The real hero is Alien is Jonesy the cat.
Re-watched Alien last night and when I got home and saw my cat (the bad one), I burst into tears.
“YOU MADE IT!” I said. Somehow over the course of the movie I had become convinced that an alien ate my cat. Now THAT’S good filmmaking.
To be clear, Jiao could not look less like Jonesy if she was trying. I’m just crazy.
