Discussion in '4K Ultra HD Blu-rays' started by Phil Hinton, Apr 28, 2019.
Yeah, it was £19.99 yesterday so it must be a price match.
Ah I knew there was a reason I hadn't bought it yet. That's too tempting - ordered!
Same here. I was looking at it yesterday but held off ordering it then. I'm glad I did
You can say that again.....
Crazy thing is....if the artwork had been better (or the steelbook artwork come to that) I would have bought it on release!
Director's cut on ATV 4K still only HD
Watched the 4K disc last night and was blown away by the picture quality. I don't have a large 4K collection, probably around 40, but this is by far the best looking one I own.
Watched last night, stunning transfer & deserving of all the praise, for sure.
Unfortunately I found the film a real drag. Blasphemy I know, but hey. I'll always love Alien, but mainly for nostalgic reasons to be honest...
BURN THE HERETIC
Watched this the other night, was impressed with the upgrade, HDR really is a game changer for this format.
I Bought the 4k Alien movie on iTunes last week and aliens in HD and they go and drop the price this week to £9.99 for the whole aliens 6 movie collection
Alien 6 Film Collection on iTunes
Still a classic and the 4K version gives it some justice, well it beats VHS LOL!
Think Aliens is better tho.
Wrong thread. This is the Alien 4K disc thread.
Just ordered it from Amazon, £15.25, alongside The Revenant which was £13.23.
So did I!!!
Will buy this tomorrow in Walmart. After tax works out at £12.31.
Talk about money for old rope... these feckers keep getting substantial money (€29) out of me for the same thing over and over again
I have to give you credit for finding it somewhere for €29. I've not seen it that expensive anywhere.
Welcome to Ireland, the few places that actually sell UHDs tend to view them as the media equivalent of Faberge eggs.
I saw Dracula Untold for €45 in a record shop once.
I watched this last night and thought it was one of the best uses of HDR i've seen. It really added something to lots of scenes in the movie.
Yep. I've previously bought the 'Alien Trilogy Facehugger' VHS box set, 'Alien Quadrilogy' nine-disc DVD box set & the 'Alien Anthology' six-disc Blu-ray box set.
Already eagerly anticipating 'Aliens' in 4K.
I'd say 90% of Alien fans have the same duplicates collection! Movie studios are not stupid, their premier movie titles can be re-sold to suckers ad-infinitum
Tower Records Dublin. Only after I noticed Amazon selling it for much cheaper. Tower will also sell you Game of Thrones Season One 4K UltraHD for princely sum of €69.99... I sh*t you not, I have photographic evidence
Anything beats VHS.
Finally got to watch my 4K version. Totally blown away - Cas's review was spot on; my Blu Ray copy looked good, but the depth of colours on this was fantastic.
The Missus spent the time in the kitchen listening to an Audio Book - it freaks her out too much, but she did visit for the safe bits
First time I noticed the Alien hanging in the Chains above Brett - and I do have the Blu Ray Director's cut version
Now REALLY ready for ALIENS!
I hope LG updates their 4k Bluray players with HDR10+
Still though it's going to be better than my Bluray 1080p version.
Still looked absolutely amazing on my B7 played on a UP970. And I do have this cut on Blu Ray
