Finished it, I couldnt put it down despite knowing Anthology extras by memory by now. Very well written and just oozing with great details and nearly daily anecdotes from the production

Heres my brief review and few pics for those who havent gotten it yet or wonder if theres anything new

about ten pages in, trying to digest every single detail; hoping to dig in this weekend!

edit: 80 something pages in, cannot get the image of "tommy lee jones in the alien suit" out of my head. i knew he was mentioned for dallas, but that made me laugh

The Rinzler book collects a lot of old quotes from previous book/magazine/DVD/Blu-ray sources, but also plenty of new material.

I'm going through the book now. Definitely p*sses all over the Vault, and is the best 'Making Of' on the subject.

Can't wait to see the volume on ALIENS.

Better than the Vault too. It's simply the most detailed look at the production of the film as of yet.

Thanks man. Then thats a buy. I was weary since theres so many books out there already which I all have, wanted to make sure this one is different

How about the Alien Vault then? How does it compare to that?

I can't recommend Rinzler's book enough. Shits all over the Archive.
