I did not like it.
Not very ALIEN like at all.

Parker had the best line after the bursted zipped off the table though.  :)

That moment was embarrasing, almost parody  :-\

I liked it. For a few seconds it wasn't a mindless killing machine and was truly ethereal.

I liked the scene. It’s such a perversely tender moment. David and his creation in a brief moment of communion with each other.

I like it. As stated before by others, great lighting and composition.

Personally I do think that in this scene as in the fingering scene it's supposed to be funny ; Fassbender's acting is quite quirky in both scenes and the moment the baby xeno rises and the "father" David shows it the way I mean seems obvious to me that it wasn't intent to be taken seriously.

I also like the way the music contrast with the chestbursting.

Instead of mimicking the originial chestbursting scene it goes other way, an unexcpected way and I like it.

Like most things in the movie, didn't love it, didn't hate it. I think they could have showed Davids "moment" in another way. It wasn't in keeping with the other movies.

Amazing scene. Emphasizes what Alien is all about: creation, birth, desire for biological perfection etc. I guess the scene didn't have enough guns, explosions and yelling marines to please Aliens fans though.

They want such creative ideas like Blomkamp's Ripley running around in a xenomorph suit.

For sure, if they swapped out the regular guns for pulse rifles... Easily movie of the year.

I didn't like the scene to me it was kinda goofy. I think they could have had David interact with the Alien some other way. Otherwise I did enjoy Alien: Covenant for the most part.

It's very  diminutive compared to the jabs at Covenant, comrade. Don't kid yourself.  ;D

That was my thought as well. I like brief moments that depict the alien actually thinking about something. Kind of like when the alien was grinning at Lambert.

one of the best parts of the film, took me by complete surprise

the music did sell the scene. chestbursters have been traditionally horrific scenes and the turnaround of trying the show it as beautiful birth worked imo

Alien 3 did the beautiful birth thing next to dark but hautingly beautiful score, i still get chills from this:




Covenant brth scene doesn't belong in a proper Alien film. The music on it's own is not bad, it's pretty but it completely lacks the dark undertones that an Alien film requires. It probably would fit nicely to some romantic movie. It's still musically one of the strongest moments (that wasn't reused Goldsmith) in the soundtrack. Some of the Covenant scenes are just bad taste, e.g the K-Drama esque sappy piano music with Daniels. WTF were they thinking.

Tbf the shocking chestbuster wouldn't have been effective either when there was pretty gory b2b backburster/throatburser earlier and the build up for the chestburst was horrible and the result was just laughable in the end.
