    Alien: Covenant


    Let me tell you a story. It's about a guy named Ridley. Back in 1979, Ridley made a movie, called ALIEN. A sci-fi horror movie, to be exact. It wouldn't be wrong to call it a masterpiece. It's simplicity was one of its greatest strengths. There wasn't much to it on a story level, but holy hell, it was terrifying.
