    Alien: Covenant

    ★★★½

    I'm beginning to think that all scientists in the Alien universe are dumbasses. It's the only theory that can explain the decisions that are made by the characters in Alien: Covenant. But of course, if they did act intelligently I guess we really wouldn't have a movie to watch.

    There's a lot to like about Dawn. Like a lot of great sequels, the themes are a lot darker than its predecessor, and that in itself lends an emotional weight to the proceedings, adding to the feeling that there is a lot at stake to the events that unfold on-screen.

    There is a more focus on the apes this time around, and the perfect marriage of technical wizardry coupled with nuanced motion performance allows the film-maker to create scenes that…
