Alien and Aliens are my ultimate, most-favorite movies of all time. I would be absolutely embarassed to admit how many times I have watched this movie or any of the alien franchise movies. I am obsessed with all things "Alien" and will eternally be thankful and grateful to have these amazing movies to watch throughout my lifetime. This movie is about a space crew that go to another planet to help out a distressed colony of people that have gone missing (because terrifying aliens with acid for blood and another head for a tongue, have totally cocooned them all in horrific ways; to lay eggs in their bodies so thus to create more of their amazing alien beings). This movie is Science Fiction at its very finest.

Great sci fi movie. I will watch every movie this franchise puts out forever. Do I think this is the best film in the series? No. Probably Aliens. But definitely watch this and then binge the whole series. If you are a sci fi fan or film fan you will not be disappointed.

Beautiful cinematography and incredible visual effects can't save a painfully generic and rather mediocre film. I've watched Alien twice, both times causing me to scratch my head in regards to why it is considered to be a classic.

Yes, the poster is cool, the tag-line is cool, the production design is cool, and Sigourney Weaver is really cool. But the movie just isn't. It's an unoriginal slasher film that takes place on a spaceship.

Unlike Mad Max: Fury Road – which also has a minimalist story – the action in Alien doesn't lead anywhere, it just sort of happens periodically. Overall, it feels like a walk through an overproduced haunted house at a county fair. The sets may be realistic but the scares often fall flat.

Scary as balls. I can't watch this movie at all without hiding under the covers, It gave me nightmares when it first came out and I am still having them. Don't let your kids watch this!

We love sci-fi movies! You have to remember when this was filmed when watching it because the graphics aren't like they are now. But we've watched all of the Alien films again & again.

I first saw this movie when I was wayyyy too young to be watching it and I just loved it even though it used to scare the crap out of me. Now I just love watching it as it is a classic.

Love this scary movie and in my opinion this first Alien movie series is the best. It is very scary and so well made. But, I do also love Aliens 2. Not for kids.

I'm not a big fan of sci-fi movies, but I could watch this movie over and over. It's not corny in the least. Great acting, effects and storyline.

Alien is a horror classic. Every horror movie fan has seen all the alien movies and who doesn't love a bad ass chick who can stand on her own
