Background Information:

Alien vs. Predator, or Aliens versus Predator (both titles abbreviated AvP), is a science fiction franchise series that spans several media such as comics from Dark Horse Comics and a video game series. The series is about famous film franchises about extraterrestrial beings with the Alien and Predators fighting each other face to face. The canon is a bit confused and the topic poster should usually specify which version they're using. It been mention that the AVP movies are canon to the main series and that comics, novels and video games take place in their own continuity. So far there are eight movies in the series which are:
1. Alien (1979): The first movie in the Alien series and it was directed by Ridley Scott. It was the movie that started it all with the famous tag line "In space no one can hear you scream. ". People agreed it to be one of the best horror movies ever made.

2. Aliens (1986): The second Alien movie and it was directed by James Cameron (The director of the first two Terminator movies) and generally considered to be the best in the series.

3. Predator (1987): The first movie in the Predator series starring Arnold Schwarzenegger which was directed by John Mctiernan and also considered to be one the best action movies ever made.

4. Predator 2 (1990): The second movie in the Predator movie series. This sequel takes place in LA then a large jungle like the first movie did. Not great, but it was very entertaining movie neverless.

5. Alien 3 (1992): The 3rd movie in the Alien series and it was directed by David Fincher. The movie got a lot of mixed reviews but many people argeed that movie is undderated and the Assembly Cut with over 30 minutes made the movie have a better entertainment value and considered to be a much better then the original cut.

6. Alien Resurrection (1997): The 4th movie in the Alien series and is considered to be the worst in the series...that is until #8 came out. Other than the bad camera angles, the concept of Alien cloning, and the addition of comedy that the movie has, it is pretty decent comparison to the AVP movies.

7. Alien vs. Predator (2004): The first AVP movie and the first movie to have both Aliens and Predators to fight each other on the Big Screen. The movie is not too good at all and it's pretty much a waste of an hour and 45 minutes of flim. It is better then it's sequel which is not saying much.

8. Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (2007): Crap. Horrible, terrible crap. The movie was so dark that it makes it hard to see a damn thing, and the acting and the stroy for the movie was bad also. It did give us more Alien and Predator action than the first movie did though.

There is a Predator sequel and a Alien prequel in the works at the moment.

Standing in the Battledome:

In the OBD the series is a low tier Science Fiction series compare to Star Wars, Warhammer 40,000, and Xeelee. The Predators can be a strong race depending on how much skill each Predator has. They also have high tech weapons. The Xeno race can be deadly with their acid blood and their tails that can cut off a small amount of steel. Overall though, it's a weak series compared to others seen in the OBD.
