Movie Series - Alien Movies

From the original Ridley Scott vision to James Cameron and two more movie sequels. The Aliens have been in comics, books and video games, and they have even tangled with the Predator from time to time. Are they still scary- or have they "Boned the Fish"?

1 I regret to say that Prometheus was disappointing. Didn't tie into Alien well at all and didn't really make any sense. It was visually stunning, but the story often reminded me of Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and Star Trek V. The writer of LOST wrote it, and it shows. Stuff just happens and it is never explained. It ends on a cliffhanger for a sequel that may or may not happen. Meh. I'd recommend waiting to rent it unless you really need to see it in 3D. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on June 10, 2012, 5:50 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Alien 3 is where it jumped. Yeah I'd agree the whole arbitary killing off of Newt and Hicks was a horrible start, but overall I think the problem with Alien 3 is that it just isn't engaging or involving. The first two films sucked you in and held your attention. This one just feels like a tedious and utterly depressing time-killing exercise. There's nothing sympathetic about the characters, nothing enticing about its environment, nothing thrilling about the predicament because you don't care what the alien does anymore, it won't be anything new. Its like the makers knew they'd have an assured audience of fans on the strength of the previous films and didn't feel the need to make it involving or engaging. The Alien vs Predator films are much the same and Alien Resurrection just felt incoherent, and like Alien 3 it was populated by nasty characters and a repellently mean spirited tone. Should have ended it with Aliens. -- Submitted By: (Tanlee) on October 28, 2009, 4:07 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Chubby Rain nails it again! The BTF moment for the Alien series was DEFINITELY the the opening of Alien 3: Hicks and Newt (Ripley's fellow survivors from Aliens) are killed off as the credits roll. And because we're led to care about them as the Aliens story unfolds, the fact that their deaths are throwaways is a double slap in the face. The fourth movie didn't do anything to redeem the mess from the third - the writer/director team of Joss Whedon and Jean-Pierre Jenuet seemed to be operating with the goal of "let's see how much weirdness we can cram down the throats of the fans." And the AvP movies have done even less to redeem the mess from the fourth. That's very unfortunate, because the AvP concept makes pretty decent reading - too bad the movies dropped the ball. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on May 25, 2009, 9:25 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 A clear BTF moment-the first five minutes of the third film. Characters from the 2nd film die off camera- and Aliens- SOMEHOW- survive to make it into this film (with no explanation- then a long boring story about an all male prison on a moon- Ripley then dies. And it just gets worse- Sigourney Weaver HAD to be in the 4 th film (for no good reason) as a CLONE!! And then there is the atrocious "Alien Baby" that some writer was actually paid to make up. Don't even get me started on the crap fest Alien V. Predator films. But the first 00:00:01 of the 3rd film- Alien3 - was a clear as day "bone the fish" moment. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on April 15, 2009, 9:39 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
