    ALIEN was released 44 years ago today. One of the definitive science fiction/horror movies, its influence is still seen to this day. The behind-the-scenes story of how the film was made is a fascinating one...

    • 3 is such a disappointment. One of the proposed scripts was written by William Gibson, and it would have been much better.garbage
    • Intergalactic communists fail to weaponize the xenomorphs to combat , and they drift into what's essentially a space station strip mall.garbage
