We can call Upgrade a cross between Blade Runner and John Wick, but if you think you are watching a film based on a story by Philip K. Dick, you would be wrong.
Everywhere I go in the interwebs, I only see people saying good things about Upgrade, so I went in pretty positive that I was going to enjoy this Sci-fi/ Revenge/ Thriller, and sure enough, I did.
Netflix + Alex Garland + Natalie Portman = Cinematic Gold!
We first discovered and mentioned Annihilation to you guys late last year in a Triple R, so it was an easy choice for me to review, and I'm glad I did. Based on the award winning novel of the same name, Annihilation is a sci-fi horror, two genres that are right up my ally. Despite being hit with some controversy a few months ago, I can confirm Annihilation is a massive success for director Alex Garland, Netflix and actresses Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez and Tessa Thompson.
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.
