Alien: Covenant – Movie Review

Following the unexpected positive reception of Prometheus comes the film Alien: Covenant, which is set between Prometheus and the original Alien film. So this thankfully completes the overarching storyline of the entire Alien franchise, I do not include the Alien vs Predator films because those are spinoffs. I went into this film feeling optimistic and […]

Ghost in the Shell: Movie Review

When I think of ghost stories, a futuristic techno-nightmare version of Japan isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. Maybe it should. Ghost in the Shell paints a haunting picture of a world in which the line between human and machine is blurry, we’re talking three-martini lunch blurry. As yet another Hollywood reboot of […]

Life: Movie Review

Once again, I subjected myself to a space thriller as my love for sci-fi outweighed my fear of anything and everything outside of our atmosphere. Luckily, like Arrival, Life pleasantly terrified me. While you can expect some of the typical devices of films of this kind, writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (Deadpool), along with […]

Logan Movie Review

10 Cloverfield Lane: Movie Review

When the J.J. Abrams produced Cloverfield which landed in theaters back in 2008 it was a film shrouded in mystery. Details were released in increments and no one fully knew what to expect right up until its release. This was no small feat in the internet age, where these days trailers get release dates, and […]
