The Alien Saga
release year: 2003 direct-to-DVD
viewing setting: home DVD, 6/13/16 and 11/1/03
synopsis: This is a documentary giving about a half-hour's worth of background on each of the four Alien movies.
impressions: Very engaging. I found that the first movie seemed to get the most detail, but all were covered, and well. There are a lot of little trivia bits and making-of parts that are fun to watch. The interview footage is dated - some of these people look so young! Also, this documentary came before the AVP movies and Prometheus.
final word: Worth seeing if you like one or more of the Alien movies.
