We love H.R. Giger’s Alien monsters: the intergalactic gothic superbeasts that look like a combination of male and female genitalia who will ruin your day if they don’t impregnate you first.
In the latest chapter of the Aliens Franchise, Alien:Covenant, we get to the planet of the hunky space jockeys where the evil robot David, played by Michael Fassbender, who like a demonic Leonardo Da Vinci, has been cooking up trouble with the funky black tar to create monsters.
Ultimately, the movie derails into a hodge podge of callbacks to other Alien films, which, like Charlize Theron doing her best Wile E Coyote impression, trying to outrun the rolling spaceship in Prometheus, falls flat under its own weight.
Today, we take a look at the new Alien: Covenant film, our favorite things from past Alien movies, why we’re all secretly rooting for the monster and why the movie and book titles sound like gay Broadway plays.
