Usually, the second film in a sequel is not good. Not the case here. Building on the story in Alien, further developing the main character and adding some intriguing new people, and skewing much more in favor of action rather than horror, this movie packs a punch and is well worth watching.

A classic. Should be on everyone's "much watch" list if only for the fact that it was the first modern space horror and was so important to so many actors and genres. One can jump down the rabbit hole on this one and read about how the whole thing was designed to be a mind-mess, or you can just watch (and re-watch) some of the best atmosphere-building and jump scares to this day.

A great "What the heck did I just watch?" movie. Throw some popcorn at the screen and make "Martian" noises at this beautiful mess that was an attempt to make a mainscreen B-rated movie. Cue the Tom Jones songs, baby.

Do I like these characters? No. Do I care much for the story? Also, no. The book, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, was much better. Do I think anyone who likes movies should at least try it? Yes. The special effects and the setting are singular. The acting is very well done. And at the very least, this is one of those movies that makes a viewer think in ways they didn't think they would think before.

An under-rated college horror gem with a creepy premise and decent special effects. If you can get past the inane name and some limited writing skills, it's a worth-it watch.

Snappy dialogue, poker, and it's based on real events.

Sweet, fun romcom drama with a youngish Julia Roberts, a fun soundscape, a decent fight scene, and a little dancing.
