How did you manage to see ALIEN in the cinemas at 14? The first 18 rated film I saw was ALIENS in 1986, when I was 16, coz I managed to grow a bit of stubble and I went with my mum and dad
^ Me too. I saw Alien when I was 7, now I'm 28. I can wait six more months.
I saw A L I E N when I was 14, I'm now 46. Finally Ridley revisits his first sc- fi classic, it's been a long wait with a lot of disappointments in the intervening years, but now the anticipation is all part of the pleasure. In fact, if Prometheus isn't the film I'm hoping for, the anticipation will be the all the pleasure. Fingers crossed - I know it will be amazing - I just hope it doesn't spoil A L I E N.
It was the 70's, and ratings were different. I was 8 when Alien
came out, and would have gone with my parents, but my brother and I ate all the cookies or some shit, and they made us stay home as punishment. Had to wait 'til '83 to watch it on video.
