the spacecraft nostromo is on a return trip to earth with a seven-member crew in stasis: captain dallas (tom skerritt), executive officer kane (john hurt), warrant officer ripley (sigourney weaver), navigator lambert (veronica cartwright), science officer ash (ian holm), and the engineers parker (yaphet kotto) and brett (harry dean stanton). detecting a mysterious transmission from a nearby planetoid, possibly a distress signal. following standard company policy for such situations, the ship lands on the planetoid, sustaining damage from the planetoid's dusty atmosphere in the process. parker... read more

ce soir etait ma toute première soirée à vie d'halloween où je me retrouvais seul avec mon chat. j'ai donc décidé de regarder pour la toute première fois alien (oui oui). les décors et les effets sont incroyables et donnent encore des croûtes à manger à ce qui se fait aujourd'hui. l'ambiance creep spatiale est au rendez-vous. de l'horreur science-fiction à l'état pur. un film qui etait clairement avant son temps. disons qu'il etait temps que j'y donne mon temps. read more

director's cut, bluray version. (sadly, it's been too long to remember the original/theatrical version in such detail that i notice the differences.) at a still lean 2 hours, it's perfection. "i admire its purity." oh, ridley scott, where did you go so wrong? read more

the franchise challenge - alien essential 1970s movies halloween fright nights vol 1 alien:  i didnt think much of this when i watched it way back the first time but as i got older i actually appreciated and loved this more n more. its a proper sci-fi horror film the other movies in this genre try to match but never quite reach this heights. the acting is so natural it feels like were just looking in on crew of the nostromo rathe than watching a film. all the cast is great. proper jumps which still get me now ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️&1/2 read more

this movie starts off boring, but the moment they decide to keep the alien they got from the egg onboard, i laughed to myself. "they're all going to die," i said aloud. this point is when the movie got interesting for me. most of the crew did indeed die, this is presumably why the movie doesn't waste too much time on them, you won't even remember their names unless you pay attention. this is ultimately ripley's story, the third officer and most competent character in the film. as the crew gets picked off one by one, ripley gets more and more fed up with the whole situation, being ignored read more

alien is a masterpiece. it is not only one of the best science fiction films ever made, but also a milestone in the horror genre. the countless imitations and the many spin-offs pale in comparison to ridley scott's original from 1979. director scott relies completely on his ability to create an oppressive atmosphere. for this he uses beautiful images that all radiate threat. a threat that is reinforced by the claustrophobic sets and the realistic acting. in addition, sigourney weavers main character marked a turning point for female representation in the genre. ellen ripley transforms from a... read more

Combines the fear of the unknown with claustrophobia in both it's writing and cinematography. Excellent practical effects. Great stuff!
