Saw ALIEN: Covenant last night. Slightly disappointed. I really wanted to see more of the Engineers and their society. All we got to see was a landing "platform" of sorts. Which was neat looking, but do they not use that tech elsewhere in their society? Makes me wonder if the technology was stolen. It could mean the Space Jockey in ALIEN wasn't in a suit.

 Besides that, I thought it was a pretty good movie. Not as suspenseful as ALIEN. Had more of an ALIENS feel to it. The characters were a little more like-able than the ones in Prometheus.

 But the question I have now is this: Is David8 the anti-Ripley? He seems like he fills the opposite role of what Ripley was in the original series.

 Any thoughts?

I despise the Engineers.  A story about the Engineers will not be an Alien movie unless its humans fighting the Engineers and Aliens at the same time.

Yes Colonial Soldier!  That's the movie I want!  Sorry I forgot to reply to you on the other thread

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion.  I watched Androids blow and finger each other's flutes.

Here is a good article on how David is becoming the focus of the series.

Thanks for the article.

Nobody else wanted to see more of the Giger-esque biomechanical tech?

"I really wanted to see more of the Engineers and their society."

This is a consistent theme in the majority of reviews I read. Wake the !@#$ up, Ridley and Fox.

IMO: David = The perfect AI = The perfect rationality = Lucifer (lightbringer)

I think the Engineers was interesting... seems Ridley and FOX felt fans and the Franchise needed the Xenomorphs instead and they needed to keep David in the Franchise however..

Those beings on Paradise/Planet 4 did seem a bit different and the way they reacted to the Ship and how they dont seem to have much Technology... does leave it open for Ridley to pass them off as a different race, or even if they are Engineers the clues seem to point to them being servants to another race.

There is hope the Space Jockey could be another Alien race, but it appears at the moment its going to be either a Synthetic or Human... But things could change due to reactions to AC.
