Alien Covenant:Film Review

alien covenantI managed to watch Alien Covenant a day before the UK release, at work. As they was doing a one of early showing and I was working all of the opening weekend. I couldn’t live with avoiding spoilers for two days.  Being a horror fan, I’m clearly going to be an Alien franchise fan. I will not post spoilers.

I’ll always believe that Alien, is Ridley Scott’s best film, he’s done in my opinion. Although the sequels could be questionable, with a mixed reaction fanbase. It seemed like ages ago since I watched Prometheus, but when I watched the current film, Covenant. I understood it. I thought the production and the space scenary was beautiful. Always one for breathtaking scenery and visuals. The cast and crew did a phenomenal job in this masterpiece.

It has been announced that Ridley Scott is going to make like 4 more films in this Alien franchise, to pad out the stoy more. All of which I can not wait for more evolution to the story.  I really wasn’t disappointed with this installment. I enjoyed it, would happily watch it again, and totally recommend this movie to fellow moviegoers.



Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol 2: Film Review.

I was unfortunate to not be able to see this on opening night. Which made for 3 days of avoiding spoilers and reviews like the plague. This proves to be a difficult task, working in a cinema. I’m not going to post any spoilers, just my opinions. My main opinion being that Guardians of the Galaxy is the best comic to come from Marvel, besides X-Men. I’ve looked forward to this since news of the sequel launched.

I loved this film just as much as the first one. I thought it explained the characters a bit more, especially with Peter Quill, Gamora and Rocket. Groot stole the spotlight in the entire film. There’s no shortage of funny moments, in this movie. The movie was beautiful and very graphic orientated, to watch. ANd was great fun to see Stan Lee do a cameo, inside the movie. The cast and crew did a phenomenal job, so a huge commendation to them, The only negative point to this movie, was I didn’t think the music was a great, compared to the first film.

I’d totally recommend Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2, to all comic book lovers. If you see this film, I’d love to hear your thoughts! I’m enjoying doing these short film reviews. These will be a permanent staple to my blog, as I expand.
