Alien (1979)

Alien Quote: “Final report, the commercial star-ship Nostromo. Third officer reporting. The other members of the crew—Kane, Lambert, Parker, Brett, Ash, and Captain Dallas—are dead. Cargo and ship destroyed. I should reach the frontier within six weeks. With a little luck the network will pick me up. This is Ripley, last survivor of the Nostromo, signing off.” – Ellen Ripley

Many ’80s babies first met xenomorphs in 1986’s “Aliens,” but there just something special about the 1979 Ridley Scott masterpiece that started it all. It’s more suspenseful, more thought-provoking, more groundbreaking. That doesn’t mean we can’t laugh at it. Face it: Mother is just a room of blinky lights, the ovamorphs look like lady parts, the crew of the Nostromo is hilarously reckless, and the chest burster kinda resembles a demented Muppet.

Kicking off Hot Sauce Steve’s 5 weeks of Shat The Movies commissions, “Alien” inspires the Shat Crew to discuss Disneyworld’s Great Movie Ride, Ripley’s choice in underwear, why dogs are better that cats in space, and sexy milk people.”

Plot Summary: “Alien” In deep space, the crew of the commercial starship Nostromo is awakened from their cryo-sleep capsules halfway through their journey home to investigate a distress call from an alien vessel. The terror begins when the crew encounters a nest of eggs inside the alien ship. An organism from inside an egg leaps out and attaches itself to one of the crew, causing him to fall into a coma.
