A poster of a women in a skimpy uniform is shown several times throughout.
Ripely walks around in her underwear near the end.
During a fight scene there are posters of women with exposed breasts and pubic hair visible in the background. These are not the focus of the scene, but readily visible.

Towards the end of the movie, Ripley takes her jumpsuit off. She is seen in a short tank top and very tiny panties. Her nipples are noticeably erect, and poke through her top. Her panties are very low on her hips, revealing a large amount of her pelvic area. The top of her butt and her butt crack are seen a few times when she bends over. Her midriff is also visible. She is in her underwear for at least 10 minutes. While she is undressed for a long time, it’s not sexual.

1、 The fear of being caged

Looking at ancient and modern literature books at home and abroad, you will find that cattle, ghosts and snakes, demons and ghosts, brothers maiming each other, father and son eating each other, and so on. Such chilling horror stories can be seen almost everywhere. These scenes mixed with blood and cruel pictures have been written into stories, compiled into myths and praised by people. In the classic of mountains, seas and overseas western classics, an ancient book of the pre Qin Dynasty, there are female clowns who died after being roasted by ten suns (“the body of a female clown was born and killed in ten suns”), and there are also torture days who were beheaded by the emperor of heaven and waved axes and shields “with milk as the eyes and navel as the mouth”. In ancient Greek mythology, there are many tragedies that violate ethics and morality. Those gods are always jealous, vindictive and cruel. In order to revenge the evil father Uranus, under the guidance of his mother, Cronus “quickly cut off his father’s genitals with a serrated sickle, threw it behind him and let it fall behind him”. As the father of Zeus, Cronus was afraid that his offspring would become the king of the gods, so he swallowed them as soon as they were born. Zeus, who later replaced him, ate his partner Metis raw for the same reason. Boccaccio compiled The Decameron based on real events, medieval legends and folk stories, in which Sally beta buried her lover’s head under the rosette and wept day and night; Tank Reddy killed his daughter’s lover and put his heart in a gold cup; Rosilione cooked his wife’s lover’s heart and tricked her into eating it.

The bedtime stories told by adults in front of children, such as how the big gray wolf ate little Red Riding Hood’s grandmother’s bones, how the prince jumped down from the tower for the sake of the lettuce girl and blinded her eyes, and how the sleeping beauty pricked her finger by a huge spindle and never woke up. Adults successfully scare the disobedient children with these stories, and let the children’s young hearts taste the stimulation of fear for the first time. Since then, fear is like a beast locked in a cage. In childhood, he stood outside and stretched out his little hand to get closer to it. With the growth of age and experience, fear is constantly changing. But there are a few things that are a huge shadow in people’s hearts at any time. They will tremble as soon as they get closer. That is, great power, the unknown and death.

Hitchcock’s way of setting suspense is to place the bomb on the train and place an order for death without telling you when the God of death will come to collect the body. This suspense gives full play to the energy of fear, the powerful power of bombs, the terror of death and the anxiety about the unknown explosion, all of which make people doomed under the clutches of fear. He never used blood to exaggerate violence, because it was a clumsy technique. He only used visual stimulation to cause physical nausea and short-term fear in movie watching life, not real psychological fear. Hitchcock has never given a clear explanation to the seagulls that frantically attack humans in the birds (1963), but has succeeded in giving those animals that look weak and harmless on weekdays an unknown and powerful destructive power, so that people will tremble in their hearts when they see the birds flying in the sky for a long time.

After Spielberg’s “great white shark” kept tourists away from the beach in the mid-1970s, Ridley Scott used “alien” to let this alien creature dominate the nightmares of movie watchers during almost the whole 1980s. It seems to be the first time that this completely fictional creature has jumped to the top of the terrorist list. In the following 18 years, this image was moved to the big screen three times. With the changes of directors, times and environment, the alien image has also undergone great changes.

2、 Heteromorphic series

1. “Alien”, the product of the cold war

On March 5, 1946, Churchill’s “iron curtain speech” opened the cold war between the United States and the Soviet Union for nearly half a century. Although the two sides did not start a war, the continuous economic blockade, arms race and support for the third world to fight a hot war have become the mode of warfare between the two countries for decades. The tense situation put great mental pressure on the residents of the two countries, and the unpredictable political situation cast a great shadow on their lives. Whether the “nuclear war” will come tomorrow has become people’s biggest nightmare. For mankind, nuclear weapons are a powerful energy that is extremely destructive and makes people have no defense ability. “Total nuclear war” is a terrible scene that no one can imagine.

The time when “alien” was born was just at the end of the cold war. People have endured the great survival pressure brought by the cold war for decades. They are tired from the pressure in daily life and spiritual level, and can’t find any outlet. “Alien” was born with a production cost of 11 million, but it took nearly $183 million from the audience’s pocket. Such a huge income seems to announce that people’s long suppressed emotions have finally found a way to vent.

In the first six minutes of the film, there was no character or line. From the beginning of the film, the director focused on rendering an atmosphere of extreme loneliness, helplessness and depression. Everything is like the famous film slogan: “in space, no one can hear your scream”. The camera moves slowly in the vast space, and the northuromo spacecraft loaded with 20 million tons of ore sails alone on its way back to earth. The picture takes the audience coldly inspecting the narrow and empty cabin. The inner wall of the metal structure of the spacecraft reveals cold light under the dim light. Occasionally, the wind blows the paper “banging”, or suddenly there are several “didi” sounds when the computer starts up and runs. The small movement is amplified into a palpitation in the dead environment. The seven crew members woke up in such an environment. The feeling of helplessness, loneliness and depression created by the film just caters to the image of the cold war in people’s hearts. This emotion has been permeated throughout the film, and like a growing stone on the chest of each viewer.

The crew of the spacecraft were awakened in advance during the journey, received the new command from the “mother” of the main control computer, changed the route and flew to an asteroid with unknown ecosystem. Every step towards this “temporary” operation is full of unknowns, and the crew spend most of their time in a dark, huge body like cave. No one knows what creatures they will see and what challenges they will face in the next second. When 130 and a half person tall “alien” eggs appeared in the field of vision, this new creature did not show its aggressiveness, but brought a doubt to the crew and the audience. As its larvae broke their shells and adsorbed on a crew member’s face, doubts began to be mixed with anxiety and fear. The “alien” larvae did not immediately kill people, but wrapped their faces tightly. With people’s actions, they showed their power, like a slowly waking beast, showing their powerful and unlimited power, and swallowing the fragile nerves of other crew members. Under this great pressure, every crew member began to show the weakness of human nature, selfishness, cowardice and suspicion. When they flew away from the non star ball and the “alien” larvae separated from Kane’s face, the tension seemed to relax a little, but everyone could feel that there was an unknown and more terrible thing lurking in the dark and waiting for the opportunity to break out of the cocoon. The setting of this plot perfectly deduces Hitchcock’s suspense technique.

Next is the picture of the well-known “alien” breaking out of the bore. It is not as tall and ferocious as a monster in general form, but more like a newborn baby, but its rebirth began with the tragic death of human beings. This cruel parasitism is only the tip of the iceberg of its great threat. The strong acidity of its blood makes it indestructible. This physiological structure of dying together with the enemy can’t help but remind people of the mutual containment of nuclear weapons in the cold war. It seems that once it attacks the enemy, it will bring devastating consequences to itself, but it will be destroyed by endless fear.

In the first “alien”, this alien creature actually has a pure and perfect quality under its terrible appearance. The “saliva” of the alien set by Ridley Scott is not the disgusting mucus often seen in later horror films, but pure water. From the pure water and irresistible characteristics flowing out of their bodies, we can see that they attack people not out of evil ideas, but simply want to survive. In this, the ugliest and most terrible image is actually Aish, the crew member representing the military in the film. The military set a trap from the beginning and used several crew members as bait. The real purpose of this voyage is actually to find powerful biological and chemical weapons on unknown planets. Ash played a role in fuelling the flames. Several critical moments were when he decided that the “alien” would be brought to the spacecraft for observation and protection. His expressionless attempt to kill Ripley was ruthlessly exposed. At this moment, the director tried to tell the audience that human greed and desire are the most terrible monsters. Perhaps with wisdom and courage, we can defeat that alien creature, but we can’t guard against human greed.

The story trend and character setting of the film can show the director’s dissatisfaction with the government represented by the military, which has also become a great spokesman for the audience to express their anger and protest against the senseless cold war launched by the government in reality. The appearance of “alien” in the film is not much, which also continues the characteristics of “great white shark”. The real fear comes from the heart, from the helplessness in loneliness, from the weakness in the face of unknown powerful forces, and from the cold teeth and despair in the face of cannibalism of the same kind.

2. “Alien” sequel, a Hollywood classic created by James Cameron

James Cameron was an ordinary truck driver before he became a director, and his physics major in college had little to do with the film and television industry. Like Ridley Scott, he is a loyal fan of George Lucas’s “Star Wars” series. However, they are not only excited and excited after watching the film like ordinary audiences, but also set a higher ambition – to be a film director and make such a magnificent and shocking film. What is rare is that the two “Star Wars” fans became excellent directors and were famous for directing commercial blockbusters. However, the two directors have their own interpretation methods for blockbusters, which can be seen from the two “aliens” with different styles. In his later masterpieces such as “Blade Runner”, “Black Hawk landing” and “Gladiator”, Ridley Scott once again implemented his thinking on human nature, integrated humanistic care into the film, and triggered a series of reflections. Cameron established his position as the box office champion and created an insurmountable peak with his “terminator” series, “real lies” and the money printing machine like “Titanic”.

Compared with the depressing feeling full of political implication in the first film, the sequel of “alien” has more ups and downs and momentum in the plot. After James Cameron successfully created the classic image of “terminator” in 1984, his confidence increased. Under the pressure of the unprecedented success of “alien” 1 in 1986, James Cameron demonstrated his ability to control action blockbusters easily (which also laid a solid foundation for the film company to spend $200 million on the production of a sunken ship in 1997). Cameron did not mechanically repeat the shooting techniques and plot settings of the first film, but described the blueprint of Cameron style blockbusters. This time, the director shifted the spearhead from the government to mercenary companies, more specifically those scum who devoid of human nature for money.

After defeating that terrible creature last time, the nosturomo drifted in space for 57 years and finally docked for rescue. However, Ripley could not get rid of the nightmare brought by “alien”, and the company also had an ambiguous attitude towards the death of its crew, and refused to admit the existence of such powerful creatures. In order to eliminate the demons and prevent the “alien” from invading humans, Ripley and a team of trained Marines flew to the “alien” planet inhabited by humans.

The addition of Marines undoubtedly enhances the visibility of the action scene of the film. Who will die first and how to resist the powerful “alien” has become one of the highlights. In the colonial planet that is already an empty city, the appearance of the surviving little girl newt brings a touch of tender feelings to the cruel and bloody film, and also disperses the combat effectiveness of the team members. As a villain in the first department, the robot reappears as a bishop in this department. Ripley not only had a prejudice against him, but the audience also doubted his “loyalty” from beginning to end. The director skillfully hid the Bishop’s real position and often made some dialogues to confuse the public until the last moment. The audience whose heart is finally settled will not feel relaxed, but will be shocked – even robots know to protect humans, but humans themselves lose their conscience for money. This view has been continued in Cameron’s Terminator 2. The terminator played by Schwarzenegger has always adhered to the responsibility of protecting mankind.

Although Ripley and his party have more advanced weapons and equipment, they are still often helpless in the face of “aliens”. They have an instrument that can detect “aliens” this time, but this detector has not played much role. We can hear the sound of “beep, beep” from weak to strong. We know that the proximity of “aliens” can not be seen and can not escape. We can only watch our companions disappear from the screen into a snowflake. One of the “alien” scenes gathered from all directions of the ventilation pipe has become a classic of horror films. The team members can only stare at the instruments in their hands and watch the little red dots gather more and more. The “beep” sound that keeps aggravating is like the approaching footsteps of the God of death, ringing through the dreams of countless people waking up in the middle of the night. Ripley and the little girl were locked into the secret room with “aliens” by the director. The fight scene was extremely soul stirring and was directly used by horror films such as “biochemical crisis” many times. It is not surprising that the scene in which the mother of “alien” chases Ripley in the elevator also appears deja vu again in “Godzilla”.

It can be said that the advantages of commercial blockbusters have been brought into full play by Cameron. He is familiar with how to control the rhythm and how to use the plot of layers to make the audience breathless. The personal heroism that Hollywood has always respected is also perfectly qualified by Ripley. From then on, there was another iron lady on the screen.

3. The epitome of David finch’s melancholy world – “alien” 3

If the first “alien” is an unrepeatable myth created by the times and environment, its sequel is a textbook Hollywood classic image that will be recorded in history forever. This poses a difficult problem for the director of the third film: what should I do next?
