After half a decade of constant shit flinging from cinema-troglodytes, people who don't know what an actual plot hole is, people who hate movies that make them think, people who for five fucking years claimed that Prometheus had no sense of direction and all the open-ended questions will forever be left the way they were because "Scott has no idea what's he's doing" got eternally BTFO yesterday.

Alien: Covenant comes in to pick up where Prometheus left off and kick start a new trilogy that will explore the creation of the Xenomorphs, the black goo, and lead right into the first Alien film. Both prologues and all the trailers that FOX has released have been absolutely promising, but leave it to brain dead flick watchers to attempt to smear the movie, all because Prometheus challenged them when they just wanted mindless entertainment.

The movie has already made half its budget before today, it's going to rip apart every other show this weekend and leave movie casuals eternally ass ravaged, it's going to be fucking glorious.

Thank you for posting that video! I saw it for the first time a few days ago and it leaves me confused on how people could be so stupid and ask such stupid questions. It's like they went in wanting to hate it.

emigrate or degenerate. the choice is yours
Prometheus was a shitshow though, and no matter how good the sequel is it doesn't rectify the shitty writing and aimless plot.

>Engineers created us
>no w8 a sec, now they want to kill us all, the entire human race, because a select few of us killed Jesus who was apparently an Engineer (not even making that shit up, Scott dropped this stupid idea in an interview)
>David poisons a crew member because...who knows. The entire David subplot was utterly irrelevant and yet somehow emphasised throughout the marketing and movie
>Infected human + regular human = trilobite
>Trilobite + Engineer = precursor to a Xenomorph I guess??

I'm not entirely blaming Scott for this trainwreck of a movie, most of the blame goes to Damon Lindelof's Lost tier writing, but that doesn't make him completely blameless for going ahead with this thing. A sequel doesn't magically alter the sins of its shitty predecessor.

MovieBob tore it up for trying to cash in on building a mythos and canonical story, as if Alien and Aliens were some holy, virginal films that could never be touched or explored. I loved Prometheus, even as it was only tangentially related to Alien. I hope they continue making varied films, since the Alien franchise's biggest draw is its use of a simple horror concept, explored in many different genres. A:C looks a bit too similar to Prometheus to be a different genre, but w/e.

And thus ruin what makes them frightening in the first place.

>Your first two posts is based off fan theory with no confirmation.
>David was ordered by Weyland to find any possible way to extend Weyland's life, that's why he started researching the black goo. Infecting Halloway with the goo wasn't pointless, he wanted to see what would happen. He even asks Halloway's permission first "What would you risk/how far would you go to achieve your goals?" "Anything and everything" *bloop* bottoms up.
>The black goo alters DNA but it's left purposefully unclear on its exact parameters, this isn't a plot hole.
>The murals on the wall in the big face room/altar show Xenomorphs were already a thing by the time of Prometheus.

Go back and rewatch it, and this time without prejudice.

Covenant has a lot of people against it just for existing, even from the Alien fanbase. People will hate it because they're still bitter over Prometheus, people will hate it because they're still bitter about every Alien movie after Aliens, people will hate it because it's an Alien movie after Alien. That last group will be split with people that will hate it because they're afraid it will """ruin""" Alien.

I have to go for the time being, I'll answer any response when I get to the break room at work.

less people seemed to enjoy it than the critics though

David was evil. He hates his creators, and his own curiosity meant more to him than the crew's lives. It was a major point of the movie.
actual spoilers
He continues in Covenant

Scott:
"But if you look at it as an ‘our children are misbehaving down there’ scenario, there are moments where it looks like we’ve gone out of control, running around with armor and skirts, which of course would be the Roman Empire. And they were given a long run. A thousand years before their disintegration actually started to happen. And you can say, ‘Let’s send down one more of our emissaries to see if he can stop it.’ Guess what? They crucified him.”

I'm not so much as criticizing the black goo as a plot hole as I am calling it out for what it is; a dumb plot thread. They could have just left it as a deadly mutagen but instead decided to go on this really weird plot tangent with borderline hentai porn just so we can get a hint hint, wink wink easter egg at the end of the film.

There's so much fat that could've been trimmed from this movie, because that's where Prometheus ultimately fails. Aimless filler that really adds nothing to the established universe besides the fact that the handsome squidwards want to kill us for being naughty children.

If I'm not here, I'm doing Geology. Or I'm asleep. Or hungover. One of those three, anyway.

If you want nameplates or modified images for avatars, pm me to your heart's content. I may or may not ever get around to them, I'm lazy like that, but I'll get around to them at some point. Maybe.
I liked Prometheus. Wasn't an Alien-type film, but it wasn't trying to be. Only gripe is the crappy "Prometheus school of running away" meme.

 Covenant was good. A bit rushed for time near the end though. The woman went from...
Spoiler
...being pretty passive, pretty devastated by the death of her husband...
...to...
Spoiler
...grabbing a gun and swinging around on the sky loader tether to kill the Xeno, with her swinging huge pair of balls between her legs. But then going back to the other way around once back on the ship!

I enjoyed prometheus and I feel that it gets a bit more hate than it deserves. It's certainly not the worst alien film, though it's far from the best.

I fucking loved Covenant. Fassbender is so fucking good.
