I thought Life (Blu-ray release 2017-6-20) looks just like yet another Alien (1979) rip-off.  It turns out to be slightly better than that.  At least there are a few ideas that do not frequently show up in other monster movies, and fortunately there is probably less stupidity demonstrated in this movie than others in this genre.  However, there are several aspects that I’m not excited about.  Most importantly, the look of the alien seems quite nice and is not horrific enough.  I’m not convinced of the twist either.  If the alien is super intelligent, how could it not open simple doors?
