I've been a slobbering Alien fanatic since age six, and Aliens made its theatrical debut. Mmm, I can still recall the thrill of every slapped ammunition clip, every morbid hiss and the wicked cacaphony of machine gun fire.
Anyway, personally, I bought this because - well duh - its the Alien series. The pros are that I have my prized DVD collection in a nice little box. The cons are that it came packaged with a lump of [poo] called Alien: Resurrection. Personally, I've always looked down on people for their dim view on Alien 3. It made a perfect circle, I thought, to the series. Everything was fairly nicely wrapped up in an intriguing and fittingly depressing conclusion. The fourth film, however, was such a pathetic attempt I wish it hadn't been made. The impressive cast aside (although it certainly wasn't Ron Perlman's pinnacle as an actor. "So, like, what'd you do?") there were very few saving graces, and Buffy's Joss Whedon needs to check his head if he even thinks for a second that he's ever going to be Aliens material. He needs to stick where he belongs: television.
Anyway, given that this is only the price of 3 DVDs, you're basically getting the fourth one for free, so I strongly suggest it, just as I strongly suggest burning the fourth installment and sending it to Joss Whedon with a picture of his dog being sodomized by a kimodo dragon.

I've watched all four films and I have to say the first two were the best. The first, Alien, was a fantastic (for it's time, 1979)Sci-Fi Horror movie, with a great plot and ending. Yes, it's graphics and special effects are not up to par with the modern day Digital graphics and million dollar explosions that seem to dominate today's movies, but it takes a creative script and equally good acting/directing to make a movie like this work. That's why Alien succeeded and has such a large fan following to this day.
The sequel, Aliens, directed by James Cameron (Terminator I & II, Titanic) continued the saga of Lt. Ripley and the "Alien" in fine style. It is my favorite of the four and has an excellent supporting cast. I'm not going to tell you about it; Just watch it!
So, I've had nothing but good things to say about the first two movies. Why only four stars? Because the third movie really went down compared with the first two. I dont think it's because it was really bad, but more because the first two were sooo good, and my expectations for the third episode were high. It turned out to be slow and a little boring. The first two movies were 5-star material; this one only gets 2.5 stars from me.
Unfortunately, the final movie, Alien Resurrection, fails to improve much on the previous movie. Yes, there's definately more action, but Ripley's clone comes infected with the Butch/Slut gene, and makes her character less likable. The script takes much of the blame here. I dont think she was as comfortable in this role. Winona Ryder should have stayed away from this one. Her character softens the plot and generally weakens the whole movie. I struggle to give it 3 stars.
For my money, I would buy Alien and Aliens, instead of the entire legacy. They are two of the best Sci-Fi movies EVER! The last two, I'm sorry to say, are not worth the extra money.

You dont understand why David Fincher did'nt contribute on Quad?????? tell me what would you do?????,I own Alien Quad region 1 and 4 (Australian and US version)and also Alien Legacy (region 2 UK, 5 disk limited edition)i came up with this crazy idea to experiment with my multi-region player and to compare the difference in these box sets (obviously one has to be a mad collecter to do this). And yes even though the 2 Quads are almost the same in material (Legacy has material Quads don't have), they all differ in different ways, and i have had a ball comparing and collecting, and i have bonus material coming out of my ears, not a bad way to recover from 2 time consuming operations.
Result: Alien Quad region 1 US Rules
Why????
Region 1 Picture and sound quality is better
Region 1 has a deleted scene marker, region 2 and 4 do not.
Region 1 has deleted scenes in Theatre release menus, region 4 does not.
Region 4 jumps, pauses, flashes, all by a spit second (not a big deal)
Region 4 has a great and safe box design and artwork, region 1 is bigger has more artwork BUT is vunrable to fall apart although i have'nt had the problems other people have had, my advise is look after your box and be gentle and it should last.
Region 2 Alien Legacy has a great 5th disk (material not seen in any Quad boxes)and cool original cases. Region 1 US RULES and im Australian.
All you people critizing David Fincher for not contributing on commentary's for Alien 3, do some research with the crap he had to put up with so you know what you are complaining about(no wonder he did'nt want to show up, and tell me what would you do???????)
David Fincher negative critics GET A LIFE, for positive or nasty remarks you can email me on taylor5821@hotmail.com

This is the much older Alien Legacy box set containing the oldest DVD editions of the four Alien movies and offers little of anything new in terms of DVD extras. The Quadrilogy is far superior on every level.
Alien: This 1979 classic is my second favorite with the crew of a research ship being killed one by one by a menacing alien.
Aliens: This 1986 sequel is even better!
I love all four movies and this is highly recommended if you have spare change.
