Finally watched this last night. Huge piece of shit. Slightly less smelly than Prometheus, but not by much.

After the characters all revealed themselves to be complete idiots once again, I was so fucking in for Michael Fassbender playing the flute and making out with himself. Like holy shit are we really going to spend twenty minutes playing the flute in the middle of a 2hr slasher movie?? "Don't let the bed bugs bite" omfg. Possibly our finest actor.

Also @ the question of the second xenomorph, David (impersonating Walter) injected Demian Bichir with the pathogen as soon as they took off and the other crew was distracted.

it was always fun to have to run an errand for ridley and to show up at like a bookstore or something and pay with a card that said RIDLEY SCOTT on it

more often than not there'd be a big to-do where the person's manager would have to come and approve the transaction

Doesn't the pathogen result in the white xenomorph while the classic black xenomorph have to be introduced through a facehugger?

I don't know why I'm expecting them to adhere to their own internal logic at this point. Fuck this movie.

The way that white xenomorph stood up all straight and docile was somethin though.

More shit like that and less cowboy hats and vague religious convictions plz.

Oh ya, they didn't do anything with Oram being "a man of faith".

Like it doesn't influence his character or actions whatsoever.

Alien: Isolation is such a good game, but it's also waaaay too long. Or maybe I'm just a baby and couldn't handle that much suspense for so long a time.

i liked this way more than Prometheus but that's not saying much

still really have no idea about any of the mythology or what David was up to or what the dusts do but at least they weren't spending tons of time trying to explain it. a few of the scenes were nail biters, can't think Scott has come close to something this exciting in a long time.

wait, is this gibson being cheeky or is he really talking about hicks? i don't remember how much of a role bishop played in his script, honestly:

"As for my screenplay, I’d like to point out that I worked from a treatment provide by the film’s three producers, so it wasn’t my idea, at all, to jettison Ripley,” Gibson said. “Unhappy with that, as a fan of the previous two films, I went for a multiple helping of Bishop, my second favorite human character in the first film.”
