So I finally watched Alien last year and just finished Aliens for the first time, and I'm confused.

People actually like Aliens and say it's as good/better than Alien and the point where the series died?

Alien was 1000x better than this boring overlong shooting gallery. I don't get how this is accepted.

its not just shooting, why r u an autist?

Both are overrated.
>>
>>64648652
I won't argue that because you're right but at least Alien was entertaining
>>
>>64648555
its good for different reasons but in the same amount

3 and Resurrection are clusterfucks
>>
Aliens is a better movie, I'm sorry you have pleb taste, anon.
>>
>>64648702
Are they worth watching at all in a "look at the freakshow and laugh" kind of way

What I know about III's ending seems slightly interesting
>>
>>64648555
This is our general consensus, ignore reddit.
>>
>>64648652
Nope. Alien is a masterpiece of a movie. Aliens is a decent sci-fi action flick.
>>
>>64648737
3 is just dull. It's ok, and takes it back to Alien, but it's not good. Resurrection is just bad. It's dumber than all hell, and sucks donkey ass. Worst flick Whedon has ever written.
>>
>>64648887
>Whedon

oooh, already completely unsold from Resurrection now
>>
>>64648555
Aliens is a great litmus test for people who understand film.

Unfortunately, you do not.
>>
>>64648940
it's an uninspired action flick

what the fuck do you want from me
>>
>>64648970
I want you to go back to >>>/r/eddit/ and stop hating on based James "The Sequel Stallion" Cameron.

>>64649182
not an argument pal, James Cameron always raises the bar
>>
>>64648555
It's like T1 and T2

T1/alien had better story/more of a horror vibe

T2/aliens is more of an action/adventure
>>
Alien has remained timeless and creepy while Aliens has become incredibly dated and didn't really have much to offer in the realm of the lore behind the original film. Sure it was a good action movie but besides that it didn't excel on any other fronts.

It's only uninspired, to you, because you watched all the later movie garbage that stole from it, and assumed it was unoriginal.
>>
>>64648652
Not really. Alien was a milestone, Aliens was still a very good Sci-fi/Action/Horror mix.
>>
OP, HERE'S MY DISSERTATION AS TO WHY ALIENS IS SUPERIOR, FROM A NARRATIVE STANDPOINT, TO ALIEN!!!FACT!!! http://247365hatemachine.blogspot.ca/2015/02/alien-vs-aliens.html

>>64648652
Both were good you steaming pile of shit

>>64648970
>using a sci-fi horror property as the backdrop for staging your futuristic Vietnam war allegory

Some people prefer alien, some people prefer aliens. Both are great movies, so I think it comes down to personal preference
>>
Alien was boring, had shitty pacing, fake as shit alien suit and a pathetic climax

So basically, the exact opposite of Aliens.
>>
I love them both but Alien is better.
