    Classic Science Fiction

    The Alien trilogy - I exclude the fourth in the series - is classic science fiction in all respects. It satisfies nearly all the criteria that make a movie a classic: originality, realism and beleivability within context, developed personality of characters, scientific accuracy, entertainment, cinematography, consistent stylisation and fully structured storyline to name but a few.

    The greatest horror saga of all time

    Alien was the movie that brought us into a new generation of sci-fi horror. Alien and its sequals took us to new limits of our imagination. They introduced us to a whole new genre of movie making and now they're together in one place for future generations to enjoy. The Alien Legacy stretches beyond the ranking of one of the greatest movie sagas of all time in the sci-fi category; it is one of the greatest movie sagas of all time, in every category.
