Jajo w salonie

Gdy zobaczyłem zapowiedź tego wydawnictwa, podjarany jak mały Kaziu przedstawiłem je żonie słowami: "Zobacz, co stanie w naszym salonie!". Jak mogłem się spodziewać, jej entuzjazm prawie dorównywał mojemu. Z naciskiem na "prawie"...

Powoli spełniają sie moje marzenia. Blu-ray stał się już domem dla większości moich kultowych produkcji - "Matrixów", "Terminatorów", "Predatorów", "Władcy pierścieni", "Szeregowca Ryana" i paru innych. Wciąż jednak istnieje kilka bastionów, którym ciężko ulec magii niebieskiego krążka (i zielonych papierków). Należą do nich m.in. "Gwiezdne wojny" oraz stara trylogia "Indiana Jones", których niczym oka w głowie pilnuje George Lucas, mając w głębokim poważaniu nowy nośnik i miliony fanów błagających o wydania w HD.

Ale co z tymi marzeniami? Ano to, że już w październiku ziści się kolejne z nich - w moim domu zagości wypasione "Alien Anthology", zawierające 6 płyt Blu-ray, ze wszystkimi czterema filmami i 60. godzinami dodatków, jakich jeszcze świat nie widział.

Poza wersją "standardową" - choć ciężko tak nazwać 6 płyt BD w gustownym opakowaniu - pojawi się limitowana edycja "The Guardian": "Strażnik" czuwa nad jajem, którego podstawa skrywa cenną zawartość. I to właśnie wydanie mam nadzieję postawić w swoim salonie.

Chociaż wielkiego entuzjazmu w westchnieniu żony nie wyczułem, wiem, że półmetrowa Alien Queen i taki sam Sentinel z Matrixa na moich półkach, już przed laty przygotowały ją na podobne niespodzianki... :)

 

EDYTA:

How's that for loaded? Not only is everything from the original Alien Quadrilogy carried over (and you'll find more on all that content by reading our in-depth review of the set here at The Bits), there's a TON of new content added just for the Blu-ray as well - over FOUR HOURS of all-new added material. For example, you'll note the never-before-available "Burke Cocoon" deleted scene is finally here, as are a few other new deleted scenes. Rare unseen Sigourney Weaver screen tests are now included. You'll get thousands of new still photographs from the Fox archives. Not only is Wreckage and Rage: Making Alien 3; the uncut and restored version of the documentary - originally titled Wreckage and Rape - that was edited for the Alien Quadrilogy DVD release, an additional 30 minutes of ALL NEW material has been added to this documentary as well. The Enhancement Pods contain extensive new material, as does the MU-TH-UR Mode Interactive Experience with Weyland-Yutani Datastream. You'll note also that both The Alien Legacy and Alien Saga documentaries - which were excluded from the Quadrilogy - are finally included here in this set. AND... the Restored Workprint Version of Alien 3;, which was originally created in 2003 for the Quadrilogy release, has gotten a new audio mix polish for this Blu-ray release, including having many of the original actors return for new ADR sessions of their dialogue. The set will even include a booklet: the Alien Anthology: MU-TH-ER Mode Viewer's Guide! In short: Fox's new Blu-ray set is going to make the already spectacular DVD release even better... and THAT'S saying something.
