Bill Paxton and Vazquez.

    'In space nobody can hear you scream' was the great tagline for this film, Ridley Scott's classic sci-fi horror Alien. Sigourney Weaver is a strong female lead in her breakout role, although I was impressed by the whole cast, especially the girl who plays Lambert, she really brings a sense of fear and desperation to the surface of her character. Alien has aged very well considering it was made way back in 1979. I love the different set designs. Sometimes…

    Έμενα αυτά τα sci-fi δεν μου αρέσουν οπότε ήξερα εκ των προτέρων ότι δεν θα μου αρέσει το "alien"... έχε χάρη που ένα από τα new years resolutions μου ήταν να δω όλες τις ταινίες που περιέχονται στο βιβλίο του Roger Ebert "Τhe Great Movies".
