Wait… I thought we have Birdie? More Birdie!
I attribute the “getting back at them” to a glitch or bad android or something. Like in the first Alien where Ash broke protocol and all that stuff. Since David is technically an older model or android, he isn’t perfect or fine tuned yet. Unlike, Bishop, of course, you guys, he wouldn’t hurt a fly.
Also, why did everyone other than the two scientists have any idea what they were signing up for? Two years sleeping on a a far away planet that was funded with trillions of dollars and they get a sour-puss, mo-hawk, punk rocker? That is also putting on a bad ass front, he is first to want to leave the cave area because rocks aren’t scary.
Yeah whatthefuck? It was like, “oh I didn’t know your survival instinct was that great”. Not, OH WHAT THE FUCK DID YOU HAVE IN YOU!?!?! Or “You just did WHAT to yourself and there is WHAT in that surgery space pod?!” It was super casual. Because, you know, helping out a crusty old man that everyone thought was dead, is waaaay more important to call all of your attention to rather than some bloodied up chick that the android man said there was an alien baby inside of and was suppose to be in hyper sleep or whatever. No cause for alarm here, this old man needs to put on his space crutches.
I kinda hated that they HAD to show a fucking Xenomorph at the end. I mean, do movies let you extrapolate anything these days? Does EVERYTHING have to be handed to you?
If they really HAD to show the Xenomorph, it should have at least looked better. I thought it looked muppety. I am a firm backer of using animatronic with effects, looks better than this straight CG shit. Also since when do they grow huge in point two seconds? Give it at least two FULL seconds.
As for the alien in her body, I didn’t expect it to be a Xenomorph, I thought those only happened when you make out with a face hugger?
I thought he spiked the drink to find out what would happen, so he could figure out what that stuff did. Once figuring out the alien proto-soup was a death drink, I assumed that he knew the aliens, “our creators”, were not what the stupid humans where here to discover. Him being chided constantly about not being human, no soul, etc, he wanted to get back at them. So he brought old man winter to what he thought would be his savior, but it turned out that they just wanted man-kind dead. So our answer for “why are we here?” was as meaningless as his, just ’cause!
I disliked how the “scientists” behaved as well. I mean, They were archeologists. Essentially scientists touching and finding really old fragile stuff. You don’t want to compromise anything in order to preserve everything. Yet they just pranced straight into that room once David started touching shit and opening doors (why did no one ever yell at him to fucking stop touching shit!?! That bothered me so much). I am no scientist, much less archeologist, but would you just fucking walk into that room as if every step you are taking isn’t disturbing everything? ESPECIALLY with the thought of “this will explain all of man-kind” running through your dumb brain on a distant planet you were brought to by cave evites?
