I'm probably in the minority on this, but I don't care for the director's cut and would love to see the original theatrical version of Aliens on DVD. Any chance?

Umm, there is only like an extra 7 mins in the "extended" release.

Actually it's more like 17 minutes. I think most of it ruins the tight pace of the original cut, and definitely reduces the build up of suspense. The original lets you use your imagination for the first hour before all hell breaks loose. The new beginning showing what happens to the colonists destroys that build up big time. It would be nice to have it on a disc like the Abyss where you can choose which version you'd like to see.
