How good is Alien? So good that, except for the computer interfaces on the Nostromo, it looks like it could have been shot yesterday (it looks better than that, because no cruddy CGI). So good that countless films and TV series are still ripping it off to this day. So good that everything—everything—still plays. So good that you shouldn’t miss a chance to see it on the big screen.

1979 Ridley Scott 2.35:1 Color DCP 117 min.
