    Alien: Covenant

    ★★★

    While the film was certainly interesting, it felt like Scott is more interested in making a BLADE RUNNER film, but he's confined to the ALIEN universe and is doing the best with what he's allowed. The result, again, isn't terrible, but it is appreciably less than it could have been.

    An excellent cast wasted on Lifetime Channel plot and dialogue.

    ★★★★

    A gripping ride coupled with some unforgettable cinematography. I just wish the tension built in this film would survive a re-watch, but I suspect knowing what we know now kills the journey. We could only unravel Kate Mercer's journey one time to full effectiveness.

    Jupiter Ascending

    ★★★

    Yeah, it's not a great movie if you stop and think about it, but considering some of the negative critical consensus, I didn't expect to be as thoroughly entertained as I was for the entire duration of this film. Jupiter Ascending isn't an example of some of the conceptually deep sci-fi we have loved over the past few years, but it is a lot of the low-explanation sci-fi fun that genre fans can enjoy.
