I am a big fan of Scott’s Alien (1979). I think it is a truly fantastic thriller and one of the major reasons for that is because the fear is primal and its easy to understand.  Sure, you can have sci-fi movies like Christopher Nolan’s Inception (2010) where every detail is thought-through and every moment carefully devised and, as difficult as it may be to understand in real-time, I walked out of the theater completely understanding everything and the more you think about it, the less plot holes exist until eventually, you realize that there’s not a single one. It’s the reason that Inception should have bested that year’s best picture winner, The Kings Speech (2010) in the Best Original Screenplay category.

However, this film is not written with the care and attention to detail that is the hallmark of the work of Christopher Nolan; here we are given a film that is well crafted and visually intriguing, but devoid of a coherent story.
