  • Alien: Covenant

    Alien: Covenant

    ★★

    Well, I just got back from it, and that was..well, that was..
    I'm not quite sure how to describe it.

    The ship Covenant, on a colonization mission, recieves a signal from a nearby planet that leads them straight to hell.

    Ridley Scott may finally have lost his marbles. This was bizarre to say the least. Alien is a masterpiece, and I personally really love Prometheus as well, flaws and all. But this..well, it kind of does what you expect it…

  • Beauty and the Beast

  • Captain America: The Winter Soldier

    Captain America: The Winter Soldier

    ★★★★½

    I don't think superhero films should be comedies, history has proven that they work so much better as thrillers. And that's why Captain America: The Winter Soldier is my favourite Marvel film to date, possibly even more so than The Avengers.

    When someone threatens to cause major damage to S.H.I.E.L.D., Captain America has to rethink everything he knows - already trying to adapt to the 21st century, he's making new friends and meeting old ones, thinking of partners lost and…
