In Reply to: RE: Alien Covenant on video: another downer from Ridley Scott posted by user510 on August 19, 2017 at 10:36:39
The Sigouney series, which supposedly follows in time, has us chasing down these pets, trying to do all kinds of clandestine experiments with them. "Alien Resurrection" was set 200 years after her death by one of the creepies in "Aliens 3".
The latter day pets were genetically engineered/manufactured by David, the pissed off android, based on original stocks made by the blue magoos. We have his motives laid out for us, but the "engineers" motives were left undefined with room for speculation.
The engineers failed at our extermination, and by inference from the Aliens sequels, so did David.
We continue with no reference to whether our survival is a good or bad thing. Looks ugly in all directions. All hail the master race.
I was careful not to add any overt spoilers in my op, and I will try not to add any now.
Yes, Covenant leaves room for a sequel, or even a series of sequels. The new dynamic added to the reboot is that there is now a determined effort and plan to exterminate the human race. This much of a spoiler, I think, won't spoil it for those who have not seen Covenant yet.
...Covenant was a disappointment on many levels. Pretty decent CGI was a minorr saving grace as already noted.
