Next to Blade
Runner, Alien (1979) is Ridley Scott's best
movie. So it's good news that he's returning to the sci-fi genre with an Alien prequel. In the
meantime, you can catch his excruciatingly suspenseful tale of a crew on a
shabby interstellar cargo ship picked off one by one by the title intruder.
Sigourney Weaver made a name for herself in Scott's film, and she returns in
James Cameron's pluralized sequel Aliens (1986), forever
immortalizing the line "Get away from her, you bitch!" Both are screening at
the Coolidge Corner Theatre, 290
Harvard St, Brookline
