    Alien: Covenant

    ★★

    Let me tell you a story. It's about a guy named Ridley. Back in 1979, Ridley made a movie, called ALIEN. A sci-fi horror movie, to be exact. It wouldn't be wrong to call it a masterpiece. It's simplicity was one of its greatest strengths. There wasn't much to it on a story level, but holy hell, it was terrifying.

    Over the next few decades, Ridley watched as others made sequels and spin-offs to this masterpiece. One of those sequels,…

    The Lost City of Z

In the mid-'00s, I reviewed 31 different zombie movies every October, four years in a row, for a website I wrote for.…

    Silence

    ★★½

    Martin Scorsese has been trying to get SILENCE made for over twenty years, which is only slightly longer than how long I felt like I was watching it.

    Wait, actually, let me start over and be nice for a moment - because, to be fair, the opening act of SILENCE is pretty decent, and at least sets up what seems like is going to be a fairly interesting film. A Jesuit priest (Liam Neeson) goes missing while on a missionary…
