Where is this "Alien Covenant" is a BAD movie narrative's ground zero? It certainly is NOT the popular commentary, given the vast majority of positive reviews. You'd think that A:C was truly "Ishtar" or something like that....jeez.

 I disagree a lot with this trailer but it's popular to hate on A:C.

The honest trailer is biased as f*ck. Anyone can see that.

I think it's funny.

And yes, I liked the movie. Saw it 4 times in cinema.

'And yes, I liked the movie.'

Guys, Daszkowski likes the movie, that's why he shares links to youtube videos which bash the movie - similarly to his 'reassessing' topic. Totally plausible behaviour, isn't it? :D

We are talking about the honest trailer makers who think that the GitS anime takes place in Hong-Kong. Zzzzzzzzzzz... :)

Seriously, August 15th is close (Blu-ray), that's why the similar posters are so active and do everything against Covenant. After August 20th they'll disappear.

No much need for an "honest trailer" when a movie is such an easy target for parody. Funniest part was Batman on the beach.

I certainly can't stand Covenant but I'm happy people here are enjoying it. What inspires me though is how social media can now force Hollywood to make better movies, imo. Sure, things like this and others can stir the pot for a flame war. Most would agree a good film can't be held by critics or naysayers. Alien was panned but the crowds were around the block opening night for days. When a box office soars or slumps after the opening week it should speak to us about quality of the product.

 But that's the thing though, Covenant isn't bad. It's misunderstood. The complaints in this "Honest" trailer are baffling and very slanted. "The go off course for a John Denver song!" It was an S.O.S.. "They violated quarintine protocols" Faris went in there to try and save Karine, the same way Dallas and Lambert were trying to break it for Kane. "Why does Oram listen to the evil robot!" Oram demanded answers and David gave them to him. Aside from the questionable Neomorph behavior, Oram had no real reason to see how evil David was. The list goes on but it's tiring repeating yourself into a void insistent it's a bad film. People just wanted a more happy Prometheus 2 with Shaw but instead we got a dark one with David.

Lawrence of Arabia - And their key phrase is: 'stupid characters'... They always start with that. The strongest point of the phantom list of complaints.

Wow, this guy who makes these "honest trailers" must be real fun to hang out with. I'm sure everyone's deeply envious of his ability to be unimpressed by things.

And it's a real pity he wasn't part of the Covenant away team. I'm sure even without the benefit of hindsight (or any exposure to A L I E N universe lore) he would have made all the best decisions in never before encountered situations.

Again, the fandoms for AC is understood but in the same token, fans of the series such as myself, despise this entry because the script was subpar and the execution even more subpar.  Also, in domestic and foreign box office receipts (added with marketing costs), the movie did not turn a profit, but since it is near breakeven; it will start bringing in revenue in a year or two.

I don't know why fans gt so butthurt by honest trailers. They're supposed to nitpick and be funny. No one is taking this as a serious review of covenant overall.

they were sort of right about the xenomorphs in daylight but the rest, I totally dissagree with. i liked alien covenant alot and i think that if they don't like the philisophical aspects dealing with a.i, They can go watch something like predator or friday the 13th.

Aggrieved honest-trailer fan, take heart. None of this is serious.

Movies, movie insults and movie insult insults are all luxuries people indulge in for entertainment. Both sides are nitpicking and being funny.

No, I think it's pretty clear certain users on this site are taking this "review" very seriously since they're posting how the points are wrong, rather than just laughing it off.

I actually found it pretty funny as well. my instinct is to just autamaticly get defensive when someone calls any of the alien movies bad. that is exept when they mention alien resurrection.

Yeah? Maybe that's what floats their boat. Movies are thought exercises and some people like to debate. Coming from a family of lawyers (but thankfully not one myself) - trust me, arguing is how some people unwind.

It might not be your cup of tea but, we all like when scary movies make us fake-scared. Some of us like when controversial movies make us fake-angry or fake-adversarial.

Still, don't mistake any of it for serious. None of us (including you) would be be here engaging in the discussion if we weren't all having a good time of it.

Yeah well...Beethoven only produce 2 great symphonies(out of 9)so he's in the same boat as Alien series, Star Wars and Star Trek(2 out of 13?!)! Lol!

Only insightful Youtube commentators can figure anything out.

Seems like you cannot talk negatively about Covenant on this forum, or you going to trigger a lot of sensitive people.  I do not care.

You don't need to be sarcastic to show dislike for a movie. I am fine that some people don't like the movie but it depends how people express it. People can describe their dislikes like "I don't like it because XYZ" but it annoys me if when they are like "this is so bad LOL! " or "I hate it bla bla bla". There are more intelligent ways to express a dislike for something, that is just how I look at it.

About Alien: Covenant

Alien: Covenant Movie

Release Date:

May 19th, 2017

Plot Synopsis:

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS -- and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world -- whose sole inhabitant is the "synthetic" David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
