    Well I bought the blu ray, 3D blu ray no less. Sadly it's no better on a second viewing. It looks great but the plot & characterisation are appalling. I've watched a bit of the making of and it seems that scenes were thought up, however they were never able to meld them into a coherent whole. Most surprisingly the decision to move away from a direct Alien prequel came from the suits at Fox. The logic behind this was that the alien had been done to death and they wanted something new, something surprising. It's true that the Alien has been done to death, but not well. Instead of moving away they should have embraced Giger's beast and used all the technology at their disposal to bring it to life as never before. You cannot improve on perfection.
