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.
