I can't really rate this film high enough. In fact this film has ingrained itself in my heart so much I even undertook the arduous task of sampling the mothership computer sound and turning it into my iPhone text alert sound.
The best of the Alien stable. Saw the Director's cut again recently. It wasn't as sharp as the original, but if you love the original it's hard to resist seeing some new scenes, some additional backstory. Brilliant alien. Fantastic female role.

About this movie
Ellen Ripley, the sole survivor of the alien attack on the mining ship Nostromo, awakens half a century later when she is found by a salvage ship. The welcome given to her by the "Company" officials is far from warm, since they refuse to believe her discovery of alien existence and strip her off her flight officer's license.
Ripley also discovers, much to her horror, that the planet LV-426 where her crew had encountered an alien species for the first time, is now colonized by the company. But when all contact from the planet is lost Ripley is called back into action again as an advisor to a team of tough space marines with lots of firepower.
To get rid of her recurrent nightmares about the alien creature, Ripley prepares for a final battle with the monsters - and this time, there are hundreds of them out there. Written by Soumitra
