I appreciate good film criticism. While I usually look for it on pop culture or newspaper sites that I love, sometimes fans come up with the best and most succinct summaries. Check out the following review of Alien that came from the wife of writer Adam Shaftoe.
It’s spot on — an appropriately contemporary breakdown for a 40 year-old movie that was ahead of its time.
Soooooo I have been writing reviews for about ten years. My wife's review of Alien puts everything I have ever written to shame.
"Alien is a movie where nobody listens to the smart woman, and then they all die except for the smart woman and her cat. Four stars."
