Alien: Covenant Review

Ridley Scott and the Alien franchise are wonderful gifts to all horror and sci-fi movie fans. The latest offering and third one of the franchise directed by Scott is titled Alien: Covenant. Its intended as the sequel to the Alien prequel Prometheus. If you are an Alien series enthusiast  then I would recommend seeing it of course. It’s a quality sci-fi action drama that will entertain you and attempt to answer some of the lingering questions from the previous films.

Free Fire: Review

Free Fire is a one dimensional film with a great cast. It all takes place during one evening and for the most part it consists of people shooting at eachother for 85 minutes. There is a dash of humor, which at times feels out of place. That becomes the core of the film, violence and misplaced humor. Read the rest of this entry »
