It has been a while since I have visited here. I contributed to the 1st Alien Appendix and I will be happy to lend a hand. I still have some of my source material but unfortunately I lost a lot of it through the 3 moves back and forth to and from the coasts.
One of the things I lost was the Laserdisc Boxed set of Alien. I remembered the supplemental information was endless. The Drawings, Photos and text that were included were fascinating and I have been trying to find a replacement for a while. Unfortunately the area I live in now, never had a lot of laserdisc fans so slim pickings here.
Some of the stuff that was on those Appendix disc was really poor quality that came from VHS recordings from broadcast TV (I know since I contributed it) so if it gets included on the updated discs, It is not going to look good on the new HD and UHD sets how ever you encode it.
Funny I just 2 nights ago watched the new 40th anniversary 4k disc and I agree the detail is amazing It almost like watching it at the theater for the 1st time.
Any way I just wanted to drop in and say Hi.
