  • 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...

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

    While it’s still unclear if Fox has given up on the franchise, it appears Scott is content with letting Alien die after multiple sequels failed to generate much interest from audiences.

    There has been a few success through the summer months, whether it was Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, Wonder Woman or Dunkirk, but there have been a fair few disappointments as well and perhaps none more so than Ridley Scott’s, Alien: Covenant.

    Mixed reviews coupled with a lacklustre box office ($232million worldwide with only $74million grossed in the US) led to the film being labelled one of the biggest let-downs of the year. Everything seemed to be going for the film, which was more of…

    Every so often to sit down to watch a film and leave feeling as though you hadn’t experienced the movie the director had intended you to see. The Snowman is one such film – at least you certainly hope that to be the case, because if this is the film that the director had intended we see, then someone may need to have a quiet word with Tomas Alfredson.

    It’s marmite time at the multiplexes again this month as legendary filmmaker Terrence Malick returns to the silver screen with his latest opus Song to Song, which concludes the director’s latest phase of work. Starting with 2011’s The Tree of Life, this phase of Malick’s illustrious career has been described as either a work of an artist at the top of his game or pretentious nonsense that drifts off into its own little world leaving the viewer puzzled, perplexed or both. But stick with us,…

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

  • Trespass Against Us Review

    When leaving the two lead roles in the hands of actors of the calibre of Fassbender and Gleeson, it works not only as a stamp of quality on proceedings, but adds such a degree of nuance and subtlety, which enriches the layered dynamic between the two characters.

  • What we look for in Oscar-winning performances - and what we should look for instead

    Did Leonardo DiCaprio really deserve that Oscar? Who should win this time? The lead Actor and Actress race is a cosmic event that will determine nothing less than the fate of the entire human race. Honestly, it doesn’t feel like that much of an exaggeration.
