I think so! I watched Alien last night and I can't describe how much I truly love this film. I would not change a thing in this movie and I have seen it about 15 times since my first viewing about 20 years ago. This is Ridley Scott at his best and it shows! The acting comes off as some of the most natural I've ever seen in a science fiction movie. I also love the longer length of some of the scenes in which nothing is said but still captures our attention and interest while setting the mood for the film. Speaking of the mood, this movie is what HT is all about. Watching this movie in total darkness on a large screen in digital sound really adds to the atmosphere of the film. The cinematography is also really exceptional and just beautiful to behold for such a film. If only more movies today were made like this. One more thing, if you haven't seen it in a while then pop it in the DVD player and give it another spin, you won't regret it. It's the best film of the series IMHO.
