Well I just got back from the midnight screening of Alien Covenant and I have to admit that I was pretty underwhelmed by the film. I wanted to like it, I really did. Hell I've been waiting for another good one in the series since Aliens so I was really looking forward to this when Ridley Scott said it was a return to the original format. It looked stunning but it was ponderous and predictable. There was so much potential in the plot that was sadly wasted, the interaction between Walter and David, what really happened with Shaw and David, the horror of the genocide of the engineers on the planet not to mention the fate of the members of the covenant crew most of it was simply rushed through in an attempt to try and build a sense of tension that never amounted to anything.

All in all it was 2 hours of my life I'll never get back again, on the bright side it was a staff ticket so didn't cost me anything. 
Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.

I went to see Aliens at the cinema when it first came out and was underwhelmed by that... To be fair, it had been grossly over-hyped with stories of people running from cinemas screaming in terror...  noooo:

The only parts of the night that had people screaming were the trailers for IT and Annabelle 2, they will probably make my viewing list.

Nah...

I remember seeing pictures in the newspapers - supposedly taken in a cinema - of people screaming and running for their lives as the film was so terrifying...  ::)

Not a bad film but over-hyped IMHO...

Never rated it as an album, imho they did far better before (Revolver) and after (Abbey Road)

The Stones who at the time were on top form were foolish to try and follow its lead
Well, whatever nevermind

I take your point (Satanic Majesties was absurd) but the sound here is richer that the tinniness of the vinyl version.

Amazing that they've been going well over 50 years and still can belt it out.  That Glastonbury performance was brilliant.

Anyway back to topic:  should I buy it like?
Well, whatever nevermind
