Default Alien Anthology or Back To Future Trilogy?

Yeah, I know, everyone is tired from this type of threads.

But I really cant buy more than one at a time, so, I need help on choosing.

Back to The Future - Have seen only parts, dont even remember, I like sci-Fi.
Alien Anthology - I am a big horror fan, havent seen any one of them.

Which one is a better choice?

Alien Anthology. It's a better set and personally, I enjoy the Alien films more anyway. This is all a matter of opinion, though.
Better Blu than Red.

If I had to choose, I would go to the Alien Anthology first.

Four films, each at least 2 hours long, with two different versions of each, loaded with old and new special features.

Get Back to the Future later.

The first movie in the Back to the Future trilogy is a must own. The other two are alright flicks.

If you like horror flicks than you'll most likely prefer the Alien Anthology collection. Even though I wouldn't consider any of them horror movies.

I would say Back To The Future trilogy since I prefer that trilogy to the Alien series however if your really into collector packaging, buy Alien anthology first to not miss out on the egg set.

Go with what you can afford first and then be patient and wait for the right price for the other set. That's the wisest choice that you can make.

Alien Anthology. Insanely easy choice for me. Aliens was one of my favorite films growing up. I still find Alien terrifying and Alien 3 is enjoyable. While I don't care so much for the 4th I haven't really seen it since it came out and I am willing to give it another chance.

I will still be buying the BttF box set but probably not right when it's released.

Probably both but BTTF is a priority.

My budding movie-review blog. Do provide comments that would help me improve.

You can't really pick between these. Both series are totally opposite of each other and are great for different reasons. There is no easy way to say which one you should get. In the end, it's all going to come down to which genre you like more, an action oriented horror/sci-fi movie, or an action oriented comedy.
"Does the Blu-ray version of '.......' look better than it's DVD version?"

I'm so sick of this question. 99% of Blu-rays look better than their DVD counterpart. Period.
