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.

Dragon King Ultrazero80

Maybe that's Something Man Was Not Meant To Know :D

Frankly, my brain just stalls out when I try envisioning the Binksomorph. :), I thus consign the Binksomorph to the purview of the Noblest of Cephalopods...

Alien, without a doubt. Not even a contest.


Star Wars, as a space opera, is a lot of fun, but I don't go to the movies for sunshine, lollipops and rainbows. If I'm paying upwards of $10 for a box of Junior Mints, I'd better see blood, guts, spit and ass going 4 different directions and plenty of it! ;-)

Oh I know, I was just mentioning Star Trek to show that it wouldn't be too hard for me to give up the Star Wars franchise because it's not my favorite to begin with :)

DirtWolf Star Trek is part of my genetics really. I understand your meaning. I loved SW as a kid in the 70s and early 80s and don't GAF about it now. I loved ST as a kid and still watch it to this day. Big difference imo.

I love Star Trek but I hate it when they over use the Klingons or time travel. I heard in the new movie they want to make Kirk meet up with his father. So trite.


TrilobiteMember8212 XPMay-05-2017 12:09 AM

Time travel was in TOS so it doesn't bother me too much- but that was then when it was episode specific and seems weaker for excuses to make movies.

I liked Star Wars growing up. Followed them all closely just as I did with the Alien franchise once I got my courage at 11.

I have seen both of the new additions to Star Wars and enjoyed them. That being said, if I woke up tomorrow and Star Wars no longer existed, I'd be largely unaffected. The Alien franchise was actually integral to my development as a person. It heavily affected my interests and my personal world view.

Anytime I hear people getting up in arms about some issue or another I often think to myself "well at least you haven't been facehugged yet."

Heh, GOOD perspective!! :D

Star wars, no contest for me.

I am interested by the Xenomorph creature and some characters from all movies, but i am disapointed and underwhelmed by the engineers development to now.

On the other hands, i am fascinated by several concepts of Star Wars especially the force, i love the Siths(which are way more interesting than the Jedi) and i think that Star Wars Universe is more rich and more entertaining than the Alien Universe.

May the force be with everyone !

Belated May The Fourth Be With You to everyone and especially our resident SW fans!

ALIEN, hands down, it's very influential and more relatable and violent at the same time.... This story that I am writing has some influence from Alien even Star Trek, Avatar and TRON, and I have to add: because of the Star Wars hype, we never got to see TRON 3, we are going to get a reboot with Jared Leto of all people, so back to what I was saying: Star Wars? Meh... it's just the triumphant good vs evil story. Alien is more realistic, and when you get influence from the Alien franchise and a bunch of other ones to create a story and not Star Wars, You know that you gotta eliminate the latter.


And remember FOX used to have Star Wars in their stable, they have a slice left which was A New Hope... and Ridley himself said that Star Wars was brilliant.

With that being said, someone needs to make a drawing with the xenomorphs, engineers, facehuggers and hammerpedes (while hissing) running away from Jar Jar Binks  

Cleaner than Earth Actually

If the Alien Universe and media was as well developed and complex as the Star Wars Universe was, I'd definitely say Alien hands down, but since SW has really become a mythology/culture all on its own, then I'd have to say Star Wars if I was stuck on a desert island with all the materials of either Universe.

I'd definitely say "Alien/Prometheus" has a LOT of potential, for sure. I "enjoy" Alien more than any of the Star Wars movies, so it's a matter of perspective here...
