Alien Covenant

I was planning on seeing this at the cinema but was put off because of the mixed reviews.

Negatives first,

1. You could see what was coming a mile off.

2. The whole Alien birth/growth process is quick and completely inconsistent with the original films.

Neither of these spoiled my enjoyment of the film.

I'd heard things about the second point and expected it would bother me but it didn't. At least not on first viewing.

It looks great.

I'd give it 7/10. I would have been happy to have gone the cinema to see it. I don't go a lot. It's only the Star Wars films I've gone to see the last couple of years.

It's an average score not because of anything it does bad but more because it just not outstanding like the first 2.

It's arguably unnecessary. If you enjoy the Alien franchise and have any interest in how he alien came about then I think you'd like it.

It might help to put a value on this opinion by knowing I think Alien 3 is decent, directors cut good but Alien Resurrection is awful and I will never watch it again.

Green Room

This was very good. Done a lot with a relatively simple premise. Anton Yelchin was great in it. Some absolutely gruesome as strawberry float moments in it. The hand thing, I was not expecting :dread: :dread: :dread:

I enjoyed that movie, Yelchin was good but I thought Patrick Stewart stole the show.

Saw IT yesterday, thought it was really good. Not scary at all though.

Just saw IT and it was good. It wasn't scary or anything else and the casts were great. It reminds me a lot of Stranger Things so I would say... 7/10.

Watched a couple of horror movies in the last couple of days. Bone Tomahawk which was a pretty fun rollercoaster ride until one particular scene that once you've seen you will never unsee. Recommended 7/10.

Caught a weird but very humorous shoddy British movie on the horror channel called Inbred. Shockingly over the top gorefest with a bizzare script and a budget that must have been about £500. Awful but very watchable. 7/10.

I've wanted to watch Bone Tomahawk for ages but I keep putting off because I'm scared of how horrific that scene is meant to be. :slol:

Yeah, it is brutal. The thing about it that stayed with me is how casual and methodical it is carried out. Great movie though.

I'm curious, why won't you watch it? It's a good film.

As for that scene:

Kurt Russell and co are locked in cages when one of his gang gets pulled out and stripped in front of them. The cannibals then use a tomahawk to scalp him, shove it down his throat and then use the blunt end of the tomahawk to knock his teeth out (I think). He's then turned upside down, hacked at the gooch with an axe until he's almost split in half but not quite. The cannibals then decide to pull him apart physically.

I think what makes it have more of an impact is it's primarily a western, it's only the last 20 minutes or so where the horror takes over.

Fantastic film.

Sounds like a perfect lazy Sunday afternoon film.

It reminds me a bit of From Dusk till Dawn in that you think that's it's going in one direction and then it just veers off on another tangent altogether.

I've wanted to see BT for a long time but again, that scene puts me off a bit. Still, I've heard nothing but good things about it.

:lol:

It's really not that bad, I mean it stays with you and all but the camera stays in one position the whole time, not close up showing great detail etc. You could always skip the scene, it's over in less than a minute. Think it was rinks who mentioned a horror film from the 80's called Society, that's a film and the kind of horror I don't get on with, just makes me feel sick! Sloppy OTT gore, no thanks.
