Thanks for sharing Elmazalman. I know it's pretty geeky but I love analyzing the differences with these transfers.

It's subtle. Look at the right and left edges of the frames.

Ah yes, I see it now.

I just had the Legacy dvd up on my projector last night (84" image) and it still looks great compared to the blu-ray, so I might watch that one more often!

Although the 2003 DVD has improved resolution, I prefer the 1999 release. It has better colours and isn't as contrast boosted as the 2003 DVD.

The 1999 DVD does show more image.

I got rid of my Legacy set when the Quadrilogy came out. I really need to get around to rebuying that.

The 20th anniversary DVD is still one of my favourite home releases. One of the best uses of interactive DVD menus.

Having a close look at the main menu screen (when it first starts up), I spotted what looks like a subliminal image, of one of the guy's responsible for the production of the 20th Anniversary DVD (also the ALIEN / ALIENS Laserdisc boxed sets from the early 1990s).

It looks like a subliminal cameo. It's a flash frame of someone with a beard ... you'll have to be quick to spot it.
