"Alien: Covenant" Honest Trailer

"Return to space for the movie that made the Alien franchise officially have more bad movies than good - Alien Covenant! "

'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.

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.

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 cannot believe they even have an article about the honest trailer.

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.

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.

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.
