Good sound track
Feel good fun for the whole family
A blast from the past
One of my childhood faves. Funny scenes and one liners as well as a cool songs. The liquid metal spaceship effects were ahead of their time.

Great Sfx that stand out even today
The building tension
Some genuine make you jump moments
A cult classic
A great film on so many levels. I love the Alien designs and look of the found spaceship by H.R. Giger. The film is genuinely scary with some iconic scenes. It slowly becomes a game of Alien and mouse aboard a spaceship, providing a claustrophobic setting. If you haven't seen this where have you been?

Rather dull and uneventful
Very slow burner
Thought I'd give this a go as it's just popped up on Netflix. Directed by and starring George Clooney as a lone scientist trying to contact a spaceship returning to Earth after a global disaster. The event on Earth is very vague with no real explanation. The film switches between the spaceship and earth segments for quite long periods. There just isn't enough story or action for the film. A couple of small action scenes and that's it. Which makes the film feel very long. The sets are nice and the space scenes look good. Overall it's a bit slow and predictable.
