her -8/10

It has an interesting concept (which is becoming increasingly likely to happen irl in the near future) and says a lot about modern society but it also left me feeling a little depressed about my own situation (forever alone).

The Invitation.

Massive cock tease,
you know something is going to happen but is strings it out for ages with it all going down in the last 20 minutes or so.

I liked the idea of the story, just that there wasn't really enough to keep the film enjoyable throughout. 6

Star Trek - Into Darkness.

No idea why it took me so long to get round to seeing this, but same with the reboot, it was several years after release until I saw it. Anyway, really enjoyed Into Darkness and I have to sadly admit that it is much better than the Star Wars films. Never thought 40 years ago one day I'd be saying Star Trek is better than Star Wars. 8

No way, Star Trek has always been better. You crazy man.

Bladerunner - 8/10

Been meaning to watch this again. A very slow moving movie, but it works. It's gorgeous to look at most of the time.

The 'love' scene still makes me uncomfortable though. I don't know what they were going for with that.

Watched a few films recently without giving a score.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 8/10- really enjoyable characters the plot could have been slightly tighter but no major complaints.

Doctor Strange 5 /10 - the only interesting thing about this is the ending but I wasn't a fan at all of how we got there and not entirely convinced the ending makes sense in the context of the rest of the movie. Cumberbatches American accent was also annoying.

Arrival 5/10 was really hyped for this but just a bit boring.

Strangers on a train 6/10 - Those old fashioned writers can't compete with today's super writers.

Alien Covenant 8/10. Just back from seeing this and I gotta say this is a return to form for the series. I absolutely loved it. Easy third place in the whole saga (not that it's a wholly difficult position to obtain but still).

Fassbender Is amazing and Katherine Waterston & Danny Mcbride put in solid performances but most of the rest of the cast are expendable nobodies. Thankfully there isn't any utter stupidity like there was from the crew of the Prometheus, these are mostly competent human beings. The movie looked and sounded incredible. The music cues from the original Alien were a great touch, too. Got me nostalgic as strawberry float.

More please.

Alien Covenant

That's a big strawberry floating alien.
A nice blend of Alien / Aliens & Prometheus. The music was spot on & a few giggles with the
robot Kung fu
:lol:


3/5

There was one scene that caught me off guard. Jumped out of my skin.

I didn't find it that scary to be honest. Couple of jump scares but that's it. It is VERY tense at times, though. It's got a terrific atmosphere throughout.

Alien Covenant

Haven't seen Prometheus.

That was legitimately gooseberry fool.

Terrible characters. I could tell you maybe 4-6 names. When everyone's defining characteristic is incompetent and/or stupid it's hard to differeniate or care. The 'last supper' photograph someone looks towards the end wasn't a genuine 'wait who are all those people?' moment rather than a somberinb reflection.

The 'threats' look ridiculous and fake CGI. (Also they grow to full size in about 30 seconds now)

Its badly shot in frantic shakes quick cut action came. I didn't even realise a 5th person had died due bad editing and not even realising we wew missing a character.

I'd rate it below AR and both AvPs - mainly cus of massive disservice to the Alien. It's not a threat on its own - its a threat because incompetent crew and writer created contrivance rather any menace or skill.

Yeah I thought it was very unrealistic how the alien came to life in what seemed like minutes or hours. The fights were too easy as well and did not feel tense at all. Finally yes none of the characters except David/Walter and Daniels were memorable.


Very nostalgic 8/10
But still rather watch Alien and Aliens any day. Can't believe they have canned Alien 5.

I found Alien Covenant to be ok but just an overall disappointment.
I'd give it a 6 or 7.

Re:Ending

Wtf was with her standing in front of the truck, which seems to have zero ground clearance, magically dodging it and Alan?

Then just happily some how effortlessly holding on during decompression?

Reshoot or something?

Rating it below both AvsP and Resurrection is a hell of a claim.

Also if it's top three (chalky) are you saying it's better than 3? I'd be ecstatic if that was the case.
I'm seeing this on IMAX tomorrow.

The Descent -8/10

That was far more tense than I expected, mainly due to the horribly claustrophobic setting in which everything takes place.

Some of the characters were annoying as strawberry float though.
