I have the Target exclusive, but I think the disc is the same as all the other releases. It's under the "Sector 87 - Planet 4" menu in the extras.

Finally got around to seeing this. What a hot fucking mess. Ridley needs to let this franchise go. Seriously.

I had low expectations for this one, and found myself rewarded with a good looking flick with some good gore that made no fucking sense.

I've seen this three times now and still can't figure this out. I'm not a smart man and am usually drunk. Maybe y'all can help me.
With david creating the alien species how are we supposed to get an engineer ship piloted by an engineer with David's eggs on Lv-426?

The original plan was for there to be 2 more prequel films. I'm sure the last one would of ended with the beginning of Alien but with Covenant's lackluster box office, it doesn't look like any answers are coming.

Ok, just saw this, so maybe this was covered previously. Does this movie totally de-canonize the Alien vs Predator movies? The Alien species (Xenomorph XX121) is created something like 100 years in the future, now, right?

They were never, ever canon to begin with.

And please don't accept these Ridley Scott sequels as cannon either. Please.

Re: Alien: Covenant (Scott, 2017) The Spoiler Filled Reviews Thread

Well, I loved it - great gore and very tense. Very happy with this one and it makes me want to watch Prometheus again as well. Also, I don't really know what the hell is going either...I mean, was the synth there before Prometheus? how was it him that wiped out that entire species of pasty white people?

And while we're on it...who was the pasty white dude in the beginning of Prometheus? You know, the one they show right at the beginning.

I enjoyed it when I was watching it, but it was a totally forgettable film, I've already forgotten most of it and I just watched it a week ago...

@14:09 - It is ridiculous the amount of things David needed to do to pass himself off as Walter...

Goes to show you how bad this movie is, the writing is all over the place.

I'm confused. Anybody else confused? Was this post written by Ridley Scott?
