    Alien is more suspenseful, Aliens is almost as suspenseful but with much more action.

    Hmmmmm.... :bigthink:

    I'm gonna say the first one, because it was kind of a groundbreaker. I just got it on BluRay with the Director's cut, and I'm still loving it. I like all of them, really.

    Alien was groundbreaking and very influential, but Aliens is one of the greatest action and Sci Fi films of all time.

    Did you get the blu ray box set they just put out with all 4 films? I'm watching the director's cut of each film with the little markers turned on that show you which scenes are the additions. Pretty cool way to watch them.

    And 4 is still mildly enjoyable, albeit stupid as fuck

    I think the reason most people dislike 3 is that it's so different from the first 2.

    I enjoyed it. Charles S. Dutton's finest role.

    No, I will eventually. I love that stuff, because if I really like a movie, I'll watch it repeatedly...

    Yeah, it's very, very, VERY dark and not an especially "fun" movie. Plus (spoiler alert) literally everyone dies except for Morse

    Yes, I'm obsessed enough with those movies that I know the prisoner's names

    I was really disappointed when Newt and Hicks were killed off at beginning of 3, sort of ruined it for me, well that and the depressingly drab color palette of the thing.

    Alien was more of a horror/science fiction film Aliens was just outright action. If Aliens is on I can start watching at any point and will likely finish the movie, not so much for Alien, just doesn't lend itself to that kind of viewing.
