James Cameron's usually a master, and this was no exception.  Aliens, by a far shot.  Not that Alien wasn't bad, but Aliens was just so much more fun to watch.

This isn't a surprise to me, as I'm not a fan of horror but love adventure/action, if done right.  Still Alien is my favorite horror, as its actually a horror movie I like.

But if I'd REALLY have to pick . . . I say watch the Rifftrax version of Alien.  You won't stop laughing for a week.

I have to admit i still haven't seen the original movie all the way through on account of hiding behind(by order of age when watching) two walls, the sofa, my hands and finally closed eyes(the last one was about 4 months ago).  I am now 32 years old but that movie still terrifies me to this day.

Both are good, but if having to choose, the first one :)

Two very different films, really. One is a horror movie, the other is an action movie. And it's Alien for me, always will be. :) Though I love both.

I like them both in different ways, as well.  I'll toss a coin...  Damnit!  How the hell did it land on Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem?!

Apples and oranges. They're both equally good in different ways.

Completely agree... but do you enjoy the horror/suspense version more or do you prefer the action take on it...? :D

What I like about the first is the atmosphere, and about the second the aggressive nature of the story. I just like them both too much.

I just love the atmo, lighting, design and camera work of the original. So... I would always opt for the first movie. :D But that's a taste thing.

Oooh, that's tough, I place them in entirely different movie categories.

That's true... but do you more enjoy the action version or the moody atmospheric horror version? =)

Still hard to answer, but I guess on a purely enjoyment level, I'd have to say Aliens.

Fand Aliens immer nervig mit den blöden Marines.

Hehe. Ja kann ich nachvollziehen. Natürlich sind es unterschiedliche kategorien in denen sich die filme bewegen. Die action und der look von Aliens is ganz gut... aber ich mag die atmo und feel des ersten trotzdem wesentlich besser. :) Wenn ich entscheiden müsste welchen ich anschauen will... würd ich fast immer Alien sagen.

Just found out Blade Runner takes place in the same universe as Alien. So cool.
