The Alien just Isn’t as Impressive

aliencovenantneoxenoI wonder if I’m alone here. The alien from the Alien: Covenant Trailer just isn’t all that impressive to me. The aliens in the original trilogy were all people in costume. The bodies were real and looked like something that could be touched. It’s what made it that much scarier, the idea of one of these things coming after you down a narrow corridor.

When I saw the trailer, the Alien was fast and it moved with the speed that modern graphics and film techniques can make possible. But it just didn’t have the same feel of the originals.
