    It's great if you watch it as a slasher film instead of some highbrow sci-fi. I seriously don't understand the standards people try to hold this franchise to.

      How do you not watch Alien as a slasher? The scifi concepts sprinkled about are just cherries on top.

      Aliens is the only entry thats remotely "high brow"

      Romulus has also fricked it by naming the android something like Rook? I guess as a nod to Bishop? But they should have stuck with the alphabet theory... Walter was already a bit of a stretch. Oh well guess that's done now

                You loving the movie to unseen levels does not mean it's high brow, it's an Americanized action variant of the original movie

                It's an enormous step up in the sense that it doesn't actively try to outdo anything the 1st on is good at, it just focuses on delivering in other areas
                No one gives a shit about Kane or any other side character in the franchise outside of Aliens. Maybe maybe maybe Ash you can make a case for but that's about it, every other interesting character is from the sequel.

                While I agree Aliens is the best movie in the trilogy, I do like Alien 3 in its final (bluray) cut.

        Aliens is an action movie that turned the alien into a bug, it's the most low brow Alien movie.

          The notion that Alien and Aliens are somehow at different brow levels is completely absurd and doesn't hold up to any amount of scrutiny.
          Neither of them are brainless schlock or heady arthouse. They're at the exact same level of intellectual profundity.

            Alien may not be heady arthouse but Aliens is closer to brainless schlock than people want to admit.

              bullshit. Alien deals with unknown and alien forcing people to the brink. Aliens is jurassic world 2. Le corporations le greedy?

              A simple eye test says otherwise, this is a midwit response. One of them has more style, grace and pacing than the other and less action quipping.

              None of you are half as convincing as you want to appear.

              >Alien may not be heady arthouse but Aliens is closer to brainless schlock than people want to admit.
              If brainless schlock was half as good as Aliens, no one would call it brainless schlock.

              >bullshit. Alien deals with unknown and alien forcing people to the brink. Aliens is jurassic world 2. Le corporations le greedy?
              A film's plot description and themes aren't a measure of how high brow it is. Beavis&Butt-head and Network both deal with the phenomenon of television, you wouldn't say they're equally high-brow or low-brow.

              >A simple eye test says otherwise, this is a midwit response. One of them has more style, grace and pacing than the other and less action quipping.
              I don't know what a simple eye test is so you have fun with your imaginary reddit nonsense.

                sure. but one of the movies is dumb action slop which themes are elementary school tier complex. the other takes mature approach to the themes.

      No, it's terrible by any metric, especially that one. Over half the cast is just there, they have no distinguishing characteristics or charisma, they are simply there to be picked off at some point (the ugly haggard white women and the interracial couple come to mind). They make increasingly stupid and illogical decisions to the point where you can no longer invest in their survival (doctor manhattan sticking his whole head in a xenomorph egg, crew STILL not wearing helmets). And to top of it all off, the creature is shot in BROAD DAYLIGHT at flat, still angles, completely removing any aspect of actual horror.

      So what are we left with? A CGI "Faces of Death" where a bunch of unlikable generic nobodies are killed by digital clipart in the most uncreative ways.

    + Xeno itself, especially the scene where it uses its head as a hammer
    + Davids
    + Engineer genocide

    - Legitimately everything else in this film. Garbage characters, garbage plot, garbage message, the horror element does not exist, weak gore. The technical aspects are passable but are in service of what is ultimately a pretty shitty movie no one would defend if it wasn't a sequel to Prometheus and thus gave fuel to contrarians.

    It does show. The characters in Aliens being quipmaesters does not make the movie high brow or interesting to think about.
