Viewing Notes

Noticed that all the ALIEN films were available on Comcast OnDemand in HD. Having not seen them for a while I decided to watch them all… starting with this one, one of my favorite movies of all time. Wish I could say the HD was really good but unfortunately either from my antiquated RPTV or the bandwidth, the PQ was a bit pixelated. Didn’t detract from the awesomeness.
