    Good but not my cuppa tea

    What follows are the thoughts of someone who doesn't watch or love horror movies, so please keep that in mind. Alien is a beautiful film: every scene is a work of art. The set, the cinematography, the acting---everything worked seamlessly to create the sense of isolation in space, of ominous danger and slow-building suspense. But as much as I recognized that fact, I didn't feel it while I was watching. I was too busy grinding my teeth in aggravation at all the stupid decisions everyone kept making.

    I understand that's kind of the point of many horror movies---people make stupid decisions that eventually get themselves (almost) killed---and I was impressed that Alien at least offered an explanation for the majority of those stupid decisions. But by then I'd already spent most of the film unable to suspend my disbelief. So while this was enjoyable as a horror and sci-fi classic, it's not a movie I think I'll be raving about to anyone or watching again.
