Survivors of an alien attack crash next to a prison and learn that the alien came with them.

This was my first movie with a shaved-headed woman. I guess I was all "oh no she di'int, now wesa gettin serioooos".

In my mind, the franchise was significantly weakened by this movie. It just didn't "feel right". Perhaps the previous two were so good that they became too tough to follow, but after yet another re-watch this movie really just doesn't seem all that good.

Waking from long hibernation, a woman claims to be the survivor of an alien attack from a planetoid which has since become a terraforming colony.

A direct descendent of Alien - (1979 movie), this movie not only builds on but improves on the movie, turning this into a blockbuster franchise.

A crew of civilians investigates a distress beacon, but it turn out to be a warning that they were too late to heed.

Alien is another "first to get there" movie which has set the bar for its sub-genre.

It has a dirty old-but-futuristic look to it that really stretches its technological and budgetary limitations. As it turns out, this has given the movie incredible longevity. For a movie as old as this, it easily stands the test of time.

College kids go on vacation out into the woods, and everything goes horribly wrong when misunderstandings spiral out of reason.

A great movie with a great tone. Really fun to watch, but, as with most of its peers, it's great for just the one watch.

Beautiful Prison - (2016 movie) image

This is the sort of movie that I can't explain without spoiling it.

It ought to be started at 17:10 with zero introduction.

The fact that I can write that with confidence should speak loudly as to its quality. It doesn't have enough "content", and so it feels drawn out. If you are passionate about reality-questioning movies, then for sure see this. Otherwise, pass.

An unaged man without a memory is sent by a secret multifaith order of monster hunters as the last hope of a lineage doomed to purgatory unless they slay the lord of all vampires.

Not a great or bad movie, but still good enough to be worth watching. It's mostly interesting because of its main character, and the rest of it is piecemeal and without particular substance.

I think this movie was my initial introduction to Kate Beckinsale, and it turns out she's a lot hotter in my memory than in this actual movie. Maybe she was better-presented in the next movies of hers that I saw after this.

A girl, hiding in a church, writes a letter to the police who, without evidence, raise a stink.

I couldn't get half way through this. Not only do the various genres in this movie not interest me, but it highlights "listen and believe". I fucking guarantee that's why Emma Watson is in this.
