I was pretty young at the first showing of Alien.... but with Post Traumatic stress Syndrome, I didn't sleep for 3 days. S Ridley does a darn good job.

OK ...I'm scared... Give me a run out .10b pitch and don't take me yo the movies.

I absolutely cannot stand it when you hear a spacecraft making noise in the vacuum of space. Kubrick was the only one with the sack to do that.

Same with lightning. Flash and sound arrive together.

I renounce sounds in vacuum. I renounce not adhering to the speed of sound.

Sound demon be gone!

I loved alien, liked aliens, and thought that the rest of the films in the franchise sucked. From the looks of the trailer, this one seems to have potential. I will probably watch it.

Saw it Friday and really liked it. Probably will see it a second time now. I had some problems with the pacing being a little too fast at first for the scene editing and I thought the interactions of the crew amongst themselves felt fake, but after that I gave it a chance and liked it. Fassbinder as the amoral and childlike android David is great, but Noomi Rapace is fantastic as the very likable feminine lead. She is unrecognizable in this film to me, since all I have seen her in before was "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo." All in all, her story arc is very cool.

Noomi was in the original,"The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" trilogy, before the Daniel Craig, Rooney Mara remake.

I would like to see a sequel to this one!

So is this an "Alien" movie? And if yes, is it better than numero 3 and 4 ?

Still think the first Alien movie is one of the scariest things ever. Second one was good too but after that they went a bit out of the window...

yes, it is an "alien" film. It is the prequel.

I'd watch it again.

Prometheus is awesome. The surgical scene is quite hardcore.

Raises a lot of questions...

I saw it last weekend. Definitely worth the time. Visually very good and paced pretty well (a couple slow spots)

Any movie with a synthetic humanoid talking head that helps save the day is probably an Alien movie ;-)

Saw it finally. Oh boy. Certainly not a family movie. Scary for sure at times, but interesting.

Perhaps these are questions only Ridley Scott can answer:

So why did the Engineers boot-up life on Earth, only then to want to come back and wipe out mankind and perhaps all life as is known here on earth with the most hideous zoo of aliens?

Was Earth only meant to be a food farm?

Seems it took them out also. That's karma.

Yes, and who made the Engineers?

I saw Alien with Tom Higgins and Christian Griffith,
and Christian was 14 then and had to step out into the
lobby a couple of times to keep from breaking into pieces
from fear. A really good movie for its time. One strength
is that you never really saw the monster. You got glimpses,
and thus the mind could participate and create the monster.
And the mind is far more creative than any filmmaker. The
film got very weak at the very end, where suddenly you could
see the lizard-like thing, and it seemed so weak at the end,
that creature whose blood was acid that could burn through
hulls and such...
The instant and obvious weakness of the second Alien was
that it immediately showed you the whole monster. No more use
for imagination. A very weak sequel, in my eyes, just a lot
of special ops-type people doing a lot of shooting. No real

I haven't seen Prometheus. Might take my daughters to it, just
for summer fun.... So is it really intended to be a
modern, high-tech remake of Alien?

Patrick, that was my conclusion.

I had no prior knowledge of what this film was, and part way through I thought "this is a remake of Alien!"
