This is a good DVD cover

Alien vs Predator cast publicity shot.
The problem is, except for the possible exception of Charles Weyland (and, sure, the hot chick), I don’t care about any of these people. This was a major fault of both this film and its sequel. There’s no drama when I don’t give a crap if everyone dies.
This would be a cooler image if it were just all the aliens and predators posing for the cast shot.

Alien is the best in terms of genre-influencing originality in set & costume design and script. Aliens is the best in terms of fun action and expanding the mythos. Resurrection met my expectations; it is interesting, but nothing mind-blowing (but I hate the newborn). It does the best job of exploring the evil of the franchise’s main villain, The Company, albeit in a somewhat melodramatic way.
Alien3 is the only movie that I would say disappointed me, in that it seemed to fall short of its potential. I wish it had more positive continuity with Aliens, and had developed the mythos more.
I won’t even comment on AVP and AVP:R; they’re like the new Star Trek movie in that they are just regular action flicks that attempt to bring in extra box-office dollars by utilizing characters that have an existing fan-base, but other than that have no relation to the franchise. Still, they have aliens and predators and so I watch them!
Thanks for the question!
