Survivors of an alien attack crash next to a prison and learn that the alien came with them.

This was my first movie with a shaved-headed woman. I guess I was all "oh no she di'int, now wesa gettin serioooos".

In my mind, the franchise was significantly weakened by this movie. It just didn't "feel right". Perhaps the previous two were so good that they became too tough to follow, but after yet another re-watch this movie really just doesn't seem all that good.

Waking from long hibernation, a woman claims to be the survivor of an alien attack from a planetoid which has since become a terraforming colony.

A direct descendent of Alien - (1979 movie), this movie not only builds on but improves on the movie, turning this into a blockbuster franchise.

A crew of civilians investigates a distress beacon, but it turn out to be a warning that they were too late to heed.

Alien is another "first to get there" movie which has set the bar for its sub-genre.

It has a dirty old-but-futuristic look to it that really stretches its technological and budgetary limitations. As it turns out, this has given the movie incredible longevity. For a movie as old as this, it easily stands the test of time.

Some superheroes are assembled, wielding the power of deus ex machnica, and and defeat bad guys that make no sense.

A bad movie, only made passable by Gal Gadot being so ridiculously good looking I lack the words to word about her looks.

Something about a powerful thing that was taken, and a conspiracy. I guess.

Terrible. Simply terrible. A bad setup to the universe, a whole lot of shit pulled out of thin air.. generally bad writing and a bad mood. Bad pacing. Everything about it is terrible. Do not watch.

Aliens arrive, but nobody knows the first thing about talking to them.

This is another movie whose description would spoil it. With a rather mellow and thoughtful tone throughout, it pulls the viewer in. I think it will hold up well over time, too.

A documentary following soldiers fighting the aliens left over from an invasion.

I rather liked this! People talk about this being low budget, but until it's pointed out I doubt someone would really notice.
