If you had to choose between watching Prometheus, Alien Covenant and Alien in one sitting or Aliens, Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection which would you choose?

As much as I love Alien and Covenant, I would go with Aliens, 3 and Resurrection as I find them as the more entertaining of the 6 films.

...f**k me.

I'd have to go for the first option simply because Alien is my favourite film ever, and I'd still rather sit through two films I don't like to watch it, than not watch it.

The first option, alternatively Alien, Aliens and A3.

Option 1.  Prometheus and Covenant are just a smidge better than Alien 3 and Resurrection anyway.

Can I just watch Sophie's Choice?  Because that's what this poll is like.

Well Streep was considered for Ripley if memory serves...

Why not be direct about it and lobotomize me?

It's Requiem that would push me over the edge though.

But Aliens is significantly better than both.

I guess each option contains one classic film and two take-it-or-leave-it options ...

I thought SiL liked the prequels.

Yea but there is a major movie missing between covenant and alien. I mean shit that is one hell of a jump.

At least aliens, alien3 and A:R would make more sense. We'd be looking at it as a Ripley mystery in aliens. Like what happened. We'd be like the marines, she apparently saw an alien and then bam, aliens everywhere. It was the mystery that made alien so great so I think that would be the better choice imo.

Yeah, but I don't care if there's a progression necessarily; I care about the films themselves.

I thought SiL liked the prequels.
I enjoyed watching Prometheus in theaters, but stopped liking it after it hit home media.

What a difficult poll.

I chose promy, covy, and Alien, but it was a difficult choice. In the end I like all the films on the list more than AR lol.

The first choice for me. Like several others here ALIEN is my all time favorite film. If I could pick out the 3 films. I'd go with ALIEN,ALIENS & ALIEN3. Though I like Prometheus and Covenant very much. I still have many viewings to go to come close to the number of times I've watched the first 3.

First option for me. ALIEN is my favourite film (as is JAWS). I don’t mind sitting through PROMETHEUS and ALIEN: COVENANT to get to the real gold.
