“Ridley Scott's sci-fi masterpiece, hands down! One of my favorite thrillers with amazing isolation in space themes.” read more

“Review from http://www.squabblebox.co.uk

Space had seldom seemed dangerous before Ridley Scott applied his no-nonsense approach to this most celebrated of creature features. In reality, the cosmos holds infinite peril; its darkest reaches unfathomable, and its scope reminding us that our place in the universe is small. What lies ahead for us to discover, and will we be happy when we get there?

Alien might have the visual splendour of 2001 (1968), but its leagues removed from the giddy exploration of space that Stanley Kubrick’s sterile classic provided. Scott’s world is formed in reality; a grimy, hostile existence that smacks of truth. The travellers here don’t go on a pleasant adventure like the fairytale of Star Wars (1977), and they find no enrichment in the d” read more

“Alien was a brilliant peice of work, it mixed Sci-Fi and Horror in way no one ever seen before. I remember my mother telling her reaction upon watching it when it was frist released, and how she was scared out of her wits as well as she watched people walking out because it was too scary. You are introduced to the characters at first like most films, but than the focus is on the little friend they pick up. Kane one of the crew of the Nostromo encounters an alien which at first is a facehugger. Kane wakes up feeling fine, but then the horror begins and one of the most scariest creatures ever imagined comes to life. Forget ET this alien is not a friendly one, and the crew soon find out just how nasty it can get. Also this movie gave birth to one of movies most loved characters Ripley, a very” read more

“A bold move, a short walk from the hand of a camera and handled brilliantly claustrophobic space, disturbing. Thus was born one of the greatest landmarks of science fiction: the ship Nostromo.

The first sequence of "Alien" is so overwhelming, that has the privilege of being one of the best starts we've seen server. With a simple transition score and impressive, what is achieved during the first five minutes, in which only find picture and sound, nothing is to invite the viewer not only to get carried away to a distant fiction, but because to join the crew itself, and pass well, just one more. Something marvelous and rarely seen.

His characters begin to appear and glimpse thereupon roles they will play in a ship where the biggest problem may arise will an eggshell alien,” read more

"Alien I haven't watched many special features on this movie (even though I own the DVD) but I wonder if Ridley Scott asked "We're calling it 'Alien'? Isn't that a little too obvious?' No. It's perfect. "

Happy Vader posted a review 2 years, 4 months ago

“I believe that when discussing the awesomeness of Ridley Scott, the argument always, and I mean always, comes down to just two films: Alien and Blade Runner. 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 stick to one side and come up with which film is more widely adored. "Which side is this reviewer with", you may ask: Well, I'm more of a Blade Runner fan myself, so there you go. But this film ain't bad either, its just that Blade Runner has a far better story-telling with gorgeous effects and a great soundtrack!

Anyway, now to Alien: Can I offer a piece of advice? Do not watch the direct” read more

"Alien / Xenomorph This Ridley Scott masterpiece had a tremendous impact on sci-fi and action. H.R. Giger's titular character had an even bigger impact on screen monsters, making Alien (the character) one of the most recognizable movie creatures of all time. And also one of the most aggressive, ruthless and unforgiving. The only non-human in this list, Aliens, or Xenomorphs as they are known in Cameron's sequel, are the merciless of killers with a devastatingly painful way of killing their hos"

"REWATCHED "You still don't understand what you're dealing with, do you? Perfect organism. Its structural perfection is matched only by its hostility." @ Blu-ray 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 awesom"

"09.11. Blu-ray, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Ridley Scott Another major gap in my film education filled. The best film by Ridley Scott I've seen so far. A pure visual feast. Amazing lighting and absolute thrill - especially during the last 20 minutes or so. Also the characters are likable, the acting and dialogue isn't as hammy as it tends to be in these kinds of films and the effects haven't dated at all. Brilliant! "
