    Yeah I saw it, and it was total garbage. Ryder as a bot and Ripley as a clone? Come on man...

    If you're gonna resurrect anyone from the franchise you can only get away with bringing back Bishop, period. And even then that's a stretch. I hope Henrickson doesn't make an appearance in this one.

    How can you claim AR as garbage then go around and praise AVP for bringing back Lance Henrickson? :confused:

    What? I never praised AvP? That was just a tangent re: Henrickson. Hell AvP was WORSE than AR!!!

    Alien was good, Alien 3 was good, Aliens - pretty good. All the rest of the films sucked IMO.

    Alien is a classic and in some ways one of the more idiosyncratic films made. Aliens is relatively prosaic action scifi movie. Alien 3, is David Fincher's worst film, easily. Alien Resurrection is awful. Also terrible, any movie featuring a Predator. Yes, all of them.

    I liked Predator. I loved Predator 2.

    I am completely batshit about Alien, Aliens, and Alien 3.

    I know Alien 3 gets a bad rap, but I thought it was a great film, and almost as strong as the first.

    Aliens....eh, for an action movie it was good but it doesn't seem to fit the franchise. Still has it's charm though so I don't bash it.

    Aliens is definitely in my top five. I freaking love everything about it.....the sound of the weapons, hudson and hicks, Paul Reiser was great in it too and I loved when he finally got killed.

    Sounds like Scott is blending Blade Runner (and Soldier :laugh:) with the Alien universe.

    Yeah, as an action flick, I give it high marks.

    Aliens is my favorite of the series. Love everything about that film. Place Alien as a close second.

    Seems like we are in a minority, but I really enjoyed Predator 2 too. Film gets a lot of hate for some reason.
