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.
8 Studio albums and still going strong, nothing will stop Incubus?
8 has been a long time coming, six years to be precise, since we’ve last received a full-length album from the boys from California (though we did get the awesome EP Trust Fall back in 2015). The best thing was this record came out of nowhere, I only heard about it last November when they dropped the single ‘Nimble Bastard’ with next to no fanfare. Then in the lead up to the April 21st release they shared ‘Glitterbomb’ and ‘State of the Art’ and us fans were frothing at the mouth and couldn’t wait.
