Chestburster---well, that one just can't be forgiven. That, and the Proto was just a bit "too" 4 legged and alien 3 like. BUT, back to that monstrosity: WHY? WHY? WHY? Was it done that way? Why?

I don't know, man. The film's ONLY (and I mean ONLY ) good part was the Walter and David scenes. The rock throwing scene was also very interesting (just before the chest burster is about to burst out of Oram). Other than that, everything I hated. The landscape, too. I mean, look at Avatar. Did he not learn something from Cameron? Why in the HELL did Planet 4 have to look EXACTLY like Earth? Hell, even LV-223 was better than Planet 4.

Ok gonna have to stand in error a bit, perhaps, on this one and rethink things.

Due to Lone and her careful guidance, I have now recalled memory of RS's imaginings of the original CB, and in originally wanting the CB to have arms and legs and to be translucent. However, due to the relatively primitive effects of the time, they could not make it move correctly and still accomplish all that. Therefore THIS CB is Ridley's original vision, so there is something to be said for that. Thanks LONE!!!

However, I remember what George Lucas did when he started "repairing" the Star Wars films to make them what he "thought" he wanted them to look like "at the time", and ... well... I'd say pull in the reins on that sort of thinking, Ridley.

@K-Theory I did not hate this movie at all. I found it pretty amazing and it threw curveballs at me from every angle. I am PROUD that it went in new directions and asked new questions. David is now the ultimate evil, right up there with Jason, Michael, Pumpkinhead, the Cenobites, Leatherface, and Satan himself.

Glad you enjoyed Covenant overall and to have been of some help Starlogger!

Once you get over it's unexpected appearance, I actually thought that the wee beastie looked pretty amazing. It makes sense regards the lifecycle, being a Mini-Morb.

@Lone you're right, of course. And, I know that ALL the life cycles were "sped up" for practical reasons to help the movie move along the way it had to move, so I can overlook all those "pseudoscience" wrongs, lol.
