All right, we’re starting off with this...

You can get Fox’s outstanding Alien Anthology Blu-ray box set today on Amazon.com (here at this link) for just $20. That’s a whopping 67% off the SRP, so act fast. This is one of the best box sets ever produced, with all four Alien films remastered in stunning HD quality (including the Alien 3: Restored Workprint Version) on 6 discs, with a massive bounty of extras (including two full discs of bonus content) all created by our old friend Charles de Lauzirika. Those documentaries alone are worth dropping $20 for this package, so if you haven’t picked up a copy yet... now’s the time!

I should add here that if you’re waiting for Fox to release a 4K upgraded Alien Anthology box set, you’re going to be waiting a while. Only the original Alien is being released on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray in 2019. There may be a new Alien box set that includes the Anthology contents on Blu-ray along with Alien, Prometheus, and Alien: Covenant in 4K. We’ve seen artwork packaging artwork circulating (from Amazon.jp). But if you already have Prometheus and Alien: Covenant in 4K, your smartest best at this point is to buy the new Alien 4K release when it arrives and pick up the Anthology for $20 ASAP.

Ladies and gentlemen, I want to apologize right up front. I had planned a whole post for you today. But then this happened…

Starman in Orbit

No kidding, that is Elon Musk’s red Tesla Roadster. In Earth orbit. For REAL. With a spacesuited “Starman” in the driver’s seat and the words “Don’t Panic” on the dash screen. [Read on here…]

We’re closing out the week with just a quick update, but first things first...

Congratulations to Elon Musk and everyone Space-X today, for successfully launching a Dragon spacecraft to the International Space Station and safely landing the first stage of the Falcon 9 rocket back on Earth (on a platform out at sea)! That is some serious steely-eyed missile man magic right there.  [Read on here…]
