    What can one even say about this movie nowadays? Ridley Scott's Alien is one of the most influential and celebrated sci-fi and horror movies of all time. That alone - that it's equally as celebrated both in talks of horror-classics and sci-fi-classics - should say enough about how masterful this movie is. Because honestly, I can do no more than to follow the stream of love for this movie, but for the sake of a review talk a bit about…

    One of the greatest sci-fi horror films ever made where a crew from outer space deal with a mysterious alien that boards the ship as it features a phenomenal performance from Sigourney Weaver as Ripley.

    While ALIEN is, at a basic level, an updating of THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD, Ridley Scott got so much right in making ALIEN that it became the apex movie about an apex predator. The pacing is brilliant with a very gradual build as the danger slowly becomes apparent. The sets and ships are amazing, detailed, believably lived in constructs. The characters are everyday people with their own quirks and concerns. The creature creations are almost always credible and realistic…

    I purchased Alien on Blu-Ray, along with all the sequels, so it was about time that I got around to watching this classic. My youngest brother was keen to watch this, because it is the basis for a video game he's currently playing - I was just pleased that he was watching a film from the 70s!

    I've got to say, despite this being a first time watch for me, I knew next to everything that happened in this movie.…

    Movie 22 in my October's Horror film a day.

    Holy shit. So after years of felling guilty for not watching this movie, I decided to finally see it. Is not that I couldn’t or didn’t want to watch it, but I guess I was a bit intimidated by the movie, yes I know is silly, but I can’t describe it in any other way.

    At the end I kind of want to kick myself for not seeing this before. The…

    Here's the thing about Alien: the alien (xenomorph, I guess technically, but I think giving it even a scientific classification robs it of some terrifying mystique) is one of the few monsters in the history of monsters that's still actually frightening once you know what it looks like. Not that this one shoves it down your throat like a razor mouth-tongue, exactly.
    But nearly everything about this movie works so well, and has laid the foundation for so much that came after it. it's truly one of the most frightening movies of all time

    It took me far too long to see this film. Before I did I only understood its components from their place in the cultural zeitgeist. Despite my relative familiarity with the most famous scenes I found myself continually surprised, thrilled, and holding my breath in a way few other thrillers manage.
