    You know, if your looking for a good time that involves your brain not functioning for a while, you could just do drugs or drink alcohol...

    Instead of making movies mediocre...

    Look, I'm really excited to see this tomorrow, but eh, I wish they kept the Xenomorph more mysterious. And the POV looks cheesy. Either way thanks Ridley for bringing it back!

    well I have yet to see, and regardless of difference of opinion in like and dislike. I find some films are good especially when someone rubbishes it. So anyone thinking of giving it a miss because of shit reviews, just go and watch it and make your own mind up on it. Now Personally I can't wait I don't think it starts till Friday here.

    I hate that they're showing the whole xenomorph right away. Kinda ruins the suspense and creepiness. A great creature feature shows a little of the creature was possible until the final confrontation. Simple formula: less is more.

    You'd think this was a render preview and they fixed the clipping in post. Nope! The alien's back spines/ pipes (I'm sure someone with some understanding of xenomorph anatomy has an actual name for those things) do the exact same in the final product. $111m budget right here folks, smh.

  • Obliteradon
    Obliteradon 2 months ago

    I didn't like Prometheus and from the moment they announced Covenant, I had a bad feeling about the movie. The more images I see from it, the more pessimistic I am. It seems to me like Ridley Scott has no idea (or no will) how to deal with his own mythology anymore. This scene, for example, I don't have the context (probably in the last 20 minutes though), but it looks poor. The first Alien movie (and the best) was scary because the creature was a real, tangible and yet unpredictable thing ; they managed to make terrifying a guy in a latex suit just with lightings and camera angles, it stayed mysterious, always in the shadows. Here ? 2017 in your face bitch, the creature is all CGI, all shiny and shit, and you can see it ANYWHERE and you can see all its moves and glances. To me, it looks like they are now more trying to appeal to the people who played Alien Isolation than trying to make a great, original, self-sufficient movie.

      +The Gentleman If you're friend tells you it's not worth it then they're lying. Sex is great. Especially if you're with a tight girl it feels out of this world same for her too. I find it helps me with my work as it's a great stress reliever and gives you a huge dose of happy chemical so you'll feel great. I'd say it's worthy as a badge of honour as to actually get with a great looking tight girl it's pretty difficult especially with how a lot of women are today. Not gonna criticise you or anything or insult you. I didn't have sex till I was 18 which is considered lame for some people nowadays so I'm not gonna make fun of you for still being a virgin you're right there's nothing wrong with it but trust me it's definitely a worthy activity to pursue.

You can pretend all you want that having sex is like a badge of honor, but in reality its as valuable as a Chucky Cheese token. Its so much fun seeing you struggle to make a comeback! Insulting another individual's virginity is like the oldest trick in the troll book.

      While I think some of their movies are great (Winter soldier and civil war) they have a lot more bad (Thor dark world , iron man 2 and 3) to mediocre. With the exception of Winter soldier they play their movies way too safe by following the same basic family friendly formula. They have way to many jokes in their movies to the point were it sometimes feels like i'm watching a parody.
      I never want Marvel to get the x-men because if they did we wouldn't get movies like Deadpool and Logan.

    • Kaleb Laakes
      Kaleb Laakes 2 months ago

      Looking at it carefully, I think it could be explained as the tubes being flexible, and bending to fit through the gap. Consider how terrible it would be if they were rigid, they stick out so far that the monster would have a lot of trouble getting through tunnels! :P

      It's clear that David has set up a small hair salon in his little cave and often dyes and cuts his hair in colours and styles matching the protagonist of his current favourite classic film. That's what makes Covenant so scary.

    • Cuntboy McCuntface

    • Kei Kurono

      Thats the shit thing with prequels that are made decades after the originals.
      The james bond movies bothered me as well. Casino royale suposedly being a bond origin movie, but they have the new aston martin and the world was set in modern world.

    • Cuntboy McCuntface
      Cuntboy McCuntface 2 months ago

      Ah I see where you're going, they should have kept it retro tech and industrial to a degree to tie in with what would follow rather than flat screen holographic tech. I could see why the Nostromo and Fury 161 would been run down but LV-426 would be fairly top of the line albeit lived in so yeah the tech doesn't make sense from a art and design standpoint.

    • Austin Vanderheyden
      Austin Vanderheyden 2 months ago

      +Cuntboy McCuntface But still though, that doesn't account for the colony on lv426. It was the state if the art operation, but still had old tech. Even in the last alien movie which takes place 150 years after alien 3, they had outdated tech. I personally think it was just a bad design joice impart by Ridley. This whole series feels more comfortable with 80's tech as I find it adds more suspense, ie the radar used to hunt the xenomorphs in alien and aliens, and how with the who biomechanical appearance of xenomorohs I find it just suits it better with 80's like tech.

    • Cuntboy McCuntface
      Cuntboy McCuntface 2 months ago

      Why would a tug have sophisticated systems like a state of the art colony ship? It would make no sense to do that financially for the simple task it was to perform. The age of the ship which for all intents and purposes was probably coming to the end of its service. It was a refurbished cruise ship retrofit to haul large cargo. Any tech like that would have been gutted out of the ship to reduce total mass and sold off or sold on. They "were blind on B and C decks" which Ripley says to Dallas in the first act. It's like fitting a beat up, 40 year old freight truck with the same tech that should be in a concept super car despite a few decades difference technologically.

      Im sure its been said, but i saw the film in the theater recently and it happens quite fast, but im certain they fold back in the final version. Id have to see the film again to confirm, but the whole animation looked better and the spines were in a slightly different position

    • Mr 2me
      Mr 2me 2 months ago

      +TheAuthorsFiles I think everyone is overeacting, it's such a small part in the film. Even then, I thought the scene was effective because it shows how agile the alien is, hence why the shot is so short. I don't know what you mean by 'retracting' its tubes, because in the final product the tubes are forced backwards as they come in contact with the vents perimeter, which is what I meant by 'peel', simple as that. You fuckers are just nitpicking as this point.

    • TheAuthorsFiles
      TheAuthorsFiles 2 months ago

      Regardless of whether they peel or not, the fact that people find the shot distracting proves it was a poor animation job. If the alien was actually supposed to be retracting its tubes, they could have made that evident a second before it descended, rather than right as it was going through the hole. Just one of many easy fixes they could have applied to this movie.

    • Christian Dannie Storgaard
      Christian Dannie Storgaard 2 months ago

      It's not quite that simple. Every Xenomorph shot in Alien 3 was with either an analogue composite of a puppet or a suit, but the cracking of the dome near the end of the film was a digitally animated composite and marked the first use of CGI on the creature. But yes, Alien: Resurrection was the first time the xenomorph was animated as a full CGI creature.
