The only guy that's seemingly alone is Mr. Depres, but he doesn't talk much, so he doesn't feel too left out. Like the others in the set, it's a good track, with plenty of ideas and opinions about the movie's look and feel, with great praise given by everybody to everybody. There are obviously some nice tidbits. For example, the Alien Queen was the same used in 'Aliens', and they only had 2 corridors to shoot in by the end of the shoot. Oh yeah, that basketball shot Mrs. Weaver did is real. There's plenty of behind the scenes stories as well. In particular, the explanation of how they did the whole underwater scene is quite scary. All in all it's a nice commentary. It's nice that many of them are paired because they can ask each other questions and they can bounce off each other. It's definitely worth listening to if you're a fan of the movie.

Basically, I would say that as the Alien films get less interesting so does the commentaries, perhaps I just find it difficult to get involved when I did'nt care for the film. Ofcourse there are som interesting and funny tidbits spread throughout the track, but I dont think it's worth the effort to sit through it, unless you're a big fan (of the fourth one specifically).

Best bit: I did enjoy hearing about what a good time Jeunet had in Hollywood, and he apparently had quite free rains(sp?) during the production.

More waste of time. Bad bad movie, better commentary, but thatís not saying much. Junet is a great filmmaker as proved by Amelie, but with this he fall flat on his face, and the proud tone of his voice does not suit the result. He knows what heís doing, but does not know how to keep an interesting conversation, at least in english. 4/10
