    yeah that damn autocorrect XD I'll be cheering you on!!
  2. Who still uses DVD?

    I bought some DVD's recently but realised it was a waste of time and money. now they are just taking up shelf space as I watch any thing I want to on my pc at a far superior quality to any DVD.
  3. Alien Covenant

    where did that come from? it's not in the movie is it? maybe Ridley Scott said that but maybe he was joking? or is it a rumour? I know there is a lot of people who might say something like that to discredit the movie, but I guess you read it in an interview or something?
  4. Is cyanide poisoning capable of killing a zoalord?

    I believe they would need to eat in order to maintain their energy levels. after all, our bodies need energy to operate. either they eat, or they go in the processing tank now and then to recharge. I think eating is easier and more enjoyable.
  5. Alien Covenant

    Ha Ha Ha perhaps I shouldn't mention that I preferred the prequel trilogy to the original trilogy of star wars what you say about the philosophies that fall on their face... I actually take that as character flaws. a lot of this philosophy is delivered through character dialogue and action. I see this as purely character flaws, that they are looking for something spiritually fulfilling and in the end they just get cold harsh reality. The film never says any stuff outright. the beginning suggests that the engineers created life on earth, but it isn't shown unquestionably. the biological material that goes into hte water may simply be one part among many. i actuality, I'm not even sure if it is stated explicitly that the planet in the intro is earth. A lot of the theme of the movie is merely character motivation. I feel like the foundation of the movie, taking out character motivations, is the same as Alien. Edit: I just rewatched the beginning. I get the feeling that the 'engineer' did what he did to implant some form of genetic memory among the cells of lifeforms on that planet. if it was earth. it probably was. I think that is what it was suggesting. because I can't think of any other reason why these ancient cultures would be drawing a star chart.
  6. Alien Covenant

    I get that it wasn't popular with many alien franchise fans, but I honestly don't think it's that unusual. Ridley Scott directed Alien and then the rest were by other people. Prometheus was the return to the same director doing the same kind of thing. I found a lot of similarities in the pacing, the presentation etc. both movies are very beautiful. Both movies have strong characters who I can relate to. I was never as much a fan of Aliens, Alien 3, Alien resurrection, as I was Alien. I felt like they went more in an action movie direction. Prometheus brought it back to What Alien was for me. I think maybe this is a big difference between me and most alien fans I have met. Most people usually say Aliens is much better than Alien. obviously they are looking for something very different to what I am looking for. When you consider that Alien was primarily about being vulnerable and running away, you might say that Prometheus is the same. they are completely out of their league with no hope of fighting. They are up against something terrifying and unknown. Thank you for posing the question, I enjoyed writing that It actually brings me on to reaffirm what I did not like about Covenant. It was Ridley doing something that is out of his comfort zone. He was not being true to himself. He should have gotten another director to do it if he just wanted to pander to the fans.
  7. Alien Covenant

    I get that, but to be honest, my top 2 out of the franchise is Alien and Prometheus.
  8. A New Kamen Rider

    OK. so please write down the main themes clearly. write them down in one place so you can clearly look at them. like so :- Animals. Martial Arts. are these your only themes? if you have more themes, then add them. then draw little lines coming away from each theme and write down things associated with those themes. It's called a mind map.
  9. Alien Covenant

    he means that out of all the alien franchise, all films set in that universe, this one was on equal footing as prometheus in terms of how much he enjoyed it and both being put ahead of most other alien franchise films.
  10. Website Update Thread

  11. Website Update Thread

    is there any chance of the text being fixed in the user titles? they used to be japanese characters but they have been garbled for ages!

    Don't work for free. it devalues you and disrespects your abilities. when people hear that you've done a job for free, they assume you are no good and it can damage your reputation before you've even started to build it.
  15. Does Apollon's name help tell us who he is?

    wow, it looks like the romanisation is pretty confusing? is it not open to interpretation then? does the dictionary have official kanji versions of all the words?
