I love Alan Dean Foster's novels and I'm very excited and anxious to read what he has done with
this Covenant prequel novel. I never thought I'd say this but I have really lost faith in Ridley and the universe.
He keeps making major mistake after major mistake and worse yet, flip flopping.
Nothing he says can be trusted anymore it seems.
When he shot PROMETHEUS, he said he doesn't think he'll ever not shoot in 3D again and that it opens
up even dialog scenes and makes them better. When he shot PROMETHEUS, he had the sense to see
that the CGI Fifield looked like a cartoon so he opted for the real version. He also has constantly said that
CGI looks fake, explosions are too big to be believed, etc. - So what does he do?!?!
He shoots ALIEN COVENANT in 2D and with barely any actualy real creature f/x, just a bunch of cartoon
creatures hopping and dancing their way through another cgi shitfest.
SO... I am very much hoping to at least read a decent novel and get some of the old flavoring back
on my taste buds of what's actually good about the series. It seems to me that almost everyone but
Ridley is an ALIEN fan. Ridley, however, seems like he's trying to erase his legacy. Everything cool
about ALIEN he runs from, fearing repeating himself or whatever, instead of just doing what works.
