This is a very good edit, as Wakeupkeo does fantastic jobs!
I made the mistake of not seeing the full versions of the movies in a very long time. Some of the cuts did not quite make sense and felt a little choppy. I found myself looking up plot points while watching. I understand there is not much one can do to smooth it out.
I did really enjoy it, however. Great visual and audio quality, and I look forward to Wakeupkeo's next edits.
Removing the bloat of the original Prometheus with "David" helped me appreciate the theatrical movie more, and the Alien: Covenant "Walter" section helped me to understand the choices that were made in Prometheus. My biggest complaint is that Shaw's C-section leading right into old Weyland and David felt jarring and unaddressed in the Prometheus episode and I wish we saw more of the proto-xenomorph in the Covenant episode, but beyond that it was awesome. A solid 8 out of 10.
This is my to go version from now on ! Originally both movies were to me cheesy ... and slow.
You rly did a great job , My only suggestion would be instead of credits in the middle to put "10 years after black screen" and put all credits at the end ! And why not leave as much scenes as possible from the alien race (humanoid) , they are very cool !
As much as I, like wakeupkeo, admire Job Willins' masterful edits, I struggled with the latter's non-chronological Paradise edit of Prometheus/Alien Covenant due to there just being too many characters, too many Fassbenders, and too many grey spaceship interiors to keep track of. This "anthology" cut is the perfect remedy to my problem, clarifying the themes and virtues of Scott's prequels, and successfully making the protagonists more likeable and less dementedly stupid. One quibble: I was a little bit fuzzy on Charlize Theron's character's fate at the end of Episode 1, some re-sequencing of that particular sequence might be a suggestion for a future revision. However, the tremendous re-working of the end of the Episode 2 adds so much resonance to this project and the Alien franchise as a whole, that nitpicks are easily forgotten. One of my favourite "rescue edits" to date, I'll be going back to this fanedit each time I rewatch my beloved xenomorph movies.
