Alien- no brainer for me and that is not due to current hype. I liked SW in the late 70s and early 80s but grew to find them too wholesome. The Alien franchise never gets old for me and I was always drawn to the darker stuff.

Sorry SW fans- I dropped that series like a hot potato when I got burned with that emo coming of age vibe I got with Episode 1.

As much as I LOVE SW ep 4, 7 and Rogue One...I have to go with my first love and all it's dark majesty; ALIEN.







MemberChestbursterMay-04-2017 4:58 PM

Star Wars.

Godzilla... Truly a God incarnate.


MemberFacehuggerMay-04-2017 5:03 PM

Star Wars is amazing, but I'd pick Alien all damn day.  I'm more interested in the darker stuff as well.  Also IMO, Alien is more relatable, as it's from the perspective of near-future Earthlings.  I'm more into Star Trek than Star Wars anyway.  And there is more space opera fanfare out there than Star Wars, while nothing quite compares to the Alien franchise. 


MemberFacehuggerMay-04-2017 5:03 PM

Alien every time. The moment they introduced Jar Jar bloody Binks was the moment I realised Sith is an anagram of shit.


MemberOvomorphMay-04-2017 5:04 PM

The Alien movies are darker, more realistic and more adult-oriented than the Star Wars movies. Star Wars movies are much more geared towards a younger audience.

Now that Disney bought the rights to Star Wars, I fully expect them to milk the franchise dry and produce very average Star Wars movies.

Love Alien! Obsessed with it! And I can't wait for this new film,



Star Wars will always be one of those solid links to my childhood 


MemberTrilobiteMay-04-2017 5:08 PM

DirtWolf Yeah- Star Trek TOS and TNG are still near and dear- but I left them out since they were originally TV shows.

Batchpool I forgot about Jar Jar- yeah, I almost left the theater but had nowhere to go at the time.



MemberPraetorianMay-04-2017 5:15 PM

Jar-Jar Binks...if ever there was a creature that would put even a facehugger 'off', it's Jar-Jar. My loathing of Jar-Jar Binks is beyond the frame of words.






MemberNeomorphMay-04-2017 5:32 PM

Star Wars is now Mary Sue in Harry Potter Land. Not for me.


MemberTrilobiteMay-04-2017 5:44 PM

joylitt Yes. I liked the first 3 movies as a kid but they seemed like kid stuff as I got older. The Alien series never lost its impact imo.


MemberTrilobiteMay-04-2017 5:48 PM

If I am to mention Lucas, as an older person, I enjoy his lower budget- higher concept THX 1138 way more than his SW work.


MemberFacehuggerMay-04-2017 5:53 PM

I love them both, ALIEN for the dark, gritty nightmare of being on a spacecraft light years from earth being hunted by a cunning apex predator which i believe cut the lights on b and c decks in the post kanes-death hunting party scene.

for Blackwinter-witch and Batchpool, the xeno that birthed from Jar Jar Binks, i guarantee the rest of the hive would put it out of its misery straight away hahaha! 


MemberFacehuggerMay-04-2017 5:58 PM

The six Lucas episodes will always be dear to my heart, and although I loved Rogue One, I don't much care about the Story of Mary Sue vs Darth Millennial, so I'll have to say ALIEN, at least as long as Ridley has his hands on it. He's brought the franchise back to its Sf/horror roots, and I can't wait to see what he does with COVENANT and beyond.

Alien.  Alien.  Alien.

Star Wars has no new storylines. Boring.

Ep IV, The Empire Strikes Back and Rogue One are very good. Other than that : poor.  It says something that the "spin-off" - Rogue One is the best Star Wars Movie since 1981 - for me anyway.

I want to see real bad activities like David, Carter Burke, Ash.

All really good.  I would rather watch AVP than Episodes ! through III.

The new Force Awakens had no new ideas. When you blow up planets --- what else is left.  Star Wars is for Kids.  Its the Budweiser of beers.


Give me a Scotch, straight up!


Today I have been dedicated to post on as many topics as possible until I pass out from drinking too many beers. 


MemberTrilobiteMay-04-2017 6:06 PM

I might have to check out Rogue 1 but I am gun shy from Epi 1 and Jar Jar. AVP crushes Epi 1 free and clear imo.



MemberTrilobiteMay-04-2017 6:06 PM

Damn double post Gremlins.



MemberFacehuggerMay-04-2017 6:14 PM

@dk, rogue one is quite good, i liked it better than Force Awakens its how a star wars film should be.

Im Durp

MemberFacehuggerMay-04-2017 6:20 PM

Star Wars.


Even Episode 2 the worst star wars movie crushes Alien Resurrection, and AVPR.


MemberDeaconMay-04-2017 6:27 PM

LOL has to be Star Wars ;)

Why i am not on the Star Wars Forum you may ask lol

I loved Star Wars, Fantastic near flawless movie, Alien is likewise, I pick Empire Strikes back over Aliens but its close..  Alien 3 vs ROTJ... this is where the Alien Franchise went downwards for me...

Not that Alien 3 was bad, just never kept the same standards.

Phantom Menace vs Prometheus anyone?   Prometheus wins for me ;)

So their is hope with the Franchise, because for me i felt Force Awakens was.... so so.... i did like Rogue One though ;)

But i cant pick a Franchise to be honest, overall i would say Star Wars... just...

The Predator Franchise is a disappointment though The First Movie simply amazing better than Alien for sure... the rest just could not compare..

Any Star Wars movie with Anakin in it sucked.  Whiney kid and Emo Anni lol killed the movie for me.

BD that is sacrilege.  First predator better than Alien?  You are here by banned to a single paragraph post for the next 30 days no more dissertations for you ! ! 


MemberTrilobiteMay-04-2017 6:44 PM

Rick shoots across the bow- but I agree. I hate that emo Anakin- WHAAAA! And his little Jar Jar too! I would love to see David go up against Vadar!


MemberPraetorianMay-04-2017 6:48 PM

airshaft_surprise a Binks, right there, is just the epitome of Strangeness. :D
And yea, the rest would Purge the Defective, I agree :)






MemberPraetorianMay-04-2017 6:55 PM

Please note that I deliberately don't mention SW ep 1 through 3, though I DO admit to watching them because I truly enjoy how Ewan MacGregor handles Obi Wan as a character.

That aside, I really dislike episodes 1-3, and consider the death of Padme at the end of ep 3 to be the WORST writing and death scene in history.

Ep 7, for me, was about The Last Voyage of Han Solo, a time to say 'Farewell' to a beloved character. I also focus more on the Ordinary NON-jedi folks in SW than the me, the normal folks are much more interesting.






MemberChestbursterMay-04-2017 7:10 PM

@BWW - A Jar Jar Morph? Too clumsy to do a decent head bite? heaven save us! XD

Eine Theorie die nicht auf Etwas solidem basiert ist für gewöhnlich nur Geschwätz.

MemberOvomorphMay-04-2017 7:31 PM

Alien. No contest. 


MemberPraetorianMay-04-2017 7:32 PM


Yeah, a Binksomorph WOULD be just....well, yeah, you covered it :D






MemberDeaconMay-04-2017 7:45 PM

@Rick lol

Yeah its close though ;)

I think while they are similar they are also very different beasts, the settings that its...

I felt Aliens did a good job to Alien, but i felt Predator 2 was for the most part a disappointment.

My Ratings rounded up to half a mark are.

Alien 8.5/10

Predator 8.5/10

Aliens 8/10

Predator 2 6/10

Alien 3 6/10

Predators 5/10

Alien Resurrection 5/10

Prometheus 7/10

Yet Prometheus has me coming back to watch it over and over the same applies to Alien

What would a Binksomorph even look like?

Godzilla... Truly a God incarnate.


MemberTrilobiteMay-04-2017 8:35 PM

David needs to dump black goo on all things SW post ROTJ except for Rogue one which is highly recommended possibly.
