    Agreed 100%, I liked the movie but Joe makes really good points. I read a comment below, it said that you have to have a "suspension of desbelief" in Alien I didn't had to do that!!! Alien was amazing!!!

    Agree 100%. Prometheus IMO was the shittiest part sofar, worse than AVP Requiem. Covenant beats them with ease. Even Ressurection looks like masterpiece now.

    Angry Joe.
    Totally agree with you. I am a fan of the ALIEN & Predator franchise, i even wrote a novel based on the AvP2 video game...
    The movie Covenant literally destroyed the xenomorph lore, especially from the side of the Predators...i think you know what i mean. And i do not mean the films...more like the books and comics....
    I love the two creature since i was 6, now i'm almost 30...but Covenant, from the director of the first movie...thanks, but not. I'd prefer to watch the first 2 movies 160.000 times thant watch Covenant again.

    I agree with all what you say - they have fucked up the mystery of the alien, I hated it and fast forward the movie it to the end just to get over it. No way am I going to watch it over again as I did the previous ones. I am glad I did not waste money to see it in the theaters.

    Prometheus was far better even with the plot holes and idiot scientists. I was hoping Shaw would eventually meet or follow up to another planet with Engineers and unravel the mystery of the black goo that was once used as a means of creation and then for destruction. Alien Covenant was stupid and shallow.

    I really disliked the continuity problems with the xenomorph gestation. It is way too damn fast and the aren't supposed to pop out fully formed in miniature size. What happened to the "larvae" stage and the molting....?? Joe's comments about the timeline of the original Alien being jacked is not correct. This movie takes place at least 20 years before LV426. There is still time to tie it together. However, if David is going to take the Covenant to Origae-6, then we lose another 7 years in the timeline. I am still holding out hope that we get an explanation for how the Engineer ship gets to LV426 with a cargo of eggs. I'm guessing that the next movie (Awakening?) will be more like Aliens. David has a whole ship of colonists to use as hosts. I'm also hoping we get an explanation of how the Xenos reproduce in the absence of a Queen and/or how the Queen is produced.

    I'm sorry to say that I agree with you. I was very excited to see the movie, but after I saw it I couldn't help but feel the movie was just 'alien porn'-- you know, like 'gun porn', just a gratuitous excuse to show some new footage of an alien without any substance.

    The characters are so stupid to let Ridley get our money for nothing. The reasonable character is obviously ignored by the stupid characters to give Ridley an excuse to get the rest of the stupid ideas out without having to do any work.

    Blomkamp's script sounded like bad fanfiction. It was no loss.

  • JTriffic

    You're exactly right about the tropes. I'm not a huge Alien fan, so all the lore and previous movies aside, it was the tropes alone that destroyed the movie for me. Also it was not even the slightest bit scary. I was hoping to be shitting my pants the entire time, like I did watching the first movie. Instead I was just chuckling every time someone said, "I think I heard something, I'm going to check it out.".

    It wasn't too bad just watchable . I was disappointed that Engineers where killed of and the Xenomoprph was created by David (I'll do the fingering) the Android. It felt like Ridley was constantly apologizing for Prometheus. We probably wont get Awakening now anyway.

    The creature you refer to as "Neomorph" in Prometheus is called "Deacon". The tall white aliens from Covenant are the actual Neomorphs, whereas the "Xenomorph" in Covenant is not the traditional Xenomorph. I would refer to it as "Protomorph", due to the fact that it looks slightly different. (no real exoskeleton, slightly different teeth etc.) Xenopedia however refers to it as Xenomorph, so I guess that it is just some sort of alteration.

  • Bad Request

    i enjoyed the movie but i do agree that the characters were poorly set up. i didn't care about any of them. and they killed off captain james franco before he got to be in the movie. that was a facepalm move in my opinion. the only character i cared about was david xD even though he was the insane homicidal android. i get the timeline is getting confused now, but i'd like to judge the product as a whole and we don't know yet where ridley scott is heading with this yet. maybe it's something worth it, maybe it's gonna be stupid. i dunno. so i'll wait to see where this leads up to. about the couples thing, i didn't think it was a bad thing, if it were properly set up. in the original Alien there was a similar scene, although it was cut. there's a deleted scene out there of a conversation between ripley and dallas where it's implied they kind have a thing, though not relationship serious. ripley just says something like "i'm stressed. i need to relax" and starts coming on to dallas. basically she says let's have sex, but dallas isn't in the mood.

  • deplorable mediocre

    Thought it was good for what he was trying to achieve - more terror. Bear in mind we're talking about rabies and aids here though. It's Alien. It did the job I expect from Scott - to be scared. Aliens scared me when I was young but when you grow up, it's not scary - it's just badass monsters in space. We needed something more - terror. Prometheus was a whole bioweapons world by something so sinister it would put any Earth based military program to shame. It was scary because it was terror scares. And he took it up a notch again with Covenant. The ultimate betrayal by technology. The more evolved form of aliens created by David and unleashed followed by our heroine left in the clutches of David himself. Horrible. No doubt the follow up to this movie will contain some scene of an alien drooling over her dead remains with David smiling on. I'm not sure where he'll go next, but it will be dark and warped no doubt. It's sick really. Well done Scott you're a sick man, lol.

  • Bayou Boy Entertainment

    Don't worry this isn't Prometheus don't worry Prometheus 2 will still happen this is different they said......if you saw the movie nah man we ain't gettin that Prometheus 2. This movie just seemed lazy and predictable also i need that James Franco job, just keep cashin those checks James lol.

    Lazy writing because that was clearly Walter not David at the end I know we saw David go for a knife but when Walter is running for the ship and pauses he has the same cut in his face and NO nails hole under his chin like David did when the girl stabbed him. So clearly it was Walter! And NO he didn't heal or patch himself before he left or switch bodies bullcrap there was no time and David was messed up gurgling synthetic blood. I was so disappointed with that!

    Ever since Dan O'Bannon and Ronald Shushett (original writers/creators of Alien based on Giger's art) were removed (or retired from the series) it has gone downhill.

    Ridley Scott's ideas for Alien (1979) that were NOT used (Thank God) included Kane floating in space and bumping into a window for a cheap jump scare while Dallas and Ripley were having sex.

    He was talked out of that by the writers/producers who explained that outer space is not like water where what is jettisoned will come floating back at random to a ship that was moving forward.

    Basically, Joe, now that Ridley HAS control over the franchise... expect "Kane's body floating by windows" from now on.

    Meaning Ridley Scott has finally jumped the shark.

    Too much emphassis on ACTION and this weird-ass philisophical crap with androids (flute teaching... FLUTE teaching? really?) is what Ridley will continue to pound into each film he does from now on. I think he's purposely screwing it over now.

    There's no other reason. Ridley hates the franchise and wants to bury it. btw... Alien 5 (or rather, a proper Alien 3 with a different name) is now ... G O N E

    Ridley cancelled it last month.

    He's doing HIS film about David colonizing a new planet.

    I didn't know there was so much material on YouTube that was part of the movie . perhaps Scott intended it to be this way? Because then you could care more about the characters but if u didn't know then it's like who/are u?/ I wish I knew eonibcoukd have watched the extra stuff first! Anyways that said it's true i wanted to see the city of the engineers and some of that mystery and tech and their thinking and way of life and yet it was destroyed by David meh! I did like David alot and his creepy experimentation and the art of his work and all that was cool however the movie was really suposento be about the lore of the engineers and their city and perhaps if the protagonist reprised her role and lived with David as 2nd class citizens trying to learn more about the engineers and then aliens come and battle or are tweeked with by the engineers like David did and not by david and if the characters where mor interesting u would have had a massive hit. Instead it focused too much on the generic bad stuff the Narrator of this video talks about. Maybe they can go back to another engineer planet and do it right in the next film. But add more interesting characters and character depth.

  • Jon Snow
    Jon Snow 11 days ago

    The reason we got the version of alien: covenant that we did is because of how many people very loudly and obnoxiously complained about Prometheus. It seems like the writers had to drop aspects of Prometheus from this movie to make more directly alien related. Now that people are complaining loudly and obnoxiously about Covenant it seems that Alien awakening will have to drop all originality to make a movie entirely based on fan service. So maybe praise the good elements of this movie such as the suspense and the fact that it has the balls to follow the villain rather than the hero. Also the protomorph is what you referred to as the xenomorph which means that the version of the classic alien we see in covenant is not a traditional xeno. So while David is clearly involved in the process, he hasn't fully created the xenomorph. There are still movies to come so why don't we all put on our big kid pants and wait for the answers before jumping to conclusions and inadvertently destroying this franchise we all clearly love.

    I liked Covenant better than Prometheus simply due to more bullshitery in the latter. Donut of Doom, disappearing characters, crappy old man disguise, gentle-innocent-looking alien going hostile not once but twice, unused plot threads, sudden recovery of abdomen muscle strands, magical spaceship flute, balloon buttons... oh there is a lot more.

    The two thing in Covenant which really make no sense is David winning the duel, if they indeed finished it and the second Xeno. Where the fuck was David hiding that one?

    you know what really sucks the original film you had characters like Kane who I loved and did not want anything bad to happen to but then he had an alien come busting through his chest and it was shopping as all hell in this you just have people dying that you didn't get to know and we're just sort of expecting to die like Ash and Parker from the original Alien films were very strong because Parker didn't die till later so they broke the mold on that one and Ash turning out to be an Android was a real shock because if you go back and watch the movie again you can see all these subtleties that he does that are just a human you have nothing like that in Covenant and it's a shame.
