    Interesting script excerpt, Griffin must've been one of the names early on. Shame we didn't see more Giger-esque design for the Engineers city, or more of the crew exploring the city.

    As they are walking to the city wouldn't you want them to act human and wonder what in the hell is going on and how come everyone around them is DEAD?  Wouldn't they be scared that a bunch of dead people in this area would be really dangerous?  Even if they aren't simply shocked and asking about why there is a CITY on this planet...  or a synthetic from earth?

    To be fair, I think they do, they just don't get answers whereas in these excerpts of the/a script posted above by Hicks David specifically answers their questions.

    Wait, in the movie they ask those questions but don't get answers?  Why in the world would they trust David at all then?  I would ask a lot MORE questions if this weird android from earth on an alien planet refuses to answer me.

    If you mean they ask off screen, then that is terrible film making.  The audience also wants to know these answers so it can't be an assumed off screen conversation.  It also helps an audience connect with the characters when they see the characters act as normal humans would and ask questions instead of simply being a means to move from one scene to the next.

    The crew SHOULD be like HOLY CRAP there is a civilization on this world.  What happened to them, how in the world did you survive, etc. etc.  David giving second hand explanations for why some aspects are the way that they are.

    Well, at that point in the movie they don't feel safe, they're in a state of shock, most of them have lost the partner they gave up life on Earth to go live with, and they're following someone they know they have no reason to trust. If they were landing there for a scientific mission with no immediate danger surrounding them like in Prometheus then yes, I'd be annoyed that they're not trying to figure out more about this civilisation. In context, it's sort of ok.

    As for the audience, there is plenty that is not stated but shown ( most of it already leaked through trailers ), so it's not like there hasn't been any effort put into it. In fact, by frame freezing when the movie comes out on dvd/blu-ray, during the scenes taking place in David's lab, I wouldn't be surprised if we ended up with a lot more details about the Engineers. I remember a moment with a big diagram of an Engineer in full sight.

    I just wish the crew would sometimes act like normal humans by not forgetting about their lost friends but CLEARLY questioning what is going on in their lives and what they are walking into.  It probably plays a little differently on screen but it seems like they are just meat sacks walking from one place to another to facilitate a scene change and more deaths.

    As in those lines were not in the movie?

    Definitely not a word about the Engineer civilisation that I can remember.

    man that is disappointing because if we aren't going to get more than a 30 second clip of them all dying THOSE are the sorts of discussions I would want to take place.  The crew SHOULD be like HOLY CRAP there is a civilization on this world.  What happened to them, how in the world did you survive, etc. etc.  David giving second hand explanations for why some aspects are the way that they are.

    Alien Covenant, though in some regards formulaic it did the job, my eyes were popping, heart pounding and chest bursting. A welcome return for Alien. Will the be well remembered, or fall into obscurity as just another average Alien film for the majority of the fan base. Only time will tell.

    Ha! Practical full body alien, on set, thank you very much. 8:28 - 8:31, for example.

    No practical aliens indeed ....  ;D
    Well, that's the sad part. They'be been completely painted over with CGI.  :-\

    It's The Thing prequel all over again.
    Yep.  :'(

    Btw, what the hell is Ridley holding here? Reminded me of the mosquito trapped in amber from Jurassic Park!  :D

    Hopefully not as severe as that. I liked that prequel, but compared to what it could have been with the original ending and practical effects that ADI showed off after the fact, it was a real disappointment. Its original incarnation likely could've stood up to the original. Still hoping for a Directors Cut someday.

    Yeah, I desperately want a director's cut of that film. I still like it too, just want to see the original FX by ADI. The studio wanted to change them because the practical effects made the film feel to 80's. Yeah, of course it does because you're story is set in 1982.

    I'm sure A:C wasn't as severe, but still if you're going to hire a practical effects team then at least use their work. Or don't bother to hire one. It saves money in the budget.
