Any movie that is a ‘classic’ is crap. Utterly unwatchable crap.
There’s hyperbole there, but there’s truth. Older movies are paced much slower than modern movies.
But Alien, now there’s a film that’s aged worse than most.
Here’s the deal with Alien- it’s supposed to be this great suspense/horror film, right? You know what the big big suspense moment is supposed to be? When the baby alien pops out of the guys chest.
The thing is- anyone in a modern audience knows exactly what’s going to happen, since that scene has been lampooned so many times- from Looney Toons, to most famously, Spaceballs. The scene has no surprise, no uncertainty, only the long wait before a dumb looking puppet finally emerges from the guy’s chest.
Aliens at least had some cool action scenes.
