Give me Alien3 with the Assembly Cut (though with the dogburster) and I'll be there on day one.

Alien 3 Assembly Cut with Dog Burster and Theatrical version of Ripley's sacrifice. DONE!  ;D

Alternatively, Alien 3 Assembly Cut with the mention of Spike and the shot of the egg removed.

Considering you need a special Blu-ray player and telly, Alien 3 and Resurrection getting 4K transfers will depend on whether the format catches on.  Aliens would be a given, but for the original quality.  Don't know how it would come up.

Correct me if this is incorrect, but I thought Cameron hinted at a 3D conversion of Aliens.

A time ago, if Judgments Day did well.
It didn't.

DNR out the asshole, judging by the T2 4K.

Fine by me.  3D is a dumb gimmick and Cameron really screwed up the colors on T2.

RIP pink lasers. :(

If you're looking for a pink laser display you need to see Huggsy's bedroom. (Don't ask me how I know)

I've heard/read a lot of people agree with this... but for me personally, the theatrical version of the sacrifice scene is much more powerful, with her holding the alien/queen down as she falls... for me personally this just had more impact.

The way Ripley's so serene and maternally cuddles the Chestburster to her as she falls is what kills the theatrical ending for me.

Look at how Kane/the colonist/the dog/everyone else reacts to a Chestburster popping out of them. Ripley's calm response is ridiculous by comparison.

It's a shame because the actual Queenburster puppet they made was awesome, and the re-edit in the extended cut messes up perhaps the most powerful moment of score Goldenthal wrote for the entire film, but I'll still take the 'burster-less ending any day.

Ripley's calm response considering her decision to kill herself is perfect.

Comparing it to Kane is silly.

And the effect of Ripley falling into the furnace in the SE looks cheap and hokey as buggery.

Kind of.  He did not look happy falling down that shaft though, so the scream isn't completely out of place.  Just a bit.

The more annoying thing was that it was just the Emperor overdubbed.
