    For you in the States.

    Yeah, he is. I watched his interview with Jimmy Kimmel and he seemed very nice and outgoing.

    Here's an article from Digital Spy that's says Covenant is one long apology for Prometheus.

    It will only help if they undid the space jockey reveal.

    For some reason this makes me happy. I'm reminded of Heart of Darkness meets Frankenstein. Two of my favorite books.


    I certainly prefer it to the whole "Space Jockeys created it as no more than equipment to be used", as opposed to "I studied their ways and created the perfect organism!" OMFG I'M SO EXCITED I WANNA CRY. Lmao. Ridley is awesome.

    I'll have to see the film to confirm if the idea works or not. Maybe Ridley should've taken the mad robot storyline and used that for the Blade Runner sequel.

    I think so (I haven't seen it, but I like it). Think "The Last Question" by Isaac Asimov (since you mentioned authors), wherein humanity seeks the secrets of the universe through technology. Eventually, they end up pouring all of their resources into creating this perfect machine/supercomputer to try to figure out the meaning of life. Eventually, humanity has all been absorbed into a "superconsciousness" of sorts, and they find out that the processing power that the interdimensional machine that they have created requires all of the consiousness of life to power itself to find out the question, and so the superconsciousness organism combines itself with the machine, and the machine says "Let there be light!" and reboots the universe...

    I've never read any Asimov. I actually just ordered a collection with The Last Question being included in it. It's funny one review described Covenant as a Asimov meets David Cronenberg.

    Have you seen the movie?
    No, but that doesn't make a difference.

    Actually it does. We're discussing something you know nothing about, which is pointless.
    Nothing? The entire movie has been the subject of discussion for weeks, now. I've known the plot for months! I have better things to do than argue about something so incredibly stupid. The burden of proof is on you to prove that a movie called Alien: Covenant by Ridley Scott is not an Alien movie, but I'm content to let you be believe whatever you want. I just know for a fact that your criticism of Kermode is irrational and foolishly thought pointing it out would cause you to reassess. Oops! Lol.
  9. Beardomorph
    The problem I have with Kermode's review ( I've never been a fan of what I've read from him. I know he's respected, but the couple of reviews I have read from him have been drivel and missing the points big time - I have his review of Nymphomaniac in mind ) is that he judges Covenant by comparing it endlessly to the original Alien, which is once again missing the point of the movie completely. Covenant is not about the Alien, it's about a robot gone mad in space. Two very different things.

    For some reason this makes me happy. I'm reminded of Heart of Darkness meets Frankenstein. Two of my favorite books.

    Btw, did you like the movie Beardomorph?

    The Horror!  ;D

    I still have to leave my fan review up there, I'm waiting to see the movie a second time before posting it. But yeah, I really enjoyed it and there wasn't one noise in the theatre for the whole running time ( except laughter for one specific line ;D ). People were really taken by the movie. The best thing you could say about Covenant is that it's never boring, the two hours went by very quickly.

    Have you seen the movie?
    No, but that doesn't make a difference. This is called Alien, it has aliens, it is a direct prequel to Alien, and it has been heavily marketed as an Alien movie. Kermode would be daft to review it as anything else. You are thinking of Prometheus. That was harshly judged as an Alien movie despite not being one. Are you seriously arguing that this is an Alien movie in name only? Does anybojdy on this planet agree with that? Because I'm certain that the fi!makers themselves would be the first to tell you that you are wrong. You are even wrong about the story. David is only at the center because he creates the beast, and the creation of the classic beast is now the focus of the prequels. Alien to the core.
  12. BishopShouldGo
    Yet it is called "Alien: Covenant," not "Robot: Covenant" and the artificiality of the Fassbenderr characters was downplayed in all adverts. This was marketed as an Alien prequel. You are thinking of Prometheus, which was unfairly maligned for not being Alieny enough despite being about the origins and future of humankind and artificial intelligence.

    Someone who is professionally reviewing movies knows better than to let the title and marketing influence his view of the movie. It could be called SPATULA : Covenant, it'd still be the same film. It's only titled Alien : Covenant and not Covenant because the general audience was generally disappointed by Prometheus for not being an Alien movie, but anybody who has seen the movie can say that the Alien is not what it's about.
    Fox told Ridley to add aliens and change the title and the story to bridge to Alien. It doesn't get more Alien than that, dude. Sorry, but this is an Alien movie to its core.

    I would really, really love to read Paglen's draft.

    I don't know the best place to inquire, but it's not worth it's own topic: was Covenant filmed in 3D? Prometheus was & they promoted that aspect heavily. It looked f'n gorgeous too. Haven't heard anything about it this go around, but it seems odd to go backwards it terms of presentation.

    Scott says he was wrong ... or right.

    Quote
    Prometheus received fan ire for not focusing heavily enough on the scares, something which appears to be fixed in the terrifying Covenant. "What changed was the reaction to Prometheus, which was a pretty good ground zero reaction," Scott said of his decision to refocus on the classic xenomorphs. "It went straight up there, and we discovered from it that [the fans] were really frustrated. They wanted to see more of the original [monster] and I thought he was definitely cooked, with an orange in his mouth. So I thought: 'Wow, OK, I'm wrong.'"

    Unlike some filmmakers, who push down a certain path regardless of fan reactions, Scott says that he does consider it, explaining that fans, while not the final say in what he includes, can be a "reflection of your doubts about something." "You realize, 'I was wrong' or 'I was right,” he said. "I think that's where it comes in. I think you're not sensible if you don't actually take [the fans' reaction] into account."

    Despite negative fan response to Prometheus and amid mostly positive, mixed reviews for Covenant, Scott still says that he plans to do at least one more sequel, set to be released within "a year and nine months," and possibly even another after that, although he won't say what they will be about or when they will take place. "It's weird when you're writing, doing, planning, thinking about franchises, it's amazing how it opens up and starts to evolve," he said.

    I know I shouldn't post scified stuff but I just wanted to get it down for the record: a thread over there claims alien 5 was initially going to be called awakening.  Just for the record.

    Danny Mcbride will be on Jimmy Kimmel tonight!

    Just wanted to let people know that actor Billy Crudup (Oram) will be on Jimmy Kimmel tomorrow night. That's on ABC after local news.
