The things that will destroy the Alien: The Covenant
When Prometheus first came out in 2012, it was described as an odd introduction. In fact, it was in fact completely separate, super-confusing thing. It was kind of connected to the famous outer space horror movie, but the actual aliens didn’t show up. Well, it was officially announced that Ridley Scott is finally making a new Alien film, called Alien: The Covenant. Based on the title, we are confident that he will in fact feature the infamous xenomorph of the unit this time. We would like to have hope, but there’s a lot of stuff that got us worried…
It may be all shot movie Prometheus garbage story. The most notable issue is that there are a lot of almost-odd moments in the film, but they were all slightly changed. It really made the film seem like more of a rip-off of the introduction. While it’s clear that Ridley Scott intends to correct that (it puts the alien in the movie title at this time), it is too late. Now filmmakers to bridge the gap between the movies and this is a waste of time. No one wants to see how the almost-facehugger becomes the actual facehugger. The xenomorph is this amazing creature design, but we spend part of the film, with a focus on those dopey, pale engineers. It looks like grief. The presence of grief is something the Aliens franchise wasn’t missing.
More of the commentary
All of what makes alien so scary based on how vague. Instead of the alien eggs being just a normal thing on the planet, they discovered a crashed, derelict spacecraft. It does not affect the story of the film, but it adds a nice level of mystery. Explaining where to ship those eggs came from is the worst idea in the world. It’s taking away one of the best parts of the creature. This would be like if someone decided to make a movie about Wolverine, but before that he had his powers, he was just a little boy jumping all over the Canada. Or a movie about how Darth Vader was once a small child with a bowl cut stupid backpack. Do these look like good ideas? Not—X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Star Wars: The Phantom Menace whether it was hot piles of garbage. You don’t want or need answers to this question. It’s like seeing how the magician does the trick. The only people who enjoy are other magicians and people who love to sabotage a timely manner.
Why do filmmakers keep doing this? Stop making movies on the assumption that you’re going to get to make a sequel. To make a good film not the beginning of the film that will lead to potentially the best one on the road, assuming that it ever gets. Ridley Scott has repeatedly talked about how this film will lead to another movie which will lead directly to the alien. What about just focusing on making one good movie that stands on its own? Doesn’t that sound like a better idea? Just tell a story with a beginning, middle and end, and if people like it, and then start working on the second part. Remember how Super Mario Bros the movie ended on a suspense? Is this the kind of movie that people should be simulated?
Turns out the alien
We already know what the alien looks like. We’ve seen it through six movies already there is no surprise at the disclosure. The problem is that this movie forced itself in the build up to the name of the creature. We have to sit through at least an hour of the movie pretending we don’t know what is coming. Imagine how lame Christmas would be if you got gifts before December 25, you should play with them, and then to live them and unwrap them again on Christmas morning. This movie. There is no way to detect the alien in a sexy way. This is the film equivalent of trying to throw a surprise party for yourself. All your friends will just be sitting in a dark room somewhere, bored, silently hating you for holding the party.
It’s the third part-re-run-the middle three
We have already talked about how making a movie with the scheme the consequences of a bad idea. While this film has that problem, it’s much more complicated. First sequel to Prometheus, but not really. It’s not really a continuation of the story of this film, making it feel more like a reboot. The problem is that Michael Fassbender is back to play the character of David, so it’s still connected to the Prometheus—so it’s still a sequel. If that wasn’t complicated enough, it is also the middle part of the trilogy. How many triads completely changed in the second movie? It is very complex and unnecessarily complicated. It’s going to take more energy to figure out how all these movies fit together. When people sit down to watch movies, they don’t want to have to pull the maps just so they can understand everything. Before watching this film, you need to watch some of the movies from the franchise, but not all of the movies from the franchise, and probably should not be watching some of the movies that came out before this because it will spoil the plot on this thing… and your head just exploded.
Director Ridley Scott has mentioned several times that this movie will have connections to Ellen Ripley’s first star of the Alien franchise. Played by Sigourney Weaver, Ripley was part of a crew of “space truckers.” They were just ordinary, working class people who happened to live in the future and in space. That’s what made them relatable. We don’t need the original Ripley. Not out should be don’t fill out an application and go to job interviews. It should not make a good movie, because the story of this all is that they even encountered the xenomorph was just a normal person. If they add some crazy cosmic connection between her and the alien, that kind of kills the whole ‘normal’ aspect of her personality.
