Obviously, the original "Alien" as well as the sequel "Aliens". But as for the rest of the series, I thought the rest sucked, especially including both alien vs. predator movies.

John Carpenter's "The Thing" was great. Still one of my all-time favorites.

John Carpenter's "They Live" another great one.

Predator 1 & 2 were very good.

Starship Troopers. Awesome movie. The sequels... not so much.

The Abyss

Dark City

Virus.

Cloverfield (Yes, I actually liked it)

The Critters series. Anybody remember those?

The Guyver series was always somewhat interesting. Strange. But interesting.

Would Event Horizon count as an alien movie? Either way, it's great.

And would you also consider the "Tremors" series as alien movies? I loved them too.

This is going to sound a little like an echo but Alien, Aliens, and the Thing all in close contention for me.

LOL Critters. I just watched them all about two years ago. I almost forgot how cheesy those films were. However, I remember the first one scaring the crap out of me when I was a kid. I even had this crazy reoccurring nightmare where I was running down a street near my grandmother's house (don't ask why, it is a dream afterall) and I was being chased by their spaceship as it was sucking up everything in its path to get to me...crazy.

Anyhow, on to my favorite alien movies:

I have to go with the entire Alien quadrilogy,

Predator 1 & 2,

John Carpenter's The Thing,

The Last Starfighter,

Stephen King's Dreamcatcher,

Signs,

Species,

Pitch Black,

Enemy Mine,

Prey,

Krull,

Village of the Damned (remake)

I am sure that there are others out there, but those are all that I can think of ATM.

I loved that part in Critters 2 where they formed a giant ball and rolled over running townsfolk. Then a skeleton would be all that was left. That, and the easter bunny with critters in his pants. Hilarious.

my favorite is Aliens. that movie is still a classic today. good acting, script was perfect(just like the first), everything was top notch. i love the lines, every single one of them.
