Alien

Ridley Scott Estados Unidos, 1979

Addy K.'s rating of the film Alien, el octavo pasajero

The ALIEN space crew hasn't always been the sharpest tools in the shed. So if you thought the PROMETHEUS or COVENANT crew were idiots— sticking their hands or heads in all the wrong places—well, there was precedent. Beloved and heralded as a classic, ALIEN was never perfect. But seeing the alpha organism (sexy, black, "perfect") following its primordial nature, without delusions of morality, will always be something.
