Alien 1979

From Amazon: A landmark of science fiction and horror, Alien arrived in 1979 between Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back as a stylishly malevolent alternative to George Lucas's space fantasy. Partially inspired by 1958's It! The Terror from Beyond Space, this instant classic set a tone of its own, offering richly detailed sets, ominous atmosphere, relentless suspense, and a flawless ensemble cast as the crew of the space freighter Nostromo, who fall prey to a vicious creature (designed by Swiss artist H.R. Giger) that had gestated inside one of the ill-fated crew members. In a star-making role,...

Alien Movie Review by James (2/4/2012)

In the year of 1977, the studio 20th Century Fox released a little known film entitled "Star Wars" to the general public, which changed the notion of science fiction. And we all know what a success that was, as it spawned many imitators and parodies. But two years later in 1979, 20th Century Fox released the movie "Alien"...

Alien Movie Review by Filmkiller (7/6/2010)

I heard Hitchcock once talk about a scenario that could be depicted in two different ways. Within a restaurant there's a bomb, and you could show it explode immediately or tick away as the patrons continue eating with no knowledge of the danger. While I'm paraphrasing, one creates tension, suspense, while the other shows...

Alien Movie Review by Chris (2/6/2008)

It has taken me a while to actually sit down and watch Alien, but now Im really happy that I did. It has been considered possibly one of the best sc fi films of all time, I dont think that much of it, but I definately loved it. Ridley Scotts directing is absoulutely amazing and done perfectly, the suspense in here is just...

Alien Movie Review by Bobby B (1/30/2008)

The tension in Alien is like a screw turning. It starts with the title sequence, the letters that form almost without you seeing them, becoming complete before you realize they're there. The story begins with a cargo space ship, the Nostromo, essentially a cosmic eighteen-wheeler, waking up in space. It, along with its...

Alien Movie Review by Movie Addict (6/17/2007)

Sigourney Weaver in panties. You can't see Ripley's balls, but she has them.

Ridley Scott directed a winner here. I don't need to list all the awards this film won and was considered for; let's just say it was a sh*tload.

I am not a sci-fi buff, but I was attached like glue to this film from start to finish. The horror...
