Maybe the best film by Na Hong-jin, who make other great films like "The Yellow Sea" and "The Chaser".
It is a great flick and welcome to the thread.

Covenant is the business. I suspect the same crew that didn't like Prometheus will be out in full force hating this one too. Oh well, I'm sure the CW will have some cape show for them to love.

Ha! I am glad you liked it! There are lots of fun stuff to see in this movie! It is more 'linear' (not a bad thing) than Prometheus but fun nonetheless! Iirc, I think this movie was made for less that $100 million and I do think the sequel will be green lit!

I have tentative plans to see the new Alien movie tonight. Looking forward to it. Without having seen it yet, isn't the sequel to it Alien? Or is there a gap between them?

Direct sequel to Prometheus and I do think there will be at least one movie that gaps between Alien C and Alien.

Hey you went to the Rosemount marcus theater? I like going there because of the Atmos sound and the decent snacks they have! I hope you liked the movie man!

Now how about a nice cookie from your very own Alien Ovomorph Egg Cookie Jar.

But do the cookies jump out at you when you remove the lid ?

No, these people ain't watching Arrow either. But I have a theory about haters, haters have too much time on their hands. As for the rest of us, raise your hand if you remember what spare time is. Bueller ? Bueller?
THO: Bueller?! What's a Bueller

I wanted to go to the IMAX but they're still showing Guardians 2. I did enjoy the show. I'll write a brief review in just a sec.

Now that would be cool. I'm still debating on whether to order one or not. Maybe give it to the Mrs. for Christmas. Everyone's a winner.

Saw Alien Covenant in Atmos. Let me start by saying Ridley knows how to make gorgeous looking movies. And this one doesn't disappoint in that regard. Overall I quite enjoyed it. The pacing was good, had some nice gore and most importantly this crew was nowhere near as annoying as the Prometheus crew. I'm not one to nitpick all the little idiosyncrasies as I'm there to enjoy the ride. However, my one gripe or disappointment was

Folks that like Milla Jovovich, Resident Evil The Final Chapter is worth the rent! Fun horror action flick with great use of sound!
