Alien bests Alien. Alien mops the floor with Blade Runner. Therefore, Aliens wins.
I prefer Alien to Aliens and Blade Runner is 1 spot ahead of that in my top 10.
I'm an Aliens kind of guy.
I love both of these but I have to go with Aliens.
I've never understood why Blade Runner ever achieved cult status. I thought it was OK but nothing special. Aliens, however, I get.
GET AWAY FROM HER YOU BITCH!!!!
Gotta love that quote.
Going with Aliens. So much fun.
Aliens is a great thriller. Blade Runner blows me away to this day.
Blade Runner is a great work of art. It's dark and disturbing and transports the viewer into a curious and trippy future for human kind. Setting aside how it's such a disrespectful bastardization of the source material, objectively speaking Blade Runner is just a beautiful film. However, Blade Runner doesn't quite do what it says on the tin. Comparatively, Aliens promises certain things on the outset and it delivers precisely what it claims. It's a powerful story that's not confusing and involves several characters which the audience understands implicitly and we care about what's going on. Comparing Ripley's maternal instinct to whatever it was that motivated Deckard to amble from scene to scene.. i still don't know why Deckard was hunting his bounties. He didn't seem to believe replicants were as dangerous to the future of mankind as Ripley felt the aliens were a threat to her Newt. I just noticed I have Ridley Scott's Alien way down on my list too. I guess I just prefer James Cameron's more direct approach to storytelling. At least with regards to his earlier films.
I concur with ZachsMind's excellent analysis. The refreshing straightforwardness of Aliens sets it far above the more muddled Blade Runner.
It's all about dat Blade Runner. I'm all about shit blowing up, and I love the hell out of Aliens (this one's close, believe me), but Roy Batty's the bee's knees, you guys. What a great movie, and what a great "villain". "Time to die." beats "Game over, man! Game over!" any day.
Blade Runner all the way/
