Not the Alien prequel I was expecting it to be. I left the theatre somewhat disappointed.

Saw Alien: Covenant on opening night and I think I've given it enough time to stew. For me it vacillated between a 6 and a 7 out of 10, but ultimately I give it a 7. I didn't come into it with nearly as much hope I had for Prometheus back in the day, so that helped. Fassbender definitely kills it as both David and Walter in this movie, and as Walter he makes an outstanding not-Bishop...
However as someone who had dug deep into the lore for the franchise (so far as to have a copy of the Colonial Marines Technical Manual when I was a kid) a few things gnawed at me...
That finishes my thoughts on Covenant. This weekend I also saw <<Blame!>> on Netflix, which is a fairly solid adaptation of the original comic. Very rarely do I see any anime that has come out since the middle part of the last decade since they tended to veer too much towards overly sappy and sentimental for my tastes, but this one is overall pure post-apocalyptic cyberpunk joy. Think the Dark Tower meets Akira and you have a reasonable idea of its themes and tone.

I admit to - like Floride - I left the theater somewhat disappointed.
Its not all bad, it is tense, set design is awesome, direction is solid, cast is great but I feel like it could have been better. In particular there's a lot of things that seem to go nowhere.
Some questions seem to imply a larger aspect of the universe which might be neat if they follow-up on it -

So word is that Tom Holland is going to be playing young Nathan Drake in the Uncharted adaption, that will focus itself as a "prequel" and show the young thief Drake and first encounter with Sullivan.

Alien: Covenant was a dissapointment. For all its flaws, Prometheus is ten times as memorable.

Now You See Me 2 was on Amazon Prime so I sat down to watch it.
Generally entertaining, although I think the first one was a lot more snappier, although some of the twists were an engaging turn on what had gone on before.
Was a shame Isla Fisher didn't return, they threw in about 5 lines of dialogue to explain her characters disappearance right near the start of the film, and then it wasn't mentioned again.
