  1. What's up, Jonathan? Have you seen the movie "Pitch Black" with Vin Diesel? The movie was a tweaked version of an unused Alien 3 script.
    Joss Whedon actually worked on the script for Alien: Resurrection, which was later butchered by the Director and Co. You can definitely see the main characters as a pre-Firefly crew.
    I admit I already splurged on a copy of the Japanese Shin Godzilla Blu-Ray. With a copy of the sub-titles found online, I'm good to go.
