Hands down the best Sci-Fi horror film ever!
H.R. Giger is a genius. Dan O'Bannon writes some damn good stuff. Ridley Scott's best work IMO. I would love to see these three do something together again.
I think (nowadays) people take for granted what is presented to them in these types of movies. "Just give me a bunch of CGI and non-stop action, the story....meh...just give me action!" Mush-head mentality!
When this came out, it was an awakening to what kind of artistic talent and imagination was really out there.
Wow! I guess somebody was listening.
According to IMDb Ridley Scott with H.R. Giger (as artistic consultant), Dan O'Bannon and Donald Shusett are slatted to do 2 Alien prequels with the first being released in 2011-2012.
If you think you know your shit. Take my quiz.
Very, very hard. 40 questions.
Do not, I repeat DO NOT try to run through this quiz to get done as fast as you can. You WILL lose.
Get above 75% and consider yourself among the elite.
Read the questions very carefully and good luck.
One of the greatest science fiction movies ever. Had a very Heavy Metal Magazine feel to it. Most people don't get this movie but if you sit and listen to what is going on you'll like it better. Life in THIS future is a luxury.
Read the book it was based on.
The settings of this movie didn't have a cookie cutter look of the future like most movies of this type. Very dirty, stripped down and in some cases completely retro. A dystopian future for sake of argument.
The only thing that I questioned in this film is the fact that Los Angeles was overrun with Asian people and not Mexicans. *scratches head*
