The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Alien: Covenant (2017)

Starring: Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Callie Hernandez, Amy Seimetz, Demian Bichir, James Franco, Guy Pearce, Noomi Rapace
Director: Ridley Scott

A colony ship comes across a new planet that harbors a horrible secret.

My Take:
I am not going to pretend like there aren't complaints and faults with the movie. There are many: smart people doing dumb things, little character development, disappointing CGI, a completely obvious ending, and what feels like a short run time (even at two hours). However there is still enough to keep me sucked in. Like most fans, I had hoped the prequel trilogy would be more than it's turned out to be. At this point, it is what it is and maybe the next one will sum things up.

Rating: In the middle (but damn if I still dont love this franchise)
