Given the release of the new movie, it made me wonder how the series has had a few hits and misses. I think it all boils down to ones own personal tastes or if you’re a real cult follower.

Number one for me has to be Predator 1. With its cheesy punch lines, super-bro action and dark atmosphere. It made the Predator feel mysterious but menacing. Even though the animations for him can be pretty bland and lacklustre. It’s still a 9/10 for me.

The last two in my top 3 are as follows:

2. Predator 2. With its awesome now retro vibe and again keeping with the Menacing and mysterious atmosphere.

3. Alien vs Predator 1. Seeing both the xenomorph and the alien battle is just so badass and for a fanboy of both series this is just amazing to me.

What about you? What is your personal top 3 in the Predator series?

For me, my list goes as follows:

1st: PREDATOR - Nothing beats the original.

2nd: PREDATOR 2 - Maintained proper atmosphere, plotline and introduced new mythology.

3rd: THE PREDATOR - Despite some faults, felt more like a Predator film than PREDATORS and both AvP films. The Predator was still a bag guy and the creature effects were far better than the Preds seen in AvP and AvPR. Also - no Adrian Brody, which was a definite plus. I personally, preferred the cast and pacing and effects of THE PREDATOR to PREDATORS, placing it in my top 3 and third spot.

Hyped for: Alien: Romulus | Badlands (Predator 6) | Cloverfield 4

My top 3? Here goes...

#1 Predator - Take a small group, put 'em in an inescapable environment, and have 'em killed off one-by-one by an unseen force... It's basically Alien but in a jungle.

#2 Predator 2 - Needlessly louder, bloodier and much more foul-mouthed than its predecessor, with some strange casting choices, but somehow it all works.

#3 Predators - The premise started off well, and the casting was well suited, especially with Danny Trejo and Laurence Fishburne, and it added so much more to the mythology (hunting planets, inter-clan rivalries), it's just a shame it got too referential towards the end.

Sorry Chris, gotta disagree with you here, recycling may be good for the environment, but it ain't when it comes to movies, especially when its just rehashing ideas that didn't stick the first time around. Still Sterling Brown should win awards for both his performance (seems to be the only actor that wanted to be there) and for the dumbest death committed to film. IMO AvP:R is now the second worst Predator movie.

The franchise ends there for me.

Predator rules. 2 and Predators weren't very good. The Predator was decent. AVP was better than 2 and 3 IMO.

Not seen The Predator Yet!

Predator has to be Number 1 a Great Movie!

Then has to be Predator 2 which i thought was ok, but not really Great...

Predators and AVP are about similar to me.... but considering Canon, i would place Predators at Number 3.

Not seen The Predator Yet still.... cant be as bad as AVPR?

Not as bad, but not much better, kids can watch it too. Disney friendly.

After further review, I would rank:

1. Predator

2. Predator 2

3. AVP

The others are movies I will likely never watch again- utterly forgettable except for taunting/heckling purposes.
