So how the hell do I get this disc now? I don't want to pay $50 on ebay...
well... then you might be SOL.
watch used area here and on DVDtalk for people trading it. But you'll probably give up $60 worth of dvds to get one.
PS; I edited your sig as it displayed at 12 lines. Should be less than 5 if raw text, or an image around 100 pixels tall w/ 1-2 lines of text....
Well that certainly sucks... oh well, guess I can live without it.
You'll wish you had it. It's a pretty sweet documentary.
I was sure surprised when it actually showed up. I usually miss out on those kind of deals. Hehe
Wonder how copyrighting would be affected since it was free (if I remember correctly)...would a VHS copy be just as illegal?
Either way, I agree, it's a pretty cool keepsake of the series. Don't know that I'd pay $60 for it...like I did for a 1st edition unoppened OOP Platoon on eBay...that I believe was re-released as an SE. DOH!
Oh well...c'est la vie!
Actually I don't recall thinking the fifth disc was all that great. I have not watched it since I recieved it in the mail. Maybe I should give it another look.
I have the DVD If you just want to see the documentary, it was also available in VHS, and I think it is pretty easy to track down. Chances are good that it will be included in the upcoming "Alien: 5 star edition"
If its the same disc thats included in the R4 Alien legacy box set, it is one of the better documentaries I have seen.
If you dont have the set already, it's a lot cheaper to just get the R4 set as it includes the 5th disc--presuming of course that you have a player that is region-free and converts PAL to NTSC. The set typically runs around $50+ from online retailers.
Will this documentry be included in the re-release of Alien?
I'd say that's quite possible, since it focused exclusively on Alien
I sent away for the disc right after I purchased the box set and was lucky enough to get it. It came packaged in a cardboard sleeve. Sharpline Arts, the producers of the disc, had created a cover and insert for the disc that one could use with a keepcase. I had the .pdf files at one time (if anyone still has them, I would appreciate it if they could send them to me via IRC or email) and used them for a case.
The doc itself is excellent if you're into those kinds of things. It gives you a complete and detailed account of Alien's evolution from script to screen. Just about everyone involved with the production is here, although Weaver ,unfortunately, isn't. Giger is interesting to watch. He's also kinda creepy. There is some interesting recent video of his museum in Switzerlan. Scott is always fun to listen to and hearing him recollect about his experience on Alien, his excitement about the project is still apparent. Some of the really interesting stuff deals with Ron Cobb and the production design of the film. You also get to see how some of the film's props look today. There are just so many things packed in the doc.
The only thing that annoys me about the disc is that there are no chapter stops.
If you're a fan of Alien, you will enjoy The Alien Legacy.
YGM, mate! For anyone else interested in the files, they're archived on DVDFile's site, right here. And thanks to Vince Maskeeper for sending me the files in the first place. Cheers!
Somebody has mine and I don't remember who and no one will fess up to having it!!!
I had it, sold it. I'd place it in the "Watch once and then put away forever" category.
You can always buy it off Ebay, watch it, and resell it. Just don't pay the big bucks up front for a sealed copy.
The files I sent you just bounced back to me; seems your Hotmail account won't permit an attachment of that size, as I suspected. Use the link to DVDFile provided above instead, okay? Okay! Cheers!
Thank you very much, Dave.
