Total droolage!

When I went to see Cabin Fever, there was a preview for a theatrical re-release of the almighty Alien...including the incorporation of deleted scenes, one of which seemed to involve one of the ship members in a cocoon

call me critical, but it would be nice to hear james cameron's commentary and david fincher's especially, seeing how alien 3 was his first film. ah well, it pretty much has every other thing you could think of...

Pretty cool, but personally I don't think the last two are good enough to own. They were only so-so.

Actually I thought the 4th one was pretty good, 3 was the stinker and 2 was better than 1 but 1 kicked ass.

On thing is for certain: I must have it!

They didn't mention it, so I'm wondering, will the Aliens DVD be the Special Edition with all the extra scenes or just the theatrical cut? One of the features in the Aliens set is a James Cameron intro to the "Extended Version."

Just wondering. It'd be dumb if it isn't the Special Edition, seeing how they stopped manufacturing the DVD.

Aliens is hands-down my all time favorite movie, and I don't think anything will ever come close to it imo, although T2 is up there.

I wish they'd just drop Weaver though, the series isn't about her; should have let her character stay dead in Alien3. Just read that they're trying to get her on for the next movie... <barf>

it's suppose to have both cuts of the movie.

I only saw the long version once, and I'm not sure if it really added to the movie at all

that reminds me, I still have yet to see the long version of The Abyss

Ah, coolness. Having the option to play one or the other is nice. More than likely, I'll never play the theatrical cut... but the option is nice to have, no? :D

The extended Special Edition adds, if anything, a whole bunch more exposition. Personally, I feel the additions help the movie, rather than burden it (the reasoning, which got the scenes cut from theaters and initial video releases). The extended version mentions the death of Ripley's daughter, making her 57 years of hypersleep a little more than just a plot device and an excuse for higher-tech; the company's verdict is supplemented with their findings and reasoning; we find out how the aliens make it to the colony in the first place and see Newt's family unit, plus we get to see a small glimpse of colony life; we see more of the marines and the Sulaco, as well as the alien life-cycle explained. There's more than that, too.

Above all, though, THE SENTRY GUNS!

I got the Alien 4-disc box set for Christmas last year. Great stuff. I would never buy something as expansive as the 9 disc set though...

My general rule of thumb is that if the special features take longer to peruse than the movie takes to watch, its just filler. That and c'mon, its Aliens, not Citizen Kane. How great can the commentary be...
