    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.

    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.

    The whole thing people have told me makes Alien good is that it's a horror but the main character isn't a fucking pussy. When I watched Covenant everyone was a pussy. Needless to say, I was disappointed.

    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.

    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

    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

    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.

      Also ash was the medical officer which is only one field of science, you got the pilot and navigators and two engineers etc I forget exactly who did what but I'm pretty sure none of em were uneducated "retards" they all had jobs that required a relatively high level of knowledge, skills and intelligence...or at the very least some basic common sense.

    • Shamelesscritique1
      Shamelesscritique1 1 month ago

      No he's basically the janitor and a glorified babysitter...neither david nor walter fly the ship or operate systems or do anything but walk around monitoring systems even when shit goes wrong he's not even the one who fixes it or even wakes up the crew to actually fix it...mother does that automatically.

      David did some studies while everyone napped and was supposed to serve as the old man's translator in prometheus but he went off script and started touching shit and experimenting with the black goo and the crew...but his official job could have done by a fucking laptop.

      logically though you're right it would make way more sense if all the dangerous and complicated work was actually performed by a crew of expendable androids or robots that don't experience fear, are less likely to make mistakes and actually stick to the mission rather than do something dumb like change course to visit a potentially dangerous alien planet endangering themselves and 2000 colonists etc...and that's just some of the many stupid things about the film that makes no sense.

      Shamelesscritique1 Pretty sure that's the exact reason why Walter was on board. He runs the ship, not the humans. Astronauts? You're thinking in terms of reality when this is a movie. Literally NONE of them were introduced as astronauts or scientists because they weren't. The scientists were on the Prometheus. Also same applies for the crew of the Nostromo, none of them except for Ash were qualified scientists.

    • Shamelesscritique1
      Shamelesscritique1 1 month ago

      Pretty sure they were the crew of a spaceship which technically makes them astronauts who by definition are scientists, some of them are even rocket scientists, point is they don't let incompetent retards crew operate and pilot spaceships...not now so why would they in the future?...also to build a colony on an alien planet I'm pretty sure you'd need engineers, botanists and geologists etc and you know what all those disciplines and fields of expertise are categorised as?...SCIENCE!...which makes em scientists.

    Alien Covenant is the case being made for hierarchy that doesn't need equality to be proven as moral which is the replication of the original absence of the original state of reality. 1979 Alien was the mistake of a metaphor believing in itself, and now Alien Covenant is the rectification of that mistake, symbolised by David. David's a villain because he opposes hierarchy by replicating hierarchy, yet the philosophical depth of the story is that replicating hierarchy as a way to oppose hierarchy was always necessary. Lastly, Alien Covenant is an allegory of the need to replicate freedom from anti. Original freedom was the mistake of self-awareness, freedom from anti was the mistake of replicated absence, and so the solution is the third state of replicating freedom from anti
