Any musings about Alien Covenant, Prometheus, or the rest of the franchise?

Prometheus was horrible, and Covenant will probably either suck or at most be half-way decent.

Haha right on man!

Yeah I HATED seeing Prometheus in the theaters. The movie had one of the greatest trailers I've ever seen and was a total letdown. It had a flimsy premise and was missing major plot points. I'm sorry, you don't get to punt these questions to another film down the road. Each film should be able to stand up on its own.

Also, from what I've heard about Covenant, none of these questions such as why the engineers created us or why they hate us get explained in this sequel either. So I really don't think that the production team ever had any idea either.

I saw Blade Runner again and the exchange between Batty and Tyrell is almost identical to confrontation between David and the Engineer. There are even head crushing/removal scenes.

Prometheus isn't half as original as it pretends to be.
