    To be fucking honest, I find ¨Covenant¨way better than Aliens.

    If they want to keep doing these , they should let Netflix do them like a series and let the studios go back to the original formula or a story arc like in Alien Isolation with Ripleys daughter .

    Unfortunately The Last Knight is definitely not the last Bay Transformers film. But rebooting the series would be genius and this time, have the bloody Transformers look like the real Generation One Transformers like they should for the real fans. I don't know who should direct doe

    I just CAN´T understand why people hate this movie so much... I had such a good time with it and I love "Alien" and "Aliens" (I even like 3, 4 and really like "Prometheus" for doing something fresh with the concept). Good cinematography, good acting, good Action, great score and interesting themes with David and Walter! I enjoyed "Covenant" and I saw it twice in the cinema!

    I'm pretty sure I'm in the minority, but I'm closer to James on this. I liked the movie, but I do agree with a lot of others about the lack of helmets and the incubation times. I prefer the sci-fi elements presented in the movie over the Alien lore stuff, and it's probably better enjoyed if you don't know much about the franchise.

    The reason shit hits the fan so fast is they know that know that everyones attention spans are so small now compared to back in the day.

    I've seen millions of star trek episodes with them walking around on unknown planets without any kind of helmets or anything, why is no one ever complaining about that? Could anyone please explain this to me? And it's not just Star Trek, it's basically the entire science fiction genre. Why are people all of a sudden acting like this is the dumbest thing anyone has ever done in a movie?

      I also feel like Covenant was just the same story as Prometheus, it just has xenomorphs in it

    here's a hypothetical. What if Prometheus and covenant swapped places with alien and aliens, the methods of production swapped. Alien is made with cg and Prometheus with practical effects. Would Alien and aliens get the same complaints that Prometheus and covenant get?

    Best to stick with the original trilogy and pretend the series ended with Alien 3.

    After watching Prometheus for the 20th time and then watching Alien Covenant I can tell almost immediately that Ridley Scott's creative freedoms were finite. He was told to do things by people with money in suits. The people wanted alien not Prometheus so thats why this wasn't Prometheus 2 albeit it would have been 10x better than this shlock.

    All the aliens after the original were BS. The original showed you that a low budget B movie can be turned into an A film with good writing and cinematography.

    Dudes... this is not a movie review, you keep talking about the previous films and bitching about how you "don´t get the same sensations" with this new movie. I get that you two are nerds and know a lot about the old classic movies... but come on... you are getting old when you just talk and bitch about how things were good and now they suck. This is a good movie and worth watching.

    I loved Prometheus and was incredibly disappointed with Covenant. There was a huge setup at the end of Prometheus with the promise of going to the Engineer homeworld and getting answers, and they completely threw it away.

    this movie was sooo disapointing....i primarily got into the ALIEN series to learn the back story of the xenomorphs and who created them so when prometheus came out they did that for me and i ENJOYED prometheus even tho alot of people hated it...but then this movie covenent was supposed to tell us more about the engineers and tell us how they created humans - well this movie FAILED at all of that...this was such a disapointment this movie was all about david and HIS creating story and solved nothing about the back story about tthe engineers

    Did anyone else notice that Walter basically had the same voice as Bishop? At least it seemed like Fassbender was basically mimicking the same voice. I thought that was a really cool nice touch.

  • dicknavis00

    I like how James appreciated the cinematic creativity that the film actually had and talked about the different aspects of the plot vs. the subject matter and Mike was how he always is about everything...."it wasn't made at least 20 years ago so its fucking garbage."

  • tigertank06
    tigertank06 15 days ago

    So basically Alien: Covenant hit the margin for error on James' and Mike's scales? I guess that's better than Prometheus to Alien fans and the general public? I, for one, felt that it moved too fast. It was like out the gate aliens are popping up and killing people. There was no slow exposition in this unlike Aliens 1-4. I also don't like the fact that Ridley Scott seems to making David the creator of the Xenomorph race and not the Space Jockey's.

    so I thought this movie had some good scenes, and most of the problems were character motivations and rushing. I'd also say Prometheus also took more risks, but this at least gave us a few new things.

    and here's my ranking of the series (as of right now)
    1- Alien- A++
    2- Prometheus/ Alien 3 Rough Cut/ Aliens- B+
    3- Alien Covenant- B-
    4- Alien 3- C
    5- Alien Resurrection- C-
    6- Alien Vs. Predator- C-
    7- Alien Vs. Predator Requiem- F++

    Also one of my Uncles managed to sit next to Dwane Johnson on a flight once. no joke.

    Regarding the use of hypersleep (or whatever you want to call it) rather than interstellar warp speed in the "Alien" series, in the novelizations of the original films it's mentioned that faster-than-light speeds have now become the norm, but even at these speeds it can still take years to get from Earth to these distant parts of the galaxy, hence the use of hibernation.

    Tbh I don't knw what all the Transformers hate is about. Sure it may not follow the story directly but what Hollywood movie does?

  • Aron Jansson Nordberg

    But can we all agree that AVP Requiem is the worst "Alien-related" film of all time?

  • Aron Jansson Nordberg

    Just take out the Xenomorph shit. Just have it about David, artificial intelligent, philosophy, the engineers etc etc.

  • Joshua
    Joshua 17 days ago

    Alien; Aliens; Alien 3; and Alien : Isolation are the real Alien stories. I think the Alien franchise needs to end. At this point, I think there needs to be movie made in the in the same vein of horror suspense as Alien or the same vein of action horror as Aliens.

    3. Alien Covenant/Prometheus (Tie)
    4. Alien 3
    5. Alien Resurrection

    From best to worst in MY opinion... And James or Mike if you somehow see this PLEASE do a James and Mike Mondays playing Alien Isolation. Very intense survival horror that I know would be right up your alley!

    You guys missed a major plot hole. It's mentioned that The Covenant is not designed to land, so this MASSIVE ship, with 2,000 colonists, tons of supplies, equipment, even pre fab housing, has just one dinky little drop ship that holds about 10 people? How long would it take to get everything planet-side? 50 years? What if they have to abandon ship? What if the drop ship malfunctions? Would they just be stuck on the ship forever?? That's like a huge cruise ship having only one 10 person life raft.

    I get what you're trying to say about 'shit hitting the fan' too early in the movie, and I tend to agree with that, but you're not really catching the timing of modern theaters. When I watched the premiere in my town, there was this bunch of dyed noisy unrespectful not so young adults who were making all kinds of noise and comments, laughing at their occurrences, who couldn't do anything but shut up after 'that' scene happened. They had to remain silent in shock and awe because of the remarkful tragedy that just happened.

    Ridley literally disciplined those morons into sitting down and watching the movie. I'll be forever thankful for such a move.

    Aliens are not supposed to be gremlins jumping around trying to kill people. They are lurking in the darkness, waiting for the perfect moment to strike. One shot, one kill. That movie got it all wrong.

    the incubation time of the chestbusters is up to 7 hours with the exception of a queen. A queen Xenomorph gestation period can last several days to mature in the host before it will rupture for from the host bodies chest cavity like her drone counter parts I would argue that from the time of Oram's implantation to the point of which he is discovered by the remaining ground crew would land within a 3 hour mark the plus the amount of time it should take a spacecraft and shuttle to enter low orbit through a hurricane like ion storm would coincide with the established time frame. Kane's implantation would also land within this 5-7 hour mark from being discovered by his crew on the derelict engineers ship transported to the shuttle, boarding the Nostromo up to his demise in mess hall.

    I actually saw two of the prologues(tell me if there are more) including where they introduce the crew, I didn't really learn much more after I already watched the movie and I got bored pretty quickly so I shut it off before it ended and why they didn't include that in the movie is a mystery for me and a bad move for my opinion. But the other one with Shaw and David was pretty good.

  • Weyland Yutani

    I think lot of people and more important lot of the fan base took this movie the way of common sense serious and take more so bad in the scientist way too.

    This kind of thinking and understand it's a movie and it's sci-fi do not expect a scientist making a movie in hollywood. Lot of people already hate the movie because James Franco dies at the very beggining.

  • Ken Havens
    Ken Havens 23 days ago

    I think people are forgetting a huge reason Alien and Aliens were superb films...the actors in them were great and had incredible chemistry together. HIcks, Hudson, Apone, Vasquez, and of course Sig Weaver and Bishop. None of the actors except for maybe Fassbender were close to the caliber of performances the other casts produced. Sig Weaver is simply / was simply back then at the top of her craft and believable , grounded completely in her role. Her emotions were palpable from anger to despair to fright.

  • Ken Havens
    Ken Havens 23 days ago

    I think the acting in the original Alien film was unbeatable. Sig Weaver was a force to be reckoned with, I don't think there is another female lead as strong and as good at her craft as she is.

    2: Aliens
    3: Alien 3
    4: Alien Resurrection
    5: Alien vs Predator
    6: Alien vs Predator II
    7: Covenant

    This movie is on the same level as an Alien themed fridge magnet or perhaps a thermos, except that it is offensive to anyone who likes Alien and Aliens. And because it is even more offensive than the AvP movies it therefore belongs at the bottom of the list. And Prometheus isn't an Alien movie at all and doesn't count. It doesn't even try to be.

    I don't feel bad for characters getting themselves eating because they are doing incredibly stupid shit, leave that to the Walking Dead, they have mastered that technique for drama.

    Rather than suspense of fear all I felt was contempt for idiots that were about to get what they deserve for their poor choices and lack of disciple, not the kind of people anybody would put in charge for a colonization mission.
