Atom User Reviews for Alien 40th Anniversary (1979) presented by TCM
So happy to have now seen this on the big screen..
awesome to have finally seen it on the big screen
I will always like watching this!
Will last the ages.
As amazing as it was the the first time I saw it 40 years ago. Really stands the test of time.
Best sci-fi horror movie of all time.
Theater was understaffed and didn’t open their doors until 15mins before the movie. Movie was excellent, theater was not.
Finally got to see this in a theater and it was exactly as creepy and fun and I hoped.
It was fantastic to see Alien on the big screen. I loved the experience.
Loved watching it again on the big screen!
Still holds up after all these years. I do wish that TCM would remove or shorten the segments prior to the film starting and expand the after film segments. This would help the people who are new to the movie enjoy it without spoilers or building expectations and lets be honest those who enjoy in depth behind the scenes info have no problem staying afterwards.
Springfield IL screening was not properly formatted for the screen and on 2 front facing speakers of the 7.1 worked. I’ve had tickets for 10 months for this and it was the most painful “premium” ticket event I have yet to attend :(
Just as Ripley is the female action hero against whom all others are judged, so the alien itself, brilliantly conceived by HR Giger and, equally brilliantly, concealed by Scott and kept in shadow for much of the film, is one of the most terrifying monsters in cinema history.
