Check out the commentary line-up.
The first DVD they release should be the WHOLE film as the director intended it, including any and all bits they cut for the cinema.
But of course as long as muppets keep forking out for original, special edition, extended edition and directors cut discs, they'll keep churning them out and fleecing people.
it's a crock of sh. and it shouldn't be allowed.
I couldn't give a monkeys about commentaries or documentaries, but I want the WHOLE film
Then they release the Quadrilogy set with still more footage and extras.
Can you say "milking it"?
I'm a fan of the films, but I'm not a *complete* idiot. I refuse to buy any more Alien discs. Most extras/commentaries are only watched/listened to once anyway.
I don't have an R1 player (yes, mock me - hell, I actually have to use my PS2 in my room to watch DVDs, the R2 only player downstairs barely gets touched since my parents are in there watching TV all the time) and although I plan on getting one, it may take a while (got myself a job which starts in January, but I have other stuff to buy first)
What happened to the talks of a 5th film, where the aliens got into a city?
I don't know what I'd do without my R1 DVD player. I'd probably still be watching 6 year old movies like Titanic like the rest of you Victorian bummers.
