Cool The greatest and toughest movie poll evar

It's a simple question, Norm!
Everyone knows the latter two movies don't count

You're right, this is a tough poll. I actually have no idea which one should be considered better, but Aliens happens to be my favorite science fiction movie following Star Wars 5.

Wasn't tough for me. As much as I love Alien, I simply have more fun watching Aliens.

This is a rigged poll. These movies are in two totally separate worlds. I picked Alien because it's a great horror movie, where Aliens is just a a very above average action/sci-fi flick.

Which is exactly the beauty of it all. Same franchise, two different genres essentially and they remain true to the other.

I had to look that movies up. In Germany they are called "Alien: The creepy creature from another world" and "Alien: The Return" or just Alien and Alien 2 (The subtitles are in german so I translated them for you)

But I like Alien a lot more than Aliens.

I own the Alien Quadrilogy set. (and not AVP - because it was a total disgrace)

I'm gonna have to agree with NIMH Rat that Aliens is an above average sci-fi action film, while Alien comes at you from left field because nothing like it had been done before. Aliens III is good, but it's been broadcast to death. Alien Resurrection was a bit uncalled for, but nowhere near as poorly implemented as AVP.

I liked Aliens III even more than Aliens. One alien alone is much cooler than an army. And the atmosphere in Alien is just brilliant, so this is my clear winner.

I thought Alien was great, Aliens was amazing, Alien 3 was bearable, and Alien Resurrection was a complete disgrace. The opening scene of that one pretty much sums it up.
