Being Emotional About Characters, Massive Issue It Is3,950 Views35 RepliesAdd A Reply
Who would you hug just before their bitter end to say, "Goodbye, I loved you so much, but you have to go"? (Yup, please do consider the whole Alien franchise).
Who would I hug goodbye? Captian Branson. I (for some reason) am a pretty big James Franco fan, so a send-off before his cameo death in Covenant seems right to me.
Not a map, an invitation
"Lol, ok [email protected] , you're entitled to your opinion. Aliens 3 was shocking to me. Although, I really couldn't care less about Hicks, Newt or Ripley. They were not particularly sympathetic or compelling characters to me.
It's Bishop's gruesome demise that grips me.
I liked Shaw's death. Shaw was a complex and sympathetic character so I like that she was denied the answers she sought and that she was used as a tool to implement horrors she would never have condoned.
To me that's chilling and that's what I like to see in a horror movie."
I agree completely. I found Shaw's death far more horrifying than any Xeno could be. Xenos have the jump-shock factor, but it's over with pretty quickly. I find suspense and psychopathy far more jarring and a mind-f*ck. Why I love Hannibal so much! David reminds me of him...
The first few times I saw Covenant, seeing what David did to Shaw actually made me cry... It was horrifyingly sad.
the little chestburster in aliens. as soon as he was born he was wiped out of existance. he never got to feel the breeze on his (face?) never got the satisfaction of punching someones head in with his mouth. such an innosent creature killed long before his time. RIP

I'd say Shaw.
And IRaptus, please, your mention of "that" thing makes me cry...but not because I mourned its death...quite the contrary.
@Vivisected well done on Bishop. I like it!
Yes! So agreed on all counts! ...David is very Hannibal-esque.
Much appreciated! I feel pretty strongly on this matter, lol.
(Also, I have to admit, I'm embarrassingly glad someone actually read it! I was afraid it was too much of a wall-of-text, so I thought my impassioned little Bishop eulogy had disappeared into obscurity, much like poor, unregarded Bishop himself. So THANK YOU!...for indulging my long-windedness.)
