The easy way out? What are even talking about? Saying that Blomkamp is more passionate about the series than Ridley Scott is ridiculous. You can't possibly know that. You didn't like Covenant. That's your right. I'm not going to write multiple paragraphs detailing why I disagree because I have better things to do than argue about the same tired things or why you feel so wronged about the title of a movie. Easy way out, lol. I'm not the one making wild assumptions. This will be my last reply to you on this thread because it's obvious to me that you don't want a discussion, you want an argument. Good day.
Exactly, part of the problem is you don't know what I'm talking about, the other part is the thesis and basis for your posts are thin as ice --->
1st - Can I enjoy covenant (with thrown in passive agressive stuff such as "without being insulted" when I haven't insulted anyone)
2nd - Your post is your opinion
What discussion? We can't have a discussion cause your posts consists of only that instead of backing up your sole announcement of "I liked Covenant". What did you like about it?
Does it have something besides the heavy emphasis on David and the Bladerunner referrences and horror cliches with some interesting stuff thrown in that potentially won't go anywhere, same as the Deacon?
Where are the (interesting) sci-fi designs/sets, trademark for the Alien franchise?
And you're wrong, I enjoyed Covenant to a some extent - 1st half was nothing unseen, but good; good design of the ship; they didn't take the time (or any in the case of the captain) to develop the crew, yet again. The cast was good/believable.
Ridley is a visioner as I've said in another thread that the direction was top notch, the build up to the backbuster and the scene were done very well. There were other spread here and there, but as whole they were scarce.
2nd half was lacking/rushed, with some (maybe one?) disturbing scene - the Neomorph just standing behind the chick at the fountain. Well done, well shot.
I wrote 6 paragraphs in 5 mins and it is one sided because you basically don't have arguments.
