Is a ’director’s cut’ ever a good idea?
The director's cut has been a feature of the home video landscape for years, getting a significant boost from multi-disk DVD and now Blu-Ray sets. There are some pretty bad
ones around, but which are the best? Movie sites like Shortlist
, IGN Movies
have all given us lists of the best (and worst), and online discussions
have suggested others (Blade Runner
tops most lists, but beyond that they diverge significantly). Where do you start when that two-hour epic isn't epic enough?

is in the works, with commercial director Carl Rinsch

Aliens vs Predator: Whoever wins, you lose
- MeFi's own jscalzi
talks about the worst Sci-Fi film of the year. Meanwhile Sigourney Weaver and Ridley Scott suggest making another alien movie - with Ripley
but without any aliens
. It's may not be all bad news for xenomorphs though - 2009 will see the release of Aliens: Colonial Marines is still just around the corner, hopefully

Alien (1979; dir. Ridley Scott) original props and stuff
for auction. Here's a Halloween costume
the kids down the street won't soon forget. And wouldn't a plaster cast of Tom Skerritt's teeth
make a great stocking stuffer? Also, this prop
seems like it could be put to some alternative uses the makers never intended.
Okay, now he's not a replicant.
Contrary to what Ridley Scott
said, Harrison Ford claims Deckard was not a replicant. Where's Phillip K. Dick when you need him? Oh, right...
