5 Great Things About Alien: Covenant
List by Anthony Cleveland
No one seems to be as happy with Alien: Covenant as I am. I loved the origin reveal of the xenomorph, and I'm happy to have another bloody Alien film a part of the saga. Whether you love it or hate it, I think I've found some common ground that we can all celebrate from Covenant.
- 5: Getting to see a xenomorph in a horror setting again.
We're spoiled now. We get to see every nerdy thing we love from our childhood rebooted to the big screen. When we do get something nostalgic, we tend to crap on it because we operate under the notion that it doesn't quite live up to our memories. Now, I'm not saying we should praise every beloved franchise that come out, more so just to be grateful that we're seeing something that we never thought we'd see again. How jealous would our younger selves be if we told them what we have today?
- 4: Seeing Franco burned alive.
FUCK YOU FRANCO! THATS FOR ALL YOUR BAD LITERARY FILM ADAPTATIONS. He has been burned and now he is cleansed of all his film sins. He can now emerge a Phoenix with the forthcoming film The Disaster Artist, which we very much look forward to.
- 3: Danny McBride can act and isn't just repeating Kenny Powers.
It was a welcomed surprise to see him in a more dynamic role, even though it was a stereotypical space cowboy part.
- 2: Fox is unsure what to do with the Alien franchise.
They will either make one final Alien prequel to tie up the loose ends or possibly they'll finally start Neil Blomkamp's Aliens sequel. There is a huge fan following for his concept art, and it wouldn't be the first time Fox listened to the fans. *Coughs and nods to Logan & Deadpool*
- 1: Covenant makes everything AvP non-cannon.
The AvP movies take place in the present and feature xenomorphs on earth. Covenant reveals the xenomorphs didn't come into creation until after 2098. Booyeah!
What do you think? Do these make the film more tolerable, or is it still a massive disappointment? We want to know. Share your thoughts and feelings in the comments section below, and, as always, remember to viddy well!
