Alien3 Review

Alien3

Alien3 is an odd one. It went through hell during development, leading to filming starting before the script was even finished, and the end result was pretty poor. The alternate edit, known as “The Assembly Cut”, helps it a bit (apart from one scene which I’ll get to later) but it’s still a mess. Not a bad film, but not a particularly good one either. Let’s take a look at it anyway… because otherwise this would be a very short blog…

Aliens Review

Aliens

Aliens is always a tough one when it comes to “what are the best sequels”, because it’s hard to say if it’s better than the first because it’s pretty much in a whole new category. Alien is sci-fi horror, Aliens is sci-fi action (with some horror still) and therefore it’s really down to which kind of film you prefer. Either way, Aliens is a great film, and more than deserves its reputation as a great sequel, whether you prefer it over the original or not. Let’s take a closer look!

Alien Review

Alien

“In space no one can hear you scream” is one of the best tag lines in movie history, and sure enough, it’s tagged on to one of the best sci-fi films in history… which is also a great horror movie! Kicking off Alien week with Alien, and although the sequel is great in its own category, I feel it’s personally safe to say that the series never reaches the heights this first film created. So let’s take a look at it!

DW: Time in Office Review

DW Time in Office

Before we move on to a new Sixth Doctor trilogy, the Main Range take a one-release detour and gives up the Fifth Doctor, but not as we know it! Time in Office is actually a genuinely funny story focusing on the idea that The Doctor has been caught and forced to become President, a role he accepted in the past. With four distinct parts and plenty of fun, with both Tegan and Leela along for the journey. Let’s take a look at it then!

DW: The Silurian Candidate Review

DW Silurian Candidate

I had high hopes for The Silurian Candidate, one of two Main Range audio releases this month, but sadly it was far too concerned with lampooning Donald Trump than it was telling a new or interesting story with the Silurians. Sadly that’s another 7th Doctor / Ace / Mel trilogy in the Main Range that just hasn’t worked, although at least this time the lead trio weren’t really the problem… let’s take a closer look…

Alien Week next week!

Quick little notice…. thingy, next week, to “celebrate” the blu-ray (and DVD!) release of Alien: Covenant, I’ll be doing an “Alien Week”. Much like my Resident Evil week two months ago, it will cover the series, this time of films only, though I’ll be doing it in release order rather than in-universe chronological order, like I would normally do. This is because I haven’t actually seen Covenant yet, so I have to watch and review it during the week itself, so couldn’t place it second in line. Basically, it will be like this:

Monday 18th: Alien Review

Tuesday 19th: Aliens Review

Wednesday 20th: Alien3 Review

Thursday 21st: Alien Resurrection Review

Friday 22nd: Prometheus Review

Saturday 23rd: Alien Covenant Review.

As per usual there will be other reviews going up I’m sure, but these are actually set in stone. Hope you (and I) enjoy!

Galactica 1980 – Episodes 6 – 10 Review

Galactica 1980 P2

Galactica 1980 comes to a close already, though given the “quality” I’m not really surprised the show fell flat on its face. Just like the first five there are a few brief ideas that work, but far too much that doesn’t, apart from the last episode, which focuses on Starbuck from the Original Series, that’s actually good! Hooray! Let’s take a closer look at the end of the original Battlestar Galactica run…
