Ash: Ripley, for God's sake, this is the first time that we've encountered a species like this. It has to go back. All sorts of tests have to be made.
Ripley: Ash, are you kidding? This thing bled acid. Who knows what it's gonna do when it's dead?

Both masterpieces in their genre (both are sci-fi) and both are some of the greatest films ever made. I seen and heard of this conversation so many times that there should be a Team Alien and Team Blade Runner now, so that fans can finally st... read more

" - Rewatched | Third time In many ways you could think of Alien as Jaws in space. It manages to keep and maintain suspense in the same way as Jaws do, and it releases tension just as successfully when we finally get to see the alien. "Less is more" works brilliantly here, letting us just suck in the atmosphere. The alien is, by the way, perhaps the most awesomely designed monster in film history."
