AH! THE IRONY!
It is TOTALLY ironic. Neither of these films' makers had any notion that their monsters would eventually be in the same movie together.
Arny nearly got his ass handed to him by one predator. Ripley straight flushed that alien out the air lock then dished out quite the damage to the rest of race for 3 more movies. Not to mention that Alien of the greatest movies of all time.
"Alien". I mean, when "Predator" was sold as "ALIEN meets RAMBO" you had to expect a film less entertaining than either. "Predator" is great fun, but "Alien" wins. Better in every way, including a better monster.
Giving it to Alien. Sowwy.
Alien. One of the best sci-fi movies of all time.
Oh man, what a match up. Has to go to Alien though
Predator is good Sci-Fi but Ridley Scott's vision is just wider then most in the movie business.
Predator is a textbook Hollywood action movie, but Alien means more to me I'm afraid.
I am clearly of the minority that didn't respect Predator at all as a piece of film. Alien=BEAST.
had to take a walk around the block to clear my head and try and sort this one out...
Alien is a much better film. From the strong female action lead to the groundbreaking creature effects to Ridley Scott's uncompromising vision and the sheer terror the film creates, it far surpasses Predator which is just an action movie.
I enjoyed Predator, but just as another Arnie flick.
Major, you'd better take a look at this.
Alien is scarier while Predator is more fun and has some good lines. Alien does hold up better overall, though.
I'll take the alien that actually looks scary.
Both are awesome. Alien has to be the winner though, more influential, better acting and an overall better movie.
I love Predator, but yes, I too have to go with Alien on this one. With me, it's close, though. Aliens vs. Predator? Fuhgeddaboutit. Meanwhile, @Protozoid: I would argue that Predator is far more entertaining than any Rambo movie.
Hate to be the voice of dissent here, but I can't think of anything that I liked about Predator. Everything from Arnold down to the dialogue was weak and cheesy. There's nothing cheesy about Alien, though.
"Predator" is a big dumb 80s action flick with a cool sci-fi-horror center featuring one of the best villains/monsters of all time. But "Alien" is one of the best horror films ever made. Easy win.
Predator is good but Alien is classic.
One of the toughest match-ups considering my love for both. Could watch Predator anytime unlike ALIEN, but ALIEN is the better film... and in my top 10. That and its influence on Predator make it the winner.
Alien!!!!! no contest
Alien is probably the better movie, but I can rewatch Predator a bazillion times. Arnold at his cheesy best.
Alien is a better movie but Predator is more entertaining.
I love Alien but Predator is just too much.
Yeesh, a tough one. A very tough one. I'm not a fan of either film. Alien is easily the better movie, but it can also be quite boring and I hate the 'fake' jumpscares (with the cat, for example). Predator on the other hand is not boring in the slightest and can be fun at times, but as a movie it's lacking. The pacing is bad, the dialogue is mediocre, some of the characters seem pointless and it all feels too generic. However, despite these very obvious flaws, I surprisingly enjoy Predator a little more. That has probably to do with the fact that Alien left me mostly cold, while Predator did not. It's close and my feelings could change in the near future, but Predator wins.
Alien is suffocatingly atmospheric and full of interesting gender motifs, Predator is a dumbass action movie.
Predator wins by a landslide. It has aged remarkably well and continues to prove that Arnold Schwarzenegger's cheesy action films are still intact to this very day.
Both have aged astonishingly well, but the Yatuja is a more memorable hunter than the Xenomorph.
I used to like Predator more, but I rewatched Alien and it just gets better every time and it wins this matchup.
I think Predator is easily more rewatchable, yet I like Alien better, I love the atmosphere and the constant tense feeling it gives you. It is acted better and has a better script. Personally I like the xenomorph better in creature matchups as well. It is just so visceral, I really don't think there has ever been a better creature created.
Alien is too tedious to really get in to. Predator is a film from the get-go with cheesy comedy and quotability up to its neck.
I ain't got time to bleed....
Predator wins here if you ask me . Aliens would probably beat predator . the first Alien movie is a little bit Boring whereas predator is a fun action flick ! I know it s a classic , a masterpiece ! But i dont care...p
Wow, this is an unique showdown. Someone should make a film about this, it's bound to be brilliant! Alien wins.

Alien. Predator should never have gotten involved with the franchise; I'm not saying the Alien series wasn't already ruined with Alien Resurrection (and I refuse to afford Alien3 the same description for actually having the balls to do something other than gung-ho action for a change), but throwing Predator into the Alien franchise was just adding insult to injury. Fuck you Fox and Stephen Hopkins! Anyway, back to the match-up in hand. Predator use to be a fun film, but it has a) dated too badly to be taken seriously any more, and b) doesn't do anything other than reaffirm Stan Winston's status as one of the eternal gods of special effects. To say that it's a stupid film doesn't really cut it; it was always a stupid film, but at least it used to be a fun way to kill a couple of hours. Now I just think that it's pretty dull, a sign of growing up and moving on I guess. I cannot say the same about Alien.
