Still waiting on the UK price. It's $140 retail in US which is almost £90.

That's a great big box of awesome. Definitely one for the Christmas present list (assuming the transfers aren't screwed up).

Alien 3: 2003 Special Edition (Restored Workprint Version)
So is this version cleaned up? The DVD version had some bad audio and picture.

I'd been intending to skip this and remain contented with the old Quadrilogy DVD, but... no, don't think I can.

It's great to see they've given it a proper name this time. I won't be rushing to get this one, it'll be really expensive and the box set is already excellent.

I wonder if Aliens is a new master. Isn't the existing Cameron approved one now really old?

Okay Iíve looked quickly at the so called features and isolated scores now is the isolated score for Alien only Dolby stereo 2.0 as it was on the first edition of Alien with two that it two isolated score tracks along with production on set dialogue.

Also is the theatrical version the same as the first edition DVD as that truly sounds the best in Dolby stereo digital 5.1 with monaural surrounds and the centre channel WOW! Unlike the rubbish re-mixed directors cut along with a so called original theatrical version NOT! Because they took the left and right stereo or centre phantom sound image and overlapped it on the centre discrete making it virtually impossible to listen to the original Dolby stereo 6track mix!

Iím saying be careful with this version because I just donít trust bluray or DVD remix format anymore.

Now the Aliens theatrical is the only one I tend to watch the most over the lousy rubbish poor sound effects edition of the special edition that sounds like production sound that hasnít been carefully treated in the Dolby stereo mix, it seems rushed, as you can hear all the production sound not precisely matching with the final ultimate 6track Dolby stereo mix for 70mm!

Now if this bluray is produced in dtsHDMA Fox CAN KEEP IT! Iíve banned dtsHDMA for being played in m,y JBL home cinema since a few months ago, with new bluray titles and most of all films that was produced was mixed and recorded in DOLBY STEREO 4.2.4 or track-track and six-track discrete.

Fox and many other studios have been brainwashing us claming dtsHDMA is better its mostly a loudness of sly mixing to put DOLBY TRUE-HD down.

And if you watch Alien, Aliens Alien3 that was mixed exclusively in DOLBY STEREO and for 70mm 6track since when does it show dts on the end credits since when!!!!!

Now with Alien Resurrection it was released in DOLBY STEREO SR-D and dts.

Iíd say 9 times out of 10 what we hear in the cinema is mostly DOLBY that has revolutionized the film industry not dts. And if Fox goes and uses dts without giving the consumer the choice to chose DOLBY STEREO TRUE-HD over dts then I say they are unfair and there is no way Iím spending £90.00 or ever £45.00 at some knock down price!

Iíd sooner buy the DVD version at least it often comes with DOLBY and dts! NOW THEN!

"Also, a new sound mix has been done for the extended edition of Alien 3, which involved bringing back some of the cast to reloop their dialogue.Ē

I find nothing wrong with Alien 3 the dialogue is well recorded mix in DOLBY STEREO SR that I saw at the cinema presented in DOLBY SR.

The dialogue panning was one highlight that I noticed lots of panned sound effects to the image location or off-screen sound effects as well as dialogue being twisted and panned over the surrounds as the Alien chases after them in the dimly lit corridors.

As long as the theatrical DOLBY STEREO mix hasnít been tampered with I donít give hoot, if they want to do an alterative version.

Also the tonal signature of their voices may have changed in the past 18 years.
