Just bought alen and aliens collectors edition (r1) and was surprised that they dont have a dts soundtrack on them! I checked movietymes site and dts isnt listed for them but it isnt listed for the quadrilogy either and you have a review of the r1 quadrilogy with dts on this site!
Why would they put out collectors editions after they released a boxset wi dts and not have the dts tracks on them?

That is strange, I thought they would be the same discs as the set but just sold seperately. Anyway as long as they are THX certified (which they should be) then the DD5.1 will be just as good IMO.

THX certification is NOT a sign of quality and DTS sound should be an improvement on Alien.

Are you sure that Alien Collector's Edition doesn't have DTS? Do you actually have the DVD in your possession? I ask because I have the DVD on order and will cancel if it turns out not to have the DTS track. According to the Fox Home Entertainment store it's listed as having DTS........see here

Having reviewed both regions for the forum before christmas I can assure you that R1 and R2 both have DTS tracks as alternatives for Alien and Alien Resurrection. The Alien track is particularly awesome.

docsmith2k1 - Hi mate :)

BBCuk2day is talking about the individual Alien and Aliens Collector's releases not the Quadrilogy sets that I believe you reviewed ;) I feel pretty certain that he's got it wrong, though.............at least I hope he's wrong :D

The individual discs are identical to the two discs sets for each film in the Quadrilogy and Alien and Alien Res do Have DTS options.
