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.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) **REVIEW**

Ever since I saw the trailer for this film I wanted to see it, then I saw it few days ago and I was left a little disappointed. It felt rushed and short even though it’s 2 hours long. But the film got it’s charm. And Eddie is one of them.

Newt arrives to New York with a bag filled with magical animals that normally would be killed on sight by the magical world, but he saves them to write a book about them so people will understand them better. But.. one of them gets lose in New York and now he have to find them to only smash into a human who see’s him do magic and he’s not aware of the American magical laws. So he and the human sort of runs away after being arrested. He finds shelter with two ladies from the magical society. The human finds one of them charming and develops a small crush. While they hunting for the animals who later escaped Newts bag they find something else. A wizard with powers who leaves destruction and dead people in its path. So now… hunting down this wizard is a must. At the same time, a society of humans spreads word that there are witches and is on a crusade. But all of this comes together in the end.

The charm about the film is the people, the gang of 4 – 3 wizards and 1 human coming together to fight the evil and find the animals. Newt finds new friends when he’s the loner. We see one wizard who follows the rules to a dot to later break them for the greater good. The human will be one of your favourites, he quickly become mine. And the ending – it will make sense after you getting suspicious of one of the characters. Also..  we get a small glimpse of Johnny Depp.

Actors: Eddie Redmayne, Colin Farrell, Katherine Waterston, Samantha Morton, Dan Fogler, Ezra Miller, Faith Wood-Blagrove, Jen Murray, Johnny Depp and many more.
