    Really beautiful book of images and notes from the production of the film. It covered so much of the film I feel some of the subjects could have been looked at with a bit more detail, but overall a very enjoyable dissection of the film. 4.5/5

    For as long as I can recall I have been an Alien fan. My first experience with the series was watching Aliens as a child with, of all people, my grandmother (with whom I also first watched Terminator, the Batman movies, and more). It wasn’t until I was older that I was allowed to see Alien but upon my first viewing, that film heightened my interest and appreciation for sci-fi and horror.Naturally, there’s a lot that goes into making any movie.

My first experience with the series was watching Aliens as a child with, of all people, my grandmother (with whom I also first watched Terminator, the Batman movies, and more). It wasn’t until I was older that I was allowed to see Alien but upon my first viewing, that film heightened my interest and appreciation for sci-fi and horror.Naturally, there’s a lot that goes into making any movie. However, when it comes to the classics, books that focus on the “art and making” of various films are, in my opinion, priceless. So of course I was thrilled when the opportunity to review The Art and Making of Alien: Covenant by Simon Ward was presented to me.Much like any book, The Art and Making of Alien: Covenant starts with introducing the characters as well as the actors that portray them. It should go without say that the book is very heavy in the spoiler area, so if you haven’t seen the movie yet it might be best to avoid breaking open the pages prior to a viewing. But, if you’ve seen it or, like me, don’t care all that much about spoilers, then the first thing you’ll notice is the gorgeous full page image of an unrecognizable alien. We’ll learn what this is later, but in case you haven’t seen the movie I don’t want to spoil anything.Full Review Here: https://www.heypoorplayer.com/2017/06...

    "there had never before, and has never been since, a monster like it. It is unfeeling, emotionless, relentless, nauseating, and seductive all at once." i actually want them to publish an anthology just on alien schematics: its biology, behaviour, design (visual/sound), origin, biblical references. i would be happy with even just a art book compiled of sketches for the franchise design
