    come on

    I know what you mean. Alien was already a tired joke of a franchise by the time Prometheus came out.

    Having not even seen the movie yet, and with each passing comment less willing to do more than visit the piratebay for it, I think the real problem with the latest Aliens movie is that the only thing it adds to the Aliens story is David killing off the last heroine and everything else on the planet as well for no real reason. And, since I now know the ending from the interwebs, I also know that it looks like yet another movie heroine will die for no reason in the next one. Apart from that, nothing. The usual Ridley Scott nonsense of utterly dumbfuck characters who neither use any of their future high-tech to survey, i.e. do some fucking reconnaissance before running around like gullible 5 year olds, or make any sensible decisions once they've already fucked up.

    Ridley, you shitcock, here's an idea: make the characters competent and the aliens as well. Make the fight hard for both sides. Here's an even better idea: give up on making films. Let others make Sci Fi. Maybe someone somewhere will make a script with believable aliens and a decent story. One can always hope.

    Alien is indeed a masterpiece.

    When you stop expecting michelangelo to produce something as impressive as the artwork in the sixteenth chapel for the 4th time, and just enjoy his other work for what they are - impressive and enjoyable in their own right. You might not come out as a David in your views of his other works.

    and an analogy isn't a literal comparison, but let's not get bogged down with things like that and who called the sexclub chapel the sixteenth chapel

    its a good looking movie 90% of the time but the CGI is crappy and there is no practical effect dribbly alien teeth moment which is like THE alien moment.

    Ridley Scott loathes CGI sets, he always have huge physical sets that has some CGI added post prod.

    The sets are amazing (apart from apparently the technology taking a nosedive between this and Alien.) The neomorph and Xenomorp CGI is just bad or maybe its because its so well lit you can see so much that their movement is goofy. go see it make your own opinions but man was i let down as an Alien fan.

    Well. The Covenant is a toppest of the top colony ship and the Nostromo is an old bulker. The technology difference might be explained by that.

    The Alien POV scene was offensive yes but it was only short..... as if that excuses it...

    Anyone who thinks that this says that David invented the xenomorph is an imbecile though. This planet is not LV426 and neither was the one in Prometheus. The Engineers obviously knew what xenomorphs were long before humanity even existed from the events of Prometheus. Whether the Engineers invented them or not hasn't been stated but it's possible they just found the black goo somewhere or maybe they reverse engineered it from xenomorphs they found.

    Did we watch same movie? You went to piss during the part where he boasts he crossbred results to reach the perfect form (one with facehugger) and only needed more hosts? We can argue details all day long while you're completely missing the overall point. Watch Kermode above, he has a better way with words and grasp of english than I do. Maybe this will make it clearer for you what I'm angry about.
