They should release it alongside Star Wars.

If it bombs, well, what do you expect when there's this massively popular movie to contend with. If it does ok, well, that was against effing Star Wars! And if it's a hit, well, we can dream :)


Hehe... That's like saying, "Let's park our school bus on the railroad tracks when the train is scheduled to cross. If anyone lives, they will have a great story to tell!"

Alien: Covenant has started screening for critics and the early reviews I have seen have pretty much all been very negative. Kind of disappointing.

Indeed. I've said this many times but I think Prometheus was an outstanding movie and perfectly set up for at least one sequel. I'm disappointed to learn that most of Alien Covenant runs down the familiar story line of a monster movie. Hopefully, it will answer some questions or bring closure to Prometheus, even if given only a token opening act of the movie.

Six days to go.

In other news, has anyone seen Life? The user comments at IMDB seem in almost unanimous agreement that it is a rip-off of Alien. Most saying a bad rip-off but some give a lukewarm good review, despite the comparisons to Alien.

I saw Life. I thought it was fun and entertaining. It is absolutely a rip-off of Alien and Gravity, but that didn't bother me.

Thanks. I don't immediately rule out a movie if it is rip-off, especially if the original was bad.

Speaking of rip-off movies, I just caught Money Monster with George Clooney and Julia Roberts on HBO; modern-day rip-off of Dog Day Afternoon I thought. Barely made it to the end.

As long as we're on the topic, anyone seen the remake of Going in Style? The original I thought was outstanding. Despite Morgan Freeman in the cast of the remake, I don't see how the original could be improved upon.

I've read two reviews of the new Alien movie (at The Verge and Popular Mechanics of all places). One was positive, the other wasn't, but both agree it's a horror movie.

Here's a topic: the original 1979 "Alien" was "Jaws" in a spaceship. Discuss.
