Well, first of all, let Me say I am a huge fan of the Predator series much like I am of the Alien Franchise. I was an Alien fan first but I instantly loved Predator for many reasons. It was awesome seeing Predator 2 then after all those years seeing Alien vs. Predator 1 & 2 then the great Predators movie. I'm a huge movie score fan and these scores with the franchise are some of the best ever heard IMO. Most of the time I place Predator and Alien in the same canon and even Terminator sometimes in My mind, fan stuff and things like that. DO YOU consider Predator canon with Alien? Do you consider the AVP films to be a part of the Predator & Alien movies or just one of them or perhaps neither and that they are just for fun? What about Terminator (the comics got Me started with this then the small tease in the TV show made Me have stories even further)? Or perhaps you are only a Predator fan and only consider them movies to be canon? Maybe your just an Xenomorph fan? Talk about WHY you are a Alien & Predator fan, what you liked/disliked about the movies, which is your favorite, who is your favorite characters, what is your favorite scenes etc.

Allow Me to briefly commentate of the Predator movies to show My love for the films, there is so much I could talk about but I will save that for later!

THE PREDATOR MOVIES!

These are the ones that made alien movies in general pop IMO. Seeing Arnold against an alien being was something never seen before. The Predators' are some of the most awesome and neatest looking alien beings in the history of cinema IMO, there is countless things that makes them great. The movies that they are a part of some of are the coolest and while the original is a true classic, its sequels are also quite fun to watch and can make you cringe at times.

Predator

When I was a little guy I loved horror and action movies. One of My childhood heroes of the 80s was Arnold, seeing him in a movie against an alien was so far different then Commando and the Runningman. Another hero of Mine, Jesse "The Body" Ventura was also a treat to see in the movie. Carl Weathers was really good and I liked him a lot too. I wasn't crazy of the character deaths and still cringe about some of them to this day. Of course seeing The Predator was just fantastic, an alien that large with that tech, wow! Alan Silvestri's score made it so great!

Favorite Character(s): Dutch, Blaine and Dillon and The Predator.

Favorite Scene(s): The entire beginning credits, the fire fight, and the fight between the Predator and Dutch.

Scene that made Me cringe: The death of Blaine and especially the destruction of Dillon Shocked

Predator 2

At first I found this one more gory than the first but got use to it. I completely accepted it as Predator's sequel. The characters were so unique than the previous ones but gosh, Danny Glover, Gary Busy, Bill Paxton, Adam Baldwin were sure good. I thought it was cool that it took place in the city and that the Pred looked different. The ending opened up so much for the future, I loved that! Silvestri's score once again provided even more brilliance for the film. At the moment with Me, Predator 2 is tied with Predators as being My favorite of the series.

Favorite Character(s): The Predator, Harrigan, Keyes, Jerry and Garber.

Favorite Scene(s): The entire penthouse scene, the subway and ship scenes!

Scene that made Me cringe: The destruction of Keyes!

Alien vs. Predator

It was about time they made it, I had to get use to the characters but they were cool. I thought the Preds & Xenomorphs were really great and that the Alien Queen finally got justice because IMO the Queen was poorly used in A:R. Gosh what an ending and story! I really liked Harald Kloser's music, it was dandy. A PG-13 rating? You gotta be kidding Me but it was good though.

Favorite Character(s): Weyland, Verheiden, and the Alien Queen!

Favorite Scene(s): The Alien fight and the emerging return of the Queen!

Scene that made Me cringe: None.

The Alien & Predator Movie Fanchises Alien_vs_predator_ver4_zps0ce09074

Alien vs. Predator 2: Requiem

As I was able to see this at the show on My Birthday:) Wow, I loved this one. the story was good and I did like the characters and the action was great. I digged the PredAlien, she was so neat. I thought the ship scenes in the beginning was da bomb but I loved the siren scene with the National Guard, that rocked! The new Pred called The Wolf, I thought he was a new thing that needed to be seen in the series. I thought the gore parts were actually awesome. I thought it was funny about the Papa John's scene. Brian Tyler's score was so epic indeed:)

Favorite Character(s): Kelly, the Wolf and the Predalien!

Favorite Scene(s): The beginning, the National Guard and the battle in the sewer!

Scene that made Me cringe: The hunters demise and fight between The Wolf and the Predalien (the end).

The Alien & Predator Movie Fanchises Aliens_vs_predator_requiem_ver4_zps31649edb

Predators

In the year of Danny Trejo, the first time I saw it I had mixed emotions about it but after seeing it again I really liked it and thought it was really fun. Brody was actually really good and he is not one of My favs. I digged how nuts Fishbourne was. All of the other characters were really good. The Hanzo scene I thought was so needed because P1 lacked that. I loved Mr. Black, he is arguably the most extraordinary Predator ever seen! The Hounds scene actually scared Me a bit, the first time I saw it I just was not expecting it at all (I didn't read any spoilers then). I loved John Debney's score, I was amazed how well he adapted to Silvestri's + making it his own. Thank goodness I was able to go to the theater to see it and I am really hoping for a sequel really soon!

Favorite Character(s): Nolan and Mr. Black

Favorite Scene(s): Not of this Earth, the Hound attack and the huge Predator battle near the end.

Scene that made Me cringe: The fights' finish of the Predators.

THE ALIEN MOVIES!

By watching horror movies at a very young age, Alien was a spook-fest for Me but I loved it, something with Aliens! So ever since I saw them together right after Aliens came out with My Grandpa, we watched the countless times back to back in the dark on the old VHS, I loved that so much Sad I had loved them movie ever since! The whole franchise is just a superb one, I became a huge fan! However, after waiting over 25 years for Prometheus to come out, I had such mixed emotions of the movie and the franchise as a whole. I still question it among other things even after a year and a half of seeing it on the IMAX screen.

Alien

It holds up to tremendous horror and sci-fi standards whether it is the regular version or the Director's cut IMO. Though it was the first I saw of the franchise of course but it is not My favorite. While it was amazing seeing Sigourney Weaver in this film after seeing her as Dana Barrett in Ghostbusters (another one of My all-time fav movies/franchises), I thought it was cool how she was in Alien. I liked the other guys as well. Everything about the movie was great especially Jerry Goldsmith's musical score. The Alien itself was of course frightening at the first time but I began to really like him as an horror icon.

Favorite Character: Ripley

Favorite Scene(s): The scenes when they land of the planet and go into the derelict and they see the Space Jockey and all of those eggs!

Scene that made Me cringe: The Chestburster scene!

The Alien & Predator Movie Fanchises Alien_ver5_zpsfc1accb7

Aliens

This was an amazing sequel and pure greatness to Alien! It had fantastic special effects, story, and characters. The first time I saw it there was so much mystery for My young self. I thought Bill Paxton was so hilarious, his Hudson character is without a doubt one of the most entertaining characters ever! The first time I saw The Queen, I was in awe at how awesome she was, never in a movie previously did I see such a great creature like her Exclamation James Horner's score was such a treat and perfect for the film. Aliens is arguably the best of the franchise IMO!

Favorite Character: Hudson

Favorite Scene(s): The Alien Queen's first appearance!

Scene that made Me cringe: None.

Alien 3

Oh this is without My favorite of the whole franchise, I just loved it! It was the first Alien film I saw at the show in the tremendous year of 1992. It was so similar yet so far different at the same time as the previous movies. Weaver was again at top of her game. It has cool characters and the Xenomorph was quite different. It was a very emotional movie at times and was just really fascinating and entertaining to watch. Elliot Goldenthal's score was undoubtedly superb and was like the score of the entire decade!

Favorite Characters(s): Ripley, Andrews, Clemens, and Golic.

Favorite Scene(s): The Beginning/Introduction.

Scene that made Me cringe: The birth of the Xenomorph.

The Alien & Predator Movie Fanchises Alien_three_ver1_xlg_zpsa00392aa

Alien Resurrection

This was the one that I thought was going to be such a great movie back in the day but really I was disappointed the first time I saw it. With later viewings it got kinda better. I still can't believe how Michael Wincott's character was so poorly used. I loved the Alien Queen from Aliens and she became one of My most favorite monsters of horror but when I saw what happen to her for the first time in A:R I just cried, literally because she meant that much to Me! Though it seems silly yes but as a big Alien fan who takes the movies seriously I was so disappointed and the scene with the New Born was just so horrible to watch. Sure, A:R had its moments but really was kinda of a bummer. John Frizzel's score however was dandy!

Favorite Character: Ripley, Frank Elgyn and Dr, Gediman.

Favorite Scene(s): The Underwater battle and the spaceship scenes.

Scene that made Me cringe: The scene with the Queen and New Born, the end scene with the New Born, and the scene of General Perez.

Prometheus

This is the one that I had been waiting for over 25 years to see and I finally got the chance to see it on the IMAX screen! While it was clearly "an Alien" movie, it was quite different. It was so radical but the whole who made us thing got Me. As a person whom worships God and believes in Jesus Christ, it was an emotional ride. Still today have I mixed emotions about the movie. All of the characters were and special effects were fine and the score by Marc Streitenfeld was a great one and matched the film and what it was about on spot. However, there is so many questions unanswered and so many codes within codes of so many things to be decoded it seems like a very nerve racking puzzle that is nearly impossible to put together. The overall thought of the future and Weyland (if you are in as deep in the story and franchise as I am) is depressing. The Engineers were impressive and as a person who studies Ufology and believes in most of it I clearly saw where they were going with the plot twists. I am 50/50 with the movie, half I love it and half I just don't know. There is so much more to be done. I wish they wouldn't have developed it to be forced into a possible new trilogy and just made it longer and tied in with Alien. There must be a sequel to Prometheus, there absolutely must be!

Favorite Character(s): Vickers, Last Engineer and Adult Trilobite.

Favorite Scene(s): The Saucer scene (beginning), the awakening of the Last Engineer and battle of Giants!

Scene that made Me cringe: The Hammerpede and the Cesarian scenes.

The Fan Films!

Over the years, there have been a number of fan created movies that can be seen on YouTube. While many have their opinions and emotions of these, I think these are great and I put these in My "Expanded Universe" of Alien & Predator. Here is My favorite ones Exclamation

Predator: WWII (Untitled Predator Fan Film)

I have dubbed this as Predator: WWII. This is tied with another Predator fan movie (see below) for My TOP My favorite #1 spot. It was nearly perfect and paid a huge homage to the original. The use of Alan Silvestri's score was so spot on! I got excited about this as much I did the first movie, like I was a kid again Shocked Very entertaining indeed!

Favorite Character(s): Monday, Yeager, Allegro.

Favorite Scene(s): The beginning and the shootout!

Scene that made Me cringe: None really.

Batman: Dead End

This along with Predator: WWII is tied as My TOP favorite Predator and Alien movie. Though just not an Alien and Predator movie, this has the most excellent and true "live action" Batman ever IMO and it also has the most superb Joker as well. This was such a great ride, Elliot Goldenthal's score was used perfectly here. This is My favorite Batman film of all-time!

Favorite Character(s): Batman, The Joker, and The Predator.

Favorite Scene(s): The beginning, the Predator leap off the roof, the end.

Scene that made Me cringe: None.

My other favorites!

Wolverine vs. Predator: By Bat in the Sun, Super Power Beat Down takes another great gander here! The Best Wolverine on screen! I thought this is what they should have done in Hollywood for the X-Men Wolverine franchise! The Predator is just great as well, I love his vocal effects! Before the actual movie starts watch for the Arnold impersonator and oh especially Kelly Hu @ SDCC 13, she is hilarious!

Predator in Sweden: Though it might not be the greatest, I love the chase scene with Silvestri's score and I just find this one hilarious!

I spent half an hour typing on my iPad and went to get a photo and lost the text.

Readers Digest version:

I like Alien 1 and 2.  Sci-fi Horror to Action -- great!  The rest of the Alien franchise is a disappointment: it strayed from the formula and was unsuccessful.  Pairing Alien with Predator was a good idea.

Love Predator because it has stayed within the parameters of the Action Genre.

Paul Newman was given the option to play Ripley in Alien but he turned it down.  He would not have looked this good...

That's a very memorable moment, Doug!  lol!  Cool


I've just found this.. Brandon,

Alien was a brilliant film, and also a shocker for it's time!!! ( A pointer of future cinema gore to come ) I remember seeing Alien on the Big screen at the cinema (Best) in Aug/Sept 1979.
I could never forget the ship's super intelligent computers, I thought they were amazing. The sense of being onboard that ship in space was real for me, I got drawn into the film straight away, I had totally forgotten about my girlfriend sitting next to me in the Cinema lol! .

The "Alien" film's colour, music and special effects were something really special. The shocker was the chest busting scene, and the out of control exploding synthetic human cheers(white milk blood!) that made me cringe! I almost threw up! lol! I was working in a Butchers shop at the time of seeing that movie  Wink
I think they used real animal blood and offal (pigs liver/blood?) for the gory bits in the film.

I think a part of that film was shot in Battersea power station (London)? I'm sure they deleted some scenes from that film when it was released on VHS video. There was a scene when the ship's captain was cocooned up on one of the ship's corridor walls, I vaguely remember that scene at the cinema showing. There was also some jumpy moments, one of them was when we got to see the Alien for the first time! Shocked

The original Alien film seems to lose it's magic on large modern day home screens, the film is definitely worth seeing at the Cinema.
Fave part in "Alien": All of it!  Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy 

I'm also a big fan of Aliens. My fave modern day sc-fi film has got to be the first "Starship Troopers" That is mental, very shocking moments, and not for the faint hearted, I would love to see it on the big screen. I'm hoping to get a big screen projector this year, so I can watch my " Starship Troopers" DVD collection and other classic movies like they were meant to be watched  Very Happy
Fave "Starship Troopers" moment/s: All of it!  Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy

The most bizarre film ever: "Eraserhead!" (1977) shot in black and white, watching that film will put you off eating chicken!  Shocked ShockedShockedlol!

The new "Lost In Space" film is also a good one, I liked it!  cheers  cheers  cheers  cheers

I haven't seen "Prometheus" yet, I'm looking forward to seeing it, and not the Youtu-e spoiler snatches.

I like Alien 1 and 2.  Sci-fi Horror to Action -- great!  The rest of the Alien franchise is a disappointment: it strayed from the formula and was unsuccessful.  Pairing Alien with Predator was a good idea.  

Love Predator because it has stayed within the parameters of the Action Genre.

Paul Newman was given the option to play Ripley in Alien but he turned it down.  He would not have looked this good...

Shame about that but thanks very much for the effort, you did well Smile Sorry but I disagree with you on the other Alien films but I am glad you like Predator!

Yeah, that pic of Ripley was sure the thing back then and heck it is is great rabbit

I am so disappointed, Prometheus 2 is/was the most anticipated movie of Mine like of all-time but according to Wikipedia the movie has been delayed Rolling Eyes

The sequel was scheduled to begin filming in late 2014, for release on March 4, 2016.[255][256] But later in August 2014, Fox announced Scott was instead working on an adaptation of The Martian for a 2015 release, while the Prometheus sequel's March 2016 release date was replaced with Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.[257] wrote:

I am so disappointed  Mad  There needs to be a movie to tie in the huge gap between Prometheus and Alien! If they would have had the stupid idea of going for a spin-off type movie that needed to be made into a new trilogy, they could have finished it by now but nnnnoooooooo, they could do that  Exclamation  Exclamation  Exclamation  Exclamation  Exclamation  Exclamation  Exclamation  I am so dang disappointed by the news  Mad  pale  Sad   Crying or Very sad
