I was scrolling through the internet the other day and came across several lists that ranked the Alien franchise from best to worst.It had occurred to that these lists always come from casual fans,and that true fans seldomly get to share there opinion.So guys this is your chance rank the films according to how much you like them.The AVP's and Prometheus included.The Predator franchise is OPTIONAL,NOT REQUIRED.This is neutral territory,all opinions are welcome.

This can change from time to time but right now it is like this:

 

  1. Alien 3 (both versions) 4.5/5
  2. Alien (1979) 4/5
  3. Aliens (1986) 3,5/5
  4. Prometheus (2012) 2/5
  5. Alien Resurrection (1997) 2/5
  6. AVP 1,5/5

 

I am not sure if I shall put AR or Prometheus on 4 or 5. There are times when I feel that AR is better and sometimes Prometheus is better. AVP is a movie that I have watched once and I wasn’t really enjoying it that much, haven’t watched it since.

No problems, Alien 3 is my favorite and so on. I give it a point between 1-5 with 5 being the highest score. Thanks for asking so we could clear that up. Requim is a movie that I haven't watched and I do not plan to do so.

PraetorianMember3047 XPJan-30-2017 2:24 PM

Thank You.Requim is garbage.Simultaneously the worst Alien and Predator film.

1. Alien - the best sci-fi horror ever made imo. Shortly followed by:

2. Aliens - one of the best sequels ever made.

3. Alien Resurrection - nostalgic reasons, beautiful, interesting concept

4. Alien 3 - I do not consider A3 bad at all, it's good, just my least favorite Alien film.

Requim, not sure if intentional but that was hilarious!

Here's mine                                                                                           Aliens:My all time  favorite movie                                                                         Alien:The greatest sci fi film of the 70's                                                                                                                       Prometheus:A little misunderstood at times,but I loved it's dark new vision                                                                            Alien Resurrection:Also nostalgic reasons.I was 7 years old when the movie came out and was lucky enough to see it in theaters.It's still a fun movie to watch.                                                                     Alien 3:It took the assembly cut for me to truly appreciate this one.I enjoy more and more every time i watch it.To be honest 3 and Resurrection are interchangeable depending on my mood.                                                                                   AVP:saw it in theaters at age 14  and thought it was the coolest thing.Fast forward to 27,can't say i feel thay way anymore.                                                                                     AVP:Requiem:Pure crap,plain and simple.

 I should also add that thanks to the AVP movies you can rank the Predator movies as well.

Then I would put Predator after A3 and just before AVP. I didn't care for the other Predator movies.

PraetorianMember3047 XPJan-30-2017 4:27 PM

Wow Spitehouse ours are almost identical!For Predator placement,i would probably place Predator with 3 and Resurrection.Predator 2 and Predators above the AVP Films.

It doesn't make sense to include the predator films. The only reason that we are doing AVP after all is because the Alien is in them. It's illogical to include the Predator films.

Aliens- I've seen this movie more times than any other movie. Like most James Cameron movies, there's something for everyone. The set, direction, pacing, and creature effects are all top notch. A masterpiece.

Alien- Great movie, excellent combination of horror/suspense. Claustrophobic and memorable, leaves a lasting impression.

Alien3- This was my first theatre experience with the franchise,  i do enjoy this movie. The cgi takes away from the horror, but still a solid entry. Great set design.

Alien Resurrection- Also saw this in theatres. It's the "fun" movie of the series. Seeing the newborn for the first time was terrifying, in a good way. Again, awesome set and creature effects.

Prometheus- This is the first, and only Imax3d movie I've seen. Intriguing story, excellent first act, then goes downhill. I like it, but i admittedly spent too much time on the Prometheus message board. We all hyped it up so far, it was sure to let us down. Also wish i wouldn't have seen it in 3d, the glasses are distracting because it hurts my eyes. Still a solid sci-fi movie, cgi is good, Fassbender is excellent.

Ranking predator is not essential.You can if you want to but otherwise its not necessary.I just said you can thanks to the fact that they are predator films just as much as they are Alien.In some cases more predator than alien.

It may not be logical, but it was stated that it is optional.
