I also prefer Alien over Aliens. And I also prefer Alien 3 over Aliens and Alien. Hell, I prefer Alien Resurrection over Aliens. And you know what, I even prefer Prometheus over Aliens. But I don’t prefer Alien Covenant over any of these movies, because it just wasn’t very good.
Watched the interesting Escalation (1968) by Roberto Faenza… weird flick
The Terminator is a top 10 film for me. Oh and fuck the shitty 5.1 sound mix. The gunshots sound like Pringles cans.
It’s a such a shame so many people are watching it for the first time with that dreadful remix. Many people have even told me they prefer it. I grew up watching it on VHS, so I’ll never get used to the new sound effects. I’m glad Image Entertainment released it on DVD before MGM butchered it.
I got the nicely packaged Forgotten Film release for Christmas so will probably also take it for a spin before long.
Yep, I grew up watching the VHS and was horrified when I popped in the DVD and heard the T800’s magnum sound. What the fuck is that?? It sounds like a millepede blinking.
Luckily I grabbed a region 1 special edition with the mono option. I heard the French DVD has the mono track too.
Alien Covenant - Pretty okay
Prometheus - Ugh
