  • Ridley Scott comments on future of Alien franchise

    With the release of Alien: Covenant, Ridley Scott claimed that there would be plenty more Alien movies on the horizon. Seeing how the followup to Prometheus underperformed at the box office, however, many were skeptical about this franchise’s future.

    The reviews sound as if they're written by kids, even accounting for translation... "The Aliens were less than those from 'Aliens' in number but still a lot." “The Neomorph is scary and gross but the Xenomorph is most terrifying.” “Only Ridley Scott could make this film so elegant yet scary. It’s nice that they use some of the same music from the original Alien too” Err, OK...

    "Does Depp belong in the same category as Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, and others that’ve lost jobs recently due to accusations of abuse?" Of course not. His one & only accuser withdrew the accusations after the responding cops were set to testify against her.

  • Ridley Scott admits that Alien franchise is on its last legs

    There is something to be said about a late 19th Century period drama that holds attention and meanders around three of the most influential men in history. Thomas Edison (Benedict Cumberbatch), George Westinghouse (Michael Shannon) and Nikola Tesla (Nicholas Hoult) — all iconic giants of race to illuminate the world. A brisk, pivotal slice of their legacies are on display in Alfonso Gomez-Rejon’s The Current War. Here we have a clash of geniuses, they stop at nothing to reign supreme, taking…

    Interesting review, thanks. I heard they haven't shown the final cut yet, so I look forward to seeing the cinema release. You have a typo in the first paragraph, I don't think you meant to use the word "decrepit"

  • Alien: Covenant review

    Like its 1979 predecessor, Alien: Covenant is essentially a haunted house movie in space with plenty of screams to go around.

  • Queen of Earth - Review

    Illumining the screen with the crackly grain you’d find on a decades-old film reel, Queen of Earth slingshots us into the centre of a relationship bluntly hitting its endpoint. We’re swiftly introduced into the mind of Elisabeth Moss’ Catherine, a darkened playground where the roundabouts are endlessly turning by themselves. Her own fragility is the movie’s bedrock, which will begin to crack underneath the enormous pressures of modern life – but if she locks herself away with a close friend, perhaps she can escape the maelstrom and perhaps even escape back to a happier time. This Persona-style chamber piece is an extraordinary feat of acting and moviemaking, a psychological game of Connect Four that at once holds its secrets close to its chest, and exposes its emotion like a live wire.
