Have you ever been mistaken for a man?
No. Have you?

The BR is excellent IMO, but I'm a geek for the series.
UHD is on order.

Looks like I’m buying Alien for the 6th time.

When a 4K box set comes out with all of them then...the blu looks fine to me.

I thought Alien already looked fantastic on BD ... those new screens are outstanding.

According to a review I just read, it looks very good (RS oversaw the transfer).
The audio is the same 5.1 DTS MA from the BD of 2010 (which was pretty damn good BTW).
Apparently, Scott had the option of an object-based audio track, but declined.
It's a little skimpy on the Extras, so keep your old BD set.

Anyway, the bottom line is this 4k release is definitely worth 15 bucks.

Hopefully lots of folks don't hold out for the whole 4K box set, or it would likely never happen. I'd imagine there's little hope for the box set unless this release generates some sales.

Word is a Boxset is a LONG way off...if ever.
