Movie Log 🍿 - Alien, 1979 - ★★★★

This could be a near perfect movie. 

The production design and creature design are extraordinary on their own right. 

This could arguably be one of the most influential, sci-fi films of all time and it’s easy to see why so many other films pick up some of inspiration from this one.

This also gave us one of the greatest female protagonists of all time in Ripley. 

As with JAWS (1975), this film greatly benefits from the “less is more” approach. By not seeing the creature much, director Ridley Scott is better able to capture suspense and terror from his cast.
