Name that movie (12)


As part of Stainless Steel Droppings 2016 Sci Fi Experience which runs through 1st December to close of January (details here) I’m going to blog a quote (or two) from a different sci fi movie each day.  See if you can guess the film.  Yesterday was Terminator 2 (and now I want to watch it again!).


Today’s quotes (because I couldn’t choose just one):


Bring back life form. Priority One. All other priorities rescinded.’

The damn company. What about our lives, you son of a bitch?’

I repeat, all other priorities are rescinded.


‘Mother! I’ve turned the cooling unit back on. Mother!’


Come on, cat.

    Alien! Ripley knows that cats are cool and she must take Jones the cat and get off the Nostromo!

    Oh my! Even though I know what’s going to happen, every time I see *that* scene I cringe… And yet a re-watch might be in order… 🙂

    I really need a re-watch of Alien it has been too long – even if it gives me the serious heebie-jeebies 🙂

    I need to stop reading these. I know nothing.

      Haha – you do really, it’s just because I’m choosing silly quotes!

    Best movie ever. My husband and I always talk about how we all take the chest burster scene for granted now. I mean, everyone expects it in every Alien movie now, but can you imagine what it must have been like for movie audiences seeing it for the first time back when the movie came out in 1979? I would have crapped myself 🙂

      The thing I most love about that scene is that I read or heard somewhere that the rest of the actors hadn’t been told what was going to happen – and so the first little explosion that comes from Hurt’s chest was a total surprise! I don’t know if that’s true or not but certainly when you watch it the surprise and horror on their faces seems genuine.
      Lynn 😀
