Alien: Covenant (2017) - Scott
The most annoying part of this revived Ridley Scott franchise is not its first two (and many more to come I assume) shitty movies. It's the Hollywood hype machine to turn the shit into a digestible bits even before the new movie premieres. I saw two adverts floating on youtube that are not even included in the movie. The movie obviously can't stand on its own legs, so they have to have some kind of backing that ultimately doesn't end up in the final product. I guess only slightly but not much interesting part of this pile of shit is a Fassbender on Fassbender action: David, an android from Prometheus teaches Walter, the newer version of the same model how to play flute - "Just blow in the hole, I'll do the fingering." Fingering in the hole indeed does Ridley Scott with the revival of the franchise that should've died with Prometheus.

The highlight of the film is in the beginning few minutes, by killing off James Franco in a cryo chamber in his sleep (he appears in an advert though). But everything is downhill from there. I went in to be mindlessly entertained and all I got is unwanted pseudo philosophizing and lackluster thrills. Alien: Covenant is a huge pile of crap.
