    Alien: Covenant

    ★★★½

    I was extremely disappointed with this film. Seeing that it was going to be directed by Ridley Scott I had high hopes, but apparently my favorite Sci-Fi franchise is doomed to fail.

    The film was extremely predictable, from beginning to end. The only extent of character development seems to be through their really confusing and pointless marital relationships with each other. It was not scary, at all. I feel like they are just adding more and more characters in these films so they can just kill them off and avoid doing anything suspenseful.

    An absolutely stunning spectacle. To see such an epic Kurosawa film in living color, my mouth was hanging open half the time. This is certainly Kurosawa at his best, and if there is one film by him to watch it is this one.

    Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

    ★★★½

    An excellent addition into the Star Wars lineup. Casting choices were perfect, and I especially enjoyed Donnie Yen and the CGI Tarkin. All of my issues with the film are minor, so I'll list them below.
    - The film was dark (lighting-wise), then about 2/3 of the way through they got to a really bright planet, and it was really jarring.
    - Jyn Erso starts out being very cynical, and about halfway through (you'll know the point) she suddenly starts talking all about 'HOPE.'
    - Probably more, but I'd have to watch it again and take notes. As I said, these were very minor issues.
