With two cuts of each movie and over 60 hours of extras, this Blu-ray box set is the definitive edition of the legendary xenomorphic saga, with stunning HD transfers that finally give these seminal sci-fi classics the treatment they deserve. So, what are you waiting for? Secure that box set, Hudson!

Titles Comprise:

Alien: The terror begins when the crew of the spaceship Nostromo investigates a transmission from a desolate planet and makes a horrifying discovery, a life form that breeds within a human host. Now the crew must fight not only for its own survival, but for the survival of all mankind.

Aliens: Sigourney Weaver returns as Ripley, the only survivor from mankind's first encounter with the monstrous Alien. Her account of the Alien and the fate of her crew are received with skepticism, until the mysterious disappearance of colonists on LV-426 lead her to join a team of high-tech colonial marines sent in to investigate...

Alien 3: Lt. Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) is the lone survivor when her crippled spaceship crash lands on Fiorina 161, a bleak wasteland inhabited by former inmates of the planet's maximum security prison. Ripley's fears that an Alien was aboard her craft are confirmed when the mutilated bodies of ex-cons begin to mount. Without weapons or modern technology of any kind, Ripley must lead the men into battle against the terrifying creature. And soon she discovers a horrifying fact about her link with the Alien, a realisation that may compel Ripley to try destroying not only the horrific creature, but herself as well.

Alien Resurrection: Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) died fighting the perfect predator. Two hundred years and eight horrific experiments later, she's back. A group of scientists have cloned her, along with the alien queen inside her, hoping to breed the ultimate weapon. But the resurrected Ripley is full of surprises for her "creators", as are the aliens. And soon, a lot more than "all hell" breaks loose! To combat the creatures, Ripley must team up with a band of smugglers, including a mechanic named Call (Winona Ryder), who holds more than a few surprises of her own.

 PICTURE QUAILTY

| | See all Fender1976's reviews (78)

No need for me to review the films themselves!! whats the point?? people want to know one thing here! the picture quailty!! and yes, they have done a great job!! Alien has never looked better! very clean, sharp and full of detail! but for those who are worried about Aliens :) threre is no nasty over the top DNR! they cleaned it properly, you can still see grain but its so much better than any previous release! Aliens is clearer than ever! with all the detail! as for the sound, everything is better again, clear, boomy soundtracks that will please the fans. Should I mention the extras?? blimey, its good so much!! where would I begin? some of the highlights is screen tests of Weaver for Alien, the never seen Burke scene which to be honest, is ok, its pretty short. as for the rest, tons and tons of documentrys and the Alien 3 uncut making of!! yes, you get to see some heated comments from the director on set, Fox are Morons, classic

 No blu-ray in 1979. Surprisingly.

Lots of people keep banging on about the sound on Alien not being very good.
The reason alot of the dialogue in Alien is quiet is that Ridley Scott wanted to the films events to feel more plausible to the audience, he intended to play out the script in a way that made it feel more natural and almost akin to a documentary in its stylings. Often the characters argue and speak over each other, and lines are mumbled so you sometimes have to listen closely to what is said. This is both to show the strained relations of the crew on board, and to amp up a tangible sense of tension and dread which hangs over the film. All of this is intentional.

 In Space No One Can Hear You Scream. On Blu-Ray...We All Can

Well, here it is; this is sure to be one of the biggest Blu-Ray releases of the year. Recently, I have seen screenshots in 720p of these films, and I can tell you, if that's how good they look in 720p, it's looking very bright for the 1080p Blu-Ray releases. Now, I absolutely flat-out adore ALIEN. Ridley Scott's first step into Science-Fiction is perfect. The mythology was set up, introducing us to the Derelict Spacecraft, the Space Jockey, the Xenomorph Alien itself, and off course Ellen Ripley. I haven't nothing more to say other than, it is perfection. Now, ALIENS, is just that one step better. It takes all the best elements from the first film, and expands. Giving us action, that unlike most other action films, is not sensless and moves the story along. James Cameron's greatest film to date, is the perfect sequel of all time, and manages to expand on the rich mythology that Ridley Scott introduced to us. Now, ALIEN 3, which was directed by David Fincher is underwhelming, but by no means is it bad. The problems that the film has, is that Fox tooled about with the production too much, and that two great characters from the second film were killed off. Not to mention the awful digital Alien. However, the film works at times, enough to say that this film is worthy to be in this franchise. ALIEN RESURRECTION; I have nothing to say. I hate the film. Good casting. Bad everything else. I'm glad that this set did not include the awful Alien Vs. Predator movies (well, the first isn't bad). But, I can see another edition of this set coming out in 2012 or 2013, when Ridley Scott's two Alien Prequels are released.

I am extremely excited to get this set, and for Ridley Scott's prequels to be released. Not to mention the massive amount of Extras.

This is what Blu-Ray was made for. This is definitive, even if one of the films is awful.

Pre-Order this now!

Buy this now!

This is going to be amazing!

Top 10  Reviewer Top 10 DVD Reviewer

This is a class package, even if you have already bought the 2003 released DVD Quadrilogy this is well worth the money. ! the bonus features on this dics are outstanding with even more new features not featured in the DVD Quadrilogy. The picture quality for all four movies is the best they have ever looked and really brings out the dark shadows of Alien and the dim blue lighting of Aliens.
As for the movies......
ALIEN. (1979)
A ground breaking sci-fi horror clammy suspence the excellent acting, the start of Riply's nightmare and the greatest movie monster ever! a ground breaking classic !
*****
ALIENS (1986)
This has to be up the with The Empire Strikes Back and GodFather 2 as the best sequels ever. The tension is unbearable and the action is brilliant the movie is a long bumpy ride of terror, Ripley's character is the back bone of this franchise and the final pay-off with the Queen Alien is one of the most Jaw dropping in cinema history. One of the best movies ever made.
*****
ALIEN 3 (1992)
On cinema release this movie was hated by Alien fans. But watch this movie again and it just drip feeds you clammy terror of the first. Sure some of the characters are a bit underwritten and all having bald heads only adds to the confusion. But the feeling of impending doom is hard to shake off. The studio cut the hell out off this movie , but to see director's David ( seven, Fight Club ) Finchers Vision, watch the full version contained in this box-set and you will see what a under-rated classic this movie is.
This Blue Ray edition even manages the remaster the extended cut and fully irons out the sound quality to perfection.
****1/2
Alien Resurrection (1997)
This is by far the weakest of the saga, for me even worse than AVP and AVPR ! The thing about the Alien movies although being sci-fi they were all set very real future and acted with conviction. This is directed by a French guy who had no idea what the movies were all about. but the under water attack is still worth watching. He even messes up the Queen Alien by killing it off by it's hybrid offspring in pathetic fashion. As for the hybrid, I have seen scarier monsters on the Muppet Show ! and for the suprise ending ( oh the alien got on the ship...again ) just proves what lack of thought went into this movie.
As a stand alone movie it's not bad, but as the fouth chapter of this classic saga it's a dumbed down crushing disappointment!

This collection is what the Blue ray was made for, Three brilliant movies, and amazing bonus features.
