    "There are various cuts of this film, and they are all worth watching. The combination of great storytelling and unforgettable characters can't be beat. This is easily one of the greatest sci-fi films ever made. Even the special effects have held up after all these years. "

    "I'm not a fan of the Star Trek saga, but I recently watched Star Trek I: The Motion Picture, and I kinda enjoyed it! In the cast there are actors I personally like a lot, like William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy, and I think that many will enjoy this movie even without being a fan of the series."

    "Let's face it, Alien has stood the test of time, definitely the best 70's sci-fi movie ever and still shocking even to this day with the level of creative costuming and compelling story. Sigourney Weaver will never be topped, no matter how many remakes they through at us. "
