    I should get this prize because I allowed a Facehugger to lay an egg in my chest so that I could nurture and raise my very own Alien. I was such a proud parent when my very own Baby Alien burst from my chest, words could not describe.

  19. mad82

    With one (possibly two) prequel(s) on the way I need to able to re-watch (and then re-watch again) the films in the best format available. DVD lacks the quality/detail and VHS... is VHS, nothing more needs to be said. I have had my predator, predeator 2, AVP, AVP:Requiem, and Predators I need the Ridley Scott, James Cameron, David Finch, and Jean-Pierre Jeunet take on extra-terrestrials in Blu-ray. Did you know Joss Whedon wrote Alien Resurrection?
