CULT – 0

VERDICT – 1/5

 
PROS –
1) Matt Smith as Parson Collins gave suffiecient comic relief.

 

CONS –
1) A preposterous and futile attempt to amalgamate Jane Austen’s classic with zombie fiction.
2) Mediocre fight and action scenes.
3) We already have definitive versions of the story with the 1995 BBC TV Series and Joe Wright’s 2005 movie. This movie was supposed to put more weight on the zombie plot but the love story dominated the plot.

Verdict – 1/5

 

Pros –

 

1) Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley – badass bald look
2) Lance Henriksen as damaged Bishop – The only worth-watching CGI scene.

 

Cons –

1) 3 Alien movies and still no Weyland-Yutani sub-plot.
2) Wrong set-up.Deserted prison with no sci-fi.Also too long for such a story-line
3) Unlike Aliens, it’s about just 1 alien. The climax of bait-and-chase plan with closing door is disaster.
3) Ripley’s death. Bad CGI & Anti-Climax.

Tyrion Lannister: I’m guilty of being a dwarf. Oh, yes I am. I’ve been on trial for that my entire life. I did not kill Joffery, but I wish that I had! Watching your vicious bastard die gave me more relief than a thousand lying whores! I wish I was the monster you think I am! I wish I had enough poison for the whole pack of you! I would gladly give my life to watch you all swallow it! I will not give my life for Joffery’s murder and I know I’ll get no justice here, so I will let the gods decide my fate. I demand a trial by combat!

1. Petyr Baelish: Knowledge is power.

2. Jaime Lannister: So many vows. They make you swear and swear. Defend the King, obey the King, obey your father, protect the innocent, defend the weak. But what if your father despises the King? What if the King massacres the innocent? It’s too much. No matter what you do, you’re forsaking one vow or another.

2) Jeor Mormont: When dead men and worse come hunting for us in the night, you think it matters who sits on the Iron Throne?
