Followed up ALIEN with this via Comcast OnDemand in HD. Didn’t realize it was the director’s cut, which I had never seen before. Isn’t necessary but neat to see. Again, another all-time favorite film. Still have vivid memories of seeing it in the theater that summer of ‘86 with my girlfriend. Crazy.
