Alien ★★★★★

4K, theatrical cut

The 4K copy was on sale so I had to pick it up. It looks stupid good in 2160p. The HDR is nuts on black backgrounds and it really enhances the second half of the film. Clarity is also unbelievably good. Film grain is present but not to an annoying degree.

Honestly forgot how good this film is. After watching the sorry excuse that is Alien: Covenant this film just shines even more. It's the perfect balance of tension, pacing, and payoff. As of the instalments we have now, only Aliens (then followed by Prometheus) comes close in terms of greatness, albeit for different reasons.
