Excerpt: Possible Spoilers I saw this film for the first time a couple of hours ago, so don't judge me. I personally loved Prometheus. Other raged about the film because it wasn't the prequel to Alien that they wanted. I personally had never seen any of the Alien films, so I went in completely blind and didn't view it as a prequel, but as an original science-fiction film by visual master Sir Ridley Scott.

Summary: This movie contains one of the most famous horror scenes of all time. The story was ahead of it's time and has been duplicated by many horror movies since.

Summary: This is an old classical sci-fi movie. The cinematography is superb. The actors did a good job. The story and concept was just phenomenal. This movie should be ranked ahead of all sci-fi movies as it is one of the first few movies in this business. It is a must watch movie.

Scott uses suspense and atmosphere to gain the desired effect and it is an object lesson to gore-obsessed horror directors everywhere; less is definitely more.
Summary: I never realized how good of a movie Aliens was until I watched it the other day for the 2nd time ever.I think the 1st time was when it 1st came out & I have no clue why I didn't like it then.I'm not into Sci Fi flicks at all but Aliens has to be 1 of the best I've seen.It kept me on the edge of my seat from start to finish
