    Interesting fact: If the director's cut were to be made canon, then the sequels would be completely invalidated. By the fact that when Ripley discovered what happened to the crew as they were taken, you see the "hive" that they were in were forming them into eggs, thereby showing that the creature's reproductive methods are completely different then what we got in later films.

    I always thought the Xenomorph looked cheesy as hell. Just a big plasticy thing dripping with lubricant. OMG and the baby Xenomorph runny away after exiting that dude's body was hilariously bad. Everything else is pretty damn good.

    I'm surprised Stuckmann saw this movie at 15 years old. I saw Alien (1979) in 2000, when I was 11 and maybe I was too young. However Aliens, Alien 3 & Resurrection I first time heard in 2005. All those years I thought Alien (1979) was stand-alone movie. lol.

    I remember seeing Alien when I was in my late teens. I had got the Alien Legacy set at a charity store. After seeing the theatrical edition I watched the directors cut... Oh my God. I fell in love with this franchise. The atmosphere, the acting, the cat... And, of course, the alien itself. Its' slow movements, its lack of expression, the sexual imagery... Just... Everything about this movie is golden. I agree with everything in your review.

    I was very happy to hear how much you liked this movie. Many prefer the immediate sequel over the original but I'm very much the opposite where I can't stand the cartoonish acting of Aliens compared to the realistic acting of Alien.

  • The Purple Butterfly

    My only complaint about this movie is that it's so dark for a lot of the movie. But maybe that adds to the fear factor?

    I'd give Alien a "C". By the time I watched it I already knew what was going to happen. It was hilarious to see the outdated effects and cliche plot elements fold out. Would be cool to see a re-make.

    Seen this film dozens of times and just realised how underwhelmed the crew were at discovering an alien spacecraft and humanoid lifeform, as soon as they arrive on the deck of the alien ship the first thing they do is say ohh look there's a hole in the ground let's investigate, here's an idea investigate the the seven foot alien sitting in captains chair or the fucking controls for the ship 😕

    Was it hard for Ripley to not tell the Crew "I told you so" throughout this film? She was yelled at by her boss and the crew and even got smacked in the face, all along she was right.

  • Stranger than Fiction
    Stranger than Fiction 2 months ago +1

    Watch Ash in the Birth Scene right before the Alien breaks through, Kanes last twitch, so to speak. Ash grabs his arm, slams it down onto the table real hard, thus "nailing" him to the table and giving the Alien more power to be Born. The look on Ashs face, the brutality in it is terrible, and to know that he let the Thing grow inside the unsuspecting CORPSE which he now rapes and brutalizes is a real shocker. After all These years the Alien might have lost its "Terror", but Ash gets more disturbing and inhuman each time we watch the movie. Ist a masterpiece bý Holm.

    I always find the characters die of stupidity. Yeah, let's stick out your heads when you are exploring an unknown organism. When hunting something obviously dangerous, it's a good idea to walk away on your own to find a cat and not even stay alert. They keep separating and get killed.

    I don't care if people get triggered but is a 7.5/10 for me, it was kinda boring and slow in the first hour, aliens is better tho, that's how sequels should have done.

  • Bear Roebuck

    Good point on the protagonist given at the time of this movie's release Sigourney Weaver was an unknown actor. Today we would identify her as the protagonist right away. I was also impressed by the constant low engine hum through the entire movie and how much unrelenting dread it caused. I saw this movie as a double feature along with Johns Carpenter's The Thing at a drive-in when I was eight years old. Arguably the best two monster movies ever made. I have LOVED movies since that fateful night.

    For me, the original cinema release of Alien is the best version, simply for the pacing of the action. Don't get me wrong, I really like the additional footage in the directors cut, but I feel the original release is the better version of the film. Absolutely a classic.

    I actually don't like this movie, and I hate to say that. The characters were forgettable(minus Ripley) and the pacing is ridiculously slow in my opinion.
    I also don't find it as scary or engaging as other movies from that era like Jaws or The Exorcist. I will say the sequel, Aliens, is amazing though.

    I feel whole heartedly that the video game Alien Isolation was the perfect game because it delivered the fear aspect of what it was like to be a team member dealing with the dangerious predator.

    • Mai Nem
      Mai Nem 5 months ago

      Great game - my all time favourite.
      Taking on this one-hit-kill menace is the highlight of my gaming life.
      I still get chills loading up the game, and that spooky menu music comes up.
      A brilliant game - and, just like the movie, it keeps the powder dry ... then unleashes pure terror. Except that there are no horror tropes to grab onto ... it's just you versus the alien. And an amazing dynamic score ratcheting up the tension.
      The effect is that you are effectively the star of a new Alien movie.

    I watched this movie (the directors cut first) when i was really young, And i loved all of it. theres so much i could say about it in one comment, but i need to say this.
    You're 100% right about there being no clear cut protagonist for awhile. i was a kid at the time. But when i watched this movie for the first time, i did feel like i was in the ship, and experiencing the crews delima. And being a young boy, i obviously thought that dallas would be the protag, and expected his character to last the whole movie. The scene where he dies was done so well, and it completely jarred my reality on a protagnist was, and how you could write the story without complete focus on them. I must say it was done well, because i really thought dallas was gunna be the soul survivor when i was a kid.

    i dont know what it is but i couldnt get into this movie. neither the sequel. i felt that the first one was a fine movie. but i KNOW that its an amazing movie and i understand why it is. i just never felt it. and the second one was build up to me like some starship trooper shit. but when i watched the movie it wasnt at all and that disappointed me so my experience was a bit ruined. i will try and watch both again and hope that i can get more into them on second viewing. so far though i feel like predator is better but i KNOW that the first alien at least is better than predator. and i think the second one is on the same level but i just feel like predator is better. i liked that movie more. i loved predator actually

    Possibly the best science fiction movie ever made. A lot of people say 2001, but that film felt really cold and detached (I guess was the point). Others say Blade Runner, and film buffs say Metropolis. But Alien has the relatable and iconic characters like Ellen Ripley, and the all time great movie monster. The way they had the synthetic as a secondary villain just shows how well-written the plot was.

    Here are my three favorite "Alien" films:
    1-"Alien" (1979)
    2-"Aliens" (1986)
    3-"Alien: Covenant" (2017)
    These three films are incredible in my opinion! think the other "Alien" movies are absolute shit! They are no where near as horrifying, emotionally engaging and philosophicaly engaging, as the other three movies, I just previously mentioned in the list.
