Review: Before I watched Alien 3, I looked up some reviews and basically everyone bashed it. Now I don’t think that this is a great film but I do believe Alien 3 was a decent movie. You can kind of say I have mixed feelings about this movie, but I do feel like it’s a movie you can try out. Worse case scenario you turn the movie off if it’s really boring you. Hopefully you can enjoy Aliens 3!
The story for Alien 3 was decent at best. This story mainly focuses on Ripley, who once again has traveled 200 years into the future and is now in this high security prison, awaiting for a rescue team. The story has some good twists and would have actually been a great end to the Alien franchise, had they ended it after Alien 3.How was the acting? The acting in Alien 3 was somewhat okay. Sigourney Weaver was great in the film, but her supporting cast was horrific. I really didn’t feel a connection with any of the actors and at times they kind of make you get bored. They’re acting just wasn’t all that catchy and you probably will get bored watching them.
Alien 3 did have some pretty good scenes when it came to horror and thrills. What I realized with Alien 3 is that this movie kind of tries to embed the first two films into this one. The slow buildup of the monster and the action scenes from the second alien. The only thing I can say is that this movie had better gore and way more blood then in the second alien movie. There were a good number of kills and the kill scenes were pretty bad ass, so one can say that the movie did deliver in this area. Overall I thought that Alien 3 was a decent addition to the Alien franchise that can be somewhat enjoyable. The story was okay, but it kind of felt repetitive if you look back to the first two films. It did have its moments, which made me think it was good, but overall it was decent. The acting was pretty bad, besides Weaver’s performance. Everyone else kind of made me want to fall asleep. The movie thrived with its action/thrills/horror scenes and the good amount of blood and kills that Alien 3 contained. If you haven’t seen Alien 3 I would recommend that you watch it, because it was a decent addition to the series. The ending was actually pretty good and could have ended after this film. Just give it a try, it wont hurt.
Plot: As his kingdom is being threatened by the Turks, young prince Vlad Tepes must become a monster feared by his own people in order to obtain the power needed to protect his own family, and the families of his kingdom.
Review: Dracula Untold is a action/horror film that tells the beginning story of the feared Dracula. I was honestly trying to avoid watching Dracula Untold, due to all the negative reviews I saw about the movie. It’s just funny because Dracula Untold wasn’t bad at all, it could have been better, but it was a good film overall. I do wish Dracula Untold was a longer film because everything felt like it was moving too fast. This is a very underrated movie and is absolutely worth a watch!
The story for Dracula Untold was intriguing and could keep the viewers eyes peeled onto the screen. It follows the story of prince Vlad before he turned into the most feared vampire we know of today and gives us insight on his decision. In order to protect his people Vlad must turn to darkness in order to defeat his enemies, thus a legend is born. Dracula Untold brings us a more sensitive and noble look at the monster as well as some great thrills.How was the acting? The acting in Dracula Untold was good and highly enjoyable. Luke Evans, Charles Dance, and Sarah Gadon had amazing performances, but their the only ones that had major roles. The supporting cast did good, but honestly nobody else had a big enough role in Dracula Untold to get recognized.
Dracula Untold did lack a decent amount when it came to the scares, basically there weren’t any scare scenes. People just need to remember that this is a action/horror, so there aren’t going to be many scares. They did have to make Dracula Untold a little different from the other movies, because this was the beginning, it clearly would be different from other movies. Dracula Untold did contain a decent amount of blood, but I thought that the kills and action scenes were incredible. Sure there could have been more scares and blood, but scenes like this will always fill that void. Overall I loved the movie Dracula Untold and thought it was highly entertaining. The story was intriguing and keep the viewers entertained the whole time. One problem I had with Dracula Untold was that it was extremely short, I literally felt like I was flying through the movie. The acting was well done. Luke Evans, Charles Dance, and Sarah Gadon had amazing performances, as well as the supporting cast. Dracula Untold isn’t scary and lacks in blood, but it seriously made up for it with the amazing scenes that were in the film. They were honestly incredible and I can’t wait for the sequel, if there is one. If you haven’t seen Dracula Untold yet, I absolutely recommend you go watch!
Review: Aliens is the sequel to one of the most well known horror franchises. Now although I loved the first one, I feel like Aliens is just a better movie overall. This film just keeps you on edge from the very beginning until the very end, unlike the first one where I did get bored at times. Aliens is a movie that you won’t want to miss.
The story for Aliens starts us off exactly where the original film left us. Ripley wakes up from a 60 year nap in that freezer bed thing and basically winds up having to go back out to the planet where she first encountered the creature. Although, this time she is going in with a rescue team to save the colonies that are living there. Honestly this story was just so much better than the original, I was into the movie the whole time. This may be because the setting for Aliens took place in more then just a spaceship this time. Aliens provides the viewer with some great twists and thrills to get us pumped and our hearts racing.How was the acting? The acting in Aliens was excellent, some may even say better than the first. Sigourney Weaver, Lance Henriksen, Michael Biehn, Bill Paxton, and young Carrie Henn all had amazing performances. The supporting cast all did great with their roles as well, this was just an all around great acting performance from the Aliens cast.
Aliens really delivered when it came to scares, kills, and just action overall. There were plenty of scenes that could make you jump and all the kills were great in this film. The major difference from the first one that I believe separated the two Alien movies was the fact that we actually see the alien a good amount of time in this movie and I loved that. This led to some great scenes between the humans and aliens, which the original movie didn’t have. Don’t angry the queen!Overall I absolutely loved the movie Aliens and thought it was highly entertaining. The story was intriguing and did an excellent job with keeping me into the movie. The acting in Aliens was highly enjoyable,it was an all around great acting performance from the cast and everyone did a great job with connecting with the viewers. Aliens also provides us with plenty of scare scenes and some great kills. What I loved most about the movie was the fact that we actually saw the alien more, which led to awesome scenes between humans and the creatures. It was cool seeing more then one alien as well, just really made things more fun for the viewer. If you haven’t watched Aliens yet, I absolutely recommend you go see it. You won’t regret it!
Review: Alien is a horror movie, that is a part of one of the most well known franchises based on the alien creature. I actually have never seen the whole movie, but since I picked up the Alien Anthology box set I just had to give it a watch. Alien was a great movie and I did enjoy the film, but unfortunately the movie really didn’t live up to the hype for me. Don’t get me wrong though like I said Alien is a fantastic movie, but everyone was making it seem like it was so much better than it actually was.
The story for Alien was very well planned out and truly delivered. This movie focuses on a space crew that is traveling back to earth but encounters problems along the way. After searching an unexplored planet a creature manages to board the ship and starts to cause havoc for the crew. Alien provides us with good plot twists and some nice thrills. How was the acting? The acting in Alien was off the charts. Sigourney Weaver and Tom Skerritt both had excellent performances. The supporting cast all did great with their roles as well, this was just an all around great acting performance from the Alien cast.
Alien provides the viewer with some good scares and great kills. Now the movie wasn’t that terrifying there were a few good scare scenes, but nothing crazy. Most of the time I was just sitting there waiting for something to happen, I just wish that this movie could have given us some more frightening scenes. Although, the movie really did deliver when it came to the kill scenes, they gave the viewer a shot at gore and some good thrills. Sure, there could have been more blood, but what they gave us was fine. Check this crazy scene out. Overall I loved the movie Alien and thought that it was a entertaining movie. The story was entertaining and did do a good job with keeping me into the movie. The acting was very well done, Sigourney Weaver and Tom Skerritt were both enjoyable to watch. The only thing I can really say about the movie is that I wish it had more scare scenes and gore. The kills were great, but the alien didn’t really look all that scary compared to the AVP alien. You can kind of say the CGI helped make that alien scarier, but I can honestly say this movie was great. I do prefer the movie Predator though, nothing tops that! If you haven’t seen Alien yet, I absolutely recommend you watch it!
