Ok, I saw last week the new Alien movie. I really love tihs one. Ridley Scott did another masterpeace. How he set and did the movie was just great. Everything reminds me a lot of the first original Alien from 79´, picking up a signal, go after and the $hit goes on, but it feeld right too me.
But I saw other “reminder” of the Aliens. The scene on the begining, were Daniels collect the stuff from his died husband. The shown wood on the screne reminds me on the Aliens ext. edition, were Ripley get told her daughter Amanda had died. Nice…it just makes me smile in the theater… And the ending…killing the final xenomorph by blowing it out into the space.
And without Michael Fassbender, the movie would be just “another bug hunt”. This guy makes the story and movie(s) soo much great. He plays the two characters David and Walter like hell. He definitely did a great work of acting (imo).
I didn´t understand the birht of the xenomorph. After he pop out of the captain, of the Covenant, the Xenomorph is not a chesstbuster, he is a little, tiny “xeno”, with legs, arms, body, and the typical head…why?
The origin of the Xenomorph are no secret anymore. It is a experimental of an “crazy” robot, who has too much time, alone on the creators home wolrd. Ok…I always thought this after Prometheus, but I always hopped that this didn´t happend and the directors and the authors would tell another story. So this part was just to clear to me after I saw the Alien Covenant prologue on Youtube:
“I wake you up, when we arive”. Sure!!! Aftre I saw this everything comes to light to me. David killed the creators with her own bio - weapon and used Dr. Shawe for his “experiments” with the black, sticky liquid.
I hope we will see another part of the story in the theaters, to get a final closing to Alien 79´. (The book of Covenant 2 comes out in September 2017).
What did you think about the movie?
