Red Planet (2000, dir. Antony Hoffman)

The first manned mission to Mars goes awry. Straightforward SF disaster/bodycount movie with the usual nods (astronaut called Bowman etc), though more contrivances than usual. Seriously, guys, don’t take a robot with its “military” mode enabled.

Alien: Covenant (2017, dir. Ridley Scott)

A deep space colony vessel investigates a strange transmission from an Earth-like world. More Prometheus than Alien, this series entry unevenly balances monster horror and teenagery philosophical musings. Odd, but not uninteresting.

Elstree 1976 (2015, dir. Jon Spira)

Supporting actors and extras reminisce about working on Star Wars, and the impact that the film and its fan culture has had on their lives. A bittersweet little documentary which makes a minor though not-uninteresting contribution to the movie’s fandom.
