Hadn't seen the original but really enjoyed this, nothing seemed out of place or jarring, it's honestly hard to believe this is an edit because it's that well done. Very enjoyable watch, thank you very much Wraith for making this
This was a great piece of work. This easily could be released officially to the public. New scenes were added in perfectly, with no change in quality. While I am still disappointed in this film (it's actually hard to believe that Ridley Scott did this!), it is nonetheless nice to have a longer version, and the opening scene tying the film to Prometheus, as well as David's voice-over at the end describing how he came to develop the queen alien was very interesting, Other scenes sprinkled throughout added some interesting context as well. Overall. a very pro job by Wraith putting this together.
Thoroughly enjoyed the extended edition edit of Alien Covenant by Wraith.
I’m a huge fan of the first 2 Alien films, however the original release of Covenant left me disappointed. I originally watched Covenant back in 2017 in the cinema and then on home release and never planned on watching Covenant again. However, Wraiths edit of Covenant has transformed the film. The 1st Act felt like I was watching a whole new movie.
Having only watched the original release of Covenant twice before, I couldn’t pick out or fully appreciate the fine-tuning Wraith has made across the entire film, such as timing and dialogue improvements. There were no obvious issues other than what seemed to be one short sequence of lower quality footage being used in Act 1 for a spaceship sequence (but this could have been black level crushing on my TV). I felt the whole film was cohesive and an amazing achievement by Wraith!
Thank you Wraith, Looking forward to seeing more of your work.
The fact is you will never go wrong watching any of Wraith's edits. His editing skills and exceptional attention to detail set the gold standard for fan editing, in my humble opinion. He treats every project he takes on as though it were his own film, and it shows in the finished product.
Alien: Covenant is one of the worst films in the canon, but it's loaded with solid actors giving strong performances and the visuals are top notch. That's all Wraith needed to craft a worthy entry in the Alien series.
The addition of the prologue sequence pays big dividends later in the film and is a perfect example of how a minor change can have a huge impact on the narrative. There are numerous small tweaks and adjustments throughout the edit and all are invisible and expertly done, but anyone who has seen Wraith's Eastrail edits knows that he is far more than a technician. This really is a new way to watch Alien: Covenant and the only way I will watch the film from here on out.
I can't recommend any of Wraith's work highly enough.
