    Just out of curiosity, how do you know it sucks?

    I watched it last Sunday. It's practically a poor xerox of the original Alien movie.

    I think the most unintentionally scathing thing I read about it was that was "content to simply lumber along until the next installment". That's a let down considering the huge potential this film had.

    After the disappointment that was Prometheus, I don't know if I can trust Scott anymore.

    Not that I really trust EW but they gave it a pretty good review. They made it sound like a mix of Prometheus and Alien. I loved the original Alien and while Prometheus had some stupid things in it overall it wasn't terrible. I guess we will see.

    Overall, the reviews aren't bad at all. Stuckmann gave it a decent grade, and I usually agree with him.

    I don't expect it to be great, but I think I will at least enjoy it.

    Rewatching the Alien and Predator movies.

    Thoughts on Alien:
    1) Nineteen SEVENTY-NINE!? This movie is almost forty years old? Holy fuck.
    2) While it may have been hit at the time, Ripley's underwear scene has to be the least sexy underwear scene in the history of film. For me, anyway.
    3) I didn't like the Alien as much as I do in the sequels. When he surprises the captain, he looks like he's a father scaring his kid during a game of hide and seek. "Raaaaar! I gotcha!" And then, in the finale, he just decided that NOW is the best time to curl up and take a nap?
    4) Ash is a douche.
    5) The chestburster scene and egg opening scene were perfect.

    Starting Aliens now.

    I saw Covenant last night. My overall thoughts are that, while it's still not as great as the first two films, it's overall pretty decent. My biggest problem with it is that there are a lot of times where it's very predictable. There are a lot of moments when it reminds you of old-school slasher movies, especially when someone finds a reason to split off from the rest of the group. It's pretty strange to see really in a film that explores big science-fiction ideas and concepts, too. My favourite part about it is how well it functions as both a sequel to Prometheus and as an Alien prequel. I haven't watched Prometheus since I saw it upon its release. After seeing this film, I'm curious to actually watch it again. Not because I didn't understand what was going on, but I'm interested in seeing how much better it flows when watched back to back with Covenant. When Prometheus was initially released, we were pretty much expecting an Alien prequel. While we didn't get it then, I think Covenant is a lot closer to what we were expecting.


    I help where I can.
    I will not fight!

    Thoughts on Aliens:

    1) What a perfect movie. In my Top Thirty. I can't think of one thing I would change.
    2) Fuck you, Burke!
    3) "Get away from her, you BITCH!" made me laugh out loud due to how badass it is.
    4) Bill Paxton was awesome in this movie, not the biggest fan overall, Michael Biehn on the other hand, I'm a huge fan of, and I wish he would have found a way to become an A-lister.
    5) The music and sound effects (pulse rifles, proximity beeps, etc.) were incredibly well done. It felt very ... metal. Not heavy metal, but it gives the feeling of grittiness, of hardness. Very unique, different.

    Thoughts on Aliens 3:

    1) Horrible CGI.
    2) I think my main problem with this movie is the characters, not only do you have ALL unlikeable characters, but most of them just sort of blend together. You're almost rooting for the alien.
    3) Dog scene is much better than ox scene.
    4) Killing off Hicks and Newt was such a bullshit move, easily one of the biggest movie fuck ups of all time.
    5) I liked the planet. The world, the bleakness and hopelessness, the fucking lice. Gross.

    I'm waiting until next week and the crowds die down a little. I'm looking forward to it, though. I enjoyed Prometheus better than Alien (but that might've been because I saw Prometheus first).

    I dont think Ill ever be able to forget Susie. Most of all, I will never forget that one night, working late
    on the catalog. Just the two of us. And we surrendered to temptation. And it was pretty good. - J. Peterman

    If you enjoyed the original Alien, you will like Covenant. They are essentially the same movie.
