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.

The Hateful Eight (2015) 70mm roadshow version

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.
