Following the immense success of Ridley Scott's original Alien (1979) film both in the box office and critically, 20th Century Fox was ready to franchise their newly acquired high concept horror series.
Alien works ultimately because it can’t help but call out to that hope even in the pitch black of space and in the horrific face of death. It is that hope that wins out, because Alien not only calls, but screams for it.
Following the immense success of 2014's Godzilla reboot, the original creators of Godzilla at Toho decided to reawaken their studio and bring back the classic king of the monsters in a brand new monster film from the writer/director of Neon Genesis Evangelion.
It's not as streamlined and impactful as its predecessor It Follows, but it's engaging, deep, and smart in its portrayal of its lead character's flaws and motivations and the implications of Hollywood's dark side.
