    Too much praise for such a lackluster movie.

    Prometheus is better than Alien Covenant, EASILY.

    I'm not a critic but I was disappointed tbh, it was good for wat it was but at the end I felt like a sigh "ugh that's it?" It'd be unfair to be wishing for more but I was disappointed walking out. Would I see it again? Yes but only if I was asked to with someone, I wouldn't go see it again for wanting to see it again but if I was asked to I would but only with someone cuz by myself I didn't enjoy it but again it was good for wat it was

    I don't miss an episode of collider, but I don't like when the crew shits on a movie so bad just cause they don't like it like if they could do better, they always speak about "it's my opinion " but when some one goes against their opinion they get up set and that's bull shit, coming from a guy that did a horrible job with the dead of superman what happen and john jumping from job to job

  • Jeff Duarte

    Covenant had its moments yes, but I'm definitely not going back to see this unoriginal dud a second time. This was a standard Alien film at best, that doesn't add anything new or interesting to the series. It also comes nowhere close to providing so many unanswered questions left over from the even more inferior Prometheus. Sadly, Ridley painted by the numbers on this one. On a positive note, McBride was great for sure, as was Michael Fassbender.

    I respect Johns opinion for the most but he has a very aggressive opinion on a lot of these reviews (in general) I prefer when they get the crew together

  • 2004mojo
    2004mojo 2 months ago +2

    I don't know what film you saw John but the Alien Covenant I saw sucked. However I now feel Prometheus gets better the more I watch it.

  • Wes Dinger

    Question for John Campea. I'm a big fan and have been listening since very early AMC days, when you were at AMC, you used to harp about how you were a very genuine person and that you would never do something you didn't believe in just because the show bosses said to, and one of those things was that you wanted zero profanity on the show per your own request not the bosses.... yet now that you have more freedom than ever you spew profanity in nearly every video I see you in. While I'm a huge fan and not at all bothered by your use of fowl language (seriously, big fan , seriously not offended) I am questioning all the ranting about how it was your choice to exclude profanity.

    in regards to comedic actors who do serious roles...have a feeling Danny McBride has the ability to do quality work like Robin Williams

  • J Boy
    J Boy 2 months ago +1

    I'm tired of David, Walter, Bishop. Lt. Data. Aida... Robo-Cop. It's supposed to be an Alien movie, not a cyborg movie. If I wanted a flick about A.I., I'd just watch BSG.

    The slash cuts and edits are Jeremy Jahm's signature due to his high energy presentation; it's weird when someone else does it; it looks like an attempt at an impression.

  • Alex Vallejo

    Just watched it today and WOW! I was blown away by everything. I agree, I thought visuallyl Prometheus was incredible, but the delivery of the story was not good. Covenant had me fully invested from the beginning. That introduction with David and Wyeland, damn! Alien is my favorite, but this one is def a close 2nd. I'm one of the few that wasn't crazy about Aliens. I like the horror suspense elements of Alien and Alien Covenant.

  • C Jones
    C Jones 2 months ago +3

    I can sum it up in one sentence:
    "Every Alien we've seen in all the Alien Franchise films we love are descendants of "Aliens" created by David?"

    It guts the Xenomorphs IMO. They aren't this ancient and mysterious danger lurking in deep space. They are rogue biological weapons made by an earth robot just a few decades before Ripley set foot on LV-426?
    Instead of man facing the unknown and horror of deep space it becomes another "don't make AI" and "man is his own worst enemy" trope bullshit.
    Worst of all, the Aliens aren't the real monsters! David is, and by extension, people are for creating him. Ridley must really hate humans or something.
    And the Engineers? A culture around billions of years (they seeded earth after all) but all live in one small city on one planet and are wiped out in minutes by their own BILLION YEAR OLD goo?

  • JD Vien

    I don't like this review format. Nothing against John but the roundtable-style (or panel style) reviews of old allowed for more than one perspective in one review. Thanks anyway.

    • breakingdan
      breakingdan 2 months ago

      Same thought here. I don't care for a 3 minute review or a spoiler free review either. There's really not much he even said and I would've liked to hear Dennis' comments as I've found my movie taste to be similar to his the most from the collider crew.

  • Ricko Thornton

      He did hit the mark on the right points . There is so many posts on this film even a 12 year old kid is reviewing the film and then there's another who put at least 6 different posts on this film . You can spend 3 hours looking at each post .Yeah , go to Angry Joe's review and skip the 12 year olds unless your really bored .

  • Nunya Bizznaz

    In no way is this "The Aliens movie we've all been waiting for". by any stretch of the imagination John, I can't even believe you said that. This movie was horrible. The Actors did a great job acting in a horrible film. This movie missed on all levels. It almost seems like someone paid you to say nice things.

    • Nunya Bizznaz
      Nunya Bizznaz 2 months ago

      Good rebuttal. The movie is far from good, and insulting me doesn't make it better. If this is the Alien movie you have been waiting for I feel sorry for you. Watch the first 1. That's the Alien movie we've all been waiting for. Stop making prequels. This movie is garbage and should have been named 'Covenant :Prometheus 2' or something.

      Alien Covenant was a real disappointment. I didn't expect it to do so bad.

  • Brian Costello
    Brian Costello 2 months ago +3

    I was disappointed, too much pre telegraphed , there was no doubt that David was bad in his opening response , how they dealt with shaw was crappy, I loved her character , pretty much did an alien 3 on the characters from Prometheus

    • Nova Lena
      Nova Lena 2 months ago

      Brian Costello I agree. AC felt like a really dumded-down version of Prometheus. It's like they decided to go the typical Hollywood route and add more characters (= more gore and death), less character development, less plot development, but more CGI to keep the audience visually entertained and maybe they won't notice that there's a really stupid story playing itself out here. Not quite as stupid as Alien Resurrection....but stupid nonetheless.

  • Dan Seery
    Dan Seery 2 months ago +1

    Prometheus had some flaws but it was about ideas and Hope. Cov was Complete Garbage- I have not walked out of a film since Garbage Pail Kids when I was 8 and I came very close to when they find (Spoilers) the Shaw Experiment - which by the way was NEVER EXPLAINED!!!!

    I have a new respect for David Fincher because he now is no longer the maker of the worst Alien film!

    And Sir Ridley did not have studio interfernce to blame - only his confused vision. I really think he needs to retire

    • 2004mojo
      2004mojo 2 months ago

      The more I watched Prometheus the more I love it. Yes it had some boo-boos  but the look of the film  is stunning. I  really liked the Captain and his 2 crew members and I was rooting for Shaw although she was a pain at first.

  • elijoshua eli
    elijoshua eli 2 months ago +5

    This movie is indefensible. This is Ridley Scott's version of pulling a George Lucas prequel on us. I can't in all honesty believe that anyone could think this movie is good. John, I'm sorry but I can't even comprehend how you like this scene: Here look in that egg, I know you just saw me making starry eyes at an alien that killed your crew-member, but please, look INSIDE THIS EGG NOTHING WILL HAPPEN.

    You really gave THAT MOVIE a pass? Jesus Christ.

    No people. This movie is utterly stupid. Ridley Scott is not capable of a making a good movie unless he has a great script, and I'm not convinced he knows what a good script is. I think it's just dumb luck that we ever get a good movie from him again.

    So sad.

    Just saw the movie it was okay, was expecting more out it. Same basic formula, 2017 version with a little philosophy thrown in. How the movie ended was very predictable. I must say, those neomorphs creatures were no joke.

      You mean the movie where a geologist gets lost in a cave that has just been scanned by floating orb scanners, and his companion, who is a botanist, decides to reach out and pet a vagina faced space cobra because he thinks it's cute? That movie didn't suck? You must LOVE Transformers.

  • Michael Gulick
    Michael Gulick 3 months ago +4

    I gotta say, I was monumentally disappointed in the film. The trailers gave away WAY too much, the story was painfully predictable, and a good chunk of the movie felt pretty much like a re-hash of Prometheus (which I also wasn't a fan of).

  • Speedy Gunz
    Speedy Gunz 3 months ago +2

    So, you got hooked into its "mythology" now? The mythology was destroyed. I just saw the movie and it was god awful. **Spoilers** The first half was intense and suspenseful, but once the space dust/spores were introduced it completely fell to pieces. There was zero tension, none. It became a mad scientist movie with David putting the xenomorph through its evolutionary cycle in minutes and the CGI of the milky-colored xenomorph was painfully obvious. Then, hey! let's throw in a flashback scene, that was so jarring and out of place, to show what happened to the previous inhabitants. I'd also submit that calling the contagion a virus is a misnomer. People were almost immediately disintegrated on contact. It was more like an extremely slow hydrogen bomb than a virus. A good chunk of the 2nd half was wasted on David teaching "himself" how to play a goddamn flute.  It was so rushed...  at least that's what it felt like to me. I understand you hafta stick to your guns, and say this was worse than Prometheus, but no, this was an absolute mess.

    Just come home from the movie, well I did not like Prometheus, but Prometheus was better than this.. whole issue would be avoided if the space morons took scafander to the ALIEN planet nobody set foot at, or do some god damn scan if there is, I don't know.. like super flue in air.. or brain sucking cece fly living there....but noooooo, they found the planet, jumped in transport and on their way to die they went in hoodies and jeans...

    I though the movie was Okay, better than Prometheus, but it still doesn't feel like an Alien film, something just feels weird.
    Alien 3 is a thousand times better than this movie, even Life was a better Alien film than Covenant. The CGI creatures looked fantastic, except for the 2 times the Xenomorph was up close, which looked awful.
    Nobody does anything “quite” as stupid as in Prometheus, but people still wandered off on their own and trusted David to look inside an egg, right after he had just told him that he created these things that just killed one of their crew members... what the fuck are you thinking! I loved the parts from the original score, it gave me chills.
    The scenes with Walter and David were incredible and David is quickly turning into one of the greatest movie villains. At the same time as I hate him, I understand where he's coming from and find his way of thinking to be almost beautiful in a way. Covenant explained everything about him and it makes Prometheus a better movie, as for the rest of the characters... yeah, they were kinda flat and uninteresting.
    I still think Prometheus should never have been connected to Alien universe, not knowing who the space jockeys were, why they were transporting all these eggs, and where the eggs came from, helped make the original -79 movie feel so much more "Alien".

    I surprisingly liked Alien: Covenant quite a bit. Visually it was great, the score was great and I found the story to be rather interesting. It lacked in character development and wasn't the best script, but overall I liked it. 7/10 for me. However, I still prefer Prometheus.

    • Saotome Alto
      Saotome Alto 3 months ago

      They're not so heavy on horror side of i think they're more sci-fi base. Both Prometheus and Covenant might not spoon feed the viewer the answer , but they definitely answer some of them and open for many more theory , both of them might have some flaw such as weird/stupid behavior of scientists so yeah i agree that they're not as good as "Alien" , but at least i think it's still better than "Aliens" . The concept in both films are better in my perspective.

    • Taiken
      Taiken 3 months ago

      I think its mostly because they don't like how it compares with the other Alien films (mainly the first two) in multiple ways, but inparticular the plot, tone and script. It drifts away from them a lot and many fans were after something closers to Alien & Aliens. Now if you take Prometheus as a stand alone film, I think more people would be willing to be more positive about it.

  • Nuclear Rampage
    Nuclear Rampage 3 months ago +2

    I never saw Prometheus but I remember around the time it came out the general consensus was that it wasn't very good and was massively underwhelming. In the years since I haven't heard many people talk about it and assumed it was forgotten about.

    But it seems as though popular opinion has completely changed since then. So at what point was the film reevaluated? When did it suddenly become a beloved, untouchable classic to the point that somebody merely stating their dislike of it would provoke mass outrage as seen in the comments section here?

    • Nuclear Rampage

      I heard so many negative things that I decided not to bother but I might give it a shot now. Just find it curious that public opinion seems to have changed so much in a relatively short time

      Prometheus isn't being re-evaluated or re-appraised, otherwise this film would have not been called Alien Covenant. The only reason why it's being mentioned is that this film is a loose sequel to that film, except the whole Prometheus idea has pretty much been abandoned in favour of the Alien mythology.

    "Prometheus sucked".. Try saying something more along the lines of "I didn't like Prometheus". It's your opinion not fact

    I actually really enjoyed Prometheus but I understand why some people don't like it. Glad to hear the positive reviews on Alien: Covenant.

    There's a 4 hour "making of" documentary in the 4 disc Prometheus Blu-ray set. Ridley Scott was involved in everything from the first draft of the script to actually drawing the monster designs himself with a pen. He brought in HR Giger to go over concept art, he made constant notes in the script, shot down many ideas and he had final approval over every aspect of Prometheus. He sat in on costume fittings and set building as well. Ridley Scott had a George Lucas level of involvement with Prometheus, so blaming Damon Lindelof is a worn out fanboy crutch. I personally loved Prometheus, and seeing Scott's passion back in the Alien universe is invigorating.

    My main complaints with Prometheus are that they sent an intergalactic mission, to find the creators of the human race... And they sent a bunch of expendable guys that looks like ran away from Gotham Asylum... Not to mention "Look, there is O² here. Let me take my helment off! =D" as if there are no other toxic factors.. Overall I kind of liked it, didn't LOVE it and didn't hate it.. But I heard from some that the Alien Covenant has this same flaws, that people there are expendable and they manage to not give a f* to safety protocols, etc..

      The crew did stupid things? Kind of like John Hurt reaching out and touching an Alien egg in the original Alien? Or the crew splitting up to find the Alien on the ship instead of staying together? Or chasing a cat through the ship instead of getting into the escape shuttle? Alien movies are high end slasher films with a beautiful asthetic. I loved Prometheus and Covenant looks amazing.
