    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 Hunting 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.

    Mr. Sunday Movies you are being way to critical on this movie it is not total shit like you say it is and your complaints about it are primarily nitpicks. This movie is by far one of the best Alien movies in quite a while

    I really love the review from 0:10-2:26. It's such a creative, unique, and fun way to do a movie review, and it doesn't impede the review's actual quality. The review also still effectively communicated its message during that portion of the review.

    Freaking bravo, man.

    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.

    From best to worst:
    Alien 3 Assembly Cut.
    Alien Resurrection.
    Being skinned and then being rolled in salt.
    Alien Covenant.
    AVP 2.

    I don't like how almost every infection in prometheus or covenant leads to being impregnated in some way. even treading on an alien dung-heap releases microbes that make you give birth to an alien.

    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.

    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

    remember Ridley didn't want to make an Alien movie, he just wanted to make a movie about ancient aliens. This failure is another example of studio interference and how the entire industry just chases $$$$

    • Shamelesscritique1

      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.

      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.

    I think overall Prometheus just doesn't mix too well with Alien. One is philosophical and introspective and the other is primal survival horror. I feel Prometheus should've been its own thing. Just like a trilogy of philosophical sci-fi films. Maybe with tones of horror. And then at the end of the third one maybe have a Xenomorph show up. But mixing the two in one film didn't really work for me. One or the other likely would've been a lot better.

    Fassbender made what would have been a mediocre film, a great film, in my opinion. He was the best part about Prometheus and he stole the show from the aliens in this movie.

    Instead of trying to constantly make new Ripleys they should just devote to the great character/actor that they have and is actually unique.

    The movie was fun but there were too many plot holes. Why was David suddenly sinister? Why didn't the scout craft land eight K from the location of the signal?
    My biggest disappointment was that the possibilities at the end of Prometheus, with the Dr. and David's head going on a journey, were novel and seemed to set up a much more esoteric film. David, suddenly with a body and bombing the Prometheans made for dazzling CGI but it would have been more interesting to see the Dr. and David's head meeting the Prometheans, et cetra.
