Alien Covenant

Movies, TV and Entertainment
Awesome movie. Excellent sequel to Prometheus. Great story development! Check it out if you haven't already!
This movie answers the age old question "the chicken or the egg"...at least for xenomorphs.

For this reason alone I think it's worth it!

Edit: not saying it's a great film, just that finally the origin is answered
Everything after Aliens was crap.
I heard it was pretty boring and the best moment happened early on in movie and it was "meh" at best.

I refuse to watch it as I stopped watching reboots/remakes/etc as I refuse to have my childhood sh*t on by Hollywood running out of ideas for new stuff :|
Heard it was garbage. Haven't really liked any of them past "Aliens" anyway.

Those first two films set the bar extremely high. I can watch them over and over again.
The entertainment forum is over there.

But yeah, I read a thing in the local paper that ranked the first two films the highest.

It says this new one does kind of make Prometheus better, in context.

I'll definitely see it on DVD/download.
Id rather watch AVP again
Would Logan's adamantium claws melt from xenomorph blood or have no effect?

that's gone too far
I will buy it when it comes out, no point in seeing movies before digital release these days.
I have had my fill of face huggers.

Asking the hard questions.
It's...okay. The trailers are a lie: this film is more Prometheus than Alien. Better than Prometheus, though. A few scenes are great.

The main thing is that Ridley Scott is determined to create a huge backstory for the xenomorphs...but do we really need one? I mean, I was totally cool with them being a scary alien race. The backstory just kinda makes it all boring.

Alright... fine....

Would X-23's adamantium claws melt from xenomorph blood or have no effect?
I have a friend who plays this game who worked on that. He's a lighting TD, a CGI lighting artist basically.

That said, I've never actually seen a movie he's worked on. Effects heavy films aren't typically what I pick to watch.
Well for those of you who haven't seen it yet, don't go off of what the critics say, go see it for yourself. How many times have the critics been wrong about movies?

I like the back story.
