    The Alien Trilogy is one of my favorites, I would love to own this pretty much b/c I love sci-fi. If I do win I'm pretty much going to be having a movie night for sure. Alien Trilogy just has a great story with an amazing cast and pretty sick to watch in the dark. So I hope you find me worthy of winning this awesome prize. thanks for the chance.

    Huge Ridley Scott, James Cameron, Sigourney Weaver and H.R. Giger fan. I've seen all these movies in different versions multiple times and I don't get tired of seeing them. I'm also big on the art of film making and special effects, meaning that I will enjoy watching all the extra content with passion! As both a graphic artist and movie geek I know that blu-ray is far superior than DVD and you can be assured that I'll milk this product for every penny its worth.
    I want this so bad, do I get extra points for saying please please please pretty pleeeease?
