Thoughts I had while watching Alien
contains spoilers, obv
I am so brave for not reading the wikipedia summary first
This is a Windows 95 spaceship
So far the creepiest thing is that they call their ship “Mother”
Was the cat also in cryosleep?
Okay I would have left at the FIRST SIGN of dead alien
This is making me reflect that my sense of self-preservation is much stronger than my sense of curiosity, which, I don’t know if that’s good or bad
So are aliens like, well known in this universe? Is there commercial or cultural exchange between species?
DO NOT TOUCH THE EGGS
Not to reinforce gender stereotypes, but putting your FACE right over a pulsating alien egg in the middle of a murder spaceship is the most man bullshit
I feel like people should be freaking out more about the face alien
“I think it’s safe to assume that it isn’t a zombie”--- UM. I BEG TO DIFFER.
This movie is a parable about the dangers of not trusting qualified women.
I’m bracing myself for the chest bursting thing. I remember hearing about that.
Okay, it happened! Deep breaths!
Wow, everyone is still way more calm than I would be
Did we remember to dispose of the first alien corpse? I got distracted by the chest bursting
I am concerned about the cat
This scene is gone on way too long, major stress
WHOA. How did it get so big already?? It went from being like a slimy beanie baby to a proper monster in <2 seconds
I wasn’t paying close enough attention so I don’t know why we’re crawling through this tunnel
Being in a tunnel with a flamethrower is never a situation I want to be in
Okay, NOW people are freaking out properly
DO NOT SPLIT THE PARTY
Ripley is really leaning in to her new corporate leadership role
What the F!!!!!!
That may be the grossest prosthetic I’ve ever seen, and I’ve watched a lot of Face Off
This is a parable about late-late-late stage capitalism
Robot Ash is lawful evil
Now I have a lot of questions about androids in this universe.
I’ve watched like 40-50% of this through my fingers, just as an update
I was pretty sure Ripley was gonna be the last woman standing, but oof
Oh man, we still have 15 minutes left, anything could happen
Yay! She saved the cat! A true hero.
Okay, the cat WAS in cryosleep
I would be freaking terrified to get back in the sleep pod after this
HA! I knew it wasn’t over!
Those underpants are like four sizes too small
Ahhhhh remember how Spider Man was like, “Have you ever seen this really old movie Alien” and then they did the thing ---- I get it now
A woman and her cat.
I DID IT. I WATCHED IT.
