I'm sure it's great, but is the ninth disc worth replacing the three movies I already have?
I would be concerned about the Quad's packaging, as mine arrived damaged, with two of the disks scratched to hell. Also, the gatefold design may not be to your liking; it certainly wasn't mine. The ninth disk is nice to have, but hardly required, IMO, as most of the material is covered in the extras accompanying the film(s). :fire:
That kinda depends on how much you like the Alien films. If your a big fan you may want to consider it, otherwise you could just rent the set to see the ninth disc.
Thanks! That's what I wanted to know. I think I'll just buy the Alien: Resurrection CE and have someone burn me a copy of the ninth disc.
If anyone has a free minute or two, what are the featurettes on the ninth disc? Those are really the only reason I'd want the set basically.
Did I say Burn, I meant lend. :nervous:
The extended version of Alien 3 is more than enough reason to buy this set.
The extended version is on the Alien³ Collector's Edition too, so I don't need the set for that. And I agree, it is a much better film than the theatrical version.
honestly, just buy the single releases. As far as I know they are the same as what is included in the Box, and aside from the box being cheaper than buying every single release (???I think) There really is no point, because the box is a complete peice of crap, as Gerbil said they are made of poor quality cardboard that bends and dents REALLY easy, also has those plastic disc holders that are glued in, and almost ALL of them were loose on mine. Not to mention the whole thing folds out to be over a meter long, so if you just want 1 disc, you'd have to lay it on the floor and open the whole thing or something. I just put all the disc's in separate gem cases so I never have to deal with or look at the thing...
You could try to pick up the very expensive japanese edition of the boxset:
It comes housed in an alien head that holds all the dvds
I'd love to have that Japanese edition but definitely don't want to pay for it.
Alien Evolution doc (64 min.)
Experience in Terror 1979 promo feturette (7 min.)
Ridley Scott Q and A (15min)
SE laserdisc archive (literaly, all the text/video content from the laserdisc! Most is covered in other features, but some is different/new)
Trailer and teaser and 2 tv spots
SE laserdisc archive (like Alien, everything from ld)
Trailers, teasers and tv spots from theater/domestic/international
Advance featurette (3min)
7 tv spots
4 tv spots
Most stuff is covered on the movie's discs, but some stuff is new and cool. I like the ld archives. Definitly worth a look if you end up getting the box or a dub.
That looks so awesome , that will be around $600 Dollars U.S / Canadian no thanks .
Thanks a lot bigdaddyhorse! That does sound like some cool stuff to have.
seems like I found it on DeepDiscount DVD for like $53, but that was right when it came out...
I recently got this set and is amazing, I recommend it to everyone.
yes...and now if a certain film maker who's series of sci-fi films are released through 20th Century Fox could take a cue from the quadrilogy and see that original and updated versions of films can fit on the same disc....
Indeed Deus, couldnt agree more. The Quadrilogy Box has set the standard and anything less is just cheap & lazy. I wont be getting that SW box set anytime soon.
I watched the documentary on the biography channel and it aint all that. 2 hrs for 3 movies! Quadrilogy has about 3 hrs for each movie!
