Alien 3. 5/10. Only watched out of curiosity to see loads of great actors before they went and did great stuff, like the bloke from Mindhunter. Clearly this film has been butchered, with some top billed actors like Paul Mccann just vanishing from the story.

Fincher himself hates the film. According to him, 20th Century Fox had no idea what the film would be about (other than obv an Aliens sequel) but they had a release date for it. It had loads of different writers, directors and concepts and in the end Fincher just took it all and mixed it up and released this POS as his first film. I watched it a few years ago on Sky Movies on an OLED, and the special effects for the CGI Alien running around was terrible. A wasted opportunity with what could have been a decent film. Alien Resurrection is arguably worse than this though.

The Sound of Metal.
2019.
Touching story of a rock drummer who goes suddenly deaf.
Riz Ahmed is a superb actor. I thought he was a perfect fit for the lead role in this.
Excellent film.
I would rate it 8 from 10.

Mindhunter?

Not to be confused with Mindhorn....

(Crazy Manx story where washed-up actor gets roped in to help solve a real crime by resurrecting his TV detective persona. Very funny in places and a nice twisty plot, but brilliantly hammy.)
