You dont understand why David Fincher did'nt contribute on Quad?????? tell me what would you do?????, June 25, 2005
Reviewer: M. taylor "alien crazy" (Australia) - See all my reviews
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
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???????)
