Pick your 4 favourites in the Alien / Predator movie series!
Alien/Aliens and the first Predator. The rest serves little to no purpose for me.
Can I vote for five instead of four?
Alien/Aliens/Alien 3... everything after that is utterly worthless.
Predator/Predator 2... see above comment, ditto for this franchise.
The Alien franchise has gone right off the rails and is in need of a serious rebooting. This idea/concept of these prequels tying into the storyline of the original ' Alien' movie is not working. Not for me anyway.
I think the original "Predator" is overrated!
Alien and Aliens are top, no question.
Alien 3 is one of my four choices as long as it's the restored extended version from the bluray box set. It's a completely different film from the theatrical cut, and really holds its own against the first two in my opinion.
Rounding out my top 4 is Prometheus, which I think is a terrific, intelligent, atmospheric and interesting film. I'll defend it til the day I die.
I disagree - an Alien reboot would just be lots of CGI xenomorphs running around. Basically the least interesting parts of Covenant. I thought Prometheus was a gripping and successful attempt to go somewhere new with the franchise, but I felt Scott lost his nerve with Covenant - people complained that there weren't enough aliens in Prometheus so he put them in Covenant, and the result was a mish-mash of stuff we'd seen before.
I disagree with your disagreement. ' Prometheus ' had potential but seriously lost its way.
The first 3 on the list got my vote. And I’m a sucker for Prometheus-flawed as it is.
First two Alien and Predator films were what I voted for here. All 4 are extremely solid, well done action/ horror flicks.
It gets way dicier after that. The third and fourth Alien films are a bit on the lousy side, as are the third and fourth Predator movies. I actually hated Prometheus (though I thought Covenant was a big step up from it).
I do find the first Aliens Vs Predator pretty enjoyable (though the second was awful).
It's not that I hated ' Prometheus ' because I didn 't. It just went off the rails. Took itself a bit too seriously too. ' Covenant ' as well in a lesser way.
What 's the key ingredient in an Alien movie ? The Alien. Not some droid fingering some other droid's flute hole or some babe with daddy issues.
As for the Alien/ Predator movies....well, I look at those as entertaining popcorn movies. Nothing more , nothing less.
Aliens vs Predator
See Marvel Comics have bought the rights for Alien & Predator. Could see The Predator in MCU.
All the later day sequels were pointless as far as I'm concerned.
Love them all myself.
Alien vs. Predator.
Alien vs. Predator (luv Sanaa Lathan! )
I don't like the others.
I ca only vote for two, Alien and Predator.
Predator 2: ugh
Alien 3: yawn
Alien Resurrection: lol
Alien Covenant: meh
Alien: A classic
Aliens: A classic
Predator: A classic
Predator 2: Fantastic sequel, very underrated
Alien 3: Different approach, but ultimately a miss
Alien Resurrection: Has some fun moments, but very wonky and self-referential
AVP: I enjoy it, also underrated
AVP 2: Terrible sequel I thought
Predators: Not bad, not great
Prometheus: I really disliked this movie
Alien Covenant: Big step up from Prometheus, enjoyable if not particularly memorable
The Predator: Terrible and disappointing--WTF were they thinking?
I re-watched Predator 2 about a month ago, and I was genuinely surprised how much I enjoyed it.
Resurrection- just because I LOVE Jean-Pierre Junet!!!!!!
The one with Arnold and Jesse “The Body” Ventura. Because if it bleeds, we can kill it
