A question almost every individual considers in their lifetime is this; do aliens exist? Where? Would they help save human kind?
Well the movie Alien reminds us that the aliens do not want to save human kind. I really feel this movie brought about a platform for sci-fi movies to excel upon. The quality of the movie for the time was unbelievable and not to mention, horrifying! The fact that alien blood can essentially melt human skin, flesh and bone is a hysterical concept!
By far, the first movie is my favourite in the Alien series as it was so new and refreshing compared to previous, almost cartoonish depictions of aliens.
Alien is one of my favorite sci-fi films of all time. The visual effects are outstanding for 1979, especially when they got onto the Zenomorph planet. Speaking of which, the Zenomorph is super terrifying and really cool-looking. The atmosphere is dark, scary, and incredible. The story is very good, however, the story is not the star of the movie. The characters are so likable and fun. Ellen Ripley is a great protagonist and is also brave and courageous. Lastly, this film is great at giving scares when the audience least expects it. For any fan of horror, sci-fi, or movies in general, this is a must watch.
