Bitter/Sweet pre and post movie release


May-17-2017 10:36 PM

Not to whine, but I have noticed a different tone on the forum. Not bad but different. Now that the cat is out of the bag, things have largely gone in different directions from when we were anticipating, theorizing and sometimes just making up silly stuff to pass the time.

Has anyone else noticed this? I am pretty sure Prometheus veterans know. Thoughts?

I wasn't a huge Prometheus fan. I watched it many times. I had issues with it. However, when I put Prometheus and covenant together I like Prometheus more. I am part of the really like covenant crowd. I thought it melded the two movies kept the alien vibe without retreading everything to a point.


I really loved what David did to the captain and chuckled as he threw rocks at him to wake him up. The route Scott is going with ai and David is kind of skynet stuff. It's like he's a sentient being. Walter eluded to davids pyschotic side with the one note destroying an entire sympathy. Something went seriously wrong when weyland made David, obviously.


Im sure some people will like it while others don't. I personally hope the movie makes money so we can see more movies. I have a feeling when all of them are put together they will be epic when looked at as a whole.

I won't go into everything I disliked which is the majority of the movie to avoid stuff that has already happened after expressing my disappointment for Covenant. I went in pumped, excited and was thoroughly disappointed and let down. There were some cool things and cool shots and scenes but this just isn't the direction I want this to go. At this point I don't want anymore Alien movies, Ridley is just taking away from the legacy of his first film in my opinion.

Same here btw. I enjoyed it, but nowhere near expectations. Ship problems, arrive on planet, no helmets, problems, lander blows up, hang out in engineer city for the rest of the movie while never really talking about giant dead city, leave planet.

Why did the engineer try to kill everyone in Prometheus?

Why does the black goo do different things to engineers vs humans?

Why did David really kill the engineers?

Ugh.. I liked a lot of the movie but plenty of it also came off as a slasher horror flick. I am glad the pacing was not as fast as everyone said it was, but I have to agree that the Xeno scenes were just not that scary. I felt like "let's get through this action scene so we can see the plot advance a bit"

Aside from the ending there was no surprises. The trailer contained EVERYTHING.
