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.

ok my reviewed list with score out 5, 5 being highest

alien 5/5 just awesome, timeless classic

predator 4.8 again a classic and very well done in such a difficult location

aliens 4.7 think Cameron made a good call going more action so to not be seen to be doing just the same as ridley. though the xenos were very well designed, the sheer fact of seeing so many and that, with the right equipment, they do get theyr a$$ handed to them for a bit, aliens took some of the horror factor away from the xeno

Prometheus 4.65 lol I was disappointed when ridley changed his mind as I was really looking forward to an alien prequel but I think he made the right choice in the long run. watched as a stand alone movie and I thought it was excellent. holes yes but  holes yet to be answered?

alien3 4/5

AR 3

AVP 2

AVPR -19861238429874520365065263906307 just cant say how bad this film was

its just total gash and a from to both franchises. the concept of avp is good but the way they were done was awful. requiem was just awful, possibly my 2nd most hated movie of all time, closely following shark exorcism I think its called

Shark Exorcism?

NeomorphMember1823 XPJan-31-2017 1:45 AM

I think that's what its called though maybe wrong, its like a syfy made low budget movie where a spirit possesses a great white. u don't actually see the shark kill anyone at all. even in one scene, some voodoo practicing chick is rolling around on the ground, worst acting ever, and a man is on a bridge. the shark obv jumps and gets him but it doesn't show u the shark approach, jump or any blood in the water, just some idiot girl rolling around

That does sound pretty ridiculous and syfy worthy.

FacehuggerMember500 XPJan-31-2017 4:32 AM

My opinion of Alien: covenant might be a 5/5 based on evidence and the trailer I watched :)

1) Alien

2) Aliens (but its close)

3) Prometheus (could have had potential to be Number 1)

4) Alien 3 regardless of cut

5) Alien Resurrection.

AVP not considered, if so then AVP maybe tie with Alien Resurrection and AVPR no Comment lol... only Alien movie i never seen all the way... kept shutting off and i watched it once... and dont remember more than 50% and not been bothered to see it again lol

If had throw whole lot in... then its...

Alien, Predator, Aliens, Prometheus, Alien 3, Predator 2, Alien Resurrection, AVP and well i guess AVPR but i pretend that never happened lol

A L I E N- My favourite film of all time, and alongside BladeRunner and 2001, the 3 greatest Sci-fi movies ever made!

PROMETHEUS- There is no denying Ridley Scotts artistic brilliance, PROMETHEUS showcases some of his best work. So close to perfection. Sadly, some bad editing choices were made. Script shortcomings resulted in vagueness and characters coming across as idiotic rather than the irrational, egotistical, and unbalanced people they were. Needed at least a 3 hour running time. I blame the meddling FOX!

A L I E N 3- There's no denying the production was a horrific mess and I absolutely hate what ADI did with Gigers concept. Yet somehow David Fincher still managed to pull a rabbit out of the hat. My appreciation of it has grown with the passage of time.

A L I E N S- From the first time I saw it I was mad as hell because of the cheesy characterisation and how it diminished the horror and mystery of the Alien. It's moved further down my ranking over the years...and I'm still mad as hell! :D

A L I E N Resurrection- Did they have to? Resurrect her I mean. ADI managed to create the worst looking Alien Universe creature ever to grace a movie screen. Well, I guess it does have some comedic value. 

AvP- Do I have to include this? LOL Very bad mashup of two great Franchises.

AvPR- Now you really gotta be kidding me, just how bad can a mashup get?!

Interesting ranking Lone, but do you really think the Newborn is the worst looking Alien creature ever? Worse than the Predalien? Even worse than all of those direct to VHS b-film cliché monsters spanning from the 70s to the early 90s that you've seen? Is it THAT bad iyo?

C'mon now :) 

(Prepare for me to get butthurt lol) 

Lone

PraetorianMember2674 XPJan-31-2017 6:54 AM

Hahaha Now edited my post to say the worst looking Alien Universe creature ever.

Yeash, it's so ugly and clumsy. Put youself in the MORBs creators {H.R Giger} shoes, now how would you feel seeing that monstrosity {in the worst sense of the word} up on the screen?

1-Alien

2-Prometheus

3-Alien 3

4-Aliens

5-Alien Rez

 

Aliens is just too slick and dated. It really shows its age and there's just something about it that I don't like across its whole aesthetic. It's too "kid oriented". I liked it as a kid...heck I LOVED it, but again, it gets less and less "good" to me every time I watch it.

The original "Alien", however, is like a fine wine: it just gets better and better, and will never be dated. It holds up just fine and has "that" feel that gets you from the inside out.

 

And that ridiculous, God Awful Alien Baby in Alien Rez is single handedly the worst creature in the history of the Alien (& Pred, for that matter) Universe. Dreadful. A 2 year old could've designed that piece of ****e.

The only thing the Newborn got right was knocking Queenies head off!

Hey, just realised I..actually..liked..that no, wait, what, that can't be right! XD

@Lone Sounds like you and I have very similar tastes! I promise I didn't even read your post until after I made mine, lol!

Newborn stands to me as the most frightning alien to date after deacon.

Still neomorph in adult form has potential to surpass it

Ok Lone from that (Giger's) perspective I can see that possibility, then again a lot of artists and designers can tend to look down on other people's works anyway.

For me the Newborn, although more or less a ripoff, is at least an ambitious attempt at a bit of redesigning something new and different after a series of xenomorphs seen previously.

Those eyes....wouldn't they scare you if the Newborn stood right beside your bed and woke you up in middle of the night? 

*raises buttshield* 

Lone

PraetorianMember2674 XPJan-31-2017 7:24 AM

Ok I'll grant you it was an attempt at something new.

Actually, dear old H.R was always very polite and gracious about other artists interpretations. 

Naaw, not much scares me, that thing made me laugh!

I would literally **** my bed and scream like a duck on ecstacy having an orgasm if the Newborn woke me up.
