    Quite fancy seeing Alien Covenant though

    Well i did play F.E.A.R! Shittiest 5 hours of my life! I actually played alot of classic horros! S.T.A.L.K.E.R, Silent hill 2 resident evil 1, condemned (boi if dis wasnt scawey) and rule of rose (highly recommended for any horror fan btw).

Not the most amazing cast in the first two either (although the first is just classic). But Newt was a horrible character (or just poorly acted, take your pick - "Ah-firmitive" or "they mostly come at night mostly") along with a few other poorly scripted and casted characters and plot holes are easy enough to find if you want to critique any movie in general.

    When comparing to the original two, that is actually quite a high score you've given Prometheus and Covenant. Very respectable if you ask me. Agree like Fassbender as well. The secret to enjoying these films is to understand they can never live up to the expectations set by the originals... kinda like when someone covers an Iron Maiden song, it could be done well, but can never really come close no matter how well it's done.

    Have fun!
    Tbh i find the ending to covenant so bad that i would give the movie 3/10! Its thats shit! David is like the most wtf char ive ever seen! Tbh prometheus was much better than covenant, prometheus while it didnt have alot of alien shit, had a good story and gave us some lore to the engineers and shit like that and lols at why the engineers want to kill humanity (turns out jesus was an engineer sent by them to restore peace to humanity, what did we do? We fucking crucified him)

    One thing i didnt understand is how the trilobyte formed, what? Hallowday or whatever hes called has sec with shaw or whatever shes called and now she's impregnated with a trilobyte?

    The originals are still the best.

    Alien vs predator films are better (atleast imo)

    I am glad you played F.E.A.R. even though I didn't think you would have. I am also glad you mentioned S.T.A.L.K.E.R. as well - another great scary game. Funny really because if I think about it horror films don't really scare me but there are quite a few games I have played that really have put the shits up me!!!

    I am a wimp, i can barely play any horror or watch any horror and not shit my pants. Evennif its F'n jason X...

    Back when i played half life 2 and 1, i was so fucking scared that i installed it but played it after 5 months. 5 MONTHS. Same with doom. Gotta gather my courage...

    I only play horrors when my friends come over, or when i come over, i played most of the games i mentioned with one of my friends who is unlike me, faps to horror, he likes it that much. Had a blast! But ofc im not brave enough to play the games again!
    Nekroliun-3119 - Rainmaker Eddie/Nomad, prob both pretty bad

    Free your soul and let it fly! Give your life to the lord of light! Keep your secrets and rain on me, all i see are mysteries!

    Cool article dude, Prometheus really is a great flick. Very different from the rest of the series. But I really enjoy that type of stuff that makes you think about creation... very interesting. The new one picks up where Prometheus left off.... But if you do take the plunge, be aware that after Aliens, the series loses steam. Still, 4 excellent movies in the series.



    Yeah I agree with you blackbolt, first two are two of my all-time fave sci-fi movies. This latest one is by Ridley Scott too, directed Prometheus and the first Alien so it has a very similar vibe and ties both together so well!

    Highly recommend it!
    Actually heard that Ridley Scott has 13 more of em coming out...13???

    Speaking of sci-fi, horror games, and scary soundtracks, have you guys heard of the label Cryo Chamber? They put out excellent dark ambient. Atrium Carceri and Sabled Sun are my favorites. Give AC's Metropolis a try, just for five minutes - you might get hooked!

    Yeah I enjoyed the AvP movies, terrible or not lol, that stuff just puts a smile on my face. Would really like to have seen one that actually only had the two species and no human characters.... the humans are always just there to die and are usually horrible actors lol... that first AvP movie should have been the flashback story of the temple! That shit was tight! Then the humans would have made more sense instead of human and Predator teaming up, that shit was whack!

    I was watching Prometheus last night as I started this post! Had some hardcore Alien fans say they hate that flick! That shit blew my mind but I'm bias as fuck to all these movies... hell I even enjoyed the last Predators movie lol!! The ending of Covenant did leave a lot to be desired but if Ridley is making 13 more lol well fuck, we're gonna need some kinda reason to keep going back haha
