    Alien: Covenant


    Quite possibly the most unambitious of the six mainline ALIEN films.

    I remember back when this franchise was simply known as the Alien Quadrilogy; that is, the four Ripley-centric films. Something I praised about the series was how distinct each of the four movies felt, thanks to having four very different directors who were each talented in their own right.

Initially I thought this would be a style-over-substance film, but to my surprise, I actually got invested in the story and cared about the characters. Jessica Harper is really good. Considering how little depth the script gives her as well as some bad dialog, she's able to become a charismatic lead you care about with just her…
