so what movies out of this series did you thoroughly enjoy.

will you see the alien rerelease, will you buy the alien quadrilogy, what is your favorite moment from all the movies.....

DISCUSS!!!!!!!!
 
In my opinion, the best one was the first one, Alien, directed by Ridley Scott, a horror movie masterpiece that i cant get tired of see it again and again.Great movie. The second one, aliens , was very good too, but less terror and more action. And i didnt like the last two ones.
 
I worship the first three movies.
The last one wasn't asgood but it's not the aberation some people claim it is. The newborn's design didn't help much either :(
 
finally someone who respects alien 3 for what it is and not what it isnt, but my only ***** about it is that they killed hicks :(, i do hope the deleted scenes add something good to it, anybody know what kind of deleted scenes will be added in?
 
The funny thing is, Alien3 is getting more and more respect as time passes... ;)

As for the deleted scenes, you could read about them on IMDb or in this excelent site. Under the Alien3 section you'll find a sub-section called "Deleted Scenes", it not only describes them, it also has videos of some of those scenes. These were mostly taken from a copy of Fincher's Workprint.
 
I love the Alien and Aliens......but, more Aliens
I like the 3rd very much as a movie, it is fairly bad as a sequel.
I think that the movie as the style of David Fincher all over it, but, to kill Bishop, Newt and most importantly.....Hicks, it was a dumb ass idea.

Of the 4rd i like the Ron Perlman character and Ripley is good to as a clone (but, she shouldn´t have died in the 3rd).
It as a good photography...but, it´s a weak movie
 
Yeah but, actually I... *Stares at Isildur's Heir's avatar*
 
Aliens is one of the best movies I've ever seen. Its a great story, cool special effects and Riply kicks ass. The queen alien is awesome to look at. I love its hiss. Im starting to like Alien 3 more but I still cant watch Alien 4 all the way through.

Any word on an Alien 5?
 
Aliens will forever rock my world.

I love all of the first three films. I used to loathe Alien3 (there I was in the theatre, thinking: "THEY KILLED HICKS! OMIGOD THEY KILLED HICKS!".... and then the same thing for Newt. All that, and now she's dead....?! I was outraged.) The fact that these two were dead ruined the movie for me for a very long time.

As time passed, I began to see that this film was very realistic, as in, that's probably what would happen in real life. That is how life is. Not many movies have such a negative ending. The good guy does not win. How often do you see that?! Cool!

The Queen is, in my opinion, the most frightening negative film protagonist I have ever seen. At that point in 2 where Ripley tells Newt, "Hold on!" and she starts to climb the ladder near the elevators, and then the Queen sticks her head around the corner... and then you see the Queen coming toward them, screaming in anger and throwing s#!@ out of her way.... I think I would have just died right then and there of sheer fear.

Alien 4 sucks, in my humble opinion. I keep trying to like it. And I keep failing. I think it is Ryder who ruins it for me. She's so.... shrill. Yeah, you're a badass.... you, all of what? 85 pounds? You're punching men twice your size out? Sure, I'm taking her seriously.
 
p.s. When are we gonna see an Alien film where they finally, at last & about time too return to LV-427 and investigate the Derelict? It's still out there.... We need to send a squad or two of Colonial Marines over there to investigate ASAP.

Preferably without Ripley. Weaver is anti-gun, and I think this is one of the things that screwed up Alien 4.

ya that would be pretty cool to go there and investigate wht happened to the crew of aliens, i think alien vs predator is kinda like that..... i mean the game
 
or they could have an origin of the derelict spacecraft
 
I've actually only seen two Alien movies all the way through, and that would be Aliens and Resurrection. I'd go with Aliens as being my favorite for now.
 
Well, if Fox continue with their "masterful" plan of letting Anderson direct the AvP movie, I suspect the we won't be seeing a sequel in like 20 years. Well, unless the Alien re-release and the new DVD collection that is coming out turn out to be some truly smashing sucess... er, sucesses... er, whatever :o
 
1 and 2 are the best, 3 and 4 are not good
 
2 and 4 are my favorite
 
does anyone know why that ps2 game... Aliens: Colonial Marines was cancelled like a year ago, it looked badass :cool:
 
I have not freakin' idea, they just pulled the plug... it looked REALLY amazing... instead they're releasing that AvP Extincion strategy game.
 
ALIENS is the best thrill.

ALIEN is the best scare.

I HATED Alien 3 when I first saw it in the theatre...and I liked resurection a lot the first time I saw it, but it seriousely wore out on me.

Resurrection has a good pace and nice cinematopgrahy but that's about it.

Alien 3 takes getting used to, but still isn't up to par.
 
Ressurection was campy, unlike the frist three. the first one was easily the best. aliens and alien 3 are tied. alien 3 was so good for this reason: in sequals, writers try to make the story more extreme. give it a larger scale (alien had one alien, aliens had more aliens, this time fighting soldiers thus making it BIGGER and BETTER) while this may work for on sequal it gets boring. alien 3 put ONE against people with NO weaponms. and it was still a good movie.
 
its just that they killed off HICKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GOD DAMN YOU DAVID GLIER, WALTER HILL, AND LARRY FERGUSON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
i just looked on a site that has the quadrilogy release date at december 1st instead of november 11th, i hope this isnt true.
 
Alien 1-3 are awesome, 4 sucks major monkey balls!
 
wolfwood: "I've actually only seen two Alien movies all the way through, and that would be Aliens and Resurrection."

Aw, man, you haven't seen 1? Don't cheat yourself a moment longer: go rent it! It is awesome! You will like it!

bigricky: "does anyone know why that ps2 game... Aliens: Colonial Marines was cancelled like a year ago, it looked badass"

I am SO P!SSED about that. I was so looking forward to that game - I think I've just about worn out my copy of "Alien: Trilogy".... a game that will live forever in my memory as the most fun videogame ever. I was hoping for a new one just as fun.

And ricky, don't be too quick to blame the writers for killing off Hicks - from what I understand, they were planning on bringing him back. Then Michael Biehn declined to reprise his role, so they had to write him out. Wouldn't do it, no matter what!

After hearing that, I liked Biehn a lot less than I did previously. I don't know why, but that really tarnished my image of him.
