    There are times when a “Director’s Cut” or “Extended Edition “ of a film only serves to pad it and does little to improve; The Abyss is not one of these. The extended release is a significantly stronger film than the theatrical release.
    Absolutely!

    Today he has, but with Terminator 2, Aliens & the Abyss I am glad having the extra scenes edited back into the movies. They actually add to the movies.
    Especially in The Abyss, it´s far, far more than just extra Scenes. Almost every Scene is a bit longer in the DC, which in this Special case has the effect of multiplying the Impact of the Overall atmosphere, bringing the whole Thing to live much more than the theatrical Version. Unlike in many other films, in The Abyss characters don´t do superfluous Things. Every bit of life on the Drilling platform adds to the experience.

    The final short film from the Alien 40th Anniversary collection is a decent one:


    I found that really boring. I am still hoping Scott will finish his Prometheus trilogy. The premise there is much more interesting than these tedious attempts at recapturing the horrors of the first.

    The Prometheus trilogy thus far is a bit of a fustercluck to me. Admirably ambitious but extremely misguided in execution. Though yes, I would agree that Scott should finish it out.

    A lot of these shorts have been pretty shrug inducing (for a variety of reasons) but that one above gave me exactly what I like about Alien.

    The Alien.

    Has anyone read the comic adaptation yet? I believe I've collected all the released issues, but I haven't read it yet. Looks interesting though.

    I have pre-ordered the collected edition of this comic.

    Having read the ALIEN³ book by Gibson, I can honestly say I was rather let down. The story offers very little to prove that it would have been a more appropriate sequel to Aliens than Fincher's movie.

    One of the greatest pieces of music of all time, shame it was not in the movie though the Die Hard scene was amazing
