Movie review: Alien: Covenant

Here at RunPee we make a concerted effort to get the reviews for blockbuster movies up by Friday morning. Unfortunately, this week my heart just wasn’t in it. Not because I didn’t care for the movie, but because my heart was being poked and prodded by a team of professionals who didn’t care that I had a review to write. I genuinely want to thank my readers for being patient (during the time I was a patient) at my local hospital (pun intended).

*Alien: Covenant* was indeed a spectacular movie. Even though it was a physically dark movie, I found it rich and beautiful in its presentation. It goes without saying that the directing and pacing was spot on. The actors did a fine job, but I must give extra kudos to Michael Fassbender for his double role as David and Walter. I could actually believe that I was watching two different actors, rather than one actor playing two different roles.

Fans of *Prometheus* will be blown away by *Alien: Covenant*. And the wait for the next installment will give die-hard sci-fi fans something to look forward to, other than *Comic-Con*. Be strong; we will be rewarded for our diligence.

RunPee Mom is our emotional bedrock. Without her, RunPee never would have lasted a decade as an app (which is since the dawn of time in internet years). She’s our biggest cheerleader and an unending source of unconditional love. She works cheerfully and tirelessly, seeing any movie we ask of her, writing interesting reviews, and being our…well…MOM. Her genres of choice: kiddie flicks, animated movies, emotional dramas, historical features, war films, diverse biographies, and even dense, diabolically plotted thrillers. She knows more about famous and infamous figures in history than said figures probably knew about themselves. She’s the Quiz Manager for the RunPee.com blog, and Assistant Facebook Manager for our social media efforts. If you’ve interacted with someone on our Facebook page, you’ve most likely been given a virtual hug by RunPee Mom.
