Covenant for me!

I always saw these movies as Yin and Yang. One provides something the other doesn't but still be an amazing experience.
Only from sheer intensity and the whole body clenching experience I get from Covenant I would pick that one. It truly was an experience like no other movie in a long time (Since The Witch). I tend to praise movies that move me physically and Covenant did that in spades! I would rank that up there with many of the best movies that moved me like Black Swan, Take Shelter, Melancholia, and Antichrist.
Prometheus is no pushover either. It took a second watch to really love it (exactly like Blade Runner) and it has only gotten better since. The color and beauty is at 11 here instead of the dread and intensities like Covenant. Both are such wonderful films and I am happy to have the DVD for both!

Tough call dk , but I'd have to go with Covenant.
I've just bought the DVD and haven't gotten to watch all the special features yet.
My friends and I are planning a little Covenant viewing party this weekend.

I think this trilogy is going to be like Lord of the Rings and Star Wars once they're finished: each one building on the last. They can't really stand very well on they're own, rather they are 3 parts to one, whole story. You can't watch one without watching the rest
