  • The THX audio improves the bass of the films at the cost of the talking which doesn't appear as loud as it should be in places

      Here we have the four-disc Alien Anthology on Blu-ray. Being a huge Aliens fan myself i was really excited about this release but was a little concerned about what new features it would have to offer over the previous 9 disc DVD release Alien Quadrilogy. Being larger capacity discs the Blu-ray release only uses

      four discs. There are two versions of the film on each disc. The original theatrical release and the directors cut version.

      Positives: Each film is represented in Blu-ray quality.

      The Audio for each film has been re-mastered in THX sound.

      Each disc contains director introductions, theatrical scores from the composers, deleted and extended scenes.

      Negatives: With these films being old and not being filmed in high definition they still remain a little grainy despite being converted to Blu-ray.

      The THX audio improves the bass of the films at the cost of the talking which doesn’t appear as loud as it should be in places.

      Not as much extra content as ...

      its DVD cousin Alien Quadrilogy.

      For people who aren’t obsessed with tons of extra features and many discs. With two versions of each film to a disc and extras, there is no reason to be changing discs for each version of the film. Once you’ve chosen a film there’s plenty on the disc to keep

      you going but don’t expect a full high-definition version of any of the films. When compared to newer Sci-fi flicks like Prometheus these films are showing their age now.

      Overall a quality release but exploiting the aliens series is getting a little tired now with multiple releases of all four films already out. Suitable for die hard Aliens fans and Blu-ray enthusiasts only.
