    Doomed to Die

    ★★½

    Mr. Wong and a girl reporter investigate a shipping magnate's murder.
    Second-rate, run-of-the-mill crime mystery in the Mr. Wong series with implausible, complicated plot; one of the minor entries in the series.

  • Messidor

    Messidor

    ★★★½

    Two young women from very different backgrounds journey into the countryside seeking respite from unsatisfactory lives and relationships, but ultimately find that there is no way back to the world they once knew.
    From memory: A fascinating Swiss road movie with multi-layered aspects to its story, drifting from an outsider utopia to a nightmare.

  • Alien

    Alien

    ★★★★

    The commercial vessel Nostromo receives a distress call from an unexplored planet, and after searching for survivors, the crew heads home only to realize that a deadly bioform has joined them.
    Superbly directed and highly suspenseful sci-fi thriller, the decrepit spaceship design and especially the truly abhorrent creation of the alien still influence sci-fi and horror movies to this day.

  • Blade Runner

    Blade Runner

    ★★★★

    A blade runner must pursue and try to terminate four replicants who stole a ship in space and have returned to Earth to find their creator.
    Groundbreaking sci-fi thriller in noir style with a coherent bleak vision of the future, perfectly designed, still achieves to amaze even today.
