I was really bored this morning and so I watched "Alien: Director's Cut", I remember my mom saying how gruesome and terrible it was when my dad and uncle went to see it in 1977.
I thought it was pretty bad, not as in horrific, but as in bad acting, bad plot, no suspense, and overall it probably would have been rated PG-13 today (if it wasn't for the language).
I actually found myself sitting back laughing at the horrible special effects and the "Alien" just sitting in the corner flailing it's arms instead of popping out and ripping them to shreds, because of the animatronics they had back then instead of CGI.
That scene where Ash (the robot) attacked Ripley and they were bashing him with the fire extinguisher, I was cracking up.
I think people must have been pretty soft back then.
