Ranking All The Alien & Predator Movies, From Worst To Best

Where does The Predator stand with his Alien brethren?

Fox

Two of Fox’s signature franchises seemed destined to intertwine and become linked as one series; both original instalments subverted their specific genres - Alien (1977) the horror movie, Predator (1986) the action movie. They also created landmark central creatures and took B-movie cliches and elevated them to A-list standards.

Dark Horse comics held publishing rights to both properties and after having massive success with each, decided to pit them together in a landmark 1989 mini-series. The response was so massive 20th Century Fox decided to throw an official nod to it in Predator 2 (1990) with the Alien skull sitting on the Predator's trophy mantel.

Certainly, its been a bumpy road for both franchises since their initial classic entries yet each movie has an enthusiast filmmaker behind it, attempting to stake out an individual stamp on the franchise - whether they tried and failed, there is still always a genuine pulse pumping in the film's vision - which is rare for two tentpoles studio franchises.

Staking out a clear-cut order for these films is a high-task, every fan has their own distinct assortment, even with what stands at number one. So this all comes down to a strong personal preference - although I'm sure everyone will agree with my bottom entry.
