ALIEN: 40th Anniversary

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-6av8p-a23c25

On May 25th, 1979 we witnessed the first encounter of an Xenomorph. With female lead role, Ellen Ripley, played by the lovely Sigourney Weaver. After losing her entire crew to this unidentified species, this was the start to the franchise we grew to love and hate as time went on. Alien won 1 Oscar Award, with another 16 wins with 20 nominationsRidley Scott who directed the film, wanted the creatures to become scary. In order to do so, he fly over seas and recruited the beloved H.R. Giger, who at the time was showing off his masterpieces of art.

“After a space merchant vessel perceives an unknown transmission as a distress call, its landing on the source moon finds one of the crew attacked by a mysterious lifeform, and they soon realize that its life cycle has merely begun.”

The script was written by Dan O’BannonRonald Shusett (story wise), and Dan O’Bannon (screenplay). Another name worth mentioning who was uncredited, Eddie Powell. The man who was the Alien.

Within this 40th Anniversary, we dive into the film of the uncut and cut version. Which way was better, did it work to keep the directors cut? Did it show to much of the creature, or was it enough to scare us these 40 years later. Doug and I put our thoughts and opinions inside LV-426. This is our last recording upon boarding the ship.

  1. Alien is certainly in my top 10 greatest horror films of all time. It is near perfect. I remember the first time I saw it, I think I was about 9 or 10, and was just awe struck.

    Have you watched the 4K version. I was wondering what the quality is like? Some 4K titles are a bit too noisy for my liking, but if it’s a pristine image, I may just buy this one on 4K.
