What did you think of...Alien: Covenant?

It's been five years since Ridley Scott returned to the ALIEN franchise with PROMETHEUS, a divisive entry in the series that explored the origin of The Engineers and, in turn, the biological weapon that led to the beginning of the infamous Xenomorph. Now, Scott has returned with a follow-on sequel with ALIEN: COVENANT, which again dives deeper into the origin and creation of the terrifying species that's haunted cinemas and pop culture since 1979, leading directly to the film that started it all. While many were mixed on PROMETHEUS and it's ambiguous narrative (along with some not-so-smart scientists), there are also those who loved what it brought to the table. Still, fans of the series wanted more of one thing for sure and that's the drooling, acid-blood monsters with shooting fangs, of which Ridley has gladly delivered in this latest entry, which brings along stars Katherine Waterston, Michael Fassbender, Danny McBride, Demian Bichir and Billy Crudup along for the scary ride.

The reviews have been mostly positive, albeit still mixed to a point, which currently sits at a certified 77% on Rotten Tomatoes. My own 8/10 review was resoundingly positive, but with a few misgivings, saying it's "...a film that begs to be discussed in great detail as the ideas presented and history-changing nature of it are a fascinating look into the ALIEN franchise as a whole." Chris Bumbray didn't like it as much as me, saying in his 6/10 review, "It’s not a great ALIEN movie or even a really good one, but it’s not a disaster either."
