I saw some theaters were going to be playing a marathon (31 hours!) of all the marvel universe movies before the release of whatever the next one is. My question- does anybody still watch them? I canít remember the last one I saw in theaters, and Iíd have to go back even further to remember one I really enjoyed.

Was it really though, or is that white guilt speaking?

Just saw Django unchained. It was pretty decent... Tarantino has a unique style. I kind of feel like GTA 5 pulls off that sort of thing better than he does nowadays though.

So I finally watched Alien:Covenant yesterday.


SPOILERS AHEAD
















Perfect sunday afternoon entertainment. Was it amazing? No

Was it a total abomination worthy of all the 1/10 votes on IMDB? Don't be daft.

It was probably 4.5 or 5/10.

Yes, there's plenty about it that doesn't make sense at all (I have no idea why pathogen bombs were dropped or how he even got around to dropping them on the engineer colony, or what that humanoid looking alien was about) but was it big budget, slickly produced sicfi that jotted along at a decent pace? Yep.

Fassbender acted circles around most of the cast and it's beautifully shot in places. It does feel however as if some of the film was palmed off to a sub director. There's moments of Scott, then there's moments that feel like any other working director.

I will say in hindsight it makes Prometheus look *even* better as it was much more cohesive in aesthetic and atmosphere, and also feel that Scott using 6 different VFX houses for Covenent was a mistake that clearly visible throughout the film.

I doubt I'd watch it again, but I'll gladly say I've seen a dozen other far worse decent budget scifi films. I also think people have a rose tinted nostalgia for the the first Alien(s) films - when the baby alien first pops out of the tummy, it looks like a hand puppet and and speeds across the floor like a muppet running. I actually giggle when I see it now.

You've just validated my decision not to bother seeing it when it was in the cinema.

This just in: 39 year old film has dated special effects. Next you'll be telling us that Jaws is overrated because the shark looks fake.

I'd agree that it wasn't worth the price of entry in to cinema but perfectly fine fodder on a large home TV. (and that ** was for you and PKC lol)

Not really, and Jaws is actually a great case in point of the exact opposite; Because the mechanic shark kept breaking down, they could barely show any of it and in the first Jaws you barely ever see the shark until the end...and what you do, looks pretty real. Spielberg said it was a blessing in disguise as it added so much more tension and mystique to the film. That's kinda my point, that Alien had poor animatronics and it showed in graphic detail. The rest of the film is pretty much a masterstroke (even discounting some of the overacting in it by Weaver).

Actually, both films are very similar in that the titular monster is very rarely on screen. The chestburster is on screen for literally about 20 seconds, and the shot of it launching across the table is about a second long. When Bruce the shark finally starts showing his face in detail near the end of Jaws, he's on screen for minutes on end in full daylight and it's just as clearly a rubber animatronic (not to mention unrealistically proportioned) as the chestburster is a puppet. In both cases it doesn't really matter, because the film has earned your belief in the monster by that point.

Alien has actually aged remarkably well on a purely visual level. The cinematography doesn't look dated at all. If you Google random stills, you can see that pretty much every shot still looks fantastic. The only other film I can think of from the 1970s that doesn't clearly look like it was shot in the 1970s is Apocalypse Now. The set design and general mise en scene also holds up brilliantly. Everything you see on screen still looks pretty plausible today in terms of its design, and there are precious few science fiction films from the '70s you can say that about. Probably the only thing that looks dated is "Mother", the supercomputer.
