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.
Booking tickets for two 70mm roadshow version screenings in one day was not a mistake. This has been / is the full cinematic experience.
If you have the opportunity to watch it from a 70mm film print , Do it!
I could write how good the movie is, but there are many, many reviews on the internet.
The only bad thing : In Europe that they don’t give you a nice paper program, as they do it in the US, but it is the only dislike I have.
Mr CINERAMA FRANCE – François Carrin, the owner of the film projection equipment, gave a nice introduction, showed some film prints and a lens during the intermission, which was a nice addition to the event.
I will watch it few more times in a theatre, and I hope the 70mm copies will be still in circulation for some time.
Thank you Mr Tarantino for one of the best cinematic christmas days ever.
