Re:born (2016) Eureka!Entertainment

The fight sequences in this movie are great, however after watching about 1 hour of the film (or less) you get used to them and the movie does not surprise anymore.

Still worth a watch especially if you’re a fan of  “Versus” and similar flicks like that.

All this on a Eureka!video Blu-ray, with few  trailers and a ‘welcome’ from a part of the cast. Would be nice to have more extras on this one.

Alien Covenant (2017)

It’s one of not many sci-fi films, that Katherine Waterston is in. Sh’es good in it, but seems a bit confused.

The movie itself is more of another alien slasher with stunning visual effects (except the shitty CGI in the alien attacks) than a piece that adds something new to the ‘Alien’ series.

Feels like it wasted all the buildup that ‘Prometheus’ created, there is a follow up to it in ‘Covenant’ but it stays in the shadow of the rest.

Cure (1997) / Foreboding (2017)

After having seen Foreboding at the BerlinFF, a natural consequence was to watch the Cure.

The Cure is hypnotic, raw and thrilling, a 20 year old movie that still has it (full disclosure it was my first viewing ). The last scene is something most of the modern movies (still) lack.

Foreboding has a similar touch, but somehow it’s different than the Cure. The darkness the suspense, and the mystery can be felt in both of them, they just make you wanna watch them till the very end.

2 well crafted films worth watching.

Mr. Kurosawa , I salute you.
