I personally think the original theatrical cut is better but that is just me! Love your irony goat boy! It is worth buying certainly but I would get my arm cut off if we saw the same sort of package released by Fox of the Star Wars trilogy. Isn't the Star Wars Celebration this weekend? I am not holding my breath waiting to see if they announce something special!

I am looking forward to this multi-version release, and especially the new "Final Cut" version.  I relish the thought of the ADDITIONAL and EXTENDED scenes, but personally hope that Ridley DOESN'T also CUT or SHORTEN certain scenes...  I wanted MORE, not less in his "ALIEN:DIRECTOR'S CUT", and was sorely disappointed at how little more I actually got!  As well as CUTTING some of my well loved original footage OUT, I ended up yearning for some of the fantastic UNUSED effects and footage that was shown in the extras of the "Alien Quadrilogy" boxset.  There were some wonderful "Nostromo in orbit near planet" and full side-on "Shuttlecraft" travelling shots, as well as excellently moody footage of "Kane's helmet with "facehugger" attached", for instance, that could have easily been inserted, and which would have made such a difference to the edit.  I was also disappointed at the final "s.o.s./warning" message unfrightening sound effect used in a new scene, whereas the same scene has been around as a DVD extra before, but has a VERY atmosperic, creepy, and disturbing sound effect.  Go figure.  Also, the colour-timing is strange, and TOO dark compared to the rich Original, just as the STAR WARS Remastered is overall!  I will stick to my original ALIEN dvd any day.  Anyway, I just wanted to say I was sorely disappointed with these "creative decisions", and hope that "BLADERUNNER" will prove different...

Don't think that is going to happen since this R1 5-disc release with the suitcase is LIMITED and NUMBERED

Hmmm...as I feared, although there has been some nice little touches added, there has not been as much added ( and is available ) as I'd hoped for, and some scenes have indeed been actually 'trimmed' a little, as Ridley did with his disappointing 'Alien:Director's Cut'.  

But the worst thing of all...he's neutered the "...I want more life, fu**er..." line to "...I want more life, father..."  

AAARGH!

I've just looked at another site and it would appear that UK R2 isn't getting the 5 discer on any HD format. Whether that's confirmed or not I don't know. It seems a bit odd. Maybe we're just waiting for another press release. Can't say I'm too bothered as my line of thinking was that I'd get the 5 discer on DVD and the Final Cut on BD as an addition. With all the supplemental content it makes more sense for me to have the set on DVD so I can watch them at work as well. When I'm not working I hasten to add.

I think there's value to the Dirctors cut of Alien. It has a different focus in some scenes. The Lambert/Ripley slap was a great addition although I have to agree that the Dallas cocoon scenes messes with the biology if you take Cameron's vview as cannon. Which I do. Still the 2 cuts are interesting and I'd rather they were 'out there' than not.





Have to wait on the F**ker vs Father neutering issue. Although F**ker is more shocking a statement, Father carries with it far more resonance for Batty as Tyrell is indeed his Father for all intents and purposes.

I'm of the same opinion. A friend and I actually had an interesting conversation a few years back about 1) what was actually said and 2) which is a better statement from the character's perspective.
