    Um, who're you agreeing with ? Nevermind.

    I don't think they were annoying, they just didn't took it as seriously as people here do because they're not fans of the initial premise ( Alien versus Predator, I mean). At the end of the day, site's called AvPGalaxy so AvP as a concept is taken into consideration as well as Alien and Predator while their show's called Perfect Organism which implies Alien, only Alien and nothing apart from Alien. So when they eventually get to talk about something else they just don't hold it to such high standarts. I had a lot of fun listening to them.

    To be quite honest, AvPR commentary that Hicks and Co did while was quite enjoyable and fun left me a bit pissed off at the end when RidgeTop tried to evaluate the movie saying that it at least better than The Predator with what I just cannot  agree. Sorry, RidgeTop, nothing personal, just difference of opinions.

    But I agree that they need to do more of these.

    Did an Alien Day YouTube collection video. HUGE Alien, Predator, Engineer, Marine, & Weyland Yutani armies. INSANE ARMY BUILDING!


    I shot 2 videos, one shorter version (8 minutes)


    One longer version (24 minutes)

    I think Hicks is doing his best. As usual.

    As for PO guys: I haven't listened this commentary yet (there was surprisinhly a lot of content yesterday) but I found the first episode of their so called Shit Show about AvP to be fun and engaging. I guess, I just enjoyed their more light and positive approach 'cause whenever I hear someone talk about AvP lately It's mostly giving the movie shit about how dissapointing it was.

    I hate to be negative, but I tried listening to the AVP Perfect Organism podcast and I couldn't get through 15 minutes.  Not only do I not agree with their opinions, the other guys on that podcast are pretty annoying to listen to.  Hicks, you gotta make some more on your own.

    So.... no Audible audio-drama announcements?  Not even a whisper?

    The Fox licensing department looks very different to how it did 12 months ago.

    As SM says. Until they rebuild after the merger, I wouldn't expect any big stuff. What's being announced now is that was already in place.

    Even though it was quieter there was still some nice artwork and shares going around.

    I was pleasantly surprised! Without any official announcements, it was still a very busy day! I was glued to the Twitter feed and it was always active. It was really nice to see it trending. Alien still makes some noise!

    Hicks' Alien Trilogy stream inspired me to mess around with some emulation for the game, and I must say I got it looking pretty good! Hopefully a 'Let's Play' for that one is in order.

    Yeah, the footage you sent me was much nicer. I was always keen to just do it "authentically" but I just think better looking is more preferable now.

    I hope everyone had a good day, whatever they were doing!

    Listening to the Alien 3 OST to celebrate, you can say what you want about the movie (its fantastic imo) but the quality of Goldenthals work is undisputed.

    Id dare to say one of the best soundtracks ever made. Haunting and gripping throat like very few

    It is very good.  No question.

    So.... no Audible audio-drama announcements?  Not even a whisper?

    Hi all

    LONG time lurker here who finally decided to sign up!

    I could have sworn that someone in this thread posted about the current offer on the Alien/Predator Collection at Eaglemoss but I looked back to thank whoever posted it and I can’t find it so maybe I saw it elsewhere.

    Anyway, Eaglemoss have 30% off most of their Alien/Predator Collection or Buy 1 Get 1 Free in UK/Europe-

    Super 7 are also doing a “Buy 4 Alien items, get 26% off”-

    Still have my fingers crossed for a new Audible audio drama but Dirk Maggs seems to have been working on Sandman lately instead.

    Hicks is alive and well!  Awesome!  Welcome!

    Listening to the Alien 3 OST to celebrate, you can say what you want about the movie (its fantastic imo) but the quality of Goldenthals work is undisputed.

    True, true.  On both accounts.  It is a great film.  However, a different film can still, and should be made.  Side-canon.

    Happy Alien Day 2020 (and my annual appearance LOL)!

    I wanted to get a box of 2018 Upper Deck Aliens, but I couldn’t get one until this week. I also almost purchased a 2018 Upper Deck Aliens - Actor Reactor autograph of Sigourney Weaver (the artwork is fantastic), but didn’t want to drop $600 just yet (notice I said yet). I will be starting my favorite film, Alien3 (Assembly cut version) in a few minutes, hope everyone has a great Alien Day and stay safe out there!

    Happy Alien Day! Already snagged all the Reebok gear! Speaking of the article says “fourth and final collab” is this something Reebok announced?

    Anyway I decided last week to give the Zulu Hendricks quadrilogy a chronological re-read so I read all of “Defiance” on Sunday, read through “Prototype” over the course of the week and this morning I finished it off with “Resistance” and “Rescue”. Now I’m gonna give the prequels a go.

    Have a great day y’all!

    Mark Verheiden podcast when please?

    Oh and Happy Alien Day. Thanks.

    It'll be up in 45 minutes.

    Happy Alien Day  :)

    If only we could get some idea of what Disney/Fox is planning with the franchise..

    Well Disney "vaulted" the 1979 movie and no mention from Mr H reviews (YouTube) on whose in charge or corporate structure at 20th Century Films.

    There's no-one in charge of the franchise at the minute. It's all still recovering from the merger.

    What does "vaulted" even mean though? I can still go buy Alien on bluray at walmart or online. I actually just picked up the Alien 4k disc 2 weeks ago myself.

    Disney are stopping independent cinemas from showing ALIEN or limiting cinematic re-relases unless sanctioned by Disney.

    There was a debate over whether this "vault" would extend to limiting the supplies of newly pressed Blu-Rays, but doesn't mean ones manufactured would be pulled from the shelves.
