  1. Do you collect DVDs? Or movies? What do you have?

    (If this topic has been done before, send it to hell. I used the search and didn't find it.)

      Have you seen the extended cut of Alien³? The original was always my least favorite of the series, but now that I've got the 9DVD Quadrilogy and have seen all the extended cuts, it's turning into my favorite. The full version is miles better than the original; think along the lines of the same overall improvement that Two Towers extended made to Two Towers theatrical, but Alien³ extended has an even greater percentage of footage restored.


      Yep, I've watched the extended (or alternative really since there's a lot of changed scenes) cut of Alien³ (I also have the quadrilogy). It's certainly interesting to see, but I don't really know if I liked it better. At least the scene at the start when Ripley is found in the ship is definitely an improvement, but I didn't really like some of the other added stuff. For example one shot that shows the small alien running is quite ugly: the way it runs like a monkey, and the visual effect isn't that good either. I will watch both versions again some day as the movie certainly has its own strengts too.

      I just saw Two Towers for the first time by the way (the theatrical version) and wasn't impressed at all, and I really liked the first movie. Does the extended edition really improve it much? I've heard someone say the theatrical version is the better one.

      Yeah technically it's an assembly cut, the compilation of all available footage made before the actual editing begins. It could have used a bit of editing, but I still think it's miles better than the theatrical cut.

      Heh, you know, I was going to start talking about how much better the extended edition is, but I figure by the time I'm done typing you could have watched it yourself. It's still my least favorite of the 3, but I have to say the theatrical cut was possibly one of the most horribly edited and butchered movies I've ever seen. I don't understand how Jackson even let it be released. I would've had a lockout with the studio or something if it was my film.

      In fact now I remember I made two posts sharing your sentiment regarding the theatrical cut in this thread. Extended edition solved nearly all my complaints and actually had me anticipating Return of the King again, so I feel safe recommending it to most people who agreed with my whining :P
