Alien: Covenant got delayed while Prometheus 2 is being made. A shame because I think people were asking for Alien more than Prometheus. The film which "definitely isn't an Alien prequels" and totally was.

Alien Covenant is promethius 2, The film that is coming out this year,  Alien 5 was put on hold until Alien Covenant aka promethius 2 comes out as Ridley Scott did not want his P2 spoiled by alien 5 storyline.   It has sort of knackered it up as Sigorney weaver has signed for 2 more Avatar movies which she has to do first before Alien 5 ,   Bit of a bummer as i would of loved to see Alien 5 first, also means the films a long way off :(

Sorry, you're right, Alien 5 is what I meant. Haven't been paying much attention to the titles.

I think it's greedy of Ridley personally, everyone was very excited at the idea of a Blomkamp Alien movie.

Yes your correct about Ridley been greedy,  Just hope his film cuts the mustard as a lot is hanging on it,   Blomkamp is a die hard fan of aliens so hopefully he will give the fans what they want bringing back Hicks and Newt was a winner of an idea from him :)

My friend once summed up Prometheus perfectly. "It's the first half hour of a brilliant film we've already seen, dragged needlessly into two hours"

I was very wound up seeing it, I knew the guys supplying a lot of gear and it started off being called "the alien prequel", then after a couple of months they said "Nope, it's called prometheus now and it is a stand alone story" then I watched it and thought "Right...."

Ridley is one of the most overrated directors on the planet. Yes he's had some great hits, but far more misses. His brother was more consistent I think. In fact, I think Joel Schumacher has a higher hit rate (there's a controversial opinion).

The Martian was pretty decent but it could have been directed by literally anyone, no real sense of Ridley about it.

Yes Prometheus was not the best, A good movie to me imo is one you will watch again and again from time to time, and i have only watched Prometheus twice. Story line was dead with no true content.  Best film imo from Scott was Kingdom of Heaven.

Watched it yet @silverfrost?

So where do I start after 2 months?

1. Deepwater Horizon 8.5/10. Awesome movie only slightly spoilt by the fact you know what is going to happen as it is the story of the piper Alpha oil rig.

2. Secret life of Pets. 9/10 grandaughters favourite new movie with lots of adult style jokes as well "Why are you laughing Grandad?" erm........he laughed so hard he pooped and now the cat is playing with it...."Grandad, that isn't funny, he must tell his mommy he is sorry".......... 

3. Arrival. 9/10. Amy Adams makes the movie but a great story.

4. Kubo of the 2 Strings.....and Hunt for the wilderpeople 10/10 and reiterating previous reviews, these movies are absolutely 100% MUST SEE's.

Desperate to see Arrival. Missed it at the cinemas but it has just shown up on Amazon. So will rent it shortly.

Logan is getting very good reviews but I'm not sure I can be arsed to go to the cinema for it.

Hunt for the Wilderpeople is just unbelievably good - so many laugh out loud moments. Hilarious, sad, joyous. Just watch it. If you don't like pigs being killed then close your eyes for about 2 minutes.

Watched Hacksaw Ridge last night. Film is brilliant but F***, what an amazing true story!

Is the price for that bit in Yen or £?

Watched Hacksaw Ridge as well Saturday night. Whilst the movie isn't exactly what you would expect it is raw, vicious, shows the reality of war, blood guts, body parts and decaptations abound whilst you actually feel its real. The backdrop of the story and the character building is very good, so much so that you really feel for them. From the moment they land on Okinawa, I was at the edge of my seat until the end. And the lovely touch at the end interviewing a couple of the real people. It was so well acted and so well produced and Directed I think I can honestly say it is one of my all time great movies with a heart warming/rending story. Absolutely 10/10 and well deserved. 

Glad you watched Hunt for the Wilderpeople Ant. Now try Kubo of the two strings. It's animation but not mainstream kind.

Watched Trainspotting 2 last night.  Excellent film, I loved it - but seeing (and perhaps knowing) the original well is recommended, possibly even a must.

I guess if I were to be critical, it's not as good as the original, but those are big boots to fill.

The original was like a life changing experience, and possibly the best bit of anti-drugs paraphernalia ever made, combined with a great story, amazing acting, and a phenomenal sound track, and near perfect setting..

The sequel tries to emulate this, and succeeds to a point.  It gets the music right, and the humour, and the character progressions too.  It has a certain air of 'homage to the original' about it though.

Not a film but I have watched Goliath on Amazon Prime and it is probably the best TV series I have ever seen. Billy Bob Is bloody brilliant playing a washed up lawyer. Make sure you get to the end of episode either 3 or 4 it is a shocker. Truely brilliant. Pretty sure BBT got a well deserved golden globe for it 

If you haven't seen it, please give it a go it was worth the £80 a year just for that.

I watched that too @Dan E and totally agree. Bloody brilliant and a great piece of acting.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

I am really pleased you agree, let's hope a few others give it a go. Apparently another is on its way that's going to be a very difficult second album. 

Get on it chaps, don't blame us two for you going to bed at 6am though. My wife loved it to.

My review of the new McLaren movie. I quite enjoyed it. Not particularly incisive or trying to push an agenda, more a loving tribute to a very talented man who was very much in the Chapman mould.

Would definitely appeal to any fans of that era of motoring, plenty of footage I hadn't seen before and learned a bit about a man I really knew nothing about.

Last week I got to finally see the "Real person" version of Beauty and the Beast. And I have to say..........I loved it! All those great songs, live action mixed with CG that is so good you will believe it's real and of course, I had to shed a tear! Wouldn't be disney if I didn't! Emma Watson was brilliant and sings all her own songs and WOW! What a voice! 9.5/10
 

 

My Grandaughter wanted me to watch "Sing" with her and again, I was surprised I really enjoyed it! Absolutely excellent! And once again I was surprised at the Actors who can really sing! Scarlett Johansson, Reese Witherspoon, Seth Macfarlane are all excellent, story's not the strongest but you really don't care as it's funny, the songs are excellent and overall it's a very enjoyable experience! My Grandaughter gives it 10/10 as she gets up and boogies even after watching it 20 times!! 8.5/10
