I keep thinking about Alien Covenant and I just can't shake what a colossal disappointment it all was.
The story was just so weak and the sheer stupidity of the crew was just staggering. They blunder about on a planet they believe to uncharted (apart from a distress beacon from what they think was a crashed ship) and take less precautions than people on here would take just going into a strange new pub. Yeah, why not just go up to an alien and completely unknown plant and take a giant whiff I'm not a zeno biologist but I have a feeling that's strawberry floating moronic and if you do so and slowly die I'm going to make sure I spend you final hours telling you what a plank you are in no uncertain terms.
Also in the Alien universe the robot always goes bonkers so how about we just leave them at home and make them into high class butlers rather than have then yet again betray us in space and kill us all.

Lastly how many times do we have to have the whole discovery phase does nobody in the military or the companies that run these ships think it may be a good idea to inform the rest of humanity that yet again an entire facility/ship has needed to be nuked which killed almost everyone and that this is what they look like and that sticking your face into a giant pot like thing on the floor results in face humpage? #

The more I think about it the less it seems to make sense.

Yep that's correct. I couldn't even tell who is who. It was difficult to see which was Predalien. :dread:

2 or 3/10 is a joke score. It was a good 7/10. I really enjoyed it. It answered some questions for Prometheus, had done good scares and gore and looked stunning.

The CGI birthing of the
Normal morphs was a bit rubbish (would have liked to see some great physical effects there) but the neomorphs were good.

All I remember is that it had someone from 24. I want to say Michelle?

I was so excited for covenant, but everyone I've spoke to or what I've read from regular people is that it's bad... so the hype I had has been truly derailed.

Well... some of us (me, chalky, Mori, Denster and a couple other forumites) actually liked it and I think if you just can be able to switch off your mind. Just enjoy the film and it did give some answers for Prometheus, but there are some more questions to be asked though.

Spoilers.

So, that's why Ash was admired the alien form in Alien and I wonder if he got influenced by David somewhere in between Covenant and Alien. He was so determined to keep the facehugger alive.

Drive 9/10

No idea why it took me so long to watch this film, a few of my friends said i would love this due to the way its filmed and the music and they were bloody right. The art direction, music, style and acting were all spot on. Ryan Gosling is great and i didn't even realise Bryan Cranston was in it.

You could just flush your money down the toilet.

Films are subjective, don't let negative reviews put you off seeing it.

Independence Day: Resurgence. This was okay I guess, I've certainly seen worse but it was a largely unnecessary sequel. The plot was a bit ropy but the special effects and action sequences were pretty decent. 6/10

Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 6/10

Less "more of the same" and more "more of the same." The first film was an action romp with witty dialogue, funny moments and a few well placed licensed songs. 8/10, deffo in Marvel's top 2. The second film took these aspects, decided more was better than better and made a film that was nothing but. There's a licensed song every 5 minutes, the dialogue is entirely jokes (of which only a tiny fraction land) and every moment is played for laughs. There were a few great scenes (all in the trailer) a few good jokes ("I'm Mary Poppins y'all!") and the story was interesting once it got going, but there was too much filler, too much CGI and too many 80s pop-classics.

Disappointing.

Well that was strawberry floating great. Loved it, people seem to forget the Alien portrayed in Prometheus/Alien Covenant isn't the animalistic monster seen in previous movies and is nothing more than stages of Davids experiments to create the 'perfect organism'

Something I noticed that was in the trailer but not the film, the clip of the Alien jumping wall
to wall down a corridor was changed to it jumping but you watching it via its POV.

Disappointing.

That's my problem with most of the later Marvel films (Avengers 2 being the worst culprit). Shame.
