Easily one of the best of all time Posted by: from: on This movie is easily one of the best Sci-Fi films of all time. Scott did such a great job in capturing the gloom-n-doom that it is no wonder why this is one of the top horror/Sci-Fi titles that has ever been made.

A good remaster of a classic Posted by: from: on This is a pretty good blu-ray remaster. Some remasters really aren't very good (or they just show the movies age, and make the special effects in the movie lose their illusion), but this movie was remastered fairly well. The enhanced fidelity doesn't poke any holes in the film, and it really highlights how well they designed their sets and special effects. This edition includes both the original cut of the film, and the slightly more controversial director's cut—which is a nice bonus, but the original cut is definitely better.

In Blu Ray, you can still scream in space!!! Posted by: from: on Alien is a horror classic that influenced the way we look at science fiction films and it is one to own and add to your movie collection. On Blu-Ray, the movie holds up because in this transfer, the image quality is more immersive from the vast and grimy interior views of the Nostromo ship to the gothic, shadowing and foreboding shots of the crashed Space Jockey ship with twisted art design by H.R. Giger. The sound is impactful to convey suspense and surprising scares with atmospheric touches whether on the Nostromo Ship or on the dark planet. The UV copy still works to download so definitely go buy it!!!

Love this one! Posted by: from: miami, fl on I love a good space movie, especially when it's atmospheric. This one dripped with it, a feeling of isolation and darkness that added so much to the feel of the entire flick. Great acting and action, too.

Great Looking Blu-Ray Posted by: from: on I was nice to see Alien give an updated transfer, and I can honestly say that it looks better than ever, from a technical stand-point this is a must-buy, but it's worth notating that it's short when it comes to special-features, still worth buying.

Exceptional Sci fi thriller Posted by: from: St. Paul, MN on This is the wonderful sci-fi thriller we all know and love. Pacing may be a little on the slower side for younger viewers but overall you cannot dispute the quality of the film. Great special features such as digital download, movie commentary, original theatrical release and remastered 2003 release, and deleted scenes. I loved this movie as a kid and it did not disappoint as an adult.
