Well, Prometheus 2 is what I was expecting from it since... the end of Prometheus. So maybe I wont' be disappointed haha.

From what I can tell, the people the really enjoyed Prometheus are liking Covenant. Those of us that didn't care for Prometheus are hating Covenant. At least that's how it seems so far to me.

Saw Alien: Covenant today and dug it, though it is a slow starter. I'd rank it as the Best Alien-titled movie since Aliens, so that's something.

Of course, I also really dug Prometheus (except the last half hour or so...). I'd put this one on par (or maybe slightly better than) that one.

Same boat as me. From the previews, I pretty much expected it to be Prometheus 2 which isn't bad for me.

While this isn't a popular opinion, I only like Aliens marginally better than Prometheus. It's close. Not a knock on Aliens, the slow pace Prometheus is just more my style over the James C action flick.

I have a toddler & a 3 week old, but I'm going to find a way to go, even if I see it @ a 11p showing this weekend. One of those I want to experience on the big screen with an ICEE.

Thanks for the no spoilers gents. Checking out of this thread until I see it.

Just got back from seeing AC. I enjoyed it.
David! I hate you for what you did to Shaw! I hope Daniels somehow survives.

I also enjoyed Prometheus. I'm looking forward to the next entry.

BTW: Can they retro-activly re-title Prometheus to Alien: Prometheus, please?

That is what it should have been called. Yes.

Alien Iso is great. This sounds to be a shooter. Well, can't be worse than Marines can it?
