    This was my third time watching Alien and I think this watch was the first one where I experienced the movie the way Ridley Scott intended for the viewer to experience it. It’s just taken a long time to connect with me but every time I’ve watched it I’ve found something else new to appreciate about it. 

    The scene in the vent system especially stood out to me in regards to the build up of tension and the sound design.…

    No secret that I’m a massive fan of b-movie cinema. I don’t think there’s a kind of film that more closely exhibits the heart of filmmaking more than a movie someone made in their backyard for no money.

    Miles ahead of its predecessor in terms of quality and enjoyment. Sure it’s a tad formulaic, a few plot contrivances, and Johnson’s retarded gun fight scenes, but it seldom retracted from my enjoyment of the movie. 

    I might’ve been too hard on the first one initially as I did enjoy the characters but despised the side plots that amounted to nothing in the grand scheme and the random stock footage of cows sprinkled throughout.
