Before we begin let's just get one thing straight... Han shot first.
Who would have thought exactly 40 years ago, a film would be released, that would take the world by storm, amass one of the most fanatical followings in pop culture and spawn one of the largest franchise in history that is still going today? Yup, I’m finally talking about Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope.
Of course New Zealand would create a Zombie Sheep film...
What is New Zealand famous for? The super hot All Blacks, The extremely long Lord Of The Rings movie trilogy + spinoffs and obviously sheep... Because there are literally millions of them, to be specific there are 7 sheep for every human in the country. So it came pretty natural for writer and director Jonathan King to centre this movie on his national animal… I'm guessing also because they cost less than actors and are not as much divas.
Is Covenant worthy of the Alien Title? Yes, it's not as bad as Alien 4.
For those of you who keep up to date with our Weekly Roundups will know I’ve been waiting for this film for a long time. I’ve been a fan of the franchise almost as long as I’ve loved Star Wars. Some of my earliest movie memories were watching Aliens, before running around the back garden with my toy guns shooting imaginary Xenomorphs.
The best Metalcore album in 2017 so far.
While She Sleeps, the British metalcore band out of Sheffield are lucky. Having found success in the last couple of years they risked it all when they left their major label, went with an independent one and started a PledgeMusic campaign to raise the funds needed, fortunately the group’s fans are a loyal bunch and supported them all the way, leading to the release of While She Sleeps’ third album, You Are We on the 21st of April.
I am Groot!
I was debating just writing "I am Groot" until the word count was about 350, drop a score and be done with it. While this would have got a few chuckles, I figure letting you know why you should go see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is a much better idea. While I reviewed Vol. 1 not that long ago and told you I really loved it, even went so far to call it one of my favourite films of that year, I can happily say I enjoyed Vol. 2 as much if not more.
