Alien franchise: ranking the movies in order of quality

22 January 2015 7:45 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Alien and Aliens are classics. But how do the other sequels, prequel and spin-offs compare? We try to rank them in descending order...

Ranking any franchise is a personal and difficult process, but the Alien series represents its own challenges. Were you more affected by the intimate shocks of the 1979 original, or the more action-led 1986 sequel? Were you impressed by Alien 3's commitment to its bleak tone, or irked by its soupy darkness?

You're sure to have your own opinions as to how the Alien movies should be ranked, though we'd wager that, like us, you'd place the Alien Vs Predator spin-offs quite far down the list. But then there's Ridley Scott's prequel, Prometheus, a film some might rank far above Jean-Pierre Jeunet's quirky Alien Resurrection, and perhaps even David Fincher's Alien 3.

Accepting, then, that the ranking below is very much down to personal taste, »
