Quote from: Kradan on Jul 10, 2022, 08:13:44 PMBtw, @NecronomIV,  what have you thought of Covenant ?

(copy and paste a slightly revised post from the Covenant thread. I'm lazy economical  8) )

I'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.

There's a lot to love about it. 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 an easy 5/5. The med-bay scene I was literally biting my nails (the acting and soundtrack were both exceptional there). 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 it's not its own thing; it's part of a larger story. I found some parts sour and unpalatable (no Shaw, David creating the xenomorphs) and unconsidered (absurdly short incubation times) and a lost opportunity (show us a harrowing, strange and alien Engineer society and world, not Ancient Rome Post Holocaust). So I can only really give it 3/5 and feel a little sad about it.

It's been said a thousand times, but God, what an audiovisually beautiful film. :o

Great way to put it. The audio is a subtle and underappreciated aspect of film sometimes. I ripped the audio of Prometheus a few years ago and listened on really good headphones. Without the visuals, the sound-design really stands out, it really is quite exceptional. The music is great too.

I remember when they released the audio of the Hammerpede attack before the movie came out, divorced of any imagery, and it seemed like it was going to be such a terrifying sequence.
