WALTER HILL WOULD BE PROUD
26 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

I have been an alien fan for many years. When I bought Alien 3 on DVD, I had the delight of watching this "making of". It's informative and entertaining, not simple minded like the countless of other "making of specials" I have seen. It's a must see for any alien fan. There's nothing much else to say. But, there is one very big disappointment. THERE'S NO PETE POSTLTHWATE interview. That over-talented actor had the nerve to do the "LOST WORLD MAKING OF", and not the "Alien 3 Making of"! Also, I think there was a little lack of ADVENTURE'S INC'S MICHAEL BIEHN. If you have the Alien 3 DVD, go watch it now! It will make you want to cry out for butter milk. And you will be home in time for corn flakes. Oh yeah, there is another Alien 3 trailer attached at the end of making of. So, if you don't have the Alien 3 DVD, wait.......a new boxset it on the horizon. Im getting all excited just thinking about, and you know what's it going to be better than? right?

Basically to sum it all up, I rather be at home on a Tuesday morning watching "MAKING OF ALIEN 3", then be out on a Friday night with my girlfriend.

Till Then, .....shhh
