I prefer Prometheus over Covenant.
Could you please elaborate on that. Some comparisons and personal opinion... I m interested in comparative reviews and since you are the first to say that you like Prometheus more, it would be nice to see some arrguments behind that statement...
Ok, i will try it, im spanish and it´s difficult for me to write in english what i feel. I made a video on my YT chanell explaning everything but in spanish:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dXvymljNHrk
Buy, yeah, i will try it:
I prefer Prometheus because i hate what Ridley did mixing Prometheus with Alien. It doesn´t works well and we don´t have Engineers. He erased them from this sequel of Prometheus.
The 3 act it´s rushed, he takes so much from Alien (closing doors), but rushed, and i hate the CGI Xeno (looks fake, looks more like an Alien 3 than the Giger design, it moves fast, so fast, like the third act of the movie. I hate the fast growth of the Xeno and the fast gestation of the Alien Burster or how fast a facehugger could infect you.
I prefer what they did with the Engineer on Prometheus, real man with make up.
Noomi Rapace it´s so much better than Katherine Watterston, she doesn´t have the charisma of Shaw/Rapace. I don´t like how Ridley erased Noomi from the movie. We only
. That´s bad !!!!
I don´t like the Oram dialogues, some of the them are overplanation of his character (like Christopher Nolan did with Interestellar).
I don´t like the James Franco scene, the
and i can´t believe how fast Daniels change on what she feels. It looks like a copy of Prometheus (ring/necklace).
I like David, but when he appears the rest of the cast suffers so much and i lost interest in them. There are some stupid things like Prometheus, but in Prometheus they created new concepts, they surprised us and in this movie Ridley it´s trying to give to Alien fans what they want in the third act.
Alien : Covenant it´s more a Prometheus 2 sequel than an Alien movie, and i like it. But for me it could be better to take out
David creating the Alien. I prefer if the Engineers created the monster
. I think it could be a better movie if Ridley only showed us Neomorphs and Engineers. And then, later, show how the Engineers created the Alien (maybe in the next movie).
Visuallly it´s amazing, i like what Wolski did with the cinematography and Jed Kurzel OST it´s good, but the used so much CGI for the monster. It´s strange, because in this video they shows a real puppet, but they finally didn´t use it (second 29):https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTRlE8koR5s
By the way, i saw the Arnold Blöklin reference on the David temple.
