    "Alien" debuts at #108 on the Hot 100 (or #8 on the Bubbling Under chart) due to streaming points and a few sales which is probably a better result than what it would've done with a proper single release without this "controversy".

    I rewatched this today for the first time in years and BY FAR the most uncomfortable scene for me was when Ash tried to shove a porn magazine down Sigourney Weaver's throat to kill her. I was completely agog. :D

    Fucking brilliant on the whole though, and has aged very well imo.

    It's fantastic, I'm overdue a rewatch to be honest. This topic is about the Britney Spears song Alien though :tongueout:

    It's surprising we don't have a topic for the Alien films, really!

    I like the bit with all the mutant / malformed Ripleys though

    Oh and the bit where she kills the baby and feels sad :(

    Apparently that scene was the reason Sigourney signed on to do the film.

    Oh and I’m sure the $11m paycheck helped.

    MY BAD. :disco:

    And yes to Alien 3 above Aliens which is one of the most overrated movies of all time and sums up everything I hate about James Cameron to the power of ten.

    Alien 3 got some mixed (or mostly negative) reviews at the time if I recall correctly but the shaved head Ripley is iconic and of course there's the lovely scene we all know and love with the iconic picture but to me the most iconic moment is the very final scene (and no I do not prefer the alternate ending when it rips out of her chest..)
