  1. I HAVE THIS BOXSET!!!

    Yes Resurrection is only there for the completist (meaning movie geek, as if you didn’t know) But this boxset kicks all other DVD’s into a galaxy far far away. 9 discs to drule ALL over, and then there are the special editions of EVERY single movie! Alien 3 was not a better movie but the new stuff was so much fun to watch that it seemed i was watching a new movie…well kinda. Ok, i admitt there wasn’t loads of new stuff but then the new stuff was decent…but maybe only the alien fanatics will only care. I don’t know! But then i got a total kick out of this boxset, it blew my fucking mind. Now i have all four movies on video, and twice on DVD, including special editions of each one!!

    I’m seriously getting out of control here……………………..please help me!!………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

  2. Could this boxset BE any more stupid?? Then i shouldn’t moan, at least they have tried not like some boxsets that keep re-releaseing with only a bit more extras. Either way i’m buying this boxset!!!
