My Review of Alien Covenant

Alien Covenant is a visually beautiful, dark-comedy of errors. Yes, that's right, AC is not a horror film, nor an action film, it is a sci-fi themed comedy of errors.

Sure, it has its action, and attempts at horror, but ultimately, it's a comedy. Unfortunately, Ridley Scott isn't known for his comedies.

The laughs begin with the opening scene, when David smacks down Weyland, and we learn how ignorant and arrogant it is to construct a machine that thinks it's perfect. After this otherwise boring opening scene, we are introduced to the Covenant, a colony space ship headed to some earth like planet. The ship is hit by an energy wave, which kills several crew, including the captain.

This is the next big laugh moment. You see, the captain is in his stasis pod, and he somehow catches fire. What do the supposedly highly intelligent, highly trained crew do in response? They attempt to the smash open the pod and free the captain. This is hilarious because there is fire burning inside the pod, that if released would threaten the ENTIRE ship and rest of the crew. Why not just starve the pod of the oxygen it apparently has.

We later see the charred corpse of the captain being hauled on a body bag. Not in a body bag, on the body bag. Why? A few seconds later we see that the body bags can be closed around corpses. Why wasn't the captain's corpse in the bag? Well, the scene is supposed to make you feel bad, but there wasn't any emotional attachment to the character to begin with, so it's as tragic as seeing a background character die. Terrible, yes, but no-one the audience cares about, so the emotional weight is lost and it just serves to remind us this crew is actually quite stupid - after all, they can't figure out body bags on the first try.

Next we see the new captain say: "No funerals! Fix ship first!" Bullshit, because we see a funeral for the dead captain, again, maybe minutes later, and funerals take like all of a few a minutes. Hilarious.

Then we get the plot hook. Shaw (from Prometheus) sent out a signal, and it leads to ANOTHER Earth like planet on the way to their destination - what are the odds? Also, what are the odds that a energy wave would intercept the ship at just the right moment for them to pick up Shaw's signal, AND be reasonably close to this planet?

Because this new planet looks good too, the new captain decides to go check it out - most likely breaking all of his contractual obligations with his employer and with the crew.

So they go to this planet, and like complete rubes, they get out and explore it without any form of environmental protection. Again, for supposedly bright people, they're not so smart. Aren't there protocols they have to follow? Written procedures?

Of course, the scene is written this way, otherwise, no Aliens - right?  We then get the inevitable infection of crew members.

This leads us to one of the funniest scenes in the entire movie. One of the infected soldiers is brought back to the landing ship with two women, and stuck in the med bay. The back burster appears and one of the women traps the other woman in the bay with obviously dangerous creature. We are then treated to a Benny Hill sequence of slap stick comedy. The trapped woman slips and falls in a pool of blood and dies. The free woman runs off, gets a shotgun, but comes back to only slip and fall in the blood as well, then she tries to escape again, but gets her foot stuck in the door. She frees herself, and runs to the cargo bay. Here she jumps a flight of stairs, lands, and breaks her ankle. Then she gets a shotgun, fires wildly at the Alien and blows up the ENTIRE ship in spectacular fireball!

I laughed so hard. See, this works on many levels. One level that it works on, is that is subverts the Feminist propaganda that women are just as bad-ass as men, if not more so. They show us women freaking out, slipping in blood, mishandling a shotgun, and blowing up the ship getting themselves killed, all because they didn't follow procedure and wear fucking environment protection equipment.

There are more laughs after this, of course, but honestly, it's pretty stupid, and I only really wanted to talk about the above scene. Daniels, the main female lead is quite conveniently kept alive the entire movie, because of plot armor. She kills 1 Alien by wasting millions of dollars worth of equipment that they're going to need on their new planet, how much will that retard their colonization efforts? This again subverts Feminist propaganda.

In the end, it's an unintentional comedy of errors that's trying too hard. Pleasant to look at, but otherwise vapid.

If you haven't seen Alien Covenant, I don't recommend it. I honestly had to find this movie funny, and laugh at its flaws in order to stick with it. If you want to watch it, watch up until the landing craft blows up. You'll get some laughs and won't waste a full 2 hours. If you want to watch it to completion, open yourself up its hilarity and enjoy some good belly laughs.

A Consistent Critic



Sargon of Akkad has been a consistent critic of AntiFa for months now (at least). He has a regular show, This Week in Stupid, that re-caps the events of the past week. This week's video is an excellent critique of AntiFa and its relationship with the media. Even provides a good idea on how o handle the AltLeft.

While Sargon is a liberal, and we disagree on certain things, I'm in full agreement with him when it comes to AntiFa and the AltLeft. They need to be stopped, and we need to call them by their true names:  terrorists. If you can't stomach to call them terrorists, call them criminals. Both are equally true.

Edit: If you agree with Sargon and I, and think that AntiFa should be formally addressed as terrorists by the US government, then you may to sign this petition.

Cultural Erasure

The destruction of the statue in Durham wasn't the beginning. No, the cultural erasure of the West and America in particular started much earlier than that; although I'm finding it a hard time to define when.

Many people have already written about what the destruction of this statue means.

I see it, and I think of Germany.

Germany is so vehemently ashamed of its past as Nazis, that they're willing to import immigrants by the millions and erase themselves. Despite all of the wonderful innovations and contributions Germany has brought to the world.

I think of Paul Joseph Watson's video about modern art.

These leftists, these criminals, these vandals, don't even possess the decency to respect the statue as a piece of art. Why tear it down? Why not let some collector buy it? Why not hide it away in the private vault of a museum? What would they erect in its place - some statue of an androgynous, beastly non-person screaming into the sky? Probably just trash they want us to believe is art.

It makes me think of the USA.

We're importing migrants by the buttload. How long before the descendants of our founders are replaced by immigrants? Are we like the Germans, so ashamed of past that we need to erase ourselves? To that I say: FUCK THAT SHIT!

Yes, the USA has a fucked up history, so fucking what? EVERY country, EVERY nation, EVERY tribe of man, EVERY culture has a fucked up history. We have to accept that our nation made those mistakes. We have to accept the terribleness of those decisions. But we can't accept those mistakes and begin to grow from those mistakes if we erase the history and cultural significance of those decisions.

Look at how we have grown! Look at how we've learned from those mistakes! We've ended slavery, we invented the car, we invented the airplane, we invented the internet, we put a man on the moon, we put a robot on Mars, and so much more!

USA is the greatest nation in the world. No one else has freedom like ours. No one else has contributed so much to the world. THIS IS SOMETHING TO BE PROUD OF! THIS IS SOMETHING WORTH PERPETUATING! WORTH PROTECTING!

I'm an American of the United States. This is my nation.

I won't be replaced! I won't be erased! I will not accept the Alt-Left's attempts to silence me!

I'm here to stay. I'm here to win.

The Left is Gonna Get Shot.

Today, Sargon of Akkad posted a video about how the YouTuber known as Baked Alaska may have suffered permanent eye damage from being peppered sprayed.
I've written about the violent left in my blog before, and shared several other peoples' opinion on their violence as well.
Consistently, the one thing that no one else seems to want to talk about is how these violent attacks could potentially justify the use of deadly force. Sadly, this yet again another example.
I don't know what the law would say about permanent eye damage - would it be considered serious bodily harm, or does it have to be blindness? I don't know. What I do know, between macing people and causing eye damage, bashing people's skulls causing concussions and memory loss, and beating a man unconscious, if the left haven't already justified the use of deadly force, they're getting closer and closer to crossing that line.
The day they cross that line,  is the day one of them is going to get shot, and on that day: we're all fucked.
If any knows /pol/ lets see if we can't expose more of these leftists so justice can be served.

Google Army

Years ago, I don't remember, I once wrote a Facebook post where I stated that I would willing join the Google Army if mega-corporations ever became a thing, because at that time, I believed that Google actually respected peoples' individual, God-given, unalienable rights.

Boy was I wrong!

Let me apologize for pledging my allegiance to such an organization. Google has clearly pledged their allegiance to the false god of diversity. I will not pledge myself to the same false god. Fuck Google.

But, I'm using their products: Blogger, Gmail, Chrome, etc. Well, I don't pay for any of these products, so there is that, but yes, if a better platform presented itself, I will transition.

I've been one of the guys encouraging people that we need a new platform on YouTube. I'm ready to put my money where my mouth is.

Yes, I'm on Gab.ai (https://gab.ai/Bobiojimbo), and Minds.com (https://www.minds.com/Bobiojimbo). I recommend you get on there too.

The next phase is a replacement for YouTube and Patreon.

They can never silence you again once we break away and form our own platforms.

"YOU WANT PEOPLE TO DIE!?!?!"





I recommend that you watch the whole thing, but if you're short on time, just watch the last 8 minutes.

THE WRATH OF THE AWAKENED SAXON
by Rudyard Kipling

It was not part of their blood,
It came to them very late,
With long arrears to make good,
When the Saxon began to hate.

They were not easily moved,
They were icy -- willing to wait
Till every count should be proved,
Ere the Saxon began to hate.

Their voices were even and low.
Their eyes were level and straight.
There was neither sign nor show
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not preached to the crowd.
It was not taught by the state.
No man spoke it aloud
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not suddently bred.
It will not swiftly abate.
Through the chilled years ahead,
When Time shall count from the date
That the Saxon began to hate.

Connecting Dots









If you read my blog, you have may noticed that I like to post videos that I find are all linked together - either by theme or ideas explored. As I've stated, everything is connected. Today, I'm posting these videos and article in order, because I found particular similarities between "the beautiful ones," homosexuals, the lack of privacy and gay pride parades, the Last Man, Universe 25/Mouse Utopia and what is going on in Europe. I wanted to write more about these connections, but then I re-watched TL;DR's video and his ending, and realized he summarize quite nicely all of the other connections.

The last two videos, Black Pigeon Speak's video on CRISPR Gene Editing, and Jordan Peterson and Stefan Molyneux's video on Sorting Yourself Out, represent possible solutions or hope for society through individual choices and the advancements in technology.

Just remember, as TL;DR explained, we must be careful when drawing conclusions from the Universe 25/Mouse Utopia experiment and humanity.
