    One of the most original, suspenseful & terrifying films you're ever going to come across, Ridley Scott's breakthrough feature is a masterful blend of horror & science-fiction and is a triumph of imagination, art direction, set design, special effects, unsettling score, perfect cast, terrific performances & quality narration that today is widely & rightly regarded as one of the greatest motion pictures of all time.

    Alien follows a seven members crew en-route to Earth on board a huge commercial ship when their journey is…

    The strange thing about Alien is that I can never seem to find any faults in it. It's truly a masterpiece. The atmosphere, the attention to detail, the great female lead. Allot of people often choose Aliens as their favourite film of the Alien franchise. I have to disagree. Don't get me wrong, I love Aliens, but something will always stand out in the original for me. One of my all time favourites.

    “En el espacio nadie puede oír tus gritos”. Probablemente, el markéting cinematográfico nunca haya parido –osado verbo para usarlo en esta película- un eslogan más genial. Y es que, a estas alturas, lo demás es Historia: emoción y terror gracias a un “suspense” que no necesita de enseñar al bicho para crear angustia. Por no hablar del entonces atrevídisimo protagonismo femenino. Sigourney Weaver siempre le estará agradecida a la teniente Ripley.

    Muy recomendable.

    The pacing. The sense of pure discovery. That discovery turning into this manifestation of humans great fears. I still really dont know how Scott was able to put in a full minute of someone just having water drip onto his face, but it works...it works very well. Its just a masterful control over pacing; semingly a perfection and elevation of the slasher\bmovie type that came before.

    Honestly, though, the aesthetic and kentic abilities would have been for naught had the…

    For a film highly regarded as one of cinema's finest films, it kind of falls flat in some departments of film making. It does have some predictability, even though I knew what happens in the end, I still put myself in the shoes of a first time watcher of "Alien", and I still saw it coming. Sigourney Weaver was so heavily placed as the main protagonist that you knew she was going to get out of this. But my main…

    I will never get tired of that title card. I remember reading an article somewhere saying something like: "The Alien title is placed at the top of the screen, reminding us to keep watching the stars." I think that's a pretty interesting idea.

    "Crew expendable."
    The facehugger is some real scary shit, it used to make me paranoid as a kid, so many sleepless nights, damn you…

    Great movie. Vagina symbolism. Face rape. Sigourney Weaver's Pussy.

    I think that covers anything I have to say about this one. Just know I have the same opinion on this film as all other cinephiles with a brain: THIS MOVIE IS PERFECT AND I'LL FACE RAPE YOU IF YOU SAY OTHERWISE.
