Predator 1 is fun but still overrated.

On its own, or against the rest of the franchise?

I watched it a few months ago and was surprised that trying to be an action movie castrated the horror and trying to be a horror movie kept it from being a truly satisfying balls out gun romp. It doesn't quite excel at anything, it just has an amazing creature design paired with peak Arnold.

Couldn't disagree more. It was a perfect marriage between the ultra gun romp movies and the space alien movies of that era - with the Alien making the macho super tough mercenaries want to cry for their mommies when the final **** hit the fan.

Wonder how much critical perception is altered when seeing something when it first hit the big screen, as to seeing it in hindsight.

Alien 2 and Predator are both unmatched in perfectly marrying the super confident human uber soldier and an alien creature - who bitch slaps the **** out of the supposed elite humans for the bulk of the movie.

I'd say Aliens is overrated as well but it still chestbursts Predator.

Starship Troopers > Aliens/Predator

Hmm... maybe, but if you remove the "s" from Aliens, it's another thing entirely.

I like Aliens, but James Cameron is overrated in general.

Aliens certainly doesn't hold a candle to Terminator 2.
