I remember just how elated I was when "Prometheus" was announced. It was rumored to orbit around this origin story, expanding the universe and giving us insight into previously enticing and unresolved riddles of our existence. Yet it gave us nothing but a badly shaken cocktail of moronic screen writing, garnished with some stunning visuals.
"Alien: Covenant" is, in fact, an encore of some of the worst performances by Mr. Scott. The movie keeps teasing us with the themes it tries to portray, only to produce more of the same, albeit vastly intensified action/Xenomorph scenes, leaving little room for the answers to some of the questions that we've been asking ourselves for more than 5 years.
Getting involved with "Prometheus" and "Alien: Covenant" is similar to a friend zone. The delusion of dating is kept alive only by the constant teasing and breadcrumbs thrown before you. The overall content you get for being patient and involving with the movie is an ever wondering sensation of "will I ever get it" and "is my curiosity ever going to be satisfied". The answer is: probably not. Though we will have to wait "Alien: Awakening" and the year of 2019, although I do not plan to watch that movie.
Enough is enough Mr. Scott.
