What do you think about the new movies?

Post by TheBeoni » 13 Nov 2017, 09:15

Maybe you noticed that multiple new movies "prequels" are out. As in Prometheus and Alien: Covenant what is your opinion about these?

Alien 1-3 are best. Better than news movies about aliens.

Same issue I have with the comics. Raises too many questions with technology, and confused the hell out of anyone who watches them. Not that they're hard to follow, but where are the eggs? You're gonna tell me the eggs that were a thousand years old on lv426 were actually like 20 years old aNd made by some weird gay android? Piss off, give me some more marines verses ayys

I gotta say the latest one is probably my favorite James Franco movie.

I liked them, once you realise that the series has evolved past the point of >Scary spooky aliens kill people.

The new series explore some new questions and why it's not my favorite two films, I can certainly appreciate the change in direction rather than the same old tired formula.

I didn't like anything about covenant. The story, characters, props, or visuals. The only thing worth watching was micheal fassbender

This is all I want in a Aliens film. Marines fighting ayys, getting cut down one by one. It just feels right, but Aliens seems to be the only film that can pull off the action and horror together.
I play as Ian Evans, the guy that is either dead after five minutes, or is the hero the USCM deserves. Usually the first one.

I think they are decent, not good, but not THAT bad either, even though I consider them more of a comedy than a horror.

It's a joke. The more they push the movies towards being PG 13 the worse they get.

Don't you think xenomorphs are too perfect to be the product of natural evolution ?

It doesn't have to be realistic... Xenomorphs couldn't POSSIBLY exist through natural evolution. For example I don't think no animal would be able to survive deep space without intervention, they just wouldn't evolve in a way that allows them to survive such an environment. But lets not really get into a realism argument with about movies because it just never really fucking ends

Very last movie was shit from the perspective of everything characters were doing, bunch of dumbfucks without any knowledge. And the film itself was so much filled with director`s obsession on bible stories that it wasnt even funny. Previous one was at least semi good and i did enjoy it, but muh lore... it is broken. Lets ignore it all and live in the past

Im a big fan of lore and background information.
I really like the new series, but I only loosely consider it "Aliens" like

no, but the disney cancelled neill blomkamp film was shaping up to be visually interesting at least. Which is something i feel the new series tried to hard to modernize on

I really didn't care for Prometheus at all. I found Covenant to be okay, but really just okay and nothing more than that.
