Just how much did you like the “Alien” movies? Well, now you get a chance to prove your love. On December 2, Fox is releasing all four of them in a 9 disc, interconnected set that stretches five and half feet long. That’s more than 62 hours of material! It’s listed at $99.98, but amazon.com has it for $69.99 (they routinely knock 30% off everything that comes out: just one of the many reasons I buy 100% of my books, DVDs, tapes, and CDs there. My UPS guy thinks I own stock in them – I don’t). I loved “Alien,” the first one; the second was OK, but I got really scared, so I passed on the third and fourth. But you don’t have to! Good story in today’s New York Times, by Peter M. Nichols, on the method behind the apparent madness.
Fox is calling it “The Alien Quadrilogy.” Wonder where they got that word? Made it up, I guess. I like it!
