    alien isolation might be a good idea for an alien movie. a lot of [dumb] people disliked it as a game, but some people might enjoy it in a cinematic form. the next tomb raider movie is basically the tomb raider reboot for ps3/360.

    I watched 1 hour in and turned it off it triggered me so much.

    Is Dwayne The Rock Johnson the greatest actor of all time?
    Edit: Thank you very much for the movie reviews. You guys are very fair about it.
    Edit 2: AvP 2 starts out with the strongest scene. That kid with his dad, that's as
    good as the movie ever gets.

    U r right abt the time issue w the face hugger. In Alien John Hurt was in the med deck at least overnight. And then the thing fell off him and he was ok for awhile until dinner when the alien burst from his chest.

    The second alien movie Aliens is way overrated. It's average at best imo. It's like Michael Bay of the Alien franchise.

  • OutToLaunchPictures

    The scene in the tall grass was great

  • Muhammad al-Khwarizmi

    The novelization handles the idea that the Covenant crew can just breathe the atmosphere of the new planet better because scans were run beforehand but the way they just step out of the ship isn't vastly worse than the same thing happening frequently in various Star Trek series that so many people acclaim
    They should be more consistent

    Your "American Movie"esque "Ko-Van" made me laugh hysterically.
    I actually just watched that movie based on hearing you talk about it. Then Alien Covenant.
    I think the main problem is that they tried to include this in the franchise. Had it been it's own film- maybe better?

    I very much doubt the solar sails are ripped from star trek. Besides. Star wars did solar sails too. And its a viable technology

  • The Hat Man

    In my opinion, Prometheus is the more competently made film, despite it being dull as all hell, and Alien: Covenant is more fun as an entertainingly bad film.

    I think it would have been interesting if they found that planet and then they go down there and bring the alien board and then that's when everything hits the fan.

    The cgi on the movie is passable but in about 5 years it’s going to look outdated like Alien 3.

  • Fily Blunt
    Fily Blunt 3 months ago

    Didn't mind this one, but the "shock" ending was so obviously coming from about half way through, and they kinda set up the survivor chick from Prometheus to be the next Ripley type character but than it was just like oh yeh she's dead.

  • MrTact1

    mm, because of the end, it doesn't want you to see the movie again. The end is too predictable for me and I really hate ends like this.

    I've never seen the original Alien(s) movies but I saw prometheus and coveant and they were both great movies. Maybe If I saw the original movies I would think differently, but as their own stand alone movies they were both amazing.

  • hankheavy

    Better than Alien 3? No fucking way. Seriously, Alien 3 is a masterpiece and no, I'm not even joking. It closes the Alien trilogy perfectley! It's dark, depressing and it doesn't end with Ripley, Newt and Hicks flying off to La La Land to live happily ever after. Fuck that. Ripley had to give her own life to end the Alien race which is like one of the most ultimate sacrifices I've ever seen. Stop giving this movie shit cuz it doesn't deserve it. Give it another watch and try to be a bit more open-minded. And if you haven't seen the extended cut I highly suggest you do that now.

    this movie was garbage. Alien 3 and Resurrection were better. this movie lacks character arcs, logic, protagonist, story, and it's just overall really dumb.

    Fox and Scott fucked it up. They should've adapted Isolation into a movie, and had a new trilogy with Amanda Ripley.
    Isolation did what Prometheus and Covenant could never do.

    I did not enjoy the movie at all. Surprised to hear James Cameron was involved with it. I thought he was better than this. The casting in this movie was not very successful. I did not like any of the crew. Just as well most of them died lol

    Also serious comment: I feel like there is a lot more Giger in the prequels though. People are not talking about about the Geiger. Shawls dead body was a Giger panting. The art on the walls were Giger. They are giving us the Giger. That you have to respect that about the newer films.

    Covenant is the worst 100million production budget movie ever released - toppling even good ole Waterworld.
    The entire production pipeline should get reprimanded, hopefully in the form of anal penetration by David's flute.

    I'm pretty sure they do have warp technology in the Alien universe, it's just not as fast as Star Trek or Star Wars warp/hyperdrive.
    According to the Alien Wikia page (canon? I don't know), LV-223 is located in or near the Zeta Reticuli system, which is 39 light years from earth, yet we are told that the crew of the Prometheus was in cryosleep for less than 4 years, meaning they are traveling around 10x the speed of light.

  • boldbearings
    boldbearings 5 months ago

    The CGI was overused, it wasn't a horror film, the characters were too dumb to be allowed to have a driver's license, let alone space traveling...but my biggest beef was copping out of the Engineer arc. That suddenly pissed off titan kicking the cast's ass is what saved Prometheus for me, and Covenant just hand-waved it, like "Fuck your answers: Evil Android."

  • Tyo Syrchenko
    Tyo Syrchenko 5 months ago

    I really enjoyed to watch a new alien, I still think that it is much deeper than original. Also, It is a prequel so it is a not a xenomorph and IMHO CG is really bad as well as the fact of killing the main character from past movie beyond the screen.

    I wish they'd have a followed through with what they were doing with Dr. Shaw and the Prometheus thread. I hate when Studios drop a concept because there were a group of people who didn't like what they were doing. When you try to please everyone you end up with a train wreck of a movie that doesn't know what it wants to be. Which is what this ended up being.

    This movie left me completely disappointed ... why on earth is the main crew of a vital colonial ship made of complete idiots ?!!! They seem to have no brain, no experience, no formation... WHY ?! And for the rest of the movie, I'm quite on the same trend as James and Mike.
    This was definitely not a good movie. It was not shit, but man did they miss the gold by a landslide !

    Alien 3 was bad. Alien 3 Assembly Cut? Pretty damn good, for what it is. Covenant and Prometheus share the same faults, stupid ass fucking crew members, excluding two or three, everyone else is so painfully cliche in stupidity - ALIEN did not have this problem, so why does it need to be today?
