Now, I know what you’re thinking. Why the heck am I writing about a classic that you’ve seen quite a few times? Well, I’ve got a couple of reasons.
Number One, when that Prometheus trailer came out it really got me jonesing to watch the origin content of what this movie is going to be like. Some people are saying this will be a direct prequel to Alien, some say it’s taking place in the same universe, and some say it has nothing to do with Alien at all. What I do know is that the same spacecrafts are in both films and the deliberate title sequence copy in the Prometheus trailer tells me they are connected.
Number Two, I bought this bad-boy on blu-ray for 13 buckaroos. It is incredible. To see how a classic, like this one, holds to the test of time is awesome. The clarity is unbelievable and the sound effects are top notch. My only gripe is the dialogue sounded a little pitchy, but whatevs.
I hate to sound like an old man, but they just don’t make sci-fi horror movies like this anymore. I really can’t think of a movie from the last five years that I know will be an instant classic…(Sunshine, maybe? No.) It was a great movie that I will probably watch a couple of more times before Prometheus comes out this summer.
Beeteedubs, I’ve never really thought of Sigourney Weaver as sexy at all, but those last scenes before she has that final sequence with the Alien… boy oh boy, she was mighty sexy in those tiny underwears.
