    Watching this video and seeing all the clips from Prometheus and covenant that I don't recognize, I feel like I've missed two lengthy directors cuts.

    As soon as you said that the movie is "fine", at the same time pointing out all the stupid plot points and how predictable all the twists are, i already knew this movie would suck for me. And it did.

    I'm so disappointed in you Mr Sunday Movies, Prometheus was an awesome film. I don't get what the disconnect is? I mean the incredible amount of lore that movie adds to the Alien universe is astounding, and it's just a fun movie with people who are great to watch on screen. I don't wanna type an essay on it right here, bc let's be honest, probably 2 ppl are gonna read it if I do, me and probably someone who didn't like it and want to be an asshole and shit on someone else's enjoyment of it bc they just didn't understand the movie and they're mad that other ppl did. That's usually the case with this movie. As a fan of the whole Alien franchise, it's probably my 2nd favorite of the bunch. However, Alien Covenant was a huge disappointment. Not bc of unanswered Prometheus questions, but bc of the choices to make David a maniac, kill shaw, and the shitty way they answered questions with more questions that make both make no sense. And everybody always bitches about how dumb the characters acted in Prometheus, I disagree for the most part, but if you wanna see characters acting stupid, Try Covenant. And Prometheus/Alien Lore aside completely, it just wasn't a good or entertaining movie. Very disappointed. Prometheus is a great prequel, but I have to accept I will never get answers, like what is the black goo? How did they create something so insane that can create life that takes on features of its sacrificial host? Or what was the electric sap David found on that door? I also wanna know why the first Engineers were awesome and all looked identical, but then back at their home world, they were all different. And then why did the black goo fly around when david dropped it on them, when it was supposed to be the same unevolved goo we saw in Prometheus, and why did it just kill them instead of mutating them. You'd think Ridley didn't even care to make sure the lore matched up.

    You know what? Space Marines. That's what I'd see. No more prequels that twist and make the original Alien movie absolutely convoluted and absurd. Just give me a good old action horror about people with big guns fighting perfect killing machines.

    Shouldn't they have just created a high-ish concept Scifi film that takes place (and I Hesitate to use this term) but Alien universe where the film doesn't relate to the aliens at all but has some other dangerous thing that wipes out the crew. They could just steal ideas from other Scifi films. I guess you would just call it Covenant.

    Damn. Thanks for saying all that. This movie is a true exploration in stupidity + Ridley Scott trying to pay his bills. First attempt to watch it was less than 15 min and a second attempt with below zero expectations was 50 minutes. Damn - as if we aren't having enough stupid people in our daily lives already.

    One thing I never understand about the alien movies:
    If the androids in that universe are so powerful and so superior than human. Why don't humans have any cyborg enhancement? That's just doesn't fit the Sci-Fi logic, right?

  • The Singapore Ghost Club

    I rather be exploring planets in Starbound rather than this stupid a-shit of a movie.

  • Brandy Beavers
    Brandy Beavers 2 months ago

    Viruses and bacteria adapt to particular physiologies. You can't just take a virus that has evolved to infect dogs and get it to infect a human!

    They did mention that the wheat was astronomically improbable. They were there looking for a human on that planet.

    And they trust David because he was built to serve. Oram has suspicions but he basically accept David's programming on blind faith. Daniels and Walter are the only characters that seem to see through David as more than a servant robot.

    It's fine that you dislike the movie. It's fine that your work consists of sometimes grilling movies. But a lot of negative Youtube reviews that try to poke holes instead of discussing how the movie was made or even giving a single attempt at trying are just so... passe. I mean, I'll still watch your videos. I'm not gonna be like "Unsubscribe!" because you think something opposed to me in a few scenarios.

    And fair enough on the space suits. Everyone can't really be expected to know that the end of War of the Worlds is bullshit. But even then, this review is... Not great. The title, the tone, the nitpicking. It's all a bit neophyte. You probably won't read this in this month old video but I just want to say that I think you can probably do better than this.

    And sometimes, questions are better than answers. Leaving things unexplained isn't the same as having an incomplete movie.

    I FINALLY saw this (cos a friend wanted to see it), and after all the terrible reviews I've seen, was surprised to not have a terrible time. It's not great, but it's reasonably entertaining. I thought it was better than Prometheus, if only because there was a bit more danger and action. But in terms of quality (coherent plot, decent characters) it's probably still below AvP.

    Worst movie of all Alien franchise, including bad Alien 4.
    Bad concept, story, characters and their characterization, unrealistic, dumb and well... why say more?
    Ridley Scott just killed the Alien franchise with a really bad movie.

    I hope someone would do an ALTERNATIVE "Alien Covenant" movie that truly continues the mystery raised on Prometheus. Prometheus really deserves a nice sequel.

  • Shamelesscritique1
    Shamelesscritique1 2 months ago

    Ya know what's scary?...thrilling? or at least has some tension or suspense?
    When the cast of characters are generally intelligent, competent and behave in a consistent and understandable manner when they find themselves in a dangerous situation through no fault of their own or any lack of basic common sense on their part.

    The situation simply and believably shouldn't and couldn't be that easily avoided...
    It's scary when people do the right and logical thing given the situation and in turn it's all the more terrifying when their competence and intelligence rarely helps or at the very best just prolongs what seems to be their gruesome and inevitable fate.

    It also helps if they're likeable and interesting or at least have some defining character or development...hell the audience can generally get behind a unlikeable arsehole if they've got some redeeming feature or compelling trait.

    Practically every character in this movie was literally too stupid and bland to live...the whole film might as well have been a long winded montage of dullards walking off cliffs because they weren't paying attention, accidentally shooting themselves or each other, I'm surprised most of em didn't choke to death because they accidentally swallowed their own tongues or died because they forgot to breath...they're that stupid and incompetent, not to mention clumsy and uncoordinated.

    Was the point of the movie to get the audience to share the same contempt and disdain for the humans as the villain david?...if so it did a good job.

    I gave a  thumbs down, NOT because Alien: Covenant wasn't a big steamy turd, but because you  had the  audacity to say Danny McBride was great. Wow... No one was "great" in this film.   MF was good, but if there was anyone who was the worst in this was McBride.

  • Flynn Rider

    The aliens were created by the engineers from the black goo. In the novelization it states that he got the eggs idea from projects, idea and prototypes from the engineers archives. David felt that the engineers were inferior and used their foundation to perfect the aliens through experimentation.

      The martian was excellent...the guys a great cinematographer, he still attracts and knows how to get good performances from great actors but it seems like he's lost any and all ability to judge whether a script is good or bad.
      The old guy needs a fucking writing chaperone, a dedicated editor or competent assistant or something to pick his material and make sure he sticks to it.

  • Captain Harlock
    Captain Harlock 2 months ago

    As someone who is only a mild fan of the Alien franchise,(first two excellent Aliens is my favorite, 3 terrible, 4 was almost so bad its good) I'm very disappointed as to where the series is headed. I completely skipped Prometheus and I was right in doing so. It was almost better when they where thought to be made by the Predators, that would have been interesting. But no some alien and an android basically just spliced stuff together and its completely random.

    So are the AVP movies not cannon anymore?

  • rodster6
    rodster6 2 months ago

    Of all the stupid things in this movie, it's biggest crime is the TERRIBLE origin they give the Xenomorph. Not that it needs an origin at all. But ot make it part of this cartoon supervillain plot of Davids is just awful and shits all over what was good about the original.

    Hello everyone! I review films and books that I feel are underrated and go a little under the radar. Despite Alien covenant being a huge success financially, it is seen as a strong instalment in the franchise but not much else by most. I feel it is as strong and possibly one day as iconic as the first two alien films. If you are interested in quite a different take on this movie then please take a look at my channel and tell me what you think.

  • MerlosTheMad
    MerlosTheMad 2 months ago

    Myup, the premise behind both prometheus and covenant should have never been considered for the big screen the way it was. Either explore the story of the Aliens, or explore the story of the engineers, but if you try to do both you get what we got here, a big mess and a bunch of crap that's neither interesting nor satisfying.

    And to each their own on this part, but while I'm amazed some people have been defending David being the aliens creator, I really wish that covenant had at least considered some of the inconsistencies this created with the other movies. The past murals of the Xenomorphs, how he made the eggs without a queen, etc etc etc.

    I'm so tired of the hand waving hollywood tries to lazily pull just to get what they want on the big screen rather than a solid story.

  • TheDonBarracuda

      Actually aside from understandable disbelief and arrogance that led to their first disastrous encounter where they simply underestimated their enemy they "reacted" pretty consistently and believably according to their characters once the shit hit the fan...the exception being the drop pilot landing and opening the door so the dumb ass could take a piss.

      In short Cameron's space jar heads were nowhere near as retarded as the supposed intelligent scientists from prometheus and covenant.
