Almost as if they were made by two different directors. Alien seems more indicative of Scott's talent. And Blade Runner? Eh. No. Just no.
Alien was awesome. Not impressed with Blade Runner.
I didn't get Blade Runner. Been wanting to try it again for a while, but I'm just kind of "meh" about it. And Charyou_Tree is right; these two movies really speak to the talent that Ridley Scott has. Or, at least, had. Amazing that these movies were only three years apart from each other...and three decades ago, to boot.
I love Blade Runner, but primarily for its perfectly unique look and feel. Never has a futuristic world seemed so simultaneously believable and so foreign. However, Alien is easily superior, a film also daringly unique in its look and also far more terrifying than any other creature feature.
Blade Runner (directors cut) is better than the original, so Alien
This one is so tough. Blade runner has the setting to beat all others, but Alien has the pure horror. Considering Alien never hit me THAT hard. Blade Runner it is.
alien vs blade runner. you gotta be kidding me!!!!!
The battle between Ridley Scott's two greatest movies. Well, i choose Blade Runner, mostly because it's my favorite movie :)
Two Scott masterpieces, Im afraid Blade Runner wins it out
Blade Runner has less of a blockbuster feel and more of the tone of a story striving for greatness and achieves it even after Star Wars was released five years prior.
Alien failed to truly delve into what a science fiction movie can do. Blade Runner defined an unmatched bar that has yet to be challenged. Blade Runner it is.
That Alien and Blade Runner are both directed by the same man is amazing. Ridley Scott blew the doors off of the sci-fi genre with these films. Alien is completely out of this world, but it clearly borrows from the old haunted house movies of the past. Blade Runner's interpretation of L.A circa 2019 is uber-futuristic but undeniably film-noir. They are both cinema titans and this is a true battle. Blade Runer is the more challenging film. It asks more questions and really asks the audience to participate in its story. By contrast, Alien does not give its audience a choice. It hits a very visceral chord and is relentless in its pursuit to terrify. With all that said, it does not stop there. It's a true work of art, too! H.R. Geiger's design of the alien creature is a horrifying manisfestation and the interiors of the Nostromo are some of the most claustrophobic sets ever constructed. If I have to pick one I'll go with Alien, but Blade Runner is in no way an inferior movie.
Alien is scarier than hell. It's a scientific haunted house. Blade Runner is insanely entertaining and has great performances all around but it isn't quite as memorable as Alien. It's awesome that they are both directed by Scott!
Blade Runner is the more intelligent film.Plus,it's more rewatchable.
Alien is certainly the leaner, more visceral film. Blade Runner is more contemplative and intellectual -- and yes, it does drag in a couple places. The design of both films is stunning, but I think I prefer Blade Runner in terms of visuals too. It's just so freakin' gorgeous. For me, this match-up ultimately comes down to genre preferences. Both Alien and Blade Runner are sci-fi reincarnations of other popular Hollywood genres, Alien of the haunted house film, Blade Runner of the film noir. And I'll take a noir any day. So, Blade Runner.
I plan on giving Blade Runner a rewatch...but right now, it doesn't compete with Alien.
Blade Runner, i love both, both are in my top 5 sci-fi movies but BR is in my top 5 movies. Blade Runner has more to say about humanity and the world and is a more important film. But both are great movies.
Alien is great, but it doesn't leave me with the feeling of awe that Blade Runner does.
Blade Runner definitely.
