Yeah, that's my order too.

Cool. Alien comes close to Aliens, but I do enjoy watching all of them since I've got the Quadrilogy set. ;D

I can never choose. I love the first three equally. Hate Res though.  :-\

I'll have to say the order they came out, actually.  :)

Alien, Aliens, Alien3, Resurrection.

I think action is great and all that, but the creepy eerie feeling and intensity of Alien, I just don't think Aliens can match. But I put both movies very close together still.

Any particular reason? Don't get me wrong, I'm not slamming you or anything - I like 1/2/3 all the same.

I liked the dark, eerie beauty of the movie. The bleak hopelessness that underlies the notion that nothing is certain and that one shouldn't expect a "Hollywood ending".

Aliens has been called a "roller coaster ride of a movie". In a way, the third movie was as well, but instead of rising into the air, the "ride" takes you underground, where one can almost see the "dark Satanic Mills" that Blake had written about.

Sure, one sees what one searches for, but there was a greater opportunity in Alien³ for one to find all kinds of metaphor, as it didn't rely on convention as Aliens had. There were all kinds of symbolism to be found in Alien³, especially Gnostic and alchemical. If there is any religious symbolism to be found, it's not the kind taught in Sunday School in little black books and pastel-colored paperbacks. It is more likely to be found in the writings of Böhme and the paintings of Bosch.

I really like 3 as well. I can't rate the first 3 in any order because I love them all for what they are. But seems you enjoy A3 for some the reasons I do.  :) I loved the gothic feel to it, especially the soundtrack which helped enhance the experience.

Though I have to re-watch 3 though, as I've seen the first loads of times.
