Strange as from what i have read the transfers are fantastic, Here is a direct quote from digitalbits about the quality.

"And for those of you who may have worried that any of the films will suffer the same DNR-ed fate as the recent Predator Blu-ray, I've heard from multiple sources directly involved now that such fears are unnecessary. All four films have been given brand new HD transfers and the masters reportedly look fantastic. In fact, we've been told that when James Cameron viewed and approved the new Aliens master (Aliens being the most troublesome looking film of the series in the past quality-wise), he was VERY pleased with the results. We'll have more on this set in the days and weeks ahead."

Where did you read about the transfer's being rubbish ?

After the recent fiasco release of Predator, Ultimate DNR Edtion, I think it would be wise to hold off on pre-orders.

Its a tarp! New Alien prequel is in development, if you only want the *complete* stuff, then hold out! But for what is here, awesome price IMO! Vote hot.

Or hold off until they release the Blu Ray films seperately and only get the Ridley Scotts Alien prequel and Alien, and erase the other films from memory.

Aliens was the best movie imo followed by Alien and 3&4.

Just found the Collecters Set for £79.99 + 5% Quidco on HMV's site.Anyone seen a better deal?

I never get cashback from HMV, always tracks as £0.00 and then never changes.

Voted hot :) Ignore the comments re DNR, these discs haven't even been previewed yet but according to thedigitalbits.com from their sources, they've taken brand new masters and they look great!

Aliens was the best movie imo followed by Alien and 3&4.


If you like James Cameron's usual array of over the top action, mixed with the most cheesiest of 80s dialogue that has not dated at all well then yes...loved it when I was younger but in my opinion it hasn't aged well and lacks the suspense created by the storyline of the original, something which Ridley Scott wants to get back in the prequel film.

This format called Bluray simply has one word on it. FAIL!

Its failed to live up to technical standards where the delivery of image and sound doesn’t come within a fraction of the theatrical release.

Image is DNR that softens the image down to bleared pile of crap and crap really looks like DNR when you look at it once.

The sound is often re-mixed and therefore isn’t identical to that I remember listening to in the cinema.

dtsHDMA is now monopolising the format so what are we suppose to do with the $£ thoaunds of grand’s worth of AVR that we spent on? It’s not looking or sound good is it?

Best advice is to forget about the format and see how the studio can survive on its own without our hard earned money.

The studios need to get their act together and stop **** ripping us off!
