i can't wait to get that alien box set. although from what i've seen so far, it's only available as a fullscreen version? if that's the case, then the hell with it. i have the legacy box set, and i'm definitely a widescreen kinda guy.

It's in widescreen, and only in widescreen, as far as I know.  Fox would be crazy to release something like that pan-and-scan only.

Speaking of which, Amazon's got it for $69.99 with free shipping right now, which is the best price that I know of. . .

aqua teen hunger force (which wasn't listed on your, uhmm... list)

Yeah, it's not on the list.  Coming out next week, I believe, but not on the list.  C'est la vie. . .

I'd be up for that.
How shall we go about it?

Easy - post your GamerTag, and the Live games that you play/own.

I'm Virex10, and have Unreal Tournament and Ghost Recon, but I'm never on.   8)

Too late--I've changed my mind.  I won't post his pic anymore, but I think I'm going to put that pic in my avatar, so you'll have to see it every time I post, from now on. . .

(Love the updated sig, by the way. . .)   :D

Oh, and here it is again, since we're on a new page now:

Red-headed hotties:

Nicole Kidman

Angie Everhart

Carrot Top

Gives me an idea:

I'm going to put that ugly-ass picture of Carrot Top on every new page of this thread until someone says something--I don't care what--about it.

I just want someone to say something--anything--about my Carrot Top joke above.

I went to too much trouble finding decent pictures of the other two redheads, to have that joke go by like a fart in the wind, with no commentary. . .

Yeah, so the other night, I fell asleep listening to a Radiohead MP3 disc--something like six hours' worth--and one of the dreams I had involved me, wearing only a bath towel, eating dinner in a really fancy restaurant in Venice, Italy, while everybody else was dressed in tuxedos and expensive dresses.  I ordered some tacos, because they were the cheapest, but then didn't have any money, so Dad wound up paying for it.  

Now, whether or not the Radiohead playing in the background had anything to do with that dream, I'll never know.

So, watch what you listen to before you fall asleep, kids. . .

Okay, gang - The Digital Bits has just started posting their review of the Quadrilogy set.

So far, they've reviewed the first two discs - Alien and the Alien extras disc:

Looks like they're going to stagger out their reviews of the rest of the set, in the hours/days to come--their site has been really busy today, for obvious reasons.

Amazing stuff. . .

30 second snippets of all of the songs are here for the Pearl Jam Lost Dogs CD...

Eh...I guess there is a reason a lot of these songs were not on the regular CD's.  Some of the stuff is cool but some of it needs to grow on me a bit :-*

Heard they took "Angel" off the set--and what's worse, they didn't put anything else in it's place.  Too bad--that was a cool song, and one of the only nine or so songs that I was familiar with before.

Eh, record companies suck.

Anyway, I've been listening to a little of Sarah McLachlan's Surfacing today, along with Van Morrison's Astral Weeks and Moondance a little earlier.

Good stuff, all around. . .

Pearl Jam fans can see a trailer of the Live at the Garden DVD here

(checking the link)

Oh, so that's what the deal is with the two covers--one's a slipcase!  In a thread about the DVD over at DVD Talk, people were confused as to which was the official cover.  That's cool.

Should be a nice set. . .

From USA Today:

Get a box of 'Alien' films on DVD

By Mike Snider, USA TODAY

The Alien invasion will go beyond theaters when a monstrous nine-disc Alien Quadrilogy box set arrives Dec. 2.
Over the weekend, Alien returned to theaters on 347 screens, bringing in a modest $1.04 million. The re-release was designed to draw attention to next month's DVD release of the original movie that made Sigourney Weaver a star in 1979, plus its three sequels.

The $99.98 set includes versions of the four Alien films not yet seen on home video:

•Alien can be watched in the original version or the new director's cut now playing in theaters.

• The 1986 sequel, Aliens, is available on DVD for the first time, with director James Cameron's special edition as well.

• Alien 3 (1992) has more than 30 minutes of new footage.

•Alien Resurrection (1997) has alternate opening and ending scenes.

Each movie also has its own accompanying disc of extras, and the ninth disc has a new interview with Alien director Ridley Scott. Scott and Weaver, who starred in all four films, also take part in a new commentary on the film.

One creature feature sure to pique fan interest: A multi-angle study of the "chest-buster scene," in which a hatched alien emerges from the stomach of Kane (John Hurt).

"Some of the background anecdotes and information about the shoot and setup — particularly (actress) Veronica Cartwright's reflection on the shock of getting soaked in jets of blood — are the type of thing that really sets DVD apart as an entertainment format," says Peter Staddon, senior vice president of marketing for Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

In total, the Alien Quadrilogy set has about 45 hours of previously unseen material. On Jan. 6, the films will be available individually on DVD for $26.98 each.

Anyone catch that last part?

Now--I'm a sucker for the box-set-type stuff, so I'll still definitely be getting the Quadrilogy, but that's great news for those people who only wanted to get the first one and/or two.

And--what great, if not devious, marketing that is.  Release the box before Christmas, and then release them all separately afterward.  That's funny.

More later. . .

Big news today from The Digital Bits - apparently, Fox is getting set to announce the Alien Quadrilogy set for a December 2nd release.

Looks like everything's been ready to go for a while; they just wanted to wait until Alien was theatrically re-released before they announced the DVD set.

Anyway--I'll go ahead and update the list now.

Speaking of which--do any of you guys bother to check the list on the first page anymore?  Or do you just check the latest posts in the thread?

Just curious. . .

How about a little Resident Evil?  The multi-talented Milla Jovovich, anyone?
