"I'm not sure what some of the other reviewers were critiquing. Some claimed that this set had no bonus content which is completely false. There is a LOT of bonus material on this set, mainly focused on the first two films (Ridley Scott commentary, isolated score, James Cameron interviews, deleted scenes and tons of photos). This is basically the Alien Lagacy set, which was released in the late 90's, minus the horrible 4th film. That sits just fine with me. The one reason I never purchased that set is because I despise that 4th film. Sure, the third isn't near as good as the first 2, but it at least fits in the mood of an Alien film, unlike Resurrection.
If you are hardcore, there is the much more expansive Alien Quadrilogy on DVD, but believe it or not, it excludes some of the bonus content from this set that I really enjoy, so I never traded for the Quad. Now that an all inclusive Blu-Ray release is coming, I think I may upgrade, but this set has served me very well though all of my years of DVD. What you get for the price of this set CANNOT be beat.
And again, there are plenty of bonus features on these disc, particularly the first film. A bonus for me is that these are all in slim packs, which saves room on my shelf. I love slim packs. I never understood why DVD cases had to be so large anyway.
So if you don't have a Blu-ray, and aren't a hardcore fan that must have and watch the expensive, 60+ hour, Holy Grail of Alien sets, this is the perfect choice for the price. Good movies, good features, good sound, good picture...good deal."
