Avpr simply because I find a few of the scenes to be a bit more creepy and disturbing.

I'll prefer Resurrection but maternity ward sequence including notoriously know egg-barfing scene is pretty scary and f**ked up, I'll give Requiem that.

I used to hate Resurrection so much. Still do for multitude of reasons that I post once in a while because this list is as big as an article, but I mostly hated it for ruining what I thought was a perfect trilogy and continuing it despite such a great closure in such a cheap way, and dragging the mythology from a trilogy made by masters into a silly late 90s star trekkie action flick filled with all that was wrong with late 90s.  AVP:R is a spinoff and a separate story so it would not have been part of the Ripley saga, therefore this wouldn't directly ruin it because the saga would have still been a trilogy, so my vote goes for AVP:R

Agree 100% mate, Alien 3 was/is the perfect ending.

At least A:R happens 200 years later and it is not really THE Ripley we are watching.

No Ripley, No Weyland Yutani, no real aliens either, since theyre genetic mutants made from an unpure source. So its easier to distance it from the series. Its not Ripley story anymore, which has ended in A3

They are both SHIT.

I only saw AvP-R at the cinema once and again online just to give it "another chance". Never bothered since 2008. That's what you get when you hire fanboy FX guys to direct.

Resurrection I saw at cinema and as I'm a completist had it on a single DVD and again when it was with the DVD Quadrilogy and then BR Anthology. I watched them just cos I owned it and all the extras just so I could say I'd done so. I never voluntarily watch it. That's what you get when you hire a pretentious art-fag who hardly speaks English to direct.

If I had to chose one to watch though it would be Resurrection. At least I can f**king see what's going on. Hang on, maybe it's less painful if I DON'T see what's going on....

Maybe, it's just my poor knowledge of English but I honestly don't see case of homophobia in that post

"Fag", amongst other things, is a pejorative for gay people.

Although confusingly it can also mean cigarette in the UK.

"Can I bum a fag?" for instance can be completely innocuous over here.
