Alien Quadrilogy (9 Disc Complete Box Set) [DVD] [&hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ Sigourney Weaver

3.0 out of 5 stars Bad news for Region 2, 29 Nov 2003
Yes, the Alien Quadrilogy is one of the greatest DVDs ever to be release, and one of the most anticipated. With over 45hrs of special features, it has enough to keep even the most demanding Alien fan entertained.

If you are looking for endless behind-the-scenes info and photographs, a humourus writing style and lots of jokes and witty comments, then this book is definetely not for you. However, if you want lots of facts and information that can be learned just by watching the episode itself, a monotonous writing tone, and very little behind-the-scenes stuff, of which all can be found on any obsessed Voyager fan's website, then this book is for you.
Unlike the previous 'bible' that is the Deep Space Nine companion, this book provides very little of what companions are all about, a pitiful amount of behind-the-scenes stuff and a writer who seems to have no personality and clearly did not know… Read more
