My favourite ‘Alien’ stills, pt. 1

It may sound strange, but what I love most in this film is not the creature itself, but the atmosphere. Don’t get me wrong – the xenomorph’s design, the editing in the scenes it appears and their pacing are iconic, but for me it’s always been the atmoshere, the photography and the production designs that make this movie something sooo remarkable. It’s a believable world, full of details. A deadly one. With each view there are more of them to find. Here’s the first part of my favourite stills.

Alien / goofs

I’ve always considered this film to be a perfect one (and still think so), just these 2 shots bother me each time I see them… The doll of Ash on the left should have been done way more carefully.
