"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, 2 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

HV Presents: 10 Most Vile Villains of Cinema! (10 movies items)

"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! "

How I'd Do It...Thrillers! (100 movies items)

"The face-hugger scene, the infamous bust a gut scene, the first glance as the 'alien', and a dynamite script with some cool crisp direction. Every single moment of this film is refreshing and authentic. So little room to move or even breathe. You have no idea what to expect. And every single time this comes on tv or I pop it in the VCR/DVD machine, I get goosebumps!..."

"Alien directed by Ridley Scott Ever since I was a kid I used to hear my friends talk this movie 'Alien' and its hero, Ripley. Well, I had an idea of the basic concept but I still wondered. "Who's this Ripley dude?" Little did I realize the dude was Sigourney Weaver. Nowadays, you'll take it for granted. If there ever was a shortage of strong female heroes in action movies, I think that's covered today with movies like Haywire, Underworld, Resident Evil, Salt, etc etc... But how many of those"

New-to-Me Films of 2012 (366 movies items)

"In essence, Alien is a conventional horror film - traits encapsulated in its characters and plot - with conventional sci-fi settings. These characteristics, however, result in a work that is anything but ordinary. Ridley Scott creates an atmosphere that is tense from the very first seconds of the film, and doesn't not waver through its entire duration. The level of claustrophobia and mystery is at an all-time high, clashing well with the general terror toward the brilliantly conceived title anta"
