Alien: Covenant has a prologue short film

I’m going to try an keep calm throughout this recap of what we just watched, but forgive me if I go off a bit off the rails. I’ve been so excited for this movie, I can barely contain myself.

Ok, so what does this little prologue short film tell us about Alien: Covenant? For one, James Franco is the captain of this mission. It will be interesting to see what kind of captain he is.

Michael Fassbender is back as an android, and in this short we see him playing Walter. A totally new andriod. (he will also be reprising his role as David).

Danny McBride, as always, steals the show. He waits until Captain Branson (Franco) hits the sleep chamber before throwing on a cowboy hat and leading the crew in pre-sleep festivities.

We now know that the Covenant ship is on a “large-scale colonization” mission, which means a few things. One, this storyline is independent of Prometheus; although I obviously suspect a crossover of characters with Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender’s casted into this movie. And two, this adds a new aspect to the Alien franchise…significant others. It looks as though the crew on this mission are largely husbands and wives tasked with colonizing a new planet. This will surely invoke all types of interesting survival instincts when the shit inventively hits the fan.

Speaking of, how about the choking bit in this short?! I was half-expecting a tiny xenomorph to launch itself from her chest, but then Walter comes over and defuses the tension. If this is just a glimpse of things to come, then I think it’s safe to say Ridley Scott has another terrifyingly suspenseful thriller on his hands.

Lastly, I think we have found our protagonist. Katherine Waterston (you might recognize her from Fantastic Beasts) is playing a character named ‘Daniels’ in Covenant. So, what does this short tell us about her character? For one, she’s the take charge type. She swoops in and gives a chilling speech about the coming mission. And she does it without being called upon, she volunteers to give a few words. So she’s obviously the leader-type, even though she might not be in the role of a leader (where have we seen that before?). But, the most telling thing about her character is that she is alone. Yeah she’s with the crew, but look how she is placed among them. Centered, with space on either side of her while the rest of the crew is cuddled up with their significant others. Does she have an S/O on this mission? Doesn’t look like it. All I know is when shit starts going south it’s every man and woman for themselves.

Rhode Island Congressman, David Cicilline, refernces #StrangerThings in his floor speech

Someone’s a big fan of Stranger Things! I love myself a good analogy, and this right here, this wonderful pop cultural reference, is as good as gets. Not only did he get to compare all facets of Trump’s administration to the upside down, but he goes and drops a “coffee and contemplation” quote right on our dome pieces! Wonderful! Glorious! Regardless of your political affiliation, or the size of the stick up your ass, you have to like this.

PS – Where do I buy a “Trump Things” crewneck sweatshirt? Need it.

 

 

Trailer Alert – The House

Will Ferrell, Amy Poehler, Jason Mantzoukas, Nick Kroll and a shit-ton of other funny people come together to make this unique and original comedy. Listen, all the movie studio had to do was say “Ferrell and Poehler” and I would have been in line for tickets. Adding a “This is the End”-esque ensemble cast is just overkill. Overkill that I welcome with open arms. 

Jason Mantzoukas, better known as Rafi from ‘The League’, is finally getting a major role in a comedy, which is great news for movie go-ers. He and Nick Kroll have been floating in and out of every major comedy of the last couple years and 2017 is poised to be their true “break out” year. I truly believe they can lead in their own movies and ‘The House’ should help solidify my claim. 

This looks like a genuinely funny movie and I can’t wait to laugh my dick off at the theater.

A video game streamer beat Resident Evil 7 with just a knife

Not only did Quizzle beat RE7 with just a knife, but he did it while trying a speed run.

For those of you that are unsure what a speed run is:

speed-run

He finished RE7 in just over three hours (The average time to beat this game is somewhere in the 8.5+ hour range) just falling short of the world record. Sure, if anyone plays a game as much as this guy has, you’re bound to find patterns. And slowly but surely you’ll get better and faster at the game. Right? WRONG. When you play “Madhouse”, the highest difficulty in RE7, items and puzzles rearrange themselves. That means you never play the same game twice. Impressive feat, Quizzle.
