Confession time...I've never seen a single Aliens movie
With that said, what should I do, I've fairly certain I'd enjoy them, so should I look at picking up the full set in December or wait until January and only get whichever one is "best"?
Well, I would probably say that the first two are essential to having a good movie collection. However, a lot of folks hate the last two just as much as they love the first two. If I were you, I would wait until January, and buy the first two seperately for the forty bucks or so, as opposed to dropping seventy on the box. Or, you could rent them (the 1999 discs) all now, watch them, and if you like the last two, you could spring for the box next month.
Me, I've seen the first three (still haven't seen Resurrection
yet), but because I'm a total sucker for stuff like it, I'll be picking up the box next month. I have no doubts that the first two are going to be amazing, and I'm interested to see what they are going to do with Alien3
Another option would be to pick up the 1999 discs on Ebay or something on the cheap, because surely people will be dumping their old ones in favor of the new ones. However, all of the reviews I've read so far are saying that the new discs kick the crap out of the old ones, in terms of, well, everything.
And on another note, I miss you Virex, but not in a gay way.
Well maybe a little bit
Well, thanks. I miss you too, but only
in a gay way. Odd, that, since I'm not homosexual.
Not that there's anything wrong with that.
