    Upon revisiting this on a whim tonight, I've decided to re-watch the entire Alien franchise over the next week or so. Here's your warning: influx of Alien reviews incoming.

    "Alien" is a perfect horror film. We don't get our first glimpse of the monster until half-way through, and from then on we meet again only in brief encounters. The film instead opts to terrify us with a mounting sense of dread, brought on by the suffocating atmosphere, pitch-perfect score,…

    An exchange between my father and I while we watched this:

    Dad: "Jake Gyllenhaal looks so much better in this."

    Me: "Than in what?"

    Dad: "No Country For Old Men"

    Me: "... he wasn't in that"

    Dad: "Yes he was, he had that stupid hair and the oxygen tank."
