@alienanthology Covenant was great.
We all have hang ups for every film we watch especially when it comes from such a perfect initial first film.
I don't want to give too much away, but this is the smartest of the anthology, and cements the backstory of the xenomorph even further.
Again my same complaint I have with every feature these days, less CGI and more practical effects please. SLOW DOWN your sequences and let the viewers enjoy the action. Faster doesn't mean better.
Great kill sequences and nods to the original in this, however the CGI was cartoonish as it always is and pulls you out of the film. A franchise who single handedly was all practical has gone down the same path every other film does and uses too much CGI.
Computers still can not replicate tangible effects, it never has and never will. Marrying the two in a practical sense while letting all parties involve have a hand in the finished product will only benefit future films such as this.
Anyways, it doesn't deserve the fan-boy hate it has gotten but there are some serious issues that didn't even need to exist. All in all a really solid script and storyline. 🌑 #alien #aliencovenant #hrgiger #xenomorph
