lol joylitt, I still love Prometheus, but sometimes I feel the dialogue a little bit stupid. The film creates a bigger universe and timeline which I really appreciate. However, as a movie viewing experience, I enjoy Covenant more.

Jonesy what was finally the point of Charlize Theron being in Prometheus? 

Ms. Vickers was an android and will be sent by Weyland-Yutani to confront David in the next movie?

although prometheous is slightly better, alien covenant is more entertaining so covenant. love them both though. prometheous would probably get an 8.5/10 and alien covenant would get an 8/10.

Prometheus! I have grown to love what Covenant is, but I can't not watch Prometheus!

Prometheus, It expanded the Alien universe :)

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!

It's really tough, but Prometheus I think.

I love Alien: Covenant too and its starting to grow on me more each pass but Prometheus....well, you know.


XenomorphMember1140 XPAug-17-2017 3:25 PM

Prometheus for Zombie Fifield and Shaw's baby and the Juggernaut crashing.....

Alien:Covenant is hard core...what a ride...Going to have to watch it another 20 times before I can put in a verdict.


ChestbursterMember907 XPAug-17-2017 4:03 PM

Definitely Prometheus.


ChestbursterMember725 XPAug-17-2017 4:25 PM

Lol @ joylitt stepping on Jonesy 's tail!

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.



TrilobiteMember8207 XPAug-17-2017 4:35 PM

VivisectedEngineer I plan to rewatch tonight and only got through about 1/4 of the extras.


ChestbursterMember725 XPAug-17-2017 4:37 PM


O_O Oh man! Now I can't decided whether I should wait to watch it with my friends, or go ahead and dive into the extras without them, lol.


PraetorianStaff2414 XPAug-17-2017 6:03 PM

Good to see a mix of Covenant and Prometheus likers. Shows both films have their merits :)


FacehuggerMember133 XPAug-18-2017 6:40 AM

Prometheus 100%. The plot actually does something. Covenant is fun but aside from David getting on board with the facehugger embryos, there is very little plot movement. Covenant = more deaths. Prometheus = mystery and pure sci fi

FacehuggerMember444 XPAug-18-2017 1:37 PM

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
