Quote from: RabidNinja on Aug 10, 2021, 05:45:22 PMWell damn, am i late to the party! Considering the film is 4 years old, I won't be using spoiler tags.Having both watched the Theatrical and Chaos Edition versions of the film, I definitely have to say that it's a film that would've benefitted from the inclusion of certain scenes that created a better relation to characters from the opening moments of the film; effectively including the Prologue with David/Shaw to a certain extent, as well as the Last Supper, Crew messages, and the WY interviews.Aside from characters, the gore of it all was really f**king brutal, and the story was interesting, albeit a light retread of Prometheus in ways. The atmosphere was great, the neo/proto designs were interesting, although felt underutilised until the halfway point/ending of the film, and the xeno itself was goddamn gorgeous.Now i could go into a tirade about how the inclusion of Ridley's obsession regarding Androids and AI and the creation of life is starting to go a touch stale, especially with the mentality that he created the "first" non-traditional xenomorph, but i'd much rather sit on the sidelines and go by self-canon that Xeno Prime does exist, as well as the queen mother, palatines, praetorians, etc, and the Xenos are actually a creation from the Engineers, and that Predators hunt them for sport.All in all, the film itself is quite a decent bloody and gory ride.

Quote from: NecronomIV on Jun 18, 2022, 11:17:00 AMI'm really interested to see how we'll be feeling about Covenant for it's 10 year anniversary. It seems a good amount of time to be able to step back and judge something. Partly I suppose it will depend on whether the story is actually ever finished.For myself, I appreciated the design, look, direction and acting. Didn't really like the story and the direction it went in very much.If it was its own thing, it would be 5/5. The med-bay scene I was literally biting my nails (the soundtrack was excellent). And I walked out of the theatre thinking it was, in many ways, a bleaker ending than ALIEN 3 (and that's a good thing).But parts of it I found sour and unpalatable (no Shaw, David creating the xenomorphs) and unconsidered (absurdly short incubation times) and a loss opportunity (show us a glorious, strange and alien Engineer society and world, not Ancient Rome Post Holocaust). So I can only really give it 3/5 and feel sad about it.
