Film Fridays: Alien Covenant (2017)

Alien: Covenant seems to be trying to incorporate some elements of what made the original movies popular, whilst building on the lore introduced in Prometheus, and sadly it does neither very well. 

Film Fridays: Life (2017)

In many ways Life is a satisfactory film that succeeds in exactly what it set out to achieve: a claustrophobic monster/horror flick set in space (where no one can hear you scream). But it doesn’t feel like a film that is trying to broach anything new, and it is certainly dwarfed by its predecessor, the genre-defining Alien franchise.
