    i watched all of them in the quadrilogy boxset. i did like the new directors cut of alien better, and prefer the special edition version of aliens.

    however i didnt like the new cut of alien 3 quite as much, don't get me wrong, good to have seen it and all the missing bits but it is still a god awful mess of a filim what ever way you edit it.

    alien resurection new cut not much different i didnt like the new begining the new ending felt like a scene out out planet of the apes.

    Alien - both cuts excellent (extra Dallas scene slows the action a bit) [horror]
    Aliens - director's cut best [action]
    Alien 3 - new cut is closer to the book and makes more sense (still can't figure out how an egg got on the Sulaco though) [morbid]

    Alien Resurrection - Rubbish full stop [comedy] :)

    I preferred the new cut of Alien 3 but would have included these 2 sequences, i prefer the dog busting out scene and i prefer to see the alien queen doing its stuff near the end of the film (( won't mention the scene for those who still haven't seen the film ))

    I like Alien Directors special edition version (( refuse to call it a directors cut as the original version is the version the director wanted ))
