Alien is a classic 1979 scifi-horror film directed by Ridley Scott that follows a spaceship crew of seven that land on an unfamiliar planet. When they discover an egg and a parasitic face-hugging alien impregnates a member of the crew, they get it off, and they head back towards Earth. Everything seems to be fine, until the iconic scene where the alien is born, ripping through Kane's chest. Quickly, the Alien grows larger and larger, and begins to kill the members of the crew, one by one.
I love this movie, just about everything about it. Sigourney Weaver, who plays the leading role of Ripley does a fantastic job, as do the rest of the cast. The movie incredibly suspenseful from ten minutes in until the very ebd. There's never really a dull moment and you're always on the edge of your seat. The movie is especially amazing your first viewing, because it loses a lot of it's charm when the suspense is gone and you already know what's going to hapoen. Still, this is a movie I will watch over and over. The thing I love most of all in this movie is the alien itself. I love how terrifying it is, from the way it gives birth to how its mouth opens and then another mouth comes out.
RATING: 98% - One of my all-time favorite movies. It has very few flaws.
