A SciFi Must Have that Blows the Socks off the 20th Anniversary Set in Added Discs,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Alien Anthology and Prometheus Bundle [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
The ALIEN trilogy has always been an absolute favorite of mine (RESURRECTION less so), having owned VHS copies, then DVD copies, then the ALIEN LEGACY 20th Anniversary box set, and now a Blu-Ray upgrade with tons of extra crunchy bits that bury my old set? Heck ya! I recently reduced my DVD collection by a staggering amount, only keeping certain ones that I just couldn't be without, and my ALIEN LEGACY set being one of those chosen few.
I compared what my 20th Anniversary set offered vs this Blu-Ray set, and although the Blu-Ray pretty much copies all the Anniversary extra features on the movie discs themselves, there is a slew of documentaries added between Disc 5 and 6. And don't forget the sleek Blu-Ray menu atmospherics!
The PROMETHUS Blu-Ray is a mere cherry on top. When it comes to setting the Golden Standard for SciFi adventures, Ridley Scott was one of the Visionaries, and these movies strongly influenced the very foundations of the genre... although, once again, RESURRECTION less so, but still a fun watch (it has some rather entertaining supporting performances).
Guess I will give my now defunct box set to my younger brothers. They should see where all the Alien vs Predator games originated from anyways. For myself, now I really am looking forward to my big HDTV upgrade next month.
Side note, this is described as a "Bundle" set, not "Box", so what you receive is the ALIEN ANTHOLOGY in a nice, glossy, shimmering graphic sleeve-box shrinked wrapped with the individual PROMETHUS Blu-Ray.
