I know this round would have worked better if I had included Predator 2 but honestly I just couldn't bear to sit through that again

Alien: Resurrection

You can see some of the trademark Joss Whedon fingerprints on this. I feel like this has the second best action of all of the Alien films (after Aliens, of course.) The swimming xenomorphs are terrifying.

Alien

This is a classic and I love it. I’m afraid modern and subsequent generations won’t be able to appreciate this as much. It is sooo slow getting started that I don’t dare show my kids. They wouldn’t last 20 minutes. I’m afraid the desolate, scope is lost on smaller screens, too.

Aliens

This has some great characters in some fantastic, terrifying action. I feel like this is one of the better (top 10?) action movies of the 80s. While watching this time I was struck by how many of my favorite movies from that era feature Michael Biehn.

Alien Vs Predator

Its dumb how long it takes to get to the marquee matchups. I get that we need lots of victims for our titular characters to dispatch but almost all of the human scenes are tedious, spent waiting for the big baddies to face off. I feel like the plot is unnecessarily convoluted. All we want is to see aliens fighting predators, it doesn’t enhance the story to have the predators be the source of our ancient pyramids.

Its interesting to me to compare this to the other big vs movie, Jason vs Freddy. In FvJ, the more articulate Freddy is cast as the bad guy in the conflict while the more primitive Jason is the good guy. AvP does the opposite in casting the more humanistic, rational predators as the faces vs the primal, savage xenomorphs as the heels.

Predator

This movie is so macho. Jesse Ventura has some hall of fame level tough guy dialogue, not to mention his bad ass mini gun he’s lugging around the jungle. The predator is a Mount Rushmore level 80s villain.

Alien 3

I think this is a largely mediocre sequel. However, when compared to the rest of David Fincher’s work it is very terrible. Perhaps the sunny side of his work here is that he used the things he learned here to make his next three films: Se7en, The Game and Fight Club.

Really? I think it's great. If I run across it I have a harder time changing the channel than I do with the original.
