I have only actually seen the first 2 movies plus Prometheus. My family told me that the first 2 were the best, and I know nothing about Alien 3.
I found Prometheus to be incredibly similar to the first movie… perhaps too similar. For this reason I kind of struggle to be that excited for Prometheus 2. But I will watch it, and I am sure I will like it.
I have not read the books. I generally don't read books. I like to think it would be good for me to read more books, but I just like the idea.
Cool, I didn't expect you to have seen Prometheus. I usually hear people whine about it, but I think it was pretty good! You're family is right about 3 and 4. While Alien 3 is bearab– no I take it back, that one is bad too. But Resurrection is the worst movie I've ever seen. Alien or no, I wish it didn't exist. Alien 5 will, supposedly, be a new canon after Aliens. Rendering Alien 3 and Resurrection non-canon. For now I see the Aliens novels by Steve Perry as the true sequel to Aliens, even though (officially) they're non-canon.
And Handem, lets see your top-10!
