    by jim

    The debate is did the egg that hatched the face-hugger in Alien3, get on the Sulaco?The queen had niether the time nor the egg sac to lay it {having never left the underside of the drop ship}And even if she did , Ripley would have gone over the whole ship with a fine toothed comb, looking for anything egg shaped.The entire opening of Alien3 makes no sense!

    I bought it on Friday. Simply amazing. Especially the 1080p Alien. Honestly, a little disappointed with the grain that was purposely kept in Aliens (which it gets points for, but personally, I would like it as clear as the first one). I have not had the stomach to put in Alien 3. I may skip to Alien Resurrection as it is a little more entertaining. I wish I was patient enough to get the egg box, but damn, I don't think I have ever seen an anthology/collection of a series so stuffed with material. There is the uncut documentary of the making of Alien 3 that runs for like three hours and makes you want to give David Fincher a hug for what he had to put up with. In the end, it is nice to know that this was his first movie and his only shitty movie. Glad that's behind him. Here's to him snagging Dune.

    Thanks to the good folks at Fox I finally got my prize. But I want to say it was through no help from AICN or Merrick. Despite e-mails to Merrick about not getting my prize after several months he wouldn't even give me the courtesy of a reply to direct me to a contact. I managed to finally stumble upon a general contact address for Fox and tried that. After another bout of e-mails and follow-ups I got their help and, finally, my prize. It should not have to be this hard. I wonder how many people never get their prizes from AICN. My guess...a lot. I expected much better results from a site as well known as this one. But the folks here, especially Merrick, don't appear to be professionals. High praise to Fox for helping me and taking the time to make things right. The set is friggin' awesome.
