Alien: Covenant

    3 January 2018, early evening

The airplane probably wasn’t the best place to watch Alien: Covenant. The film is the sequel to Prometheus. The film opens up with a colony ship full of people in cryosleep waking up because of an accident. They redirect their ship to a nearby planet and it all turns to shit from there. I fear the directors took the criticisms of Prometheus a bit too much to heart. This film tries very hard to explain everything that’s going on. There is no mystery. It’s also less visually interesting than Prometheus. It’s still an Alien film though. There are lots of blood and guts and cool Alien shit, but on some level it all felt like something I’d seen before.

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
