Disambiguation or, "puttin' stuff in (parentheses)"

Here's Wikipedia's overly technical description. Just consider what they call the "Primary source". How likely is the primary source to be confused with other sources (books, comics, characters)? Look at it this way, when you're having a conversation with someone about "Aliens", "Predators", or even just "Alien", or "Predator", there's a good chance you might have to clarify whether you mean the movies, the creatures from the movies, or the creeps you saw on Chris Hansen's show. And no one would blame you for mixing your "Alien vs. Predator" with your "Aliens vs. Predator". On the other hand, Alien 3, Predator 2, Alien Resurrection, and Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (sheesh!) sound an awful lot like movie titles. Only spin-offs from these primary sources require disambigs, things like: Predator 2 (novel), Alien 3 (comic), or Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (commemorative home pregnancy test). So unless the next movie, comic, etc. features a character named "Alien 3" fighting a character named "Predator 2" (hmm... fanfic idea?), my feeling is we should try to avoid disambigs in article titles unless absolutely necessary.
