Amazing movies, but transfer of 5-disc collection is crap,
This review is from: Alien Quadrilogy [DVD]  (DVD)
There seem to be a lot of different box sets of the Alien Quadrilogy out there. This one has 5 discs mentioned in the description, yet 9 in the summary. Very confusing. My version has the 5 discs, 4 for the films and one with bonus material. The films are all amazing, with Alien being the superior of the 4 and a timeless classic. I just wrote this to make clear that there is a lot of confusion as to which sets have what number of dvd's and what transfer quality. I have the 5 disc quadrilogy box set, and was very sorry to discover the digital transfer is very poor. It looks almost as grainy as a VHS! It didn;t cost me much, but it states at the beginning of each film "Digitally remastered", which it clearly isn't. Amazon should do well to get their information straight and make clearer which versions are what quality, how many discs, etc.
again: this review refers to the 5-disc edition, NOT the 9-disc or BluRay editions. For some reason, Amazon heaps all comments together to confuse matters more...
