Alien: Covenant (2017) **REVIEW**

Remember when ‘Prometheus’ was released? You could say this is a follow-up. A ship is out in space towards a new colony, they need to be in sleep for about 14 years. But something happens 7 years in their sleep, some of the crew members get waken and now they have to fix the ship. Because on board they have about 2.000 colonisers and 1150 embryos.

But during repairs they pick up a signal, a song¬† from earth. So they decide to locate the signal and they find someone who’s been missing for 10 years. A scientist named Elizabeth Shaw from the ship Prometheus. They find the robot, David,¬† she was traveling with and now they have to fight for their lives. As some sort of mist goes in their bodies and few seconds to minutes later something claws it’s way out of the host body and start chasing down other humans.

‘Alien: Covenant’ made people skeptical but after seeing it, it’s actually quite good. Got scares moment and it’s gory as… if you appreciate the ‘Alien’ franchise I’d say you would most likely like this one. We get to find out what happened to Dr Shaw, since last time we saw her she left a planet in a ship to go after someone, been a while since I saw ‘Prometheus’ so I think I’ll have to see it again.

We have none other than Ridley Scott. Does his name sound familiar? It should. He’s been behind films such as Blade Runner, Alien, The Martian, Prometheus, Morgan and many many more.

The Purge: Anarchy **REVIEW**

Second installment of the The Purge franchise. As I mentioned in my last post – a third The Purge movie is coming next summer and I am excited. I love these movies. When it comes to sequels it’s not easy to keep the excitement but this movie is even better. Why? Because we get to see what happens on the street when the purge have commenced.. In the first movie we get to see what happens in a house – here we see the streets and the chaos. It takes place a year after the first film.

In The Purge Anarchy they have really become creative to let us see what’s going on. A bunch of people find themselves stuck on streets when the purge commence. And this one who is set on killing this one person rescues these people and they have to trust each other to be able to get through this horrible night.. They have to hide from 2 different group of people: Military looking acting guys & a group of thugs. Both of the groups hunt people down and bring them to rich folk who got their purge party.This second movie is really good, more action, more blood, more chaos – ANARCHY.

  • Would I recommend this to anyone who’d like to see it? YES
  • Do you have to watch the first movie to be able to understand the second? NO – the movies doesn’t have storylines that you have to watch the first to then watch the second. 2 separate movies in this franchise. But altho someone from the first movie is making an appearance in the second.

You see actors like Frank Grillo, Carmen Ejogo, Zach Gilford, Kiele Sanchez, Zoe Soul, Justina Machado, Michael Kenneth Williams, Edwin Hodge and many more.
