I have never seen the original alien movie so was wondering if anyone had a full list of all Alien, Predator, AvP, movies that i should watch in order as i want to finish all of them and not sure how many there are.

Definitely Alien, Aliens, Alien3, Prometheus

(skip the rest as they are a terrible joke played on mankind by a cruel God.)

save Prometheus until you've seen Alien, if possible. but since you're here, im guessing you've seen it :)

honestly man, the AVP's were campy, but kinda fun I guess. Resurrection should be ignored.

I would sugest Alien and Alien DC, then Aliens or Aliens DC amd Alien 3 (there are a nunber of cuts and all a bit different).

Then Alien R which i think is a bigger abomination than the AVP movies, lol well maybe not AVP R ..


Do i see a abbreviated pattern? lol

Lets hope Prometheus 3 is not called Prometheus 3 Redemption then lol

Yeah, i agree with both Dave and Fleshvessel, apart from the "Alien resurrection was worse than AVP and AVP 2." All three are just as bad as one another imo, so just skip those. A complete joke they were!

ALIEN, definately!

ALIENS, good entertainment but is sadly lacking in the Gigeresqe, freudien mindset that made the whole thing so "Alien."

ALIEN 3, a very underrated film which sort of brought the franchise back down to earth, so to speak.

PROMETHEUS, impossible to fully comprehend what exactly is going on which, imo, is part of its charm. Also a must see and i would highly recommend the PROMETHEUS documentary 'The Furious Gods!'

Anyway, they're the main films you should concertrate on and like Dave and Fleshvessel stated, forget all the other crap!



The poster was good though!

Get Alien on blue ray. Watch it in the dark alone. Prepare for an amazing experience. Aliens is good, Alien 3 is a beautiful looking film with flawed script and editting. Alien resurection is a shambles. Cool Alien effects but ulltimately a comedy.

Then watch the original Predator, disregard the sequel, watch Predator's then watch AVP1, beautiful effects, shit script, cool effects. Dont even bother with AVP2 worst film ever made.....

Easiest Answer. Start at the beginning AND WATCH THEM ALL!!! Pretty difficult I know but what the hell. If you don't know them all, then you just need to type Alien Franchise in Google or Alien in IMDB or Wikipedia. Simple don't you think. If your asking peoples opinion on them then that is different.

You must be a Newby, cause that was a pretty stupid question. Do you still live w/ your mom. Does she do your laundry and make you your meals? I ask because you are either lazy or just a little slow. (just having some fun at your expense)

The Predator films or AVP (Alien vs. Predator) are not important and actually AVP (though a cool film) contradicts Prometheus in a way. It basically shows that the Predators breed the Alien species so they can battle them (in hopes of destroying them) so they can be regarded as great Predator. AVP2 in my opinion went too far. 1st Alien film to use small kids and a Maternity Ward full of Pregnant women. That ruined it for me. They should have never gone there. I know it's just a film and not real but it still made me sick.

I would watch all the Alien films but really Alien & Aliens are the 2 key films before Prometheus. Small changes in the others but it's all pretty redundant.

The last poster ^^ is obviously a person who knows everything about everything and as never, or will never, have to ask anybody for their help or opinion. What a wanker!

The poster was good though!

Yep! seems their is a way to reply and a way to not reply...

The OP just saying he never seen Alien, thats not a problem there are people who have seen the AVP movies who may never seen Alien...

The thing with the Alien Franchise is depends what cut of the movies you see, as each cut can lead to a different view.... take Prometheus for instance, for those who only seen the Theatrical Release and never come on sites like this...

If they then watched a different cut that included deleted Scenes, and Alternative so lets say where Weyland was in the Hanger when Fifield attacked and Shaw ran him over.. plus if there was added the scene of the Engineer getting up from the Pilot Chair of the crashed Juggernaught and going running across LV 223 surface and then scene of him reading the Book on the Floor of Vickers Suite...

This would portray a movie very different to the one we got on DVD etc.

And other movies can add mild changes to which cut we see, Alien and Alien 3 especially.

Watching and study those cuts and then comments in latter movies, then makes some things a bit odd...

Prime Example..

Aliens when Gorman asks Ripley what is that, (when the Marines are heading into the Xenoes Nest, and we see the Walls that the Aliens have secreeted resin etc on....

She said she never seen anything like that before......

Where as if you go by the Alien DC and the Coccoon and Eggs Scene where she Torches Dallas, then indeed she would have seen something similar before.

I can't belive theres people who thought AVP was cool, I say douse AVP with gasoline and light that turd on fire along with Alien ressurection and AVPR.

Watch only ALIEN, ALIENS, PROMETHEUS, and ALIEN 3 (optional)

To be honest i think AVP was not bad, it did its job and it tried to tie in the whole Predators Ancient Aliens thingy....

It gave us chance to see Aliens vs Predators, introduce Weyland in a greedy corporate way... Visually it was good enough, it offered us some actions.

Only flaws really was.

1) Interfered with Canon...  mainly that Mankind and Weyland would have known about the Xeno a long time before Alien and Prometheus.

2) It also hinted Weyland and Mankind would have known about the Predators...

Now AVPR futher caused such errors as far as Mankind and Weylands knowledge of the Xeno and Predators....

It also had a poor plot compared and poorly executed....

AVP had a average plot that was executed for its purposes well, but one that would offer problems as far as Canon to Alien universe...

Prometheus had a massive plot that was disapointingly executed but a plot that fits in with Alien universe...

To be honest i would be up for a AVP Re-boot a movie that could be considered as a Alternative Universe and not 100% Cannon... i feel that going the route with a bigger budget and more thought out plot could actually work...

ONLY.... it has to be set in the same Timelines as the Games like the Prometheus Fire and Stone Comics... i.e it has to be set after 2150 for certain.  Between Alien and Aliens  or maybe after  Aliens.

I would futher add that i prefer the Prometheus tie in to Ancient Aliens, only sadly i think this is something that could be dropped in future movies.
